Parish History

Sudbury All Saints is an Ancient parish in Derbyshire.

SUDBURY (All Saints), a parish, in the union of Uttoxeter, hundred of Appletree, S. division of the county of Derby, 5 miles (E. by S.) from Uttoxeter; containing 599 inhabitants. The river Dove forms its southern boundary. The parish comprises about 3600 acres of land, mostly pasture and dairy-farms; the surface is undulated, the soil various, and the scenery picturesque, and well timbered. Sudbury Hall, the property of Lord Vernon, is a fine mansion of brick, in the Elizabethan style, erected in the early part of the 17th century, and contains many stately apartments; the south front overlooks the Derby and Uttoxeter road, and a beautiful terrace, tasteful flower-gardens, and a fine lake, cover about thirty acres. The park consists of about 600 acres, with a large stock of deer, and has a spacious carriage-drive two miles in length. This delightful retreat was the residence of the Dowager Queen Adelaide from August 1840 to the year 1843. The living is a rectory, valued in the king's books at £14. 13. 1½.; patron, Lord Vernon: the tithes have been commuted for £600, and there are 110 acres of glebe, with an excellent rectory-house. The church is a venerable structure, mantled with ivy, and stands at the west end of the village, in the pleasure-grounds of the Hall. It consists of a nave, a beautiful chancel, two aisles, and a tower, and having been put into thorough repair in 1830, is now one of the handsomest village churches in the kingdom: there are some ancient monuments to the Montgomery and Vernon families. Schools are supported by Lord Vernon; and besides almshouses for seven persons, are several minor charities.
