Ashbocking is a village and civil parish in the Mid Suffolk district of Suffolk, England. The village is about seven miles north of Ipswich, and according to the 2001 census had a population of 318, increasing to 356 at the 2011 Census.

In 1326, the Ashbocking All Saints Church was impropriated to the monastery of Christ Church, Canterbury. After the reformation, the patronage of the church passed to the Lord Chancellor. The church building dates back to the 14th century with later additions and was remodelled in 1872.[2]

The lords of the manor were the Tollemache family of Helmingham Hall.[3]

Peter Harold Wright, a recipient of the Victoria Cross during the Second World War, is buried in All Saints churchyard.
