Hardwick

HARDWICK, an extra-parochial liberty, locally in the parish of Hawstead, union and hundred of Thingoe, W. division of Suffolk, 1½ mile (S. by W.) from Bury St. Edmund's; containing 19 inhabitants, and comprising 65 acres. Hardwick House, the handsome seat of Sir T. G. Cullum, Bart., was the residence of Sir John Cullum, uncle of the present proprietor, a learned antiquary, and author of the History of Hawstead, who died here, and was interred in the parish church. There are almshouses for six aged women, originally founded and endowed by Sir Robert Drury, and removed from their ancient site to this place.
