Black Notley  Essex


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

NOTLEY (Black), a village and a parish in Braintree district, Essex. The village stands near the river Brain, 1 mile N N W of Bulford r. station, and 1¾ S by E of Braintree. The parish contains also the hamlet of Row-Green; and its post town is Braintree. Acres, 1, 936. Real property, £3, 617. ...

Pop. in 1851, 527; in 1861, 489. Houses, 124. The decrease of pop. was caused partly by insufficient cottage accommodation, and partly by removal of silk-mill workers to the parish of Brain-tree. The property is subdivided. Many antiquities, including copper, brass, and glazed vessels, have beenfound. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Rochester. Value, £497.* Patron, St. John's College, Cambridge. The church is good, and has a wooden spire. There are a school with £10 a year from endowment, and charities £50. Bishop Bedell and the naturalist John Ray were natives.
