List of History Resources for Local Researchers

A Work in Progress: updated 1 April 2017

Pat Marsden

This list was compiled in order to provide a resource for local researchers.  It comprises: useful online links; a list of key books about Wivenhoe or books which include information about Wivenhoe; smaller local books and pamphlets about Wivenhoe; online articles; more general books and media relating to Essex; books relating to specific topics –  such as Elizabethan Essex, Marriage and Money, Mills, Smuggling and Maritime, and Witchcraft. There is also a list of: local maps from the sixteenth century onwards; newspapers and journals; family history sites; sources for parish records; Essex Society for Family History material; notes about trade directories, poll books, useful manuals, and other material.

This is intended to be a living list and we hope that local researchers will not only find the list useful but will collaborate by adding new material or making corrections and/or adjustments using the ‘Comments’ feature below which will help to keep the list relevant and up to date.
