    KIRTON (or KIRKTON) is a small village and parish, near the mouth of the Deben, 7 miles south from Woodbridge, in Colneis hundred and rural deanery, Woodbridge union and county court district. Suffolk archdeaconry, and diocese of Norwich, East Suffolk. The church of St. Mary is a rubble building, in the Early English style of architecture, with stone tower, and a new aisle for the free use of the poor: the late rector discovered a very ancient piscina, which is in good preservation. The living is a rectory, net value £500 yearly, with residence, and 5 acres of glebe land, in the gift of the Lord Chancellor, and held by the Rev. George Philip Bartlett, M.A. There is a Wesleyan chapel. The charitable bequest consists of 8 ½ acres of land, called the Poor's land, now let for £12 10s., which sum is distributed in coals at a cheap rate among the poor. A former rector here was the father of Clara Reeve, authoress of ' The Old English Baron." The soil is light; the subsoil,
    crag and white sand. The principal crops are wheat and barley. The owners of the land are the Ipswich Charity Trustees and various small proprietors. There are two manors: the Duke of Hamilton is lord of one, and Miss Cartwright, of Bury St. Edmund's, is lady of the other. The population in 1801 was 541, and the area is 1,898 acres.
