    Whites 1855 Directory

    CAPEL ST. MARY, a pleasant village in the vale of a smalt rivulet, 7 miles S.W. of Ipswich, and 5 miles S.E. of Hadleigh, has in its parish 649 inhabitants, and 1911 acres of fertile land, including 60A. of wood, 34A. of roads, and the hamlet of Cross Green, on the turnpike, nearly a mile S. of the village. It is in three manors, viz., Boynton Hall, belonging to Queen's College, Cambridge ; and Churchford Hall, and Vaux-and-Jermyn's, of which J. Ansell, Esq., is lord. The Rowley, Goodchild, Godfrey, Brook, and other families own part of the soil, which is mostly freehold. The Church (St. Mary) is a neat structure, with a tower containing five bells, and formerly surmounted by a spire, which was taken down in 1818. The rectory, valued in K.B. at 13. 8s. 4d., has had that of Little Wenham annexed to it since 1787, and was valued in 1835 at 682. The glebe is 22A., and the tithes of Capel were commuted in 1888 for a yearly Rent charge of 528. The Rev. Jph. Tweed, M.A., is patron and incumbent, and has a good Rectory House, with pleasant grounds. Here is a small Wesleyan Chapel; and about a mile north of the village is Capel Railway Station, on the Hadleigh Branch of the Eastern Union line. The POST OFFICE is at J. Hardy's; letters via Ipswich.
