KETTLEBURGH (St. Andrew), a parish, in the union of Plomesgate, hundred of Loes, E. division of Suffolk, 2¼ miles (S. W. by S.) from Framlingham; containing 355 inhabitants. This parish, which is situated on the river Deben, comprises 1435a. 3r. 12p.; the soil of the greater portion is clay, and that of the remainder of a mixed quality. The surface, though generally flat, has some gentle undulations, and the village is neatly built. The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £16, and in the gift of the Earl of Gosford: the tithes have been commuted for £405, and the glebe comprises 16 acres. The church is a handsome structure, in the later English style, with a square embattled tower. Several Roman relics have been found.
