Revd. Alfred Inigo Suckling was a Suffolk man, holding the titles of the manors in the village of Woodton. He became stipendiary curate of Margaretting in Essex in 1834 with a useful income of £120 plus surplice fees and Glebe House. He wrote four volumes of 'antiquities' of Suffolk and one of Essex, which was published in full in 1845.  He became Rector of Barsham in Suffolk just before his death in 1856.
