NEVENDON, or Newendon, is a small parish and straggling village, in a pleasant valley, 4½ miles South East by East of Billericay, containing 216 souls; and 974 acres of land.
Before the Conquest, it was held by three proprietors, and it afterwards passed to the Mareschall, Fitz-Lewis, Berdeford, Blackmore, Bavin, and Eachus families. It is in two manors, called Nevendon, or Bromfords Hall and Frerne, or Fryerne, and belongs to various owners.
The Church (St. Peter,) is a small ancient structure; and the rectory, valued in K.B. at £11.13s.4d., and in 1831 at £225, is in the patronage of the Rev. V. Edwards, and incumbency of the Rev. L.T. Edwards, M.A., who has a good residence.
