CAVENDISH is a parish and village, in Babergh hundred, Sudbury union and county court district, rural deanery and archdeaconry, and diocese of Ely, West Suffolk. It is 3 miles east-by-north from Clare, 6 north-west from Sudbury station, and 74 from London, on the north bank of the river Stour, which is not navigable here. The church of St. Mary is an old stone building, in the Perpendicular style of architecture; it has nave, aisles, chancel, tower and 6 bells, font, clock, and a brass eagle lectern said to have been presented to the church by Queen Elizabeth, one old brass to the Cavendishes, and an old tomb to the Colts. The living is a rectory, annual value £750 14s. 3d., with residence and 70 acres of glebe, in the patronage of the Master and Fellows of Jesus College, Cambridge, and held by the Rev. Robert Godolphin Peter, M.A., of that college. Here is a Grammar school, free for 15 boys, founded by the Rev. Thomas Grey, rector of this parish, in 1696, and endowed with a farm now let for £115, and an eligible house for the master. Here is a fair for cattle on the 11th June. The noble family of Cavendish, of which the Duke of Devonshire is the representative, derive their name from this place, which at an early period was in their possession. Earl Howe is chief landowner. The soil is a mixture of clay and loam, and the crops are wheat, barley, beans, and potatoes. Here was a barrow. The population in 1861 was 1,301; area, 3,354 acres.
BLACKLANDS lies to the north.
