Cann Hall  Essex


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

CANN-HALL, a locality adjacent to Epping forest, Essex; ½ a mile N by W of Forest Gate r. station, and 5¼ NE of St. Paul's, London. It has a post office under Leytonstone, London N. E.

The Civil Parish in this area between Stratford and Leytontone was named after the old estate and manor of Cann Hall. The ecclesiastial parish was named after Wanstead Slip, which had been a spur of the parish of Wanstead running south-west to the river Lea ('Wanstead: Introduction', A History of the County of Essex: Vol.6 (1973), pp.317-322;, accessed 5/6/2011). The parish church of St. Augusta was in Ravenstone Road, but both the church and the road were erased in the 1950s following bomb damage in the 1940s ('Leyton: Churches', A History of the County of Essex: Vol. 6 (1973), pp. 214-223;, accessed 5/6/2011).
