    Earl Soham Public Houses

    EARL SOHAM, a large and well-built village, pleasantly situated at the junction of two vales, 3½ miles W. of Framlingham, and 4 miles E. of Debenham, is distinguished for its extensive lamb and stock fair, held July 23rd and 24th, and has in its parish 741 inhabitants, and 1944A. 2R. 38P. of fertile, loamy land. It is called Earl Soham from its being anciently held by the Earls of Norfolk. In the 20th of Edward I., Roger Bigod had a grant for a market and a fair here, but the former has long been obsolete. J. Crabtree, Esq., solicitor, of Halesworth, has lately purchased the manor, which is partly copyhold, subject to arbitrary fines ; but the principal landowners are Lord Henniker, Sir T. G. Cullum, and the Goodwin, Henchman, Harsant, Raw, Cavell, Kent, Scotchmer, and a few other families. Soham Lodge, the property of Sir T G Cullum, and now residence of J Clubbs Esq, is an old irregular brick building, surrounded with a brick wall and large moat.
    It was formerly the seat of the Cornwallis family, one of whom left it to the Corderoys, from whom it passed through various proprietors to the Aytons and Cullnms. The Church (St. Mary) is a neat but ancient fabric, and the living is a rectory, valued in K.B. a £10, and in 1835, at £515. The Rev. J. H. Groóme, M.A., is patron and incumbent, and has a neat residence and 35A. 3R. 16P. of glebe. The tithes have recently been commuted for a yearly modus of £484. 15s. The Wesleyans and Baptists have each a chapel here. The Charity Land, which has been vested in trust from an early period, for the relief of the poor parishioners, is copyhold, and comprises 46A, lying in various parts of the parish, and let at rents amounting to
    £62. 4s. a year. On one parcel of the estate are five tenements, let for £9. 10s. a year. The rents are applied in occasional relief, and in regular distributions of money, clothing, groceries, etc. In 1677, Robert Wyard left a yearly rent-charge out of his lands in Worlingworth, to be paid to this parish as follows, viz., on the 25th of February and on the 23rd of April, 10s. for a sermon, 25s. for the poor, 5s. for ringing
    the bell, and 10s. for a dinner for the churchwardens, etc. on each of these days. The poor have also £8. 6s. 7d. yearly from Kersey's Charity, (see Charsfield,) and £6. 16s. from £195 three and a half per cent, annuities, bequeathed by the Rev. Mr. Capper, in 1818, for a weekly distribution of bread.
