Milton, Essex

Historical Description

Milton, a hamlet in Prittlewell parish, Essex, close to Southend. It was anciently a separate parish, but ceased to be so in consequence of part of it being swallowed up by the sea. It is said that the ruins of its church could be seen at low water about the close of the 18th century.
