COCKTHORPE, 6 miles W.N.W. of Holt, is a small parish comprising 42 souls, 7 houses, and about 500a. of land, in two farms, occupied by Ness Harvey and Wightman Sooby, and belonging to Lord Calthorpe, the lord of the manor, and patron of the CHURCH, which is dedicated to All Saints, and is a rectory, valued in the King's book at £5, but consolidated with Blakeney rectory, Little Langham vicarage, and Glanford [sic] curacy, in the incumbency of the Rev. Jph. Cotterill. The joint livings were valued at £506 in 1831, and there are 26a. of glebe. Sir Cloudesley Shovel, Sir John Narborough, and Sir Christopher Minns, three valiant admirals of the 17th century, are said to have been born at Cockthorpe
