HOE, commonly called Hoo, is a small village and parish, 2 miles N.E. of East Dereham, containing 220 souls, and 1,345 acres of land. Edward Lombe, Esq., is lord of the manor; but the Dean and Chapter of Norwich, Mr. William Grounds, and a few smaller owners have estates here.

The Church, is a perpetual curacy, valued in the King's Book at £8. 13s. 4d., and consolidated with East Dereham. (See page 311 [which is the entry for East Dereham].) The nave was rebuilt in 1794, and the chancel, in 1820. The Church Land, 13A. 1R. 38P., is let for £20.

The Poor's Allotment, awarded in 1814, is 12A., on which the poor cut turf and whins. They have £4. 4s. yearly, from Gooch's Charity, but are entitled to a much larger share, as noticed at page 312 [which is the entry for East Dereham].
