White's Directory of Essex 1848

HAVENGORE ISLAND, at the southern angle of the cluster of islands, is of an oval figure, bounded by the sea and the creeks communicating with the river Broomhill. It has only 18 inhabitants, and about 810 acres of land, all extra-parochial, except Sharpness Farm, and a small portion of laud, called Temple Marsh, which are in Little Wakering parish. It is the property of Lady Sparrow, and Mr. James Tabor is the only resident farmer.
