Gedgrave

GEDGRAVE, an extra-parochial liberty, locally in the parish of Sudborne, hundred of Plomesgate, E. division of Suffolk; containing 69 inhabitants, and comprising 1786 acres of land. This place, which forms an appendage to the borough of Orford, is bounded on the east and south by the river Alde, and on the west by Butley creek. It is of some antiquity, and appears to have been a parish, having, in 1291, a church of its own, but of which no vestige is now remaining.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
