"HOCKERING village stands on a declivity of the Norwich road, near the Blackwater rivulet, 5 miles E. of East Dereham, and includes within its parish 457 inhabitants, 1,934 acres of land, mostly the property of Thomas Trench Berney, Esq., lord of the manor. Mrs. A. Howard and Mrs. Martineau have estates here. The Church (St. Michael,) is a rectory, valued in the King's Book at £7. 3s. 4d., and consolidated with that of Mattishall Burgh. The joint benefices were valued in 1831, at £600 per annum, and are in the patronage and incumbency of the Rev. Thos. Berney, M.A., who has here about 50 acres of glebe. The Primitive Methodists have a small chapel here." [William White, History, Gazetteer, and Directory of Norfolk (1845) - Transcription copyright © Paddy Apling]
