PAKEFIELD is a parish and village, in Mutford and Lothingland incorporation and hundred, Lowestoft county court district, Lothingland rural deanery, archdeaconry of Suffolk, and diocese of Norwich, East Suffolk, a mile and a half south-west from Lowestoft, 12 miles from Yarmouth, 9 from Beceles, and 22 from Saxmundham. The church of All Saints is an old building, with thatched roof, square tower, embattled, which contains 4 bells: nave and aisle, and a porch on the south side. The register dates from 1680. The living is a rectory; the tithes are commuted at £180 per annum, with 14 acres of glebe laud, in the gift of the Church Patronage Society, said held by the Rev. John Sandys, M.A., of Queen's College, Cambridge; the Rev. John Edwin Sandys, B.A., is curate. Henry Reeve, Esq., is lord of the manor, and James Peto, Esq., of Lowestoft, is chief landowner.
