British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Belton or Beletuna

In the 2nd of King Richard II., Hugh Fastolf, Esq., granted the lordship of this parish, with Bradwell, Pakefield, and Kirkley, to John Fastolf, his brother; both of whom were members of the illustrious family of that name; which family became divided into divers branches, and shared the inheritance between them.

The manor of Gapton, in this parish, and Bradwell, is now the estate of the Rev. George Anguish, of Somerleyton Hall. The advowson is in the Bishop of Norwich.

The west end of the nave of this parish church contains the family vault of the Ives', who possessed considerable property in this hundred; with a memorial to John Ives, Esq., F.R. and A.S., Suffolk Herald Extraordinary. He was a native of Yarmouth, and resided during his early youth, with his parents, in this village.

Mr. Ives was author of "Remarks upon the Garianonum of the Romans, the Site and Remains fixed and described,"12mo., 1774; also, "Select Papers relating to English Antiquities." He possessed a choice and valuable collection of pictures, coins, books, and manuscripts, relating to archaeology; these were disposed of by public auction, at his decease, which happened in 1776, in the 25th year of his age. John Ives, Esq., his father, survived until 1793, and was buried here.

ARMS. Ives: argent; a chevron between three moors' heads, sable. Crest: a boar passant, sable; collared and chained, or.

CHARITIES. The church lands consist together of about seven acres, the rents of which amount to 6 6s. a year, and are applied to the ordinary expense of the church. The parish clerk has 1A. of the same, rent free. An allotment of about 9 acres, awarded for the poor, on an inclosure, in 1810, lets for 12 12s. a year; and the rent is laid out in coals, which are distributed among the poor, in winter.
