Flixton Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk

Flixton or Flixtuna

Is now a hamlet of Blundeston, and supposed to have received its name from Felix, the Burgundian, Bishop of the East Angles. It was formerly a parish of itself, and had a chapel, the ruins of which are yet visible. This edifice appears to have been dilapidated more than a century, for in 1704, George Burrows, chapel-warden, delivered a surplice, cup, cloth, cushion, two books, and other articles, to Henry Green, his successor; from which it is presumed that the chapel was at that time desecrated, but for what reason is not known. The building, however, is supposed to have received so much damage from the fatal hurricane of the 27th November, 1 703, as to have been rendered unfit for reparation.

The parish register is still extant, in the possession of Mr. Wm. Neslen. Gillingwater, in his "History of Lowestoft," has preserved the names of several rectors: the last rector of this parish was Thos. Skeete, in 1704; and the last chapel warden, was Thomas Fiske, in 1717. The chapel was dedicated to St. Andrew.

The lordship is annexed to that of Blundeston, and 1ms passed, since its purchase by John Wentworth, Esq., of John Mighells, of Chelmondiston, with the Somerleyton estate.
