Bucklesham Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Bucklesham, or Bukelesham

But little is known of the early history of this parish. In the 3rd year of Richard II., Catherine Brewse held Bucklesham, with many other manors in this county, of the King, in capite, and because she had taken on her the habit of a nun: she held on the day of her profession, in her demesne, half-a-knight's-fee in Foxhall, Kesgrave, and Bucklesham; and William de Ufford, Earl of Suffolk, the son of Margaret, the sister of Thomas de Norwich, the father of the said Catherine, is her next heir.1

Sir Philip Broke, of Nacton, Bart., is the present owner of this lordship, and patron of the advowson.

In 1318, John de Northstrete de Buklesham, priest, was collated by John Salmon, at that time Bishop of Norwich, to the deanery of Thetford.

1. The author of "Magna Britannia," makes the demesne of this parish to have been in Sir William de Kerdiston, who, he says, died possessed of the same in the 35th of King Edward III.; and was succeeded by Sir William de Kerdiston, his son and heir. This is an entire mistake, and relates to Bulchamp, in Blithing Hundred.
