White's Directory of Essex 1848

HENNY (LITTLE) is a small churchless parish, adjoining Great Henny, and has only 65 souls and 410 acres of land, nearly all the property of Nathiel Clarke Barnardiston, Esq., and Earl Howe. The former is lord of the manor, and has a pleasant seat here, called The Ryes, built about 40 years ago, and beautifully situated on a commanding eminence, and surrounded by plantations and richly cultivated ground.

Mr. Barnardiston is also patron of the sinecure rectory, which has 11A. of glebe, and a yearly rent-charge of £90.10. in lieu of tithes, and is now enjoyed by the Rev. Thomas Mills, M.A., who does not reside here.

The Parsonage House is a cottage, and the small church went to decay many years ago, and no vestiges of it are now extant. Since the reign of Elizabeth, this small parish has paid a yearly stipend of £3 to Great Henny, for pews and right of burial. Mrs. Elizabeth Hasell occupies Gentry's Farm.
