Essex Hall, recorded on maps on the 18th century as Higham Hall and later Higham Hill was renamed in the early 1800's to reflect the tradition that the Earl of Essex, Queen Elizabeth's favourite, had been given this house by his royal mistress, who visited on her way to royal sport in Epping Forrest.
For thirty years in the early 1800's Essex Hall became famous as an Academy for the Sons of Gentleman, run by Rev. Eliezer Cogan, whose most famous pupil was Benjamin Disraeli.
The house was demolished in 1933; 17th century panelling and an overmantel were rescued and are now housed in Vestry House Museum, Walthamstow, London.
