    MARLESFORD is a parish and village, in Plomesgate union, Woodbridge county court district, Loes hundred and rural deanery, archdeaconry of Suffolk, and diocese of Norwich, East Suffolk, on the river Ore, 5 miles south-west from Saxmundham, and 2 north-east from Wickham Market. The church of St. Andrew, which stands about a quarter of a mile on the north-west side of the village, is a low Saxon building, consisting of nave and aisle, and has a monument to the memory of the Alston family, bearing date 1641, and another to the memory of Lemuel Shuldham, son of William Shuldham, Esq., of Marlesford, late cornet of the Scots Greys, who fell at Waterloo on the 18th June, 1815: the tower is built of flint, supported by strong buttresses, and contains 4 bells. The living is a rectory, commuted tithe rent-charge 380 per annum, with 30 acres of glebe, and a Rectory-house in the vicinity of the church, in the gift of A. Arcedeckne, Esq., of Glevering Hall, and held by the Rev. George Henry Porter, M.A. The chief landowners are Miss Shuldham, who resides at the Hall, Lieut.-Col. Frederic William Schreiber, who holds the manor, the Earl of Guilford, A. Arcedeckne, Esq., and a few smaller owners. The only charities are that of 6 per annum from Sir Walter Devereux for the poor, payable out of an estate belonging to the Shuldham family; the interest of 180 per annum left by Thomas Kersey for the poor also; and 1s. weekly, from the late John Smith, for giving 12 small loaves away at the church on Sundays. Here are ozier beds and sandpits. The Framlingham branch of the East Suffolk Railway passes through the parish. The population in 1861 was 412, and the area 1,277 acres, of which 10 acres are unenclosed common.
