Historical Summary

The Rochford Hundred district was frequented by royalty as several noble families owned significant land in the area and lived in their numerous manor houses. Indeed, the mother of Henry V was married at Rochford Hall. The area was heavily wooded, so provided great hunting opportunities for the nobility. It wasn't so good for the peasants, who finally revolted in 1381.
