Fordley  Suffolk


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Fordley like this:

FORDLEY, a quondam parish in Blything district, Suffolk; on the river Badingham, near the East Suffolk railway, 3¾ miles NE of Saxmundham. It is now incorporated with Middleton; but the living of it still ranks as a rectory, annexed to the rectory of Middleton, in the diocese of Norwich. Its church stood in the same yard as the church of Middleton.
