Raydon Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Raydon, or Rienduna

This property appears to have passed as the following parish of Shelley, and to have continued in the same proprietary.

A considerable part of the parish, and the manor of Raydon, belonged to Sir William Beaumauris Rush, whose daughter married to Dr. Edward Daniel Clarke, the celebrated traveller.

In the church of Raydon, is a tablet, against the north wall, erected to the memory of John Mayer, D.D., who was rector of this parish 35 years. He was the author of several works upon the English catechism, Expositions upon the New Testament, &c. He died March 5th, 1063, in the 82nd year of his age.

The Rev. Richard Fisher Belward, D.D., of this parish, was Master of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, to which he was elected in 1795, having been many years public tutor of that society: B.A., in 1769; M.A., 1772; and S.T.P., by mandate, in 1796. Dr. Belward assumed that name for a family estate, in the county of Norfolk: he died here, May 16th, 1803, aged 57 years.

CHARITIES. The Rev. John Nayler, D.D., in or about the year 1663, charged, by his will, his lands in this parish, with the payment of 10s. a year to the minister, and 40s. a year to be laid out in bread, and distributed among the poor. A cottage and garden, in the parish of Higham, were given by Thomas Glanville, in or about the year 1725; the rents thereof to be divided between five poor widows, of each of the parishes of Raydon, Higham, and Holton. These premises are let at 3 a year, and the rent distributed accordingly.
