Rushmere Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Riscemara, or Ryscemara

In the time of King Edward I., this was the estate of Sir John de Holbrooke; but it appears to have passed for many ages, as the foregoing parish of Playford, and is now the estate of the same noble proprietor, Frederick William, Marquess of Bristol.

A villa in this parish, called the "Roundwood, "built in 1700, was bought by Horatio Lord Viscount Nelson, in 1798; and was the residence of Lady Nelson, and his lordship's venerable father, until 1800, when it was sold to Robert Fuller, Gent. It is now the property and residence of Frederick William Shrieber, Esq.1

Mem. October 5, 1807, the Duke of York, accompanied by the Duke of Cambridge and Cumberland, with a long train of nobility and general officers, reviewed the troops in garrison at Ipswich and Woodbridge, on Rushmere heath.

1.  The descent of the advowson is particularized in Mr. Kirby's account of this parish, and also Mrs. Catherine Cadye's bequest, in 1521, towards the erection of the church steeple.
