Dallinghoo Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Dallinghoo or Dalingahou

This parish is not entirely in this hundred, but part thereof lies within that of Wilford, known by the name of the Hamlet, and, for distinctions sake, Earl Dallinghoo; but the other part, in which the church is situate, is in this hundred, and called Dallinghoo, without any addition. It was held of the honor of Eye, with three parts in four of the advowson, and Earl Dallinghoo held one turn in four, to the presentation of an incumbent, as of ancient right.

It formerly belonged to the Bovils, of Letheringham; which manor, with the said three parts of the advowson, partly by descent and partly by purchase, came through the several families of Rungeston, Norwich, and Carbonel, to the Wingfields; who, by usurpation, or otherwise, gained at length the whole right of presentation.

In the reign of King James I., Thomas Shaw, Gent., lived in good repute in this parish. He married Elizabeth, one of the daughters of Thomas Fernley, of West Greeting, in this county, Esq. Mr. Shaw was steward to the Earl of Suffolk, in his manor of Framlingham, and several other courts in this county.

He died in 1622, and was buried in the chancel of this parish church; Elizabeth his wife, survived, and remarried to Henry Dade, Esq., second son of Thomas Dade, of Tannington, in this county, Esq., and Anne Ids wife, the daughter of Richard Cornwallis, Esq.

Mr. Dade was Bachelor of Laws, and Commissary of the Arch-deaconry of Suffolk: he resided at Ipswich until his marriage, when he removed from thence, and dwelt in this parish. Elizabeth his wife, died in 1624, and he married secondly, Thomasine, the daughter of John Lea, of Coddenham, Gent., and widow of Samuel Sayer, Gent.

William Churchill, Esq., purchased this estate about 1698, of John Dade, M.D., and made it his seat. He represented Ipswich in parliament in Queen Anne's reign, and married Rose, the daughter of John Sayer, of Woodbridge, Gent., by whom he had issue one daughter, Elizabeth, married to Francis Negus, Esq. It was lately the estate of the Earl of Rochford, and now belongs to Mr. Archdeckne.

In the reign of King Edward II., Robert de Dalynghoo was owner of laud here, which he settled upon his daughter, Isabella de Pratt: in a window in this parish church, was sable, three escallops, argent; supposed to be the arms of Dallinghoo.

ARMS. Shaw: argent; a chevron between three lozenges, ermine. Dade: gules; a chevron between three garbes, proper. Churchill: sable; a lion rampant, argent, debruised with a bendlet, gules.

CHARITIES. The church and poor lands in this parish, consist of seven cottages, and several pieces of land, containing together nearly 13 acres; the rents of which amount to; .30 15s. a year, subject to land tax and quit rents. This is applied in the repairs of the church, and in the purchase of bread and coals for the poor. The sum of .8 6s. 7d. a year, is received for the poor of this parish, under Kersey's charity (see Earl Soham). The several sums of 10s., a rent charge for land the property of Andrew Arcedeckne, Esq., and 20s. from Mill's charity, at Framlingham, is distributed also in bread and coals; and 10s. is payable out of premises in Earl Soham, called the "Stable Yard; "this was, however, withheld for several years, but whether ever resumed, we are not informed.
