Family History

Marshland has operated a family history information service since 1998 for Essex generally but specifically for the Essex villages of the Dengie Hundred (See below)

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.

For data protection reasons data is not held on people who are reasonably believed to be dead or who were born less than 100 years ago.

Marshland maintains a large local website with considerable amounts of local and family history information for the villages of the Dengie Hundred. Click here to visit Grandmas Essex website.
