    Post Office Directory of 1865.

    SAPISTON in 1844, is a small scattered village, in the vale of the southern Thet, 3 miles N. by W. of Ixworth, has in its parish 255 souls, and 1,155 acres of fertile land, all the property and manor of the Duke of Grafton. At the Domesday Survey, it was the lordship of Gilbert de Bland, who gave it to the priory which he founded at Ixworth. After the Dissolution, it was granted to Richard and Elizabeth Codington. Robert Bloomfield, the poet, commenced his career here as a farmer's boy. The Church (St. Andrew) is an ancient thatched fabric. The Duke of Grafton is impropriator of the tithes, and patron of the perpetual curacy, which is valued at 78, and enjoyed by the Rev. G. S. Barrow. The Duke built a National School here, in 1841, and it is now attended by about 50 poor children.
