“ALTHORNE, a parish in the hundred of DENGIE, county of ESSEX, 4 miles (N. W.) from Burnham, containing 352 inhabitants. The living is a vicarage, united to the rectory of Creeksea in 1811, in the archdeaconry of Essex, and diocese of London, rated in the king's books at £14, and endowed with £200 private benefaction, and £200 royal bounty. The church is dedicated to St. Andrew. The estuary of the river Crouch is in this parish, in which there are very strong embankments, which are about nine feet high, intended to protect the low lands from inundation, constructed by labourers from Holland, whose descendants are still resident here.” [From Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England  (1831) - copyright Mel Lockie 2016]
