The living is a vicarage, rated in the king's books at £10, and in the peculiar jurisdiction and patronage of the Dean and Chapter of St. Paul's, London. The church is dedicated to St. Andrew. The Chelmer navigation has much improved the trade of this place, by means of a canal which passes through the parish, and separates it from Northey island, on the Blackwater river; its buildings have likewise considerably increased in number; The bridge was erected by Henry VI, A causeway was constructed between Heybridge and Maldon before the time of Edward II."
