    Post Office Directory of 1865.

    LIVERMERE-PARVA parish in 1844, is 4 miles W. by N. of Ixworth, and 5 1/2 miles N. by E. of Bury St. Edmund's, contains 172 souls, one farm house, 24 cottages, and 1,433 acres of land, a large portion of which is in Livermere Park, which comprises about 550 acres, and is partly in Great Livermere. The handsome mansion in this park is a sporting seat of Sir William F. F. Middleton, Bart., the lord of the manor, and owner of both parishes. It was built by Mr, Coke, who left it to the second Duke of Grafton, who resided here several years. In the latter part of last century, it was the property of Baptist Lee, Esq., who obtained a prize of 30,000 in the state lottery, and greatly improved the mansion and park, as also did his son, the late Nathaniel Lee Acton, Esq. The Church (St. Peter) is a small neat structure in the park. The benefice is a rectory, valued in K.B. at 6 2s. l1d., and consolidated with that of Great Livermere. The sum of 10, left to the poor of Little Livermere, by William Firmage, in 1559, was laid out in 1622, in the purchase of 1a. 2r. 36p. of land at Chevington, now let for 20s. a year, which is distributed in clothing. The principal inhabitants are Thomas Meadows Rodwell,farmer; and John Cutting, park-keeper.
