This is a bit worrying. I only have a distant uncle born in Colchester
barracks to claim as an Essex connection. My Mum's side came from Dorset
and Scotland, my Dad's Kent, Ireland and Scotland (military chaps,
doncha know) and I was born in East London, but for years I was drawn to
Essex - that's why I moved here. Wot's my Mum not told me??
