Stoven Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Stoven or Stoune

The author of "Magna Britannia" makes the demesne of this parish to have been in Robert de Biskele (or Bixley). In 1249, Sir Hugh de Jernegan held of Roger, son of Peter Fitz Osbert, divers lands in Stovene and Bugges, for which he did homage to Roger, son of the said Peter, in the presence of Walter de Redisham, Knt.

The south entrance to this church contains a Norman arch of great beauty, of which Mr. Davy has an etching in his Architectural Antiquities." The present patron and incumbent is the Rev. George Orgill Leman.

CHARITIES. In this parish there is a cottage called the Town House, let in three tenements, to poor persons, at small rents; also two acres of land, let at 2 a year; and a piece of ground, forming a way to a gravel-pit, in the former land; for which the occupiers of an estate, now belonging to the Rev. Samuel Batho, have, for time out of memory, paid a yearly rent or acknowledgement, of 3s. 4d.; which is applied, after repairing the Town House, towards the relief of the parochial poor, with the poor rates. The original acquisition of this property is unknown.
