ROOTHING AYTHROP, or Roding Aythorpe, a small village in the vale of the river Roding, 5½ miles South South West of Dunmow, has in its parish 285 souls, and 1361 acres of land.
Charles Livermore, Esq., is lord of the manor of "Aytrop Roding Hall," and the small manor of Keeres belongs to Gobert's Charity. N. Patmore, Esq., owns part of Friar's Grange, and other parts of the parish belong to J.Draper, J.B. Oliver, T.A. Aldham, F.J. Matthews, M.B. Peacock, Mrs. Cranmer, and a few smaller owners. The copyhold fines are arbitrary.
This and the other eight places which have the common name of Roding, or Roothing, are so called from the river Roding, on which they are situated.
The Church (Virgin Mary,) is a small antique fabric, with a wooden turret, containing four bells, and crowned by a small spire.
The rectory, valued in K.B. at £12, and in 1831 at £280, is in the patronage and incumbency of the Rev. Thomas Hubbard, B.A., of Stondon Massey. The parsonage is a small brick building, and the glebe is 20 acres. The tithes were commuted in 1847 for £366.9s.8d. per annum.
