BOOK - The Essex Hundred: Histories
By Andrew Summers (Author), John Debenham (Author), Elizabeth Summers (Illustrator)
Published by Summersbook, Southend-on-Sea, Essex, 2008 (updated 2013)

Softcover...19.95 (C$)

The Essex Hundred: Histories has been updated for 2013. The historical notes that appeared in the Essex Hundred generated such an interest that the authors decided to sit down and write up the notes into full chapters. The result; an attractive book detailing Essex history in an informative and entertaining manner. From the Romans sacking of Colchester to Fords modern day wind turbines each chapters reflect the diversity of the county as well as showing the role the county has played in the nation's development.

Two thousands years of Essex History. One hundred chapters including ONE NIGHT IN BOXTED,.... The town of Colchester had been involved in a long dispute with Lionel de Bradenhan, the Lord of Langenhoe Manor. The King, Edward III had gone straight to Boxted Hall ....and in PLOTLANDERS,.... The plotlands scheme was born. Whole areas around Laindon, Dunton and Billericay were offered for sale. In HARVEY's SEA FENCIBLES,.... few people apart from historical naval buffs, know of Sir Eliab Harvey of Rolls Park, Chigwell and of all the units, regiments and formations that have served in the British Forces, the Essex Sea Fencibles do not spring to mind...ELECTED BY 32 tells of... The two MPs chosen were the celebrated diarist Samuel Pepys who was working for the admiralty, and Sir Anthony Deane, a master shipwright. Harwich was considered a truly 'rotten' borough....THE BRICK MAKER OF CHADWELL ST MARY, shows another side of Daniel Defoe considered the founder of the English novel and best remembered for penning Robinson Crusoe. Less well known perhaps is Defoe's political and business career, much of it surrounded in mystery and intrigue.... and many more.
