In 1985 the Coddenham Village History Club came into being through the legacy left by Cannon William Murrell Lummis in the form of a written History of Coddenham compiled by both him and his father over many years. Cannon Lummis only spent the days of his youth in the village, but throughout his life he researched and collected information about Coddenham; adding to and expanding on the work done by his father. He made four copies of the History of Coddenham, two of which are now in the Ipswich Record Office. A copy was given to the Coddenham National School and is now lost. The fourth copy had remained in the village & those who read it were intrigued by its content and felt strongly that this History of Coddenham was important and should not be forgotten. That it must be shared with everyone who was interested and that more research should be undertaken and records kept of important events, so ensuring an ongoing history of the village for the future.
