    Public houses in Sotterley

    SOTTERLEY parish, 4 1/2 miles S.S.E. of Beccles, and 7 miles N.E. of Halesworth, has its houses mostly scattered round the margin of an extensive park, and contains 223 souls, and 1593a. 3r. 5p. of land. The Earl of Gosford and T. C. Scott, Esq., each own a farm here, and all the rest belongs, with the manor, to Frederick Barne, Esq., of Sotterley Hall, a large and handsome mansion, in a richly wooded and finely undulated Park, comprising 489a. 1R. It has recently been embellished with an elegant portico of the Corinthian order, and was formerly the seat of the Playters, who held the manor as early as the reign of Edward II., and one of whom was created a baronet in 1623, but the title is now extinct. The Church (St. Margaret) stands in the park, near the hall, embowered in trees. It has a lofty embattled tower, and contains several ancient monuments of the Playter family. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in K.B. at 10,and now having a good residence, about 34 acres of glebe, and a yearly modus of 290. 18s. 11d., awarded in 1840 in lieu of tithes. Frederick Barne, Esq., is patron, and the Rev. G. F. Barlow, M.A., incumbent. In 1616, Thomas Jollye left a yearly rent-charge of .6, out of the manor of Benacre, for the poor of Sotterley, who have also an allotment of 5a., awarded at the enclosure, and now let for 6. 10s. a year. Two tenements, called the Town House, are occupied rent free by poor families. The School was built in 1840, at the expense of the rector.
