WHITTON-cum-THURLESTON is a parish and village, in Bosmere hundred, Ipswich union and county court district, rural deanery of Claydon, archdeaconry of Suffolk, and diocese of Ely, East Suffolk, a mile and a half north-east from Bramford station, 72 miles from London, and 2 north from Ipswich, and is principally within the borough of Ipswich. The church of St. Mary was rebuilt and very much enlarged in 1852, and again in 1862, since when, by the influence of the present rector, the remains of Old Thurleston church, which had been long used as a barn, were rescued from sacrilege, and used in adding to this sacred edifice a southern aisle and handsome tower and spire, which, from its position, now forms one of the ecclesiastical ornaments of the county. Thurleston church was dedicated to St. Botolph, and on its site now stand two cottages. The register dates from the reign of Elizabeth, in which a curious entry occurs, under date of Oct. 3, 1678. A subscription having taken place towards the building of the cathedral church of St. Paul, and which subscriptions were paid to Mr. Golby, May 2d, 1679, it is stated that one John Dawson obstinately refused. The living is a rectory, in the gift of the Bishop of Norwich. The great and small tithes of the united places have been commuted for 443, of which 273 belong to the rector, the Rev. William Howorth, M.A., of Caius College, Cambridge, rural dean and honorary canon of Norwich, and 170 to the impropriator. The poor's land is 4 acres,and lets at 6 per year, left by John Reynolds in 1647. The population in 1861 was 565, and the area, including the hamlet of Thurleston, is 1,459 acres.
