COLVESTON, a small parish, 2 miles N. of Mundford, and 8½ miles S. by W. of Swaffham, has only 42 inhabitants, and 750 acres of land, all the property of Lord Berners, of Didlington Hall, in the adjoining parish, the manor having been long possessed by his family, one of whom built Colveston Hall, which is now occupied by labourers.
The Church (Virgin Mary) was dilapidated at an early period, and not a vestige of it now remains. The rectory is consolidated with Didlington. (See page 375 [which is the entry for Didlington.)
