Fingringhoe Historical Recorders

The Recorders are a group of Fingringhoe residents interested in the history of their village. Since its formation in 1981 the group has been building an archive of material about the people, topography, buildings, activities, industries and events of the village. This includes press cuttings, letters, photographs, posters, trophies, books, maps, drawings and personal accounts that have been donated by villagers over the years.  For earlier history the archive also has photocopies of old documents now in the Essex Records Office in Chelmsford, such as census records and old newspapers.  The archive is stored in Fingringhoe Village Hall.  

In order to make this material more easily accessible to anyone interested in the history of Fingringhoe, the archive has recently been catalogued on computer.  Each of over 6,000 items has been numbered, described briefly and scanned or photographed. This database is searchable to make it easier to find items. These files will continue be updated from time to time to include newly-gathered material. This database record is also now freely available via a digital memory stick which can be loaned from the Recorders (with just a small returnable deposit) to anyone who wishes to review the records.

The recorders are also keen to secure more village records that villagers may have in their personal possession that the Recorders can copy for the archive and store for the benefit of the village.

If you would like to loan a memory stick, have any records that you think may be of interest or might like to join the Recorders please speak to any of the current members (Lyn Rodley, Malcolm and  Judy Kimmance, Ann Bagley, Dave Burnand, Malcolm Hawksby, Gill Williams or Ian Law) or contact the group by email (fingringhoerecorders@gmail.com).
