    CHEDBURGH is a pleasant village and parish, in Risbridge hundred, Thingoe union, Bury St. Edmund's county court district, Clare rural deanery, Sudbury archdeaconry, diocese of Ely, West Suffolk, 6 miles south-west from Bury St. Edmund's, and 10 north-north-east from Clare. The church of All Saints is a neat brick and stone building, in the Decorated style of architecture, with a tower and spire, which was rebuilt in 1842: it has nave, chancel, porch, and contains 140 sittings, 80 of which are free. The register dates from 1538. The living is a discharged rectory, now having 48 acres of glebe, with residence, and a yearly rent charge of 150, awarded in 1839, in the gift of the Marquis of Bristol, and held by the Rev. Henry Keyworth Creed. B.A., of Christ's College, Cambridge. There is an endowed school for boys and girls, and a Sunday school. The soil is clay; crops, wheat, oats, beans, and barley. Here are several charities; 4 a year from Sir Robert Drurys, a poor widow of Chedburgh and Rede alternately being entitled to be placed in almshouses founded by him at Hawstead: donations by Henry and Oliver Sparrow, in the reign of James I., were laid out in the purchase of lands at Langham, the proceeds of which are divided between the rector and the poor, and a yearly rent-charge of 10s., out of a mill at Stanstead, left by Anthony Sparrow, is also distributed among the poor. In 1815 the Hon. William Hervey left 180 per annum to nine annuitants of 20 each, and after their decease to the Marquis of Bristol, in trust for any object of charity he might think proper: most of the annuitants being dead, about 30 a year is now paid towards the support of the school, which was built by the Marquis. The population in 1861 was 325; area, 566 acres.
