BRAMFORD is a parish, considerable village, and railway station, on the Eastern Union Railway and navigable river Gipping, 70 ¾ mile's from London, 2 ½ northwest from Ipswich, in Bosmere and Claydon hundred and union, Ipswich county court district, rural deanery of Bosmere, archdeaconry of Suffolk, and diocese of Norwich, East Suffolk. The church of St. Stephen, which is in the course of entire restoration, is a neat building, in the Early English and Decorated styles of architecture, with square tower and leaden spire. The living is a vicarage, with the chapelry of Borstal, annexed, joint annual value £79,in the gift of the Dean and Chapter of Canterbury, and held by Rev. Wm. John Picket Bedford, M.A., of St. John's College, Cambridge. There is also a small Independent chapel. The Hall, formerly the seat of the Acton family, belongs to Rear Admiral Sir G. N. Broke-Middleton, Bart., C.B., but is now vacant: it is a handsome brick-built mansion in the modern style, and with a good prospect. W.Acton,in 1703,bequeathed to the poor of Bramford £200 for the purchase of land, now consisting of a cottage and 14 acres of land, and let for £20 per annum, for a quarterly distribution of bread and meat. Francis Broke left a yearly modus of £5 for the benefit of the poor. The almshouses consist of three tenements, occupied by six widows. The annual value of assessed property was £3,881 15s. in 1846. Here is a common of 10 acres, and 10 acres in cottage gardens. Rear-Admiral Sir George V. Broke Middleton, Bart., C.B., is lord of the manor and owner of a large portion of the soil. George Thomas, Esq., is lord of the manor of Lovetofts, in which stands The Hall, on the site of the ancient seat of the Tibetots. Here is a paper mill, which employs part of the population. There is a police station of the East Suffolk constabulary. Here are chalk pits, and extensive manure and cement works. The soil is light; subsoil, sand, and in places chalk. In 1861 the population was 1,019; area, 3,2226 acres.
