ASHFIELD with the Hamlet of THORPE.
ASHFIELD is a parish and scattered village, 12 miles north from Ipswich, and 3 east from Debenham, in Thredling hundred, Bosmere and Claydon union, Framlingham and Saxmundham county court district, Claydon rural deanery, Suffolk archdeaconry, and Norwich diocese, East Suffolk. The church, after being in ruins for more than a century, was rebuilt with brick in 1853 by Lord Henniker, at a cost of 2,000. The living is a perpetual curacy, annual value 46, in the gift of Lord Henniker, M.P.,and held by the Rev. George Blake Everett. Thorpe Chapel was rebuilt in 1739, and was used as the parish church till 1853 : it has since been pulled down, the tower only remaining. The churchyard at Ashfield is used in conjunction with that at Thorpe for burial purposes. Lord Henniker, M.P., is lord of the manor and impropriator of the tithes, which are commuted at 465 per annum. Sand is dug here. The population in 1801 was 306, and the area is 1,565 acres.
