      BOCKING, a village, a parish, and a subdistrict, in Braintree district, Essex. The village stands on the left bank of Blackwater river, and on the Braintree railway, adjacent to Braintree; forms a suburb of that town; consists chiefly of one long street; and is a seat of petty sessions. A trade in baizes, called "bockings," was at one time prominent; and a manufacture of silk and crape is now carried on. The parish includes also Bocking-street and Bocking-Church-street, ¾ and 2 miles distant from Braintree, both with post offices under that town, and the former situated on the branch Roman road from Chelmsford. ...
      "BRAINTREE <../Braintree/index.html> and BOCKING, though distinct parishes, form one continuoous town, extending for a mile on the road between Chelmsford <../Chelmsford/index.html> and Halstead , and the rivers Blackwater and Podsbrook, and having a united population in 1861 of 8,186

      * It is perhaps of interest and significance to note that his youngest child is named Rebecca Ely and that a Marriage Bond shows John Collis aged 21 of Castle Hedingham married Dorcas Ely aged 20 of Sibyl Hedingham at Gestingthorpe about 1748.
