HENGRAVE, a parish in Thingoe district, Suffolk; on the river Lark, 3 miles NNW of Bury-ST. Edmunds r. station. Post town, Bury-ST. Edmunds. Acres, 1, 044. Real property, £1, 369. Pop., 219. Houses, 45. The manor belonged to the Hengraves, passed to the Greys, the Crown, the Kitsons, the Darcies, and the Gages; and belongs now to Sir Thomas R. ...

Gage, Bart. Hengrave Hall was built, in 1538, by Sir T. Kitson; and is a fine specimen of Tudor architecture, in brick with stone facings. The living is a rectory, annexed to the rectory of Flempton, in the diocese of Ely. The church is ancient, with a round tower; has not been used, as a church, since 1859; is maintained only as a mausoleum; and contains many monuments of the successive owners of the manor and other persons.
