Hartismere Redlingfield and Cracknell

Copinger - The Manors of Suffolk

Redlingfield in the Hundred of Hartismere

THIS Hundred - bounded on the east by that of Hoxne, on the west by that of Blackbourn ; on the north by the River Waveney, which divides it from Norfolk, and on the south by the Hundreds of Bosmere and Claydon and Stow.

 The CRACKNELL family lived in the village of Redlingfield, in the Hundred of Hartismere. 

Manor of Redlingfield
In the year 1120 Manasses de Gratia, Earl of Ghisness (or Guisnes) and Emma his wife, daughter of William de Arras, built here, upon a lordship belonging to the said William, a Benedictine nunnery, which was endowed with portions of the churches of Milton, Walpole, Levington, Redlingfield and Rishangles, with the manors of the last two named places, and lands and tithes in about 30 other parishes.

 The village of Eye had a Benedictine monastery.

How did I come across all this? 

By continuing to follow up on branches  of my family tree. 

I'm finding it fascinating, especially as my searches are leading me away from the North of England. I wrote family tree, but it ought to be trees as it's so convoluted. I must admit to searching hither and thither around the lists of names and into the places where they lived and occupations.

Cotton, calico, wool and timber, spinning, weaving, and printing for one north of England branch.
The Cracknells  worked in agriculture, similar to family in the north, in Chipping.
