Culpho Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Culpho or Culfole

The church of Culpho was given by William de Valoines to the abbey of Leiston; and William Verdon, who married his daughter, confirmed the grant.

The family of the Verdon's were seated, for many generations, at Brisingham, in Norfolk, from whence they removed, about 1328, to Martlesham, in this county.

It afterwards was the lordship of the family of Wolferston (or Wolveston), who resided at the Hall. In 1594, Mr. Tillotson saw in glass, in the windows, the following ARMS:

France and England, quarterly.

________ argent; a chevron, gules.

Wolveston: sable; a fess wavey, between three wolves' heads couped, or.

________ argent; a fess dance, between two dragons' heads erased, sable.

________ argent; on a fess dance (3 points), sable, between 3 dragons' (or griffins') heads erased, of the 2nd, 5 cinquefoils, or.

In the 19th year of Queen Elizabeth's reign, the impropriation was granted to Edward Grimston, of Trimley, Esq.

In 1660, it was the property of Sir William Blois: whose descendant, Sir Blois, Bart., sold it, when they removed their seat from Grundisburgh to Cockfield Hall, Yoxford, to Brampton Gurdon Dillingham, Esq., in whose family the manor is now vested.

CHARITIES. The sum of 5 a year is payable under the donation of Sir M. Stanhope, for poor persons of this parish. The sum actually paid is 4 14s. 2d., the residue being deducted on account of land tax; and it is distributed among poor widows and others, by the parish officers.1

1.  For a more particular account of the above charity, see the parish of Sutton in Wilford Hundred.
