MASHBURY, a small parish, 5½ miles North West of Chelmsford, has only 85 souls and 821 acres of land. T. W. Bramston, Esq., is lord of the manor, which was held by Uluric at the Conquest, and afterwards by the Mandeville, Fitz-Piers, Plantagenet, Lukin, and Petre families. Lord Rayleigh has a small estate here, and part of the parish is copyhold, subject to certain fines.
The Church is a small tiled building, with a wooden belfry and two bells, and the living is a rectory, consolidated with that of Chignal St. James. The glebe here is 16A. 1R., but the Rectory House was pulled down some years ago. The tithes were commuted in 1846 for £217.7s.9d. per annum.
