                 NAMES FROM A BOOK ON BRAINTREE AND BOCKING

    ===========================================================================

    This book is an excellent & very readable history of Braintree and
    Bocking, Essex (nr Chelmsford & Colchester) by the former Deputy Head
    of a Braintree School.  Braintree and Bocking were very large villages
    for their time and were strong in cloth manufacture.

    The book seems to be produced to a high standard and is full of names
    as the author illustrates his topics with extracts from contemporary
    records.  He appears to have drawn heavily on records held in the Essex
    County Archives and probably not elsewhere published.

    There is a copy of the book in the NZ National Library in Wellington.
    I was using it for some personal research and was struck by the wealth
    of names.  It seemed well worth sharing it.

    Some names appear twice.  This can usefully offer more information.
    But some apparent duplicates are often different people.
