PAKEFIELD is a parish and village, in Mutford and Lothingland incorporation and hundred, Lowestoft county court district, Lothingland rural deanery, archdeaconry of Suffolk, and diocese of Norwich, East Suffolk, a mile and a half south-west from Lowestoft, 12 miles from Yarmouth, 9 from Beceles, and 22 from Saxmundham. The church of All Saints is an old building, with thatched roof, square tower, embattled, which contains 4 bells: nave and aisle, and a porch on the south side. The register dates from 1680. The living is a rectory; the tithes are commuted at 180 per annum, with 14 acres of glebe laud, in the gift of the Church Patronage Society, said held by the Rev. John Sandys, M.A., of Queen's College, Cambridge; the Rev. John Edwin Sandys, B.A., is curate. Henry Reeve, Esq., is lord of the manor, and James Peto, Esq., of Lowestoft, is chief landowner. This being a very dangerous coast, the Suffolk Humane Society have a lifeboat here. There is also a lighthouse on the coast. The sea has made considerable encroachments on this coast.
