    SOUTHELMHAM ST. JAMES in 1844, is a straggling village, 6 miles N.W. by W. of Halesworth, and 7 miles S. by W. of Bungay, has in its parish 289 souls, and 1301A. 3r. 10p. of land, part of which, on the south side of the parish, is called St. James's Park, and was anciently a demesne of the Bishops of Norwich, who occasionally resided here in the 12th and 13th centuries, as already noticed. William. Adair, Esq., is lord of the manor, but part of the soil belongs to N. Micklethwaite, Esq., the Rev. John Lewis, and a few smaller owners. The Church is a small structure, with a tower and four bells, and the benefice is a discharged rectory, valued in K.B. at 8, and now having a yearly modus of 384. 10s., in lieu of tithes. Wm. Adair, Esq., is patron, and the Rev. Courtenay Boyle Bruce, B.A., incumbent. The Town Estate, consisting of a house, outbuildings, and 15a. of land, let for 20 per annum, was left in 1679 by Catherine Skaiffe, for the repairs of the church and superstitious uses ; but after the Reformation, it was vested in trust to apply the rents so far as necessary in repairing the church, and to pay one half of the overplus towards easing the poor rates, and apply the other half in such charitable uses as the trustees should think fit. The Town House, formerly the poorhouse is let on lease for 2. 10s. a year, which is applied with the rent of the Town Estate.
