    WESTLEY in 1844, is a small parish, 2 miles W. of Bury St. Edmund's, has 144 souls, a few cottages, and 1,234 acres of land, all in one farm, occupied by Mr. Walter Burrell, of Westley Hall. The Marquis of Bristol and Mr. James Lee are lords of the manors, but part of the soil belongs to Mr. W. Burrell, and a few smaller owners. It formerly belonged to Bury Abbey, by gift of Bishop Afric, and was granted in the 31st of Henry VIII. to Sir Thomas Kitson. The old Church (St. Thomasa-Becket) is in ruins, but a new one was erected in 1836, at the cost of 1,400, of patent cement stone, and dedicated to St. Mary. It has a small spire and about 100 sittings. The Marquis of Bristol gave the site and 600. The rectory, valued in K. B. at 9 15s. 5d., is consolidated with that of Fornham-All-Saints. The poor parishioners have 20s. a year from Lady Kitson's charity. (See Hengrave.)
