History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

According to the 13th century Liber Feodorum (Book of Fees), the annual rent for the manor was the performance of "unum saltum et siffletum et unum bumbulum" (one jump, one whistle, and one fart) at the king's court every Christmas.

In 1597 the entire parish was cited before a church court for laxity. This may have been the influence of the incumbent manorial lord, Ralph Cantrell, a recusant Catholic.

Hemingstone Hall is a brick-built Jacobean country house built in 1620.

The Suffolk folk singer Percy Webb was born in Hemingstone in 1897.
