S a pRrish, in the hundred of Babergh— the villaue
large and populous, is 59 miles n.e. by n. from London,
22 w, from Ipswich, 13§ s. from Bury Saint Edmunds,
and 3 N. by w. from Sudbury — the last-named a
station on a branch communicating with the Eastern
Counties railway at the Mark's Tey Junction, The
village, whii h consists princip-illy of one lone street,
nearly a mile in length, is seated in a district, perhap-*,
the most fertile in theconniy; and the scenery around is
pleasingly diversified and picturesque : it is washed by
a branch of the Stour, which is crossed by a bridge of
three anhes, and the stream propels the machinery of
several flimr mills. The manufacture of horxe-hair
seating, employs several of the inhat>itaiit8 j but, the
majority are occupied in agricultural pursuits. Sir
Hyde Parker, Bart., of Melford Hall (a fine old seat
in this parish), is lord of the manor, and holds a court
baron annually ; and the magistrates assemble in petty
sessions here once a fortnight.

POST OFFICE, Catherine Catchpole, Post Mistress,
ftt seven, and aie despatched at half-past six in the evening.


The parish church of the Holy Trinity, stands upon

an eminence, at the north end of the village: it
beautiful specimen of the architecture of the fifteenth
century, but the small square tower is of later date. In
the chnrr h are several monuments to distinuuished
individuals, who formerly resided here — oneof these,
to Sir William Cordell, is an elegant piece of tomb
statuary: he was the speaker of the House of Com-
mons, in the reign of Mary, and a member of her
privy council. He founded the liospiial here, and
endowed it for the support of a warden, and twelve
poor men and two woineii — old and decayed house-
keepers. There is a place of worship for Independents,
and two public schools — one of the latter endowed,
the other conducted upon the National plan, and both
for children of either sex. A consideraole cattle lair
is hrld on Thursday in Whitsun-week. The parish
contained, by the returns made in 1831, ^514 inhabi-
tiiiits, and in 1841,2,597

JLoWESTOFTisa pari.sh, in the hundred of Loth-
ingland, containing the market town and .st'a-port of
its name, 114 miles n.e by n. from London (136 by
raiV), 22* e.s.e. from Norvvich (by rail), 10 s. frotn
Yatmoutk [18J hy rt///), and 45 n.k. l>y n. from Ips-
wich. It i» the terminn< of a line from the Norwich

end, antl a bttteiy near the Ne«s. The shore eradti*

a fiitn pebbly bottom — circnmstanci-s that render

npon the coast. It i» ch'efly composed of an exten-
sive arrancenient of house>. whose line of diieition
is in-arlv north and south, and conseqtiently faces the
ocean : the soil upon which it stands ii dry, and by
ikiltul industry has been conversed into deiiK'itttii
jtardens. The matine E-plan^de (for which the Messrs.
Lucas and Soti, weretiie contractors), erected at the
■onih end of the town, cotitains many haiidsonie re-
gidenres, ptincipally in the Italian style of architec-
ture, and have l>ceii expressly built tor tiie acconimo-
datittn of visiters, doting the sutiimer months. The
royal hotel, situated at the north end of the esplan-
ade, close to one of the piers, is an elegant luiMing,
fitted upintDe most mo lent style, and contains read-
ing hikI biliiaid looms, with hot and cold sea-water
ba'lis, &c.

The commerce of Lowestoft depends mainly upon
the herrimr fishery ; and the quatitity of this fish cured
here, foi hotne consnmption and exportat'on, is very
great. The Lotidon fi-hmongero are said to prefer
the Low stoft hertinss to tlio-e cured at Yarm"iiti',
th'iutfh they are generallv retailed under the niitne of
* Yarntonth herriiiRs.' Froitt the tnackerel fisiieiy, in
which the Lowestoft boats participate, th - principal
ad'untage deiived is the employtiieni of the fisherinen
onlil the hen iiiR season. The Norwich and Lowes-
»iy reswrt durini;ad-
veise wiinls and stress of «eatlier, itisti-ad (pf beitik!
exposed, as formerly, to thedilficiil ies and dangeis of
theopeii roadstead has lately been dccftnip'ishefl. 'ihe
outer harbonr is formed hi two stone iiicis, an' 'encloses
a space of about twenty aeres — this isconnetted with
the inner one, tiy a loek fifty feet wide, aiid ctoss- d
by a handsome swinv; bridu'e. F:oin the railway sta-
tion here, tieie are branches to the quays, so that
vesM'ls can loatiand iliscliaiee their cargoes with per-
fect convenience. The harbour is defended i)y a fott,
at the south end of the beach, another at the north

parish nf Lowestoft, containeil in 1831, 4,238 inhabi-
tants, and in 1841, 4.f)47.

Ahiiut two miles south from Lowestoft, in the same
hntidred as that town, are the fwn small fishing villa-
ges and parishes of Pakekiixo and Kirkley, the
