To SAXMUNDHAM. - Pped, from the
Crown and Castle. Thursday

day and Saturday



^AXIMUNDHAM is a parish in the hundred of
Plomesuate — the mat ket town, small and neat, is 89
miles N.E. from London. 21 N.E.by N.from Ipswich, and
7 N.vv. from Aldboroush ; seated in avalley, neaiarivulet
that runs into the Aide. It consists chiefly of one
street, running from north to south, the houses of
which are, for the most part, modern erections — the
town having been much improved throughout within
the la>t fifty years, and nearly all the liabitiitions re-
built or new fronted. Saxmundham is a polling station
at the eledioii of members to represent East Suffolk.
The town is not benefitei) by any manufacture, unless
that of malt may be mentioned, several persons being
engaged in that bianch.

The parisli chuich of S.iint Julni, is a neat edifice,
situated a little to the south of the town, in a rural
spot, embosomed in trees. Some few years since, it
underwent a thorough repair, when nearly two hun-
dred new sitiiims were added, partly at the expense of
the churcii commissioneis: the living is a dischaiged
rectory, in the presentation of Willium Long, Esq., who
is lord of the manor; the Rev. Laiincelot lirowne is
the incumbent, and his present curate the Rev. Robert
Mann. An endowment, by a rent charge, was made
by William Corhold, for the instruction of a limited
number of poor children of the parisii. The sun oiind-
ing grounds, belonging to the manor hoase, are justly
admired, and contribute highly to the beauty of the

southern entrance to the town ; ilie not them approach
is also very fine, and the paik, rivir and plant.itions
present themselves to great advantage. The D'nrket,
which was granted in the 4th of Kdwaid 11, is lieM on
Thursday, and is a tolerable one for grain and cattle.
Fairs, Tiiesday in Whitsun week, and the first Thurs-
day in October. The pari-h contained, in 1831, 1,048
inhabitants, and in 1841, 1,097.

About one mile north from Saxmundham, in the
hundred of Hoxne, is the village and parish of Kelsale,
strictly of an agricultural character. The chuich is
deilicated to Saint Mary : the living is a rectory, con-
solidated with Carlton, in the paiionage of the family
of Bence. A free school, su|)poried by vaiious grants,
is conducted upon the National (ilaii. Population of
the patish in 1831. 1^103 ; in 1841, 1,156.

Leiston parish is in the hundred of Blything— the
village is situated about 4 miles e. from Saxmund-
ham, and about two fiom the sea-shore. A consider-
able iron foundry and manufactory of agiicultuial
implements hHS been prosperously cat ried on here for
several years, furnishing employment to many hands,
and to the village an interest of which it would
otherwise be destitute. The church is dedicated to
Saint Margiiet; the living is a perpetual cutary in the
presentation of the Haberdasher's Company, London.
The parish, (inchiding Sizewell hamlet,) lontained,
in 1831, 1,070 inhabitants, and in 1841,1,171
