COXFORD, a hamlet, in the parish of East Rudham, union of Docking, hundred of Gallow, W. division of Norfolk, 5¼ miles (W.) from Fakenham. William Chene founded a priory at Rudham in the reign of Stephen, which was subsequently removed to this place. Among other grants, the prior obtained license, in the 11th of Henry III., to hold a fair on the festival of the Translation of St. Thomas the Martyr; and in the 3rd and 15th of Edward I. a free market on Monday, and a fair on the eve and day of St. Matthew the Apostle, were bestowed. The boundary wall of the priory inclosed about 30 acres; and an arch and some other portions are still standing. The annual revenue, in 1428, amounted to £222. 12. 8.; but at the Dissolution it was only estimated at £153. 7. 1.
