The Essex Review to be Digitised and Published Online


The Essex Review: An Illustrated Quarterly Record Of Everything Of Permanent Interest In The County ran for 258 issues, 66 volumes from 1892 to 1957.  The title is now owned by the Essex Society for Archaeology and History as is its successor, currently in publication, called ‘Essex Journal’.

Andrew Smith, Honorary Archivist, writes, “The Essex Review has never before been published online but will appear for the first time on the ESAH website during 2019/20.  The aim is to provide in searchable pdf format as many issues as possible.  Also published online will be the original indexes, the text of which can be found from Internet search engines.”

Adrian Corder-Birch adds:

“There are three general indices to the Essex Review as follows:

1.    Vol. 1 (1892) to the end of Vol. XXXVI (1927), edited and published by Benham in 1930 – original copies are very scarce, but there was one in the Local Studies Section of Colchester Central Library.
2.    Vol. XXXVII (1928) to Vol. LXI (1952) – compiled by Kenneth Walker and published by Benham in 1953. 
3.    Vol. LXII (1953) to Vol. LXV (1957) – compiled by Kenneth Walker and printed in April 1967.

Andrew adds: “In sorting copies for digitisation I came across an advertisement regarding the pending publication of the ‘New General Index 1928-1950’. In June 1950 it was indicated that work would proceed subject to there being sufficient subscribers.  The cost of each copy would be ten guineas (£10.50)”.

Synopsis:

Two volumes of Essex church photographs and postcards dating from c1870 to c1910, are important because many of the earlier photographs pre-date respective church restorations, and could be a unique record.

Initially the collection was thought to have been compiled latterly by John Edward Knight Cutts[1] (1847-1938) (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._E._K._Cutts ), member of the Essex Archaeological Society from 1883, and church architect (see http://archiseek.com/tag/j-e-k-cutts/ ) whose name is and date is credited to later photographs in the collection.  According to The Buildings of England: Essex by Pevsner / Bettley (2007) J.E.K. Cutts was architect of the now demolished (1997) St Augustine’s Church, Lower Dovercourt, 1883-84, and the Arts Centre, formerly the Great Burstead Board School, in Billericay, 1877-78.  All Saints, Dovercourt, restored 1897-98; St Paul Church, Elmstead Market, now a house, built 1908; and, St Mary, Little Oakley, now a house, restored 1895-1902 are all the work of J.E.K. & J.P. Cutts.

It was tempting to think that the work was begun by Edward Cutts.  Having compared the pencil labelling to the handwriting in the EAS Minute Book during the time Cutts served as Secretary, it is clear that the labelling is not his work.  Equally there are errors in labelling: South Benfleet should be North Benfleet, Coopersale should read Theydon Garnon, Stock should read Laindon, Blackmore End should read Stisted, the omissions of East Mersea, Stondon Massey and Chigwell.  Warley is, in fact, Great Warley not Little Warley, a church demolished in the 1950s.  The photograph labelled “Litt. Oakley ?” is clearly not Little Oakley but Ugley[2], and is compelling because Cutts was its restorer.  On the same page a corrected entry from Great to Little Oakley is in fact, from Internet images research, Great Oakley.  There is therefore sufficient evidence to determine that the volumes did not belong to the Cutts family.

The various sizes of photographs, as well as the revelation that copies appear elsewhere, suggest that the mystery compiler was not the photographer but acquired copies probably from perhaps other gentlemen members of the Society, sharing the same taste and concern to record changes in church buildings.  The contents list below gives sizes for some of the photographs, which may indicate the same photographer or equipment employed.

“THERE is no need to stress the importance to the ecclesiologist of photographs and reliable drawings of churches before they were subjected to nineteenth-century reparation.” (Benton, TEAS n.s. xxiv).  Benton makes reference to the Chancellor collection of photographs in the Society’s collection, now at the Essex Record Office.

A further important collection of Essex prints, exquisite sketches, photographs and newspaper cuttings in the name of Probert (ERO A13366) was deposited by the Society at the Essex Record Office in 2012.

The collections of photographs may be supported by contemporary narrative: Suckling (1846), Buckler (1856), Chancellor (as published in the Transactions of the Society, and Essex Review), and manuscript notes by King (1856-93) and C. F. D. Sperling.


Footnotes are provided giving additional information relating to the image.  Endnotes are given where there has been correspondence with individual members or members of the public or local history groups.
