Latton  Essex


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Latton like this:

LATTON, a parish, with a village, in Epping district, Essex; on the river Stort and the Eastern Counties railway, at the boundary with Herts, 1 mile E by S of Burnt-Mill r. station, and 1½ SW of Harlow. Post-town. Harlow. Acres, 1,605. Real property, £3,078. Pop., 196. Houses, 45. ...

The property is divided among a few. An Augustinian priory was founded here before 1276; was given, at the dissolution, to Sir Henry Parker; and has left some remains, in decorated English architecture, now used as a barn. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Rochester. Value, £480.* Patron, L. Arkwright, Esq. The church is good, has a tower, and contains three old brasses.
