Pettaugh (St. Catherine)

PETTAUGH (St. Catherine), a parish, in the union of Bosmere and Claydon, hundred of Thredling, E. division of Suffolk, 3 miles (S.) from Debenham; containing 266 inhabitants. It comprises by measurement 795 acres, chiefly a heavy, stiff, clayey soil; in some places the land is of a better quality, and the whole is well adapted for pasture: the surface is broken into gentle undulations. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the king's books at £9. 12. 1., and in the gift of the family of Tollemache: the tithes have been commuted for £190, and there are 18 acres of glebe. The church is principally in the early English style.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, seventh edition, published 1858.
