Hasketon Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Haschetuna, or Hascetuna

David de Fletwick was early enfeoffed in this lordship, and it was latterly the property of William Castle, Esq., an officer in the guards; at about the same period Edmund Jenney, Esq., was proprietor of the tythes, and not the rector.

Theobald, son of Robert Lord Valoins, endowed the Priory and Convent at Hickling, in Norfolk, which he founded in 1185, with this parish church; and also that of Parham, in Plomesgate hundred.

The Prior and Convent at Woodbridge, held rents, or land, in this parish, valued at 19s. 6d.

In this parish church there is yet extant, a very ancient and ruinous vault, under which is supposed to be deposited the relics of Mr. John Bull, a celebrated champion in the year 1640, and many years an opulent inhabitant of the same parish. It is related that there were inclosed within his coffin twelve swords, and as many scabbards, with this motto, "Nunc quics. Duodecim mihi gladii, et duodecim mihi vagina"

In 1544, Thomas Thompson, domestic Chaplin to John, Duke of Norfolk, held this living, with Garboldesham St. John, in Norfolk; to which he was presented, in 1539, by the said Duke, patron of that turn, by grant from Sir Anthony Wingfield, Knt., true patron.

CHARITIES. A cottage, and about five acres of land, devised by Agnes Emme, by will, in 1488, for repairing the church, let on a lease, at 13 a year: the rent is applied to the general repairs of the church. Thomas Tymme, by will, in 1614, conveyed to eighteen trustees, a house, barn, and 18 acres of land, in this parish, in trust, for the maintenance of two of the most impotent, poor, and aged persons, of honest life and conversation, being inhabitants of the town of Hasketon; such as the trustees for the time being, should think most fitting. The premises were let on lease for fourteen years, from 1826, at the yearly rent of 31 10s.; which sum, after deducting for repairs of the buildings, is divided equally between two aged poor women, chosen by the trustees. Some timber was sold off the estate many years ago, and the produce was laid out in the purchase of certain copyhold premises, which let for 9 a year; the rent is divided between the poor people. Alice Osborne, by will, in 1678, charged the Angel Inn, in Woodbridge (formerly the Black Boy), with the payment of 20s. a year; to be distributed at Christmas, amongst the most needy poor of this parish. John Rutland, by will, in 1776, charged Ins estate in this parish, with the payment of 3 a year, for three coats for three poor men in this parish. Mary Brown, who died in 1820, bequeathed the interest of 100, three per cent. Consols, to be given away to the selected poor here.
