The parish of Farcet was established in 1851, having previously been part of the parish of Stanground, its northern neighbour. The vicarage of Stanground included the curacy of the village church. It is located northeast of Yaxley and adjacent to the Peterborough suburb of Old Fletton.

Until 1965 Farcet was located in the County of Huntingdonshire. After mergers in 1965 and 1974 the county became part of Cambridgeshire. It was part of the Norman Cross Rural District 1894-1974 and is now in the Huntingdonshire administrative district of Cambridgeshire.
