Family History

Marshland has operated a family history information service since 1998 specialising in the Essex villages of the Dengie Hundred (See below) and the Essex Regiment, Essex Yeomanry and their predecessors in Essex Militia and the 44th and 56th Regiment of Foot.

During this period a significant number of local records plus access to a large database of local people born from the 1300's up to the First World War has been collected which when added to local knowledge of helps to provide people with information on their ancestors who may have lived in this area.

Marshland provides talks on Family and local history but does not undertake paid research although free advice is provided that will point people in the right direction for their family history enquiries.
