SHOTTISHAM is a parish and village, in Wilford hundred and rural deanery, Woodbridge union and county court district, archdeaconry of Suffolk, and diocese of Norwich, East Suffolk, 6 miles south-east from Woodbridge. The church of St. Margaret, a stone building, was thoroughly repaired about 1845: it has a nave, chancel, south porch, and tower with 1 bell. The living is a rectory, value £240, with residence, and about 20 acres of glebe, in the gift of the Rev. William Darby and Rev. Martin Baily Darby, and held by the Rev. Edward Francis, M.A., of St. John's College, Cambridge. There are charities of the annual value of £2, payable on New Year's Day. There is a bequest, derivable from certain lands in the parish, for the repairs of the church, to the amount of £5 annually, made by some person whose name is unknown. Here is a national school for boys and girls.
