Dunning Worth Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Dunning Worth or Duniworda

The author of "Magna Britannia" states, that this was the lord-ship and estate of Thomas de Brotherton, Earl of Norfolk, and that he died seized thereof in the 12th of King Edward III., leaving Mary, his second wife, daughter of William, Lord Roos, surviving; and that the same was assigned as part of her dowry: after whose decease it passed to his daughter Alice, who married to Edward Montacute; by whose daughter and heir Joan, it came by marriage to William de Ufford, Earl of Suffolk. The manor is now vested in Mrs. Gifford, of Dinton, near Aylesbury.

The advowson appears to have been attached to the manor; the church has been long in ruins, and the parish reckoned a hamlet of Tunstall. The estate was latterly vested in the Woods, of Loud-ham; from whom it passed to the Chapman family; and now be-longs to the Sheppards, of Campsey-Ash.

In 1509, Thomas Seman, B.D., rector of this parish, was Commissary of Suffolk Archdeaconry.
