Carriers operating from the Dengie 100

Carriers were important people as they provided a method for getting small goods from the villages of the Dengie peninsula to Maldon and other markets.

They also provided means of transport for those people not rich enough to own a horse or well enough to walk.

A few carriers also operated from the Dengie villages to Chelmsford.

The below table relates to carriers to and from Chelmsford recorded in the Essex Almanac from 1863 to 1870
