"LAMBOURNE, a parish in the hundred of ONGAR, county of ESSEX, 5 miles (S. by E.) from Epping, containing 729 inhabitants. The living is a rectory, in the archdeaconry of Essex, and diocese of London, rated in the king's books at £14, and in the patronage of the Master and Fellows of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. The church, dedicated to St. Mary and All Saints, contains a monument to the memory of Thomas Winniffe, Bishop of Lincoln in the seventeenth century. Spencer, the warlike Bishop of Norwich, who put down Ket's rebellion, lived here; the square intrenchment called Bishop's Moat, each side of which extends two hundred yards, encompassed his residence, and still remains."
