    Whites 1855 Directory of Suffolk.
    Belstead, a small village four miles SW of Ipswich, has in its parish 308 souls and 1020 acres of land. Lady Harland is lady of the manor and owner of a great part of the soil; and the rest belongs to Robert Burrell esq, and a few smaller owners.
    The Goldinghams sold the manor, in 1560, to Mr Blosse, a rich clothier of Ipswich; and the heiress of his family sold it, in the early part of last century, to the Harlands. The Church (St Mary) is a neat structure, with one side aisle, and a tower on the south side. It contains a handsome monument in memory of the Blosse family.
    The rectory, valued in KB at $7 6s, and now at 370, is in the patronage and incumbency of the Rev E I Lockwood, MA, who has a handsome new rectory house, and 56 A 1R 36P of glebe.
    In 1794, Charles Bedingfield of this parish, left 80 for the poor, and it was laid out in 1754, with 15 given by Mary King, in the purchase of a double cottage and four and a half acres of land, now let for 20 per annum, which is distributed among the poor at Christmas. In 1765, Mary King left the residue of her personal estate to the successive rectors of Belstead, for the relief of poor parishioners. The sum of 200 was derived from this bequest, but 50 was lost by the insolvency of a bank at Ipswich; and the remaining 150 is vested at three and three quarters per cent interest.
