Primary tabs

"MINSTER (SOUTH), a parish in the hundred of DENGIE, county of ESSEX, 3 miles (N. by E.) from Burnham, containing 1445 inhabitants. The living is a vicarage, in the archdeaconry of Essex, and diocese of London, rated in the king's books at £21, and in the patronage of the Governors of the Charter-house, London. The church, dedicated to St. Leonard, is a cruciform structure, and has lately received an addition of three hundred and sixty sittings, of which two hundred and fifty are free, the Incorporated Society for the enlargement of churches and chapels having granted £400 towards defraying the expense. There are slight remains of a chapel at Southminster hall. The Independents have a place of worship here. A National school was established by the late vicar. The parish is bounded on the south-east by Crouch river, and on the east by the North sea." [From Samuel Lewis A Topographical Dictionary of England (1831) - copyright Mel Lockie 2016]
