Welcome To The Parish Of Stondon Massey
Where is Stondon Massey?
Stondon Massey is a small rural parish within Brentwood Borough. The population is currently 727.
Why is the village called Stondon Massey?
Stondon means ‘stone hill’, a Saxon settlement was established near to the site of the 12th Century church of St Peter’s & St Paul’s. A low gravel hill was known as a ‘down’.
Hence the name ‘Stondon’.
‘Massey’ is derived from Serlo de Marci, a Norman knight who lived in Ongar.
The main part of the village is now just over a mile to the south of the church probably due to the plague of 1350.
