Tattingstone Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Tattingstone or Tadingston

In the 9th of Edward I., this was the lordship and estate of John de Holbrooke, and afterwards of John, Earl of Oxford; who was attainted by the first parliament of King Edward IV., and his estate became forfeited to the crown. That monarch in the 11th year of his reign (1471), granted to his brother Richard, Duke of York and Gloucester, afterwards King Richard III., all the manors and lordships which were held by Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick; among others were the manors of Tattingstone, Cockfield, Aldham, Preston, Lavenham, and Mendham, in Suffolk; and at the same time made him Chancellor for life.

The family of Aylmer appears formerly to have had some interest here. Olive, daughter of Robert Aylmer, of this parish, Esq., married Thomas Brampton, of Brampton, in Norfolk, who died about 1500.1

Tattingstone Place, late in the Beaumont and White families, afterwards the property of Thomas Western, Esq., son of the late Rear Admiral Thomas Western, who died in 1815, is now the residence of Sir George Crewe, Bart.

CHARITIES. A house near the church, consisting of four tenements, is appropriated to the use of, and occupied by, four poor families; and a cottage, in two tenements, with an acre of land adjoining, are appropriated for, and used, one of the tenements and the land, by the parish clerk, and the other, by the sexton.

1. Mr. Blomefield states, that John Croftes, D.D., Dean of Norwich, was a native of Tattingstone; which is probably, incorrect, as we have not met with a statement tending to show that any of that family held property in this parish or its vicinity.
