    Essex Villages Hundreds Index for Historical Trade Directories Local Information

    **The county of Essex is split into many Hundreds. The county boundaries have hardly changed since the East Saxon kingdom was established. Saxon warriors were rewarded with land, units of which were known as a "mark", and organised into Hundreds; there were about 20 Hundreds in the County. A great warrior might receive an entire hundred, a lesser man a few marks. Some sort of legal system, based upon communal responsibility, and administered within the hundreds and marks (which became manors) was developed. The Hundreds in the census for 1841 consist of the following, with links to my relevant page, and other useful information as it is added.

    This is the same information, but with links to many 1841 Census for Essex
