"... (or ALDEBURGH) is a parish, seaport, municpal borough, railway station, and bathing-place, 94 miles from London, 42 from Colchester, 24 north-east from Ipswich, and 7 south-east from Saxmundham, in the Eastern division of the county, Plomesgate union and hundred, Framlingham and Saxmundham county court district, rural deanery of Orford, archdeaconry of Suffolk, and diocese of Norwich: it is pleasantly situated in the valley of Slaughden, sheltered by a steep hill, with the river Alde on the west, whence the town derives its name. The river Alde runs south by Orford, parallel with the sea about 10 miles hence before entering the ocean.
The corporation of the borough ... the bailliffs are elected annually on the 8th of September from the twelve capital burgesses, and then become justices of the peace, and also hold the office of coroner ... the income of the body is about 550, arising from 200 acres of marsh land.
The church of SS. Peter and Paul stands on the top of a hill westward of the town, and has been restored; the chancel has been entirely renewed and a magnificent stained window, representing The Four Evangelists and The Adoration of the Lamb, has been placed therein ... many fine monuments ... one to the poet Crabbe, who was born here; ... a very fine organ ... 1864 by Walker and Son, of London, at a cost of nearly 400; the churchyard ... a view of the North Sea. The register commences in the year 1691.
The living is a vicarage, yearly value 383, with residence ... held by the Rev. Henry [-] Dowler, M.A., of Magdalene College, Cambridge.
There are National and British schools for boys and girls, and likewise an infant school.
There are also two chapels, the one belonging to the Open Communion Baptists, and the other to the Particular Baptists.
Aldborough is much resorted to in the summer for bathing; there is a beautiful walk along the beach of nearly 2 miles, and the terrace on the hill behind the town commands a delightful prospect; many pretty villas facing the sea are let as summer residences. A regatta is held annually early in August. There are three commodious hotels, the 'White Lion', occupied by Mr. William Moore, which stands on the beach, with a frontage so extended that nearly every room in it faces the sea; the 'East Suffolk', in High-street, conducted by Mr. William Pepper; and the 'Brudenell', facing the sea.
On the Parade is a public library and reading-room ....
On the sea-shore is a small ancient building, known as the Moot Hall, in which the early deliberations of the corporation are supposed to have been holden ....
There is a haven for small vessels engaged in the fishery for cod, soles, lobsters, and sprats, as also in the coasting trade. There is also a custom-house, coastguard station, and brewery; and boat building is carried on.
A market was formerly held on Wednesday and Saturday, but it has been discontinued.
Vernon Wentworth, Esq., is lord of the manor and principal landowner.
In this parish the crag formation peculiar to Suffolk and Norfolk is very fully developed.
The parish contains 1,782 acres, rated at 6,608 17s. 6d.; and the population in 1861 was 1,710.
Parish Clerk, James Dance, Back-street"
