    Wattisfield Public Houses

    WATTISFIELD in 1844, is a pleasant village on the Bury road, 3 miles W.S.W. of Botesdale, and 6 miles N.E. by E. of Ixworth, has in its parish 601 souls, and about 1,600a. of fertile land, under which is a bed of fine clay, of which, excellent bricks, tiles, and brown earthenware are manufactured. It was one of the lordships belonging to the Abbot of Bury, and in Kirby's time was held by the Thompson and Moody families. J. B. Powell, Esq., is now lord of the manor, but a great part of the soil belongs to George Mallows,Esq.(who has a handsome seat here,) and several smaller owners. The Church (St. Margaret) is a neat fabric with a tower and five bells; and the benefice is a discharged rectory, valued in K.B. at 8 11s. 8d., and in 1835, at 336. Mrs. Morgan is patroness, and her husband, the Rev. R. Morgan, is the incumbent, but does not reside here. In the village is an Independent Chapel, built in 1678, by a congregation which was formed at Market Weston, in 1654. It has a small endowment, and seat room for 700 hearers. Here is also a small Wesleyan Chapel, built in 1835. The Town Estate has been vested in trust, from a very remote period, for the general benefit of the parish, and comprises
    a house and one rood of land, occupied rent free, by poor persons, and 54a. Ir. 2p. of land, let for 71 17s. per annum; but of this 2a. 1r. 36p is "Poor's Land," purchased in 1647, with 30 given by Robert Mallows and Nicholas Look The rents are applied in the first instance, in defraying the church wardens' expenses, and the salaries of the parish clerk and constable; and the surplus is laid out in coals, which are sold at reduced prices, to the poor parishioners. In the 4th of Charles 1st., Sir Nicholas Bacon left 33 6s. 8d. to be laid out in lands, and the rents thereof to be applied in repairing Wattisfield Causeway, which now forms part of the turnpike road. The 4a. of land, purchased with this legacy, is vested with the surveyors of the highways, and the rent is carried to their accounts.
