WANTISDEN in 1874.
WANTISDEN, 7 miles E.N.E. of Woodbridge, and 43 miles N.W. by W. of Orford, is a parish in Plomesgate Union, and Woodbridge County Court district.
It contains 78 inhabitants, a few scattered houses, and about 2126 acres of high land, including more than 350 acres of a large open heath. N. Barnardiston, Esq., is lord of the manor, impropriator, and patron of the living, which is a vicarage, valued at 64, in the incumbency of the Rev. Alfred Naunton Bates, M.A., of Blaxhall Rectory. The Church (St. John), a small stone edifice, consisting of nave, chancel, and tower, with. one bell, was restored in 1864, when the chancel was rebuilt. The cost was defrayed by voluntary contributions, and the nave was newly roofed in 1871. A great part of the parish belongs to Lord Rendlesham and J. G. Sheppard, Esq. The manor was held by Butley Abbey, and was granted at the Dissolution to Lionel Tollemache, . The Hall, built in 1550, is now occupied by a farmer, and near it there were dug up, in 1837, many sculptured stones, some of them representing the heads of prelates. The poor parishioners have 5 a year from Sir M. Stanhope's Charity. (See Sutton).
