Collen (13th century); Colneye (14th century) and Colne (Modern).

Colne, set amid orchards beside the by-roads between Earith and Somersham, is prettily grouped around a triangular green which used to have a large pond in it, but sadly long since filled in. Behind the green is a small church built in 1900 to replace the one half a mile to the north which had fallen down in 1896.

In the north of the parish are the remains of a Romano-British settlement of considerable archaeological interest. The site is clearly marked, the conformation of the ground including certain ancient ditches. It was apparently home to community of fishermen and hunters in Roman times.

Colne is one of the parishes of the District of Huntingdonshire, whose administrative centre is Huntingdon, the other principle towns being St Ives home of the Chapel on the Bridge, St Neots the largest town in the County of Cambridgeshire, the Roman town of Godmanchester and Ramsey site of the former Abbey. Colne's nearest neighbours are Bluntisham, Earith and Somersham.
