"BARKING SIDE is a pleasant village, on the borders of Hainault Forest; 3 miles north from Barking, 2 south from Chigwell Row; 4 north from Barking, and 10 from London. The ecclesiastical district - constituted on the 11th February, 1841 - contained, in 1851, 1,278 inhabitants, chiefly employed in agriculture. The church, or chapel of ease, dedicated to the Trinity, is in the Saxon style, and the living is a perpetual curacy, value £110, in the diocese of London, and gift of the vicar of Great Ilford, of which the Rev. John Budgen, M.A., is incumbent. There is a chapel for Independents, and a National School for boys and girls." [From the Post Office Directory of Essex, Herts, Kent ... , 1855]
