Ilketshall Public Houses

ILKETSHALL ST. JOHN in 1844, 2 miles S. by E. of Bungay, is the smallest parish among the four Ilketshalls, having only 71 souls, and 743 acres of land, five scattered farm houses, and three cottages. John Day, Esq., is lord of the manor, but part of the soil belongs to the Rev. R. Day, Mr. John Hall, and two smaller owners. The Church (St. John) is a small stuccoed edifice, covered with blue slate, and standing on a bold eminence. The rectory, valued in K.B. at 8. 13s. 4d., and in 1835 at 311, is in the gift of the Crown, and incumbency of the Rev. Charles James Hutton, A.B., who has a pleasant residence, and about 60a. of glebe. The tithes have been commuted for a yearly rent of 230, besides which the rector has about 50 a year from the tithes
of the other three Ilketshalls. The Ham, a neat mansion of white brick, belongs to the Rev. R. Day, but is occupied by Richard Day French, Esq. The Farmers are John Chilvers, Manor House; George Dixon, and John Hall.
