SHOTLEY is a scattered village, at the termination of the peninsula formed by the estuaries of the Orwell and Stour, opposite Harwich, in Samford hundred, union, and rural deanery, Ipswich county court district, archdeaconry of Suffolk, and diocese of Norwich, East Suffolk, 10 miles south-east from Ipswich, and about 2 from Harwich, across from the "Bristol Arms," or Shotley Gate, from whence ferry boats ply to and from Harwich. A strong fortification, with barracks, is now in course of erection here, mounting 12 heavy Armstrong guns, which command the entrance of the harbour. The church of St. Mary is a large structure, situate on an eminence. The living is a rectory, with about 54 acres of glebe, and £585 in lieu of tithes, in the gift of the Marquis of Bristol, and held by the Rev. George Forster Simpson, B.A., of St. Edmund Hall, Oxford. The Marquis of Bristol is lord of the manor of Overhall-with-Netherhall. The poor have the proceeds of two orchards and two acres of land, left by Andrew Barfoot in 1501, now let for £6 6s. per annum. There is a National school for the parish children: the site, containing half an acre of land, and a donation of £50 towards its erection were given by the Marquis of Bristol. There is considerable trade carried on in stone, which is used in the manufacture of Roman cement. The population in 1861 was 582, and the area is 2,051 acres.
