About Kettleburgh

Kettleburgh is a compact settlement nestling on the bank of the upper reaches of the river Deben. It may be historically listed as Kettleborough and was recorded in Domesday variously as "Ketelbiria", "Cetelbirig", "Ketlebere", "Kettleberga", "Chetelberia" and "Ketdesbirig".

An area known as Great Cockstool may refer to the presence of a "cucking stool" used for public derision of petty offenders. James Brighton Grant was the owner of the Deben brewery situated alongside the pub in the mid-19th century, until being imprisoned for not paying his church rates, one of the last people to be penalised for this. The brewery was subsequently sold to pay his debts.

A Romano-British settlement in the area of The Street has been dated to the 1st or 2nd century.
