History of Chelmsford

History of Chelmsford

The borough of Chelmsford dates back to the middle ages, the site of the ground had actually belonged to the Bishop of London. In 1199, Bishop William obtained a charter from the king ghis mean that the bishop held the right to have a weekly market near the bridge. This had been very exciting as in those days very few shops esisted and if you wished to buy or sell anything you had to go to a market. Once the market was up and running merchants and craftsmen would come to live in Chelmsford. So a town was born.

The railway reached Chelmsford in 1843. Improved transport led to an economic boom in Chelmsford. New industries grew up in the town. Chelmsford became known for its engineering industry and in the late 19th century for an industry making electrical equipment.

In 1888, Chelmsford had been founded and incorporated as a municipial borough part of the ancient Chelmsford hundred of Essex.

Yes I have been watching Chelmsford develop over the past few years and really is one borough oozing with potential. Did you know that Chelmsford was an important staging post on the old Roman road between Londinium (London) and Camulodunum (modern-day Colchester). The cult comedy series Chelmsford 123 followed the life of an exiled Roman governor, Aulus Paulinus, in the town in AD 123.
