British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Rimdham or Rindeham

The author of "Magna Britannia" makes the lordship of this parish to have been vested in John de Brussard (or Bruseyard), of Shaddingfield, in Wangford hundred, who was living in 1354, and trustee to John de Wrotham, of Little Wrotham, in Norfolk.

The Abbey at Sibton, held the manor of Barnes, in Rendham, which, at the dissolution of that Monastery, was granted to Anthony Denney, Esq., and afterwards became vested in Powel, Esq. The entire lordship now belongs to Frederick White Corrance, Esq., of Parham Hall.

CHARITIES. There belongs to this parish three cottages, built upon waste land, formerly granted by the lord of the manor; and a pightle of three acres, or thereabouts, purchased in 1646. The cottages are occupied by poor persons, one of them rent free, the others at low rents, which, however, are not always obtained; and the land is let at 4 10s. a year, usually laid out in the purchase of coals, which are sold to the poor at a reduced price. Thos. Neal, Esq., by a codicil, dated in 1704, charged his lands in the parish of Bramfield, with the payment to the churchwardens of this parish of 2 10s. a year, for the support of a free school at Rendham, and 10s. a year for books, for the children and other poor persons. This is duly received, and applied accordingly.
