    SWEFLING in 1874, is a small scattered village, in the vale of the river Aide, 3 miles W. by N. of Saxmundham, and 4 miles E. of Framlingham, in Plomesgate Union, and Framlingham and Saxmundham County Court district. Its parish is of the rateable value of 2,046. 2s. 6d., and contains 270 inhabitants, and 1120 acres of land, lying in seven copyhold manors. but chiefly in the manor of Dernford Hall, now a farm house, formerly belonging to Leigh priory, in Essex. and afterwards to the Cavendish family. The Duke of Hamilton, Miss Shuldham, Captain Alfred Bloomfield, and F. A. MacDougal, Esq. own nearly all the parish. The Church (St. Mary), consisting of nave, chancel, and a fine south porch of flint, is an ancient structure, with a tower and five bells. The living is a rectory, valued in K.B. at 2. 2s. 8d., and in 1835 at 262; but the tithes were commuted in 1840 for 302. 10s. per annum. The Rev. Russell Skinner, M.A., is the patron and rector, and has 9 1/2 acres of glebe, and a neat residence, built in 1831 by the Rev. W. Collett, the late incumbent. The Feoflees' Estate comprises two cottages and 6 acres of land, let for 17 a year; and was given by Ezra Crisp, in 1699, for the reparation of the church and other public uses. In 1568, Henry Leggett left, for distribution among the poor of Swelling, a yearly rent-charge of 40s. out of Limekiln Close. The sum of 46, received as arrears of this rentcharge, was laid out in 1784, in building a coal shed for the use of the parish.
