    Whites 1855 Directory

    HOLBROOK is a large and pleasant village, with several handsome houses, 6 miles S. of Ipswich, near a brook or rivulet from which it has its name, and which falls into the river Stour at Holbrook Bay, near the hamlet of Holton Green, or Lower Holbrook, about a mile S. of the village. Its parish contains 857 inhabitants, and 2203A. 2P. of land, including about 370 acres of woods and plantations. John Berners, Esq., is lord of the manor, but the greater part of the soil belongs to the Harland, Reade, Vernon, Deane, Rodwell, Wilkinson, Gosnall, Western, and a few other families. The lordship was successively held by the families of Holbrook, Daundy, Clench, Thurston, and Staunton. Judge Clenht,who died in 1607, lies buried in the church. The late John Reade:, Esq., of Holbrook House, who died in 1843, had been a chief judge in India, and was sheriff of Suffolk in 1830. The Woodlands, a handsome brick mansion in the Tudor style, built in 1845, is the seat of Wm, Rodwoll, Esq. Holbrook House and Cottage are two other pleasant seats in this parish. The Church (All Saints) is a large ancient fabric, with a tower, supported by massive buttresses. It was re-pewed in 1824, and has 550 sittings, one-third of which are free. The rectory, valued in K.B. at 11 11s. 3d., is in the patronage and incumbency of the Rev. J. B. Wilkinson, B.D., who has 6 acres of glebe, and a yearly rent charge of .400. 10s., awarded in 1838 in lieu of tithes. The Rectory House is a commodious mansion, erected in 1822 by the Rev. Thomas Holmes, the late incumbent. The Wesleyans have a small chapel here. The interest of 30 (arising from 10 given by two benefactors, and 20 received in 1802, on the sale of the workhouse,) is applied in the distribution of coals at a cheap rate to the poor. Two National Schools, for .boys and girls, are supported by the rector and other subscribers; and there are in the village two respectable boarding schools. The POST-OFFICE is at Mr. James Shepherd's; letters via Ipswich,. Those marked * are at Holton Green.
