CALDECOT, commonly called COCKET, is a small parish, 6 miles S.W. of Swaffham, containing only 39 inhabitants, and 930 acres of land, belonging to Sir Henry Paston Bedingfield, Bart., who is patron of the sinecure rectory, valued in the King's Book at £3. 1s. 10d., and now at £6, in the incumbency of the Rev. Alexander Thurtell. M.A., of Oxburgh.

Of the Church, which was dedicated to the Virgin Mary, no remains now exist. The whole parish is in one farm, occupied by Mr. Henry Oldfield.
