Kesgrave Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk


The lordship of this parish was formerly vested in the Holbrooke family. John de Holbrooke possessed it in the 9th of Edward I. It afterwards belonged to the Barnardiston's, of Brightwell.

Kesgrave Hall was purchased about 30 years since, by William Cunliffe Shawe, of Singleton Lodge, Lancashire, Esq.; and is now the residence of his son, Robt. Newton Shawe, Esq., a Magistrate and joint Chairman of the Woodbridge quarter sessions. The hall is entirely re-built, and the grounds and gardens are most tastefully disposed.

Through the marriage of his ancestor, Joseph Shawe, of Liverpool, Esq., with Dorothy, eldest daughter and co-heir of John Wingfield, of Hazleborough Hall, Derby, Esq., Mr. Shawe is descended from Sir Humphrey Wingfield, of Brantham Hall, in this county; who was Speaker of the House of Commons, and one of the Burgesses in Parliament for Ipswich, in the time of King Henry VIII.
