Barsham is a village and civil parish in the Waveney district of the English county of Suffolk. It is about 2 miles (3.2 km) west of Beccles south of the River Waveney on the edge of the Broads. It is dispersed along the B1062 Beccles to Bungay road, 1 mile (1.6 km) north-west of Ringsfield.
Horatio Nelson's mother Catherine Suckling was born in the former rectory on 9 May 1725. She was important to him, despite her death when he was just nine years old - "The thought of former days brings all my mother to my heart, which shows itself in my eyes," he later recorded. The house is near the main road, close to the church, which has a stained glass window commemorating the Battle of Trafalgar.
