    THORINGTON in 1844, is a straggling village, 4 miles S.E. of Halesworth, has in its parish 157 souls, and 1411 acres of land, exclusive of roads and a few acres of common. Lieutenant Col. Henry Bence Bence, of Thorington Ham., owns nearly all the parish, and is lord of the manor, which is called Thorington Wimples, and was anciently the demesne of Walter de Norwich. It afterwards passed to the Uffords and Cokes, but has been long held by the Pence family, one of whom, about a century ago, fixed his seat at the Hall, which was rebuilt in 1820, at the cost of about 15,000; and stands in a pleasant park of nearly 200 acres, near the Beccles road, 6 1/2 miles N.N.E. of Saxmundham. The Church (St. Peter) is an ancient edifice with a round tower, and was repaired and repewed in 1836, at the cost of 200.
