If you search NROCAT
you'll find reference to a probate inventory for a Thomas COE of Edgefield, dating from 1700-02. This may be the same chap mentioned in the Hearth Tax Assessment for Michaelmas 1664 as having paid tax on 2 hearths.

If a probate inventory exists then there should be a will as well, this will probably be available via the NRO. Norfolk wills have been indexed in two series of books, one published by the Norfolk Record Society and the other in the 'Norfolk Genealogy' Series pblished by what is now the NFHS. These published indices are available at the NRO, the Society of Genealogists (SoG) in London and the NFHS library. Copies of the will and probate inventory may give a link to the father of your Mark Coe?

The parish registers dating back to 1666 are also held by the NRO - as are the Archdeacon's Transcripts (ATs) dating back to 1600. The NRO may be able to sell copies on fiches if you find it difficult to get to Norfolk.

There are a few old photos of Edgefield on the Nrofolk Library website
click on the 'Picture Norfolk' link

There are some online maps and aerial photos available via

Charlbury, Oxfordshire
