Boxted, Essex, England


Notes: Boxted is a village and civil parish in Essex, England. It is located approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) north of Colchester and 24 miles (39 km) northeast of the county town of Chelmsford. The village is in the borough of Colchester and in the parliamentary constituency of North Essex. The village was the site of a series of skirmishes between Parliamentary and Royalist troops in July 1648, known as the Battle of Boxted Heath.

Two historic manors are located in the parish: Boxted Hall and Rivers Hall, which are both mentioned in the Doomsday records. Boxted was split into two settlements, 'Boxted' and 'Boxted Cross', during the plague when non infected villagers moved across the valley from 'Old Boxted' to escape infection. A timber framed cottage called Songers is reputedly the oldest private dwelling in Essex dating back to 1280.

In 1630 the village vicar, George Phillips, and many other Boxted residents emigrated to America as part of the Great Migration. Phillips subsequently founded a church at Watertown on the Charles River in Massachusetts. Other Boxted residents went to Ipswich, Massachusetts.
