    Nowton, a small village, pleasantly situated on an eminence, 2 miles S. by E. of Bury St. Edmund's, has in its parish 159 inhabitants, and 1,320 acres of land, exclusive of a portion of Horsecroft hamlet, which is mostly in Horningsheath parish. H. J. Oakes, Esq., of Nowton Court, (a large handsome mansion), is lord of the manor; but a great part of the soil belongs to the Marquis of Bristol, and a few small owners. The Church (St. Peter) is a neat structure with six bells, and was enlarged and repewed in 1843, at the cost of H. J. Oakes, Esq. Two of its windows are beautifully decorated with stained glass. The rectory, valued in K. B. at 5 19s. 4d., and in 1835, at 314, is in the patronage of the Marquis of Bristol, and incumbency of the Rev. M. Wilkinson, for whom the Rev. H. A.
