Ilketshall (St. John)

ILKETSHALL (St. John), a parish, in the union and hundred of Wangford, E. division of Suffolk, 2 miles (S. E.) from Bungay; containing 71 inhabitants. It comprises by survey 744 acres; the soil is partly a stiff clay, and partly of a mixed quality, and the surface rather flat. The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £8. 13. 4., and in the patronage of the Crown: the tithes have been commuted for £217, and the glebe comprises 42 acres. The church is chiefly in the early English style, with a square embattled tower; the interior has been beautified, and the windows embellished with stained glass.
