Onehouse St John the Baptist


The Parish

The parish of Onehouse lies in central Suffolk about 2 miles west of the market town of Stowmarket. Onehouse, not quite aptly named as there are more than one, is a scattered settlement with not clear village centre in lanes to the north of the B1115 road which links Stowmarket to Hadleigh. Onehouse consists of a scatter of farms and cottages loosely grouped around the hall & church. This grouping is usually indicative of a "closed parish" whereby the local lord controlled the majority of the land and no proper village resulted due to restrictions on who could move in. The area around Onehouse is almost totally arable and would probably have been so during the period of this transcript as this is good fertile soil. Onehouse sits on a low ridge at about 60 metres above sea level, to its south is the valley of a tributary of the River Gipping and most drainage is headed thus and ultimately to the North Sea through Ipswich. Suffolk rural parishes are generally small and Onehouse was a small one for that breed, at only 800 acres it would still have supported almost 300 parishioners. In Domesday time Onehouse was held between no fewer than 4 separate landholders with one Ranulf Peverel being the largest. The parish supported 6 ploughs as well as having meadows and woodland.

The Church

St John the Baptist church lies at the end of a winding roughly surfaced lane and is accessed from the north from the lane that connects Harleston to Stowmarket. Strangely for a church with early evidence Pevsner gives it only a brief mention. The tower is the earliest feature, a round tower is usually so indicative, and gives it a Norman date. The nave is slightly later and in the Early English style, the chancel is a Victorian rebuild. For those not in the know, the church is unsigned from the above mentioned lane and it takes a brave man to set off on the winding lane across farmland to reach the church. Once there a parking space allows relief, the churchyard is bordered by mature hedges and the building lies almost hidden within, a gap in the hedge gives access to the graveyard where views open up and are not unduly restricted.
