Lound Parish

British Isles Genealogy | County of Suffolk


The demesne of this parish was anciently in Sir Robert de Blundeston. In 1392, Sir John Tudenham, Knt., died seized of this lordship: it afterwards passed to Margaret, sister and sole heir of Sir Thomas Tudenham, relict of Sir Edmund Bedingfield, Knt., and niece to the above Sir John Tudenham.

It has long since been the inheritance of the Jernegan family; from whom it passed, with the Somerleyton estate, to the respective proprietors of that domain, and is now in the possession of the Rev. George Anguish, who presents to the rectory.

In 1330, King Edward III., licensed Walter de Filby and Edmund, parson of Lound, to settle on the hospital of St. Giles, in Norwich, one messuage, 15A. of land, 2A. of meadow, and 44 A. of reed-harth (or juncary), in Norwich; and two years after, he licensed Walter de Filby, Sir Thomas de Preston, rector of Colby, and Sir Stephen, rector of Lound, to settle a messuage, SA. of land, and the advowson of Mundham St. Peter, on the said hospital.

The Rev. Norton Nicholls, LL.B., rector of this parish, has been already noticed, in the parish of Blundeston, where he resided; and a copy of a letter, occasioned by his death, written privately to a friend, may be seen in the "Gentleman's Magazine," for 1810, part ii., p. 346.

Mem. Near the water mill, some years since, on the side of this parish, were found several pieces of ancient armor, and various coins.

CHARITIES. An annuity of 6s. was given by John Spalding, for bread, to be distributed among the poor of this parish, quarterly. This is charged on a cottage, and three or four acres of land, in Lound, the property of Samuel Crickmer. An allotment of 20A. 2R. 18p., was awarded, on the inclosure, for the use of the poor residing in this parish, which lets for about 34 a year; and the rent is laid out in buying coals, which are given among the poor people of the parish.

1. "Lound," a Saxon word, signifying "a plain among trees. "The meaning of the word corresponds exactly with the situation of this village.
