Extends about eight miles along the north hank of the river Thames, opposite Erith Reach, Long Reach, and St. Clement's Reach; from Hornchurch Marsh to Grays Thurrock. It extends about 12 miles northward, but decreases from 7 to 2 miles in breadth. The small river Ingerbourn flows along its western boundary to the river Thames; and other rivulets flow through it, and unite their waters with the Thames at Purfleet and Cold Harbour. It is crossed near South Weald and Brentwood by the Eastern Counties Railway; and, on the banks of the Thames, by the Tilbury and Southend Railway. It is in the Southern Parliamentary Division of Essex, in the Diocese of Rochester, Archdeaconry of Essex, and Deanery of Chafford. It has a fertile soil, and picturesquely undulated and well-wooded surface, with many handsome seats, some of them commanding fine views of the busy Thames and the Kentish hills. The following enumeration of its fourteen parishes, and four hamlets, shows their territorial extent and their population in 1851.

Best Broadband Providers in the UK - tested in October 2010.A very strong recommendation for a Gas Safe engineer in Essex is N R Heating who fixed several gas leaks in my home today. The work was very professional, totally committed to safety and quality; plus the price was very competitive. New boiler installation was also another brilliant service. A very high class recommendation for a Gas Safe Engineer in Hornchurch. And Last updated on: Wednesday, 29-Jul-2009 17:57:32 BST
