Or Losa

This Hundred is bounded Eastward, by that of Plomesgate; on the South, by Wilford; on the West, by Bosmere and Clay don; and on the North, by Hoxne. The lords of Framlingham for the time being, were seized thereof, with many ancient and extensive privileges and immunities belonging to it; over which they appointed Bailiff's, in succession.

It is held in the nature of a franchise, and is exempt from the ordinary jurisdiction of the Sheriff"; originally granted from the Crown, with privileges for the grantee to hold Pleas, and Leets, or Courts of View of Frankpledge; to enjoy the goods of felons, fugitives, felons de se; and the return of writs, to appoint a Coroner, to have estrays, &c., within certain limits.

This Hundred contains the following Parishes:


From the time of Roger Bigod, his successors, lords of Framlingham, have enjoyed the above privileges, in the several parishes within this Hundred, except Marlesford and Kenton, until the manors of Earl Soham, Ash, Eyke, Hacheston, Hoo, and Kettleburgh, were sold.

The lord of this Hundred had the goods of William Percy, of Framlingham, who was hanged for felony, at Melton, in the 3rd and 4th of Philip and Mary: the goods of Robert Kempster, of Earl Soham, for flight from felony committed there, the 20th of Edward IV.: the goods of Roger Gilbert, a felo de se, at Easton, the 36th of James I.; and also estrays taken at Rendlesham, the 36/A of Henry VI., and waifs and estrays in the 23rd Henry VII. in other places.
