Cretingham in Whites 1844 Directory

CRETINGHAM, nearly 5 miles W.S.W. of Framlingham, and E.S.E. of Debenham, is a village and parish, containing 411 souls, and 1639 acres of land, lying in three manors.
Thos Chenery Esq, is lord of the manor of St. Peter, and improprietor of the rectorial tithes, which were commuted in 1841, for �321 per annum. The manor of Kettlebars, in Cretingham, was anciently held by a family of its own name, and afterwards by the Mulso and Cornwallis families. The parish is partly free and partly copyhold; and the other principal proprietors are Lord Rendlesham, W Bigsby Esq, Thomas Walker Esq, N Barthropp Esq (who has a handsome mansion, erected about five years ago) and Messrs C Pulham, J peck and H Lockwood.
The church (St Andrew) has a lofty tower and five bells, and was the appropriation of St Peter's Priory, in Ipswich. The vicarage, valued in K.B. at �9 10s 10d, and in 1835
at �142, has 22A. of glebe, and a yearly modus of �173, awarded in 1841 in lieu of small tithes. The patronage is in the Crown, and the Rev. R. B. Exton is the incumbent. The Town Lands, etc., were principally settled or given in or about the third of Elizabeth, by Arthur Penning and Wm. Berwick, for keeping the church in good repair, and for the general benefit of the parishioners. They were conveyed to ten new trustees, in 1826, and comprise 7 A. 26p. of land, let for �19. 5s. per annum; the Bell Inn, let for �13; a cottage and blacksmith's shop, let for �10 ; a cottage, built at the expense of the parish, about 1826, let for �6. 10s., and three cottages occupied by poor persons, at small rents. In 1819, the Rev. Joseph Jeaffreson left 2A. of land, in augmentation of the vicarial glebe, but subject to a yearly rent charge of 40s. for the poor.
