General note

Halstead is a town located in Essex County in England, northeast of London. Its name is derived from heald, the Old English word for sloping hillside, and stede, the Old English word for a place of shelter. Halstead, a civil parish, is home to St. Andrews Church, built in the 13th century, which survives today, and around which the town developed. On his fundraising tour of England with Nathaniel Whitaker, Occom preached and lectured in Halstead in 1767.
