Burnham-on-Crouch lies on the River Crouch in the Dengie 100 Peninsula which was an area of marsh and rich farmland. There is evidence of considerable prehistoric activity with neolithic remains and Bronze Age burial sites found in the area. The Creeksea Cliffs area is especially rich in prehistoric history. With the coming of the Iron Age the ‘hill fort’ at Asheldham was established the remains of which can be seen today.
The Romans defeated the Trinovantes tribe who resided in the Dengie 100 and established their capital at nearby Colchester. Romans then colonised the area with the fort at nearby Bradwell-on-Sea and enclosures within Burnham itself. The Romans were followed by the Saxons who farmed the land and built a wooden fish trap in the estuary at Bradwell which amazingly is still visible at low tides today. St Cedd, an Irish Missionary, landed at Bradwell in AD 654 and established the Church of St Peters on the inner wall of the roman fortress. St Peters Chapel is still standing although only the earthworks of the roman fort remain. On 11 August 991 AD a Danish fleet landed at Northey Island to begin the famous battle at Northey Island (to the north of Dengie) Brithnoth who was Earl of East Anglia raised an army which was defeated by the Danish invaders . Brithnoth was killed in the battle and laid to rest in Latchingdon Church.
In 1016 battle again threatened Burnham with Edmund Ironside’s army fighting with the Danish leader Canute at the battle of Ashingdon on the opposite bank of the Crouch. Once again the Danes were victorious pursuing the vanquished King Edmund across the Crouch until he escaped but to no avail as Canute was crowned King of England. Following these battles the Daenningaes tribe occupied the area. In 1086 the Domesday Book listed Burnham as Burnheham. The High Street was widened to allow for a market granted by Royal Charter in 1253 to the Fitzwilliam family who owned the manor. A four day fair was traditionally held in the High Street in Mid September. In medieval times the town continued to expand to take advantage of sea borne trade with the Quay allowing direct access to warehouses. The Industrial revolution saw reclamation of the marshes and much of the marsh was reclaimed for farming rather than summer grazing of sheep. Southminster became the dominant market in the area drawing people from as far afield as Rochford.
Smuggling continued to be a major cottage industry with battles between smugglers and coast guards a regular feature. The hulk of a boat called Kangaroo was moored on the site of the Royal Corinthian yacht Club to house the families of local Coast guards and on the opposite bank of the river Darwin’s ‘Beagle’ served a similar purpose. During the Napoleonic wars Burnham built sea defences with a battery of 24 pounder guns manned by the Sea Fencibles. Contact with the outside world improved in 1800 when a coach route from Burnham to Southminster and Maldon was established which by 1848 had been expanded to Chelmsford.
The next major change was the coming of the railway in 1889 with a branch line from Wickford to Southminster passing through Burnham. Materials for the new railway were brought in on the River on Thames barges ironically utilising waterpower for the new railroad. With a rise in national prosperity Yachting began to be fashionable in the late 1800’s and the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club and London Sailing Clubs opened in 1892 . These clubs led to the development of boat building, sail makers and other allied industries which were to dominate the River front and with the commencement of ‘Burnham Week’ brought Burnham to national importance as a yachting centre.
