Lackford  Suffolk


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

LACKFORD, a parish in Thingoe district, Suffolk; near Icknield-street and the river Lark, 3¼ miles N of Saxham r. station, and 5½ NW of Bury-St. Edmunds. Post-town, Bury-St. Edmunds. Acres, 2,243. Real property, £1,720. Pop., 197. Houses, 37. The land all belongs to the Rev. James Holden. There are rabbit warrens. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Ely. Value, £320. * Patrons, the Trustees of the late Sir C. E. Kent, Bart. The church is a thatched building, with a tower.

Although Lackford Hundred was named after the village of Lackford, the village was not in fact in the hundred.
