William Palin

The Reverend William Palin, Stifford's rector between 1834 and 1882, was the first local historian to write solely about the Thurrock area. He published two volumes - "Stifford and its Neighbourhood" in 1871 and "More about Stifford and its Neighbourhood" the following year. Panorama 32 contains a brief biography.
