    COVEHITHE (formerly called NORTH HALES) is in Blything hundred and union, county court district of Halesworth, East Suffolk, 2 miles east from Wrentham, 5 east from Wangford, and 4 north from Southwold. The church of St. Andrew has a very handsome square tower containing 5 well toned bells: it consists of nave, chancel, and a porch on the south side. The ancient church was destroyed in the year 1643, during the Civil Wars of Charles I.; the present one was erected in the year 1672, and attests the extent of the former edifice, being erected within the nave of the ancient church, and not occupying more than half the area: three of the ancient arches at the east end and the lofty tower still remain, the latter constituting a good landmark for vessels. The living is a discharged vicarage, annexed to the rectory of Benacre; tithes commuted at 28 per annum, in the patronage of Sir Edward Sherlock Gooch, Bart., and held by the Rev. William Gooch. Sir E. S. Gooch, Bart., is lord of the manor and chief landowner. The annual charities amount to 25, a portion of which is expended in buying coals for the poor. Here is a Parochial school for boys and girls, supported by voluntary contributions. On the seashore is a look-out station, with a detachment of four men, under the command of t he chief officer at Kessinirland. The population in 1861 was 192, and the area is 1,553 acres.
    Parish Clerk, Henry Ward.
