St Mary, Aldeby

ALDEBY, a parish of scattered houses, in the vale of the Waveney, 3 miles NE of Beccles and 16 miles SE by E of Norwich, contains 496 souls, and 3041 acres of land, belonging to many proprietors. The Trustees of Ampton School, Suffolk, own the Hall farm, (380A) and are lords of the manor, in which the copyholds pay small certain fines. Here was a small Priory, founded in the reign of Henry I, by Agnes, wife of Robert de Kia, for black monks. Its remains are now a malt-house. It was granted at the dissolution to the Dean and Chapter of Norwich, who are still appropriators of the tithes and patrons of the Church, which has a tower, rising between the nave and chancel. The benefice is a perpetual curacy, valued in 1831 at £64, and now enjoyed by the Rev AF Bellman.”
