British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

This Hundred is divided from Norfolk on the North, by the Waveney; on the South, it is bounded by the Hundred of Blything; on the East, by that and Mutford; and on the West, by Hoxne Hundred. It contains two Market-towns, Beccles and Bungay; and the following Parishes:

All-Saints, South Elmham Flixton
Sancroft, or St. George, South Elmham Homersfield, St. Mary, South Elmham, Elmham
St. James, St. Margaret, St. Michael, St. Nicholas, St. Peter, South Elmham, Elmeham

The above Parishes are represented in old deeds as one Township, and called "The Deanery of South Elmham"

are commonly termed "The Seven Parishes of Ilketshals." The remaining Parishes about Beccles are as follows:

The fee of this Hundred was in the Crown, in the time of Edward I.; which that King granted, with other estates, to the value of 400 per annum, to John de Clavering, for life; in consideration of the settlement made by the said John, upon the said King, of his Castle and Manor of Warkworth, and divers other lordships; which at his death returned to the Crown, and so continues.
