Rushmere Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Rushmere or Ryscemara

In the 29th of King Edward I., the Prior of Petreston gave to the Priory of Westacre, in Norfolk, a messuage, and the moiety of a carucate of land, in this parish; in exchange for a messuage, and a moiety of a carucate in Egmere, in Norfolk; which came to the Priory of Walsingham, when that of Petreston became united to it. Saint Mary's college, in Baily End, Thetford, had divers lands and revenues in this, and parishes adjacent; and at its dissolution, these revenues went to the Crown, and so continued until the 29th of Queen Elizabeth, who then granted them to Edward Wymark, Gent., and his heirs; to be held by the rent of 3s. 4d. per annum.

CHARITIES. A piece of ground, on Hannah's Green, not exceeding 20 perches, given, as understood, by the lord of the manor, for the poor, is let at 12s. a year. The sum of 6s. 8d. a year, is received from the churchwardens of Henstead, in respect of Brandon's charity (of which an account is given in that parish). The rent, as above, and the dole, are distributed amongst the poor, at Easter.
