    Badwell Ash public houses

    BADWELL-ASH in 1844, or Little Ashfield, is a neat village, 4 miles E. by S. of Ixworth, and its parish contains 458 souls, and 1,860 acres of land. In the 9th of Edward I., it was the lordship of William Creketote, and it was afterwards held, together with Great Ashfield, by the prior and monks of Ixworth. At the dissolution, it was granted to Richard Codington. It is now in two manors-Badwell Ash and Shackerland, belonging to Miss R. Clough; but a great part of the soil is the property of Lord Thurlow, the Rev. T. B. Norgate, and the Mayhew, Baker, Moss, Wilson, Parker, and a few other families. The Church, (St. Mary) is a perpetual curacy, valued at 69. Miss R. Clough is patroness, and the Rev. Thomas Burroughs Norgate, incumbent. The Town Estate has been vested from a nearly period, in trust,for the reparation of the church and the relief of the poor, at the discretion of the trustees and the churchwardens. It consists of the Town House, occupied rent free, by poor families, and about 11a. of land, let for 12 3s. 6d. a year, which is wholly applied in the service of the church. For a distribution of bread at the church, the poor have a yearly rent charge of 24s., left by Thomas Blackerby, in the 13th of Charles 2nd., out of the tithes of Stow-upland. The late Thomas Richer, Esq., of this parish, left 400 to the Suffolk General Hospital, in 1843.
