1873 Returns of Owners of Land (see www.archivecdbooks.org )
shows no Derby or Lord Derby having land in Essex at that time.

Does anyone on the list know if Lord Derby owned any estates or land in Essex. I have looked on the Historical Manuscripts web site, and found a list of estates owned by the Stanley family, and there is mention of South Weald.
My Grandmother, Florence BRITTON told my mother that she once was employed by Lord Derby. So far I have not been able to confirm that this was fact. She was born in Brentwood, so it might be possible that she was employed locally in service. Any help appreciated, as I have been unable to find her on the 1901 census.
