Kentford Public Houses

KENTFORD in 1844, is a small village and parish, on the Bury road, 4 1/2 miles E. of Newmarket, contains 152 souls, and about 800 acres of fertile land, belonging to Mr. J. Wellsman, Mr. Samuel Clark Jonas, and a few smaller owners; but W. F. G. Farmer, Esq., is lord of the manor. The Church (St. Mary) is a small fabric, with a tower and three bells. The rectory, valued in K.B. at 7 3s. 4d., is consolidated with the vicarage of Gazeley. The tithes here were commuted, in 1843, for a yearly modus of 180. On the enclosure of the open fields, &c, in this parish, under an act passed in 1826, several parcels of old poor's land were exchanged for three allotments in Worlington Field, containing together 17a. 1r. 17p. They are let by the rector and churchwardens, who distribute the rents yearly among the deserving poor of the parish.
