    BREDFIELD is a parish, in Wilford hundred and rural deanery, Woodbridge union and county court district, archdeaconry of Suffolk, and diocese of Norwich, East Suffolk, 2 miles north from Woodbridge. The church of St. Andrew is a handsome old stone building, with nave, chancel, north porch, and a lofty embattled flint tower, containing 4 bells. The register dates from 1720. The living is a vicarage, annual value £250 with residence, and 27 acres of glebe, in the gift of the Lord Chancellor, and held by the Rev. John Dutton, M.A. Here is a National school for boys and girls, and a Sunday school is held in the same building. Here is also a small Independent chapel. M. H. B. Bramwhite, Esq., of Wareham, Norfolk (who is lord of the manor), and Francis Seabrooke and John Wood, Esqrs., are the chief landowners.
