LOUGHTON AND NEIGHBOURHOOD
Pigot's Essex 1832-3 Trade Directory
LOUGHTON is a village and parish, in the hundred of Ongar; about 12 miles from London, 5 from Epping, and the like distance from Waltham Abbey. It is situated on the main road to Epping, and extends nearly two miles in length; but from the most part the houses are straggling, without any pretensions to uniformity, or possessing any building calculated to excite attention. There are, however, several handsome private residences in the village and its vicinity; and the neighbourhood is admired for its rural and picturesque scenery. William Whitaker Maitland, Esq., of Loughton Hall, is lord of the manor, and also patron of the church living, which is a rectory, held by the venerable Archdeacon Hamilton; the present curate is the Rev. S. Rogers. The church, which was rebuilt some few years since, stands at an inconvenient distance from the town. Here is a chapel for baptist dissenters; and a school, upon the national plan, supported by contributions. The number of inhabitants in the parish of Loughton, according to the late census, was 1,269; having nearly doubled its population since the year 1801.
