In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Frinton on Sea like this:
FRINTON, a parish in Tendring district, Essex; on the coast, 4¼ miles SW of the Naze, 9 SSE of Wrabness r. station, and 12½ SE of Manningtree. Post town, Walton-on-the-Naze, under Colchester. Acres, 820; of which 110 are water. Real property, £660. Pop., 29. Houses, 6. The property is divided among a few. ...
The sea has washed away a great part of the parish, and is still making encroachment. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Rochester. Value, £162. Patron, S. Lushington, Esq. Part of the church fell in 1703; and the rest of it was recently in disrepair. Captain Bushell, the wreck-searcher, and Cornelius de Tulbury, "who could poison with impunity, " were residents.
