Foxhall Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Foxhall, or Foxehola

Was formerly a distinct parish, but now a hamlet to Brightwell. About the time of Henry II., Hugh de Dernford gave it to the Prior and Convent of the Holy Trinity, in Ipswich.

The Holbroke family had property in this parish; and by inquisition held in the 9th year of Edward I., it belonged to John de Holebroke.

The impropriation was granted, in the 36th Henry VIII., to Sir Thomas Pope, Knt., who sold it, with the manor, to Sir John Jenny.

The grange, and estate called "Dernford's," situated in Foxhall and Nacton, belonged to the Abbot and Convent of Sibton; and were by them granted to Thomas Howard, Duke of Norfolk.

In 1662, the manor and patronage of the church belonged to Thomas Essington, of Brightwell Hall, Esq., and was afterwards the property of Sir Samuel Barnardiston, Bart.; from whose family it passed to that of Shaw, by the marriage of Sir John Shaw, of Eltham, in Kent., Bart., in 1716, with Anna Maria, eldest daughter and co-heiress of Sir Thomas Barnardiston, Bart.; and Sir John Gregory Shaw, his grandson, inherited the same. It now belongs to Sir Robert Harland, Bart., of Orwell Park, in Nacton.
