Ceseforta or Chesilford

In the 5th of King Richard II., William de Ufford, Earl of Suffolk, died seized of a lordship in this parish. John Staverton gave to the Priory and Convent of Butley, a manor here; which at the dissolution was granted to John, Earl of Warwick. The Marquess of Hertford is now lord of this manor.

By virtue of the foundation deed of Ralph de Glanville, the founder of Butley Priory, certain alms were distributed to poor persons on seven festivals in the year, amounting to 8 16s. 8d. per annum, chargeable on some lands in this parish. A mill in this parish also belonged to the same Monastery.

CHARITIES. The sum of 5 a year, appropriated to the poor of this parish, is paid, after a deduction of land tax, from Sir Michael Stanhope's charity (see Button), and distributed among poor persons.
