The History of Suffolk site

Search the London & UK Pub History site and Street directory by historical Pub name or street address. The Pub history site is a major historical street directory of London and the Southern area of the UK, listing many Pubs (either closed or open); and street name changes between about 1840 and about 1940.
Please Contact: Kevan with any updates and additions to the site.

WISSETT is a Tillage and parish, in Blything hundred and union, Halesworth county court district, rural deanery of Dunwich, archdeaconry of Suffolk, and diocese of Norwich, East Suffolk, 2 miles north-west from Halesworth. The church of St. Andrew is an old building, with Norman tower, and a remarkably fine arch, formerly one of the entrances; there is also another arch worthy of notice: the interior has been repaired, with pews and vestry: the stained glass windows, with emblems of the Apostles, were the gift of the late Sir W. E. C. Hartopp, Bart.; the cost was 100. The parish register dates from the year 1553. The living is a vicarage, annual value 115, with residence, in the gift of Sir John Hartopp, Bart.; lord of the manor, and held by the Rev. Robert Kemp, who is also incumbent of Walpole. Here is a Free school, and a neat Independent chapel, built in 1841. The population in 1861 was 427; the area is 2,243a. Or. 35p. The gross value is 3,912 5s., and the rateable value 3,334.
