RISBY is a parish and village, in the union, hundred, and rural deanery of Thingoe, county court district of Bury St. Edmund's, archdeaconry of Sudbury, diocese of Ely, West Suffolk, about 4 miles west-by-north from Bury St. Edmund's, near the high road from the latter place to Newmarket, and one mile north from the Saxham station. The church of St. Giles, an ancient edifice, has nave, chancel, and round tower with 3 bells: it was repewed in 1842: a handsome carved screen divides the nave from the chancel: there are tablets to the Danby, Wastell, and Spark families. The late Baron Alderson was buried here in 1857. The living is a rectory, united with Fornham St. Genevieve, joint annual value £750, with residence, and 20 acres of glebe land, in the gift of the Lord Chancellor, and held by the Rev. Thos. Edward Abraham, M.A., of Balliol College, Oxford, appointed in 1863. There is a Sunday school in the village. Sir Thos. Rokewood Gage, Bart., is lord of the manor; the Messrs.
