The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry of Essex, and diocese of London, endowed with £200 private benefaction, £600 royal bounty, and £800 parliamentary grant. James H. Leigh, Esq. was patron in 1815. A new chapel is about to be erected by the parliamentary commissioners. There are places of worship for Baptists and Wesleyan Methodists.
