BUXHALL is a parish and small village, 3 ½ miles west-by-south-west from Stowmarket station, and 84 from London, in Stow hundred, union, county court district and rural deanery, Suffolk archdeaconry, Norwich diocese, West Suffolk. The church of St. Mary is a very ancient edifice, built principally of flintstone: it consists of nave, chancel, and massive square tower, supported by buttresses: there are 5 bells, a very ancient stone font, and several monumental slabs to the Copinger and Hill families. The register dates from 1558. The living is a rectory, the tithes commuted at £680, with residence, in the gift of, and held by, the Rev. Copinger Hill, M. A., rural dean. Here is a Parochial school, supported by the rector. The Rev. Copinger Hill, M.A. (who is lord of the manor), R. 0. Fuller, Esq., Capt. Garnham, Mrs. Bennet, and Mr. Thos. Steam are the principal landowners. The soil is of a mixed nature, but in most parts a stiff clay. There are a few small charities. The parish contains 2,120 acres, and had a population in 1861 of 536.
