Churchyard information

John and Ann Cocks
Following the item about Robert Cocks in the item posted on this blog on Tuesday 20 July it has been pointed out that one of the more prominent graves in All Saints churchyard (on the left as you enter from the Green and with a metal railing around it) is for John and Ann Cocks. The obvious conclusion is that they were the parents of Robert Cocks but this has not been verified.
The information on the memorial is that John Cocks died on 9 April 1825 aged 63. His wife Ann Cocks died on 2 February 1851 aged 85.
Now if it can be confirmed that they are Robert Cocks’ parents and that they lived in Old Buckenham then this may provide more details on where Robert Cocks was born and perhaps his reasons for being such a wonderful benefactor to this village.
Can you help? Just leave any further information by email to

Thank you.
