Ancestors In Assington

A Memory of Assington

I am researching my wife's family history and on one side of her family is Charles Freeman Parson. She is his 2nd Great Garandaughter. We know that he lived and farmed at Assington House which I am told that he also built. The Parsons were also tenant farmers at Thorington Hall Nr Stoke by Nayland for a century. Its now National Trust and is open on heritage day in September. I also have an old photograph of the family with horse and carriage outside Assington House probably from the late 1800's.
Can anyone add and information or detail on the Parson families in Assington and around please?
