General note:

Castle Hedingham is a village located in Essex County in southeast England. Although there is evidence that it was settled much earlier, the village's recorded history begins when it was given to Aubrey de Vere, one of William the Conqueror’s lords, in the 11th century. In 1140, Aubrey de Vere III built Hedingham Castle, of which the keep remains and is still a primary site in the village today. On his fundraising tour of England with Nathaniel Whitaker, Occom preached and lectured in Castle Hedingham in 1767.
