DENGIE, or Dengey, which gives name to this Hundred, is a parish of scattered houses on the north side of the vale of a small rivulet or creek, 2 miles W. of the sea coast, 3 miles E. N. E. of Southminster, and 9 miles E. S. E. of Maldon. It has 219 inhabitants, and 2306a. 1r. 29p. of land, partly in low marshes, near the creek. About 160a of common was enclosed in 1845.
Captain Henry Fanshawe is lord of the manor of Dengie Hall; but a great part of the parish belongs to J. Grice, J. Lozell, R. Page, J. Malden, C. G. Round, and several smaller owners. A reputed manor, called Bacons, is held by various proprietors.
The Church (St. James) is an ancient tiled building, with a wooden tower and two bells.
The rectory, valued in K. B. at £13, and in 1831 at £762, is in the patronage and incumbency of the Rev. Octavius Brock, M. A., who has a good residence and 14a of glebe. The tithes were commuted in 1839.
