    BRADFIELD ST. CLARE is a parish, in Thedwestry hundred and rural deanery, Thingoe union, county court district of Bury St. Edmund's, Sudbury archdeaconry, and diocese of Ely, West Suffolk, 5 miles south from Thurston station, 94 ½ from London, and 5 south-cast-by-south from Bury St. Edmund's. The church of St. Clare has a tower and 3 bells, nave, chancel, porch, and register chest, with documents dating from the middle of the sixteenth century. The living is a rectory, having a yearly tithe commutation rent-charge of £280, awarded in 1843 in lieu of tithes, in the patronage of, and held by, the Rev. Stuteville Isaacson, M. A., of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge; the Rev. George Steers Faught is the curate. The principal landowners are the trustees of the late Rev. Robert Davers, who also hold the manorial rights, but there are a few smaller owners. The soil is chiefly clay and loam; subsoil, the same: the crops are wheat, oats, barley, beans, and green crops. The Hall, occupied by Mr. Robert Offord, farmer, is an ancient moated house, formerly a retreat of the monks of Bury. The population in 1841 was 240; in 1851, 214; and in 1861 it was 233: the area is 1,428 acres, of fertile land.
    ELM GREEN is half a mile south-east.
