Over the centuries the so-called landed gentry made their mark on Great Baddow, first as Lords of the Manor, or as landowners, tenant farmers, owners of local companies which provided work, or perhaps members of the Church or Parish Council.

One of the earliest of these families was Richard de Badow, who became Chancellor of Cambridge University in 1326.

Other notable people who lived in the village or nearby at some time during their lives were:
John Paschall - read more here
William Luckyn
Mr.William Prior Johnson.
William of Moulsham
James Tabor
Henry Lindsay Archer Houblon
Thomas Mildmay

More details of these and other notables families will be added over time.

Our most recent update in January 2013, relates to the Pease brothers, Robert and John, who lived in the village in the 17th century.
