UBBESTON in 1844, is near one of the sources of the river Blythe, 6 1/2 miles S.W. of Halesworth, and N.N.E. of Framlingham, is a village and parish containing 243 inhabitants, and 1207a. 1r. 14p. of land. Lord Huntingfield is lord of the manor, but part of the soil belongs to the Rev. R. H. Frere, Mr. Clutterbuck, and several smaller owners. The manor was held by St. Neots priory, and was granted at the dissolution to John Pope, Esq. It was for a long period the seat and property of the Stone, whose heiress carried it in marriage, in the 17th century, to the ancient family of Kemp, who for some time occupied the Hall, now a farm house. The Church (St. Peter) is a discharged vicarage, valued K.B. at 6. 13s. 4d., but endowed with the rectorial tithes by Mrs. Mary Sone, in 1685. The glebe is nearly 7 acres., and the tithes have been commuted for a yearly modus of 316. 16s. The Rev. E. Holland is patron, and the Rev. Samuel Badeley, L.L.B., of Yoxford, is the incumbent. The Poor's Estate consists of two cottages, a garden, and a blacksmith's shop, let for 12. 3s. a year, which is sometimes improperly expended in the service of the church, instead of being distributed among the poor parishioners.
