The chancel was restored in 1864. The manor is very ancient, and was held by Simon de Furneaux in the reigh of Edward I., but the village now shows little of interest.

Stocking Pelham (5 miles N.E.) is a very small parish on the Essex border. Records of this manor go back to very early times. The little church has no tower but retains fragments of ancient glass in some windows. The rectory has traces of a moat.
