REDISHAM, (GREAT) a small village, 4 1/2 miles S. by W. of Beccles, and 6 miles S.E. of Bungay, has in its parish 165 souls, and 733a. 2b. 21p. of land, having a strong loamy soil, and rising in bold undulations. John Garden, Esq., is lord of the manor, but a great part of the soil belongs to the Earl of Gosford, and several smaller owners. The copyholds are subject to arbitrary fines. The Church (St. Peter) is a small fabric with a wooden belfry, and was appropriated to Butley Priory. The Earl of Gosford is now impropriator and patron, and receives a yearly modus of 100 in lieu of tithes, from the lands which do not belong to him. The perpetual curacy, valued in 1835 at 50, is now enjoyed by the Rev. Richard Aldous Arnold. The parish has 9 6s. 8d. yearly for the support of a Sunday school, from Leman's charity, as noticed with Cratfield.
