Suffolk Lookup Requests / Re: Looking in Rendham for Gissing Boast

The Old Workhouse prior to the establishment of the Unions

The Saxmundham one was in Rendham Road, although I would need to investigate further to be sure of the location. These Old Workhouses were usually in cottages, and not many survive. Investigating the Sax/Rendham one is something to do when the weather improves :-)

Certainly the one for Framlingham was within the Castle.

After 1834 Plomesgate Poor Law Union came into being and the Union Workhouse was built at Wickham Market, now Deben Court as mentioned above.

I notice the 1861 census the family were living near Hill House (now Rendham Court). Also, at this time a very strong Congregational chapel in the village. As he was given his mother's maiden name as his first name (yes, we have that too), he may have preferred to be known as something else? Although in our case centuries later it continues.

I remember Faulkner in the Sudbury area. My maiden name is Fulker, and I have found many ways of this being mis-heard/mis-transcribed.

I am thinking of joining the Suffolk family history Society to see if they have any Ipswich records

Hi Carolyn, as an ex-committee member of SFHS I can tell you they do not hold records. If you go to their web site you will see what is available to buy on CD on their shop/publications page. They are arranged by Deanery.


Long time since I used shorthand, but I can decipher a few words, but I have Gregg shorthand!

I can find two baptism records for Suffolk born John Rivetts, one in Charsfield (1766) and the other in Ufford (1767) which seem to be in the parish of Woodbridge

Woodbridge is a market town.
Charsfield is a village with its own parish church dedicated to St Peter.
Ufford is a village with its own parish church dedicated to St Mary, it is a famous church due to its unusual font cover.

Suffolk / Re: is James Chaplin senI or linked to Charlie Chaplin senior

A woman at our History Society has a full tree taking her back to her ancestor, a sibling of Charles Chaplin from the Stowmarket area of the county (from recollection) so possibly Old Newton rather than Newton.
