"STURMER, a parish in the hundred of HINCKFORD, county of ESSEX, 6 miles (W. by S.) from Clare, containing 311 inhabitants. The living is a rectory, in the jurisdiction of the Commissary of Essex and Herts, concurrently with the Consistorial Court of the Bishop of London, rated in the king's books at £8. 10., and in the patronage of the Duke of Rutland. Sturmer, though now an obscure place, was formerly of considerable importance: it extended into the counties of Suffolk and Cambridge, and also included Haverhill and Kedington, then hamlets, but now distinct parishes, each exceeding it both in extent and population."
