Capel St. Andrew Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Capel St. Andrew or Capeles

The author of "Magna Britannia," makes Simon de Rattlesden owner of this manor. He deceased in the 17th of King Edward III., and probably held it of the Valences, Earls of Pembroke, as he did Bokenham-Ferry, and Saxlingham, in Norfolk

The church was given to Butley Abbey, by Ranulph de Glanville, Lord Chief Justice of England, the founder of that Monastery, and was afterwards impropriated thereto. This Ranulph married Bertha, the daughter of Theobald de Valoins (otherwise Valence).

This was a distinct parish, until about 1580, when the church became ruinous, and it has since been accounted as a hamlet of Butley.

CHARITIES. The parish estate consists of a cottage, and hemp-land, containing, by estimation, 1A. 3R., in the parish of Butley, being copyhold of the manor of Staverton-with-Bromeswell, which were last surrendered upon trust, in 1754, that the trustees should receive and pay the rents and profits of the same, to the poor of Capel, towards their relief and support. It is unknown how the property was originally given or acquired: it is let at 6 a year, and the rents are carried to the account of the overseers, and applied for the general relief of the poor.
