"Population 548. One Daily School, wherein about 100 or 110 children of both sexes are instructed at the expense of their parents. About the year 1827, the room in which this School is held was built by a respectable Quaker with a charitable view of giving a cheap education to the children of the united parishes of Danbury, Woodham Walter, and Little Baddow; for which purpose he purchased a piece of ground in the latter as being central to the other two parishes. See also Boreham Parish "
