CHELLESWORTH is a parish and small village, in Cosford hundred and union, Hadleigh county court district, Sudbury rural deanery and archdeaconry, and diocese of Ely, West Suffolk, 5 miles from Sudbury, 6 from Hadleigh station, and 15 from Bury and Ipswich. The church of All Saints is a handsome structure of the 15th century: it has aisles, chancel, north and south porches, and tower, containing 1 bell: the interior has been restored and beautified: in 1849 a very curious fresco was discovered over the arch separating the nave from the chancel, and renovated: it represents the Day of Judgment, and is a facsimile of the painting in St. Michael's church, Coventry. The register commences in 1559. The living is a rectory, annual value 266, with residence, in the gift of the Lord Chancellor, and held by the Rev. Thomas P. Platten, M . A. . of Emmanuel College, Cambridge. The land is chiefly arable, and very fertile. Marton Robert Pocklington, Esq., J.P., is lord of the manor. His seat, The Hall, is delightfully situated on the banks of the river Brett, contiguous to the village. The annual value of the charities of the parish is 31 10s. Here are chalk pits. In the village is a school for boys and girls. The population of the parish in 1861 was 273, and the area 861a. 3r. lp.
