"MARGARETTING, a parish in the hundred of CHELMSFORD, county of ESSEX, 1 mile (N. E. by E.) from Ingatestone, containing 479 inhabitants. The living is a discharged vicarage, in the archdeaconry of Essex, and diocese of London, rated in the king's books at £9. 2. C. Phillips, Esq. and others were patrons in 1827. The church, dedicated to St. Margaret, has a wooden belfry surmounted by a spire. The Rev. C. F. Bond, in 1827, left £100 Bank stock towards the support of a Sunday school, which is attended by about fifty children. A house, called Killigrew's farm, is said to have been the frequent resort of Henry VIII.: it seems to have been a place of great security, being surrounded by a moat, which, within memory, was crossed by a draw-bridge, having two watch towers."
