This page is not intended to be in anyway a complete list. It is just a "crib" sheet for me to see what else was going on when I find a date such as the suggested provinance of say the cross-wing of our house (Historic England says C14.) or another date relating to the history of the area.

The Timeline of English history - according to Wikpedia is an interesting approach. Looking at the Wikipedia approach to their timeline I think that my layout is better.

In addition to this timeline I am constructing pages the cover the History of Belchamp Walter by Century.

This page is part of an on-going research project on the history of Belchamp Walter and the manor of Belchamp Walter. If you have found it making a web search looking for geneological or other information on the village then please bookmark this page and return often as I am likely to make regular updates. If you delve deeper into this website you will find many other pages similar to this one.
