C11-C14 sherds and two tudor bricks, found E of Sudbourne Hall by N Smedley of Ipswich Museum in May 1956. `Female skeleton of uncertain date but probably "recent" also found, and finally reburied' (S1). Findspot is very close to the site of `The Hospital', a group of buildings shown on a map by John Norden c.1600 (S2). This may be one of the two medieval hospitals recorded in Orford (St Leonard and St John the Baptist). The chapel of St John the Baptist was standing on the N side of the river in 1500, so this is perhaps the Hospital of St Leonard, recorded in existence in 1320 (S3).
