RENDHAM is a small and picturesque village and parish, in Plomesgate hundred and union, Framlingham and Saxmundham county court district, rural deanery of Orford, archdeaconry of Sudbury, and Norwich diocese, East Suffolk, 80 miles from London, 2 ½ , north-west from Saxmundham, and 5 from Framlingham. The village is situated in the fertile vale of the river Alde. The church of St. Michael, a small building, was restored in 1852: it has a fine carved oak roof: here was discovered an ancient piscina in perfect preservation, and staircase: the pulpit is composed of richly carved oak, and bears the date of 1632: the tower is a Hint building, containing 5 bells, and seemingly of Saxon origin. The registers date from 1550. The living is an impropriate vicarage, value £96 per annum, in the gift of trustees, and held by the Rev. Charles H. Marriott, M.A. The great tithes were sold to the landowners some years since. There is a school built by subscription in 1841, in the Gothic style of architecture; the present number of boys and girls instructed amounts to nearly 100. There is a large endowed Independent chapel near the village, with a spacious burying ground, and the house of the minister is adjacent.
