"FRESSINGFIELD, a parish in the hundred of Hoxne, county Suffolk, 7 miles N.E. of Eye, and 4½ S. of Harleston, its post town and railway station. It includes the hamlets of Chepenhall, Whittingham Hall, and Ufford Green, besides two small places called Catterpole Green and Hussey Green. The land is chiefly arable, but there is a considerable tract of common, comprising about 600 acres. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Norwich, of the value with the rectory of Withersdale annexed, of £597, in the patronage of Emmanuel College, Cambridge. The church is an ancient structure, with tower and porch, dedicated to SS. Peter and Paul, and contains a brass of 1489, and a handsome altar-tomb to Archbishop Sancroft. The parochial charities, including an endowment of Archbishop Sancroft's school, produce about £60 per annum. The above archbishop was a native of, and died at, this place. The Baptists have a chapel, and there is a National school for both sexes. The parish contains four manors, of which Lord Henniker, Sir R. S. Adair, H. N. Heale, Esq., and the Rev. Augustus Cooper are the several lords."
