HARGRAVE is a scattered village and parish, in Thingoe hundred and union, Bury St. Edmund's county court district, Clare rural deanery, Sudbury archdeaconry, diocese of Elv, West Suffolk, 6 miles south-west from Bury St. Edmunds station. The church has a tower and 3 bells, a nave and chancel, and porch. The register dates from the middle of the sixteenth century. The living is a rectory, valued in 1835 at 283, with 27 acres of glebe land, in the gift of the Rev. John White, and held by the Rev. John White Westliorpe. The Marquis of Bristol is lord of the manor, which was held by Bury Abbey, afterwards by the Kitsons and Gages. The poor have 20 a year from Dayne's Charity, with several other small donations.
