IS in the eastern division of Suffolk, in the Deanery of Hoxne, Archdeaconry of Suffolk, and Diocese of Norwich. It has two detached parishes (Carlton and Kelsale) in Blything Union, and its other 24 parishes form Hoxne Union, and constitute a fertile district, averaging about nine miles in length and breadth; bounded, on the north, by the river Waveney, which separates it from Norfolk; on the east by Wangford and Blything Hundreds; on the south, by Plomesgate, Loes, and Thredling Hundreds; and on the west by Hartismere Hundred. It is watered by several rivulets, flowing northward to the Waveney; and on its southern side are the sources of the river Aide, and near Laxfield the chief source of the Blythe. It has generally a strong loamy soil, well cultivated, and rising in picturesque undulations, but subsiding in a champaign tract, in the vale of the Waveney. It has only one small market town (Stradbroke), but those or Framlingham, Saxmuudham, Eye, and Harleston, are near its borders; and it has within its limits several large villages. The following enumeration of its 20 parishes shews their territorial extent, and their population in 1851. The high constables are Mr. Alfred Bead, of Syleham, and Mr. Joseph Blomfield, of Badingham.
