BRANDESTON is a large and well built village, in Loes hundred, Plomesgate union, Framlingham and Saxmundham county court district, rural deanery of Loose, archdeaconry of Suffolk, and diocese of Norwich, East Suffolk, situate on the river Deben, 12 miles north-east from Ipswich, 10 north from Woodbridge, 5 from Wickham Market, and 6 south-by-east from Debenham. The church of All Saints is a Gothic building, with a square tower, nave, and chancel, and has recently been restored by Mr. Austin. The living is a vicarage, annual value £130, with modern residence, in the gift of Charles Austin, Esq., J.P., and held by the Rev Henry Valentine Pickering, B.A. There is a chapel belonging to the Independents, capable of accommodating 400 persons, built in 1838.
