pic26 ...  Huntsmen and hounds leaving Rochford Square, date unknown (courtesy Peter Thorogood).

Editor Note. The original photo has the typescript caption "ESSEX UNION HUNT AT ROCHFORD: Leaving the Market Square". Terry Ive has spotted that the photo is the wrong way around - its now corrected so the photo doesn't look funny anymore but the caption on the corrected original is now, of course, back to front!

pic21 ...  This is an extract from the 1777 Chapman and AndrĂ© Essex map, showing part of the western end of the RDCA district. The above Click Here link on the map takes you no further. However, there are many internet sources of old maps of our area. This part of the site ancestry.com is one of them. You will find lots of other sources by Googling Old Essex Maps: the site british-history.ac.uk is a useful starting point that is relatively non-commercial.
