General note

Essex is a county located in southeast England, northeast of England’s capital, London, adjacent to the Thames River and the North Sea, and bordered by Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, and Kent Counties. The name Essex is derived from the Old English word for the East Saxons. On his fundraising tour of England with Nathaniel Whitaker, Occom preached and lectured in several towns in 1767 located in Essex County, including Castle Hedingham, Halstead, Braintree, Weathersfield, Dunmow and Thaxted.
