I started this page while trying to compile a timeline of historical events. Whereas I could find much information about later years, more recent, the history from earlier times was pretty sketchy.
This is not to say that there was nothing going on in the region, quite the contrary. Essex and North Essex/Suffolk was an important region both in pre and post conquest eras. Prior to Conquest the area was known in history as seen as sites as Sutton Hoo and before that the Romans. After William the Conqueror the land was a "much prized" asset that was past around as a Royal Favour.
My use of the word "Perspective"
I am using the word perspective in the sense: a particular attitude towards or way of regarding something; a point of view. and a true understanding of the relative importance of things; a sense of proportion.
