A little history about Codicote

Codicote is a large but attractive village south of Hitchin in Hertfordshire. It has lovely timber framed and chequered brick houses, of special interest being the 18th century Pond House and a half timbered restaurant that used to be the George and Dragon Inn.

Codicote Lodge is 18th century and Codicote Bury 17th century. Codicote Parish Council maintain a website for the services, businesses and amenities of the village.

Codicote church was mostly rebuilt in 1853 but still retains the 13th century work in its nave and aisles. A most unusual structure north of Codicote village is the Node Dairy and Stud, built in 1927. It is circular in design, and thatched, with a circular courtyard and a tower which is, in fact, a silo.

The first Anglo-Saxon settlements in England were created by the invaders themselves. Later on some of these small groups tended to leave the villages to found other settlements elsewhere. The cote part in the name Codicote is typical of this second phase and so it is likely that this village was founded in the later period of colonisation. The chances are that a man with a name something like Cudda came to the area and founded a settlement that became Cuddacote and eventually Codicote. In fact the earliest form of the name is recorded in 1002 as Cuthingcoton, meaning the cottages of Cuthheres people. A later alternative form of the name was Cudingacotu in which the first element is Cuda a diminutive of Cuthhere.

In the year 1002 Codicote enters the written records for the first time when King Ethelred the Unready, its owner, sold it by means of a charter for the sum of 150 mancusae, or 900 shillings of pure gold to his faithful minster Elfhelm. It was described as being five measures of ground and known as Et Cuthingcoton. Shortly after this it passed to the Abbot and Chapter of St Albans Abbey.

By 1086, the Domesday Book shows Codicotes value at six pounds. There was a total of eight hides in the manor, perhaps 960 acres, of which the Abbots bailiff farmed three and a quarter hides as the Abbots home farm. The rest was shared between a number of tenants, three humbler cottagers and one Frenchman who may have been the bailiff. In addition there were four serfs. This suggests a total population of about 100 persons including women and children. There were two mills that are now known as Codicote Mill and Fulling Mill, some meadow and pasture and some woodland.
