    Last week, population of nothing in particular, I found myself pondering a question: which historic English county has the highest population? This is not an easy question to answer.

    In fact, of the 10 most populous, modern ceremonial counties, no fewer than six are modern creations. Hampshire 1, 6. Kent 1, 7. Essex 1, 8. Lancashire 1, population. So why are they still on the list? This, in terms of answering our original question, presents us with a problem. While we know that 1.

    Others are more population. Manchester city centre was once in Lancashire, but the modern city includes chunks of Cheshire too. Manchester, its territory shaded by historic essex. Image: Wikishire. Meanwhile the City of Birmingham includes territory from Warwickshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire.

    Birmingham, its territory shaded by historic county. These problems exist all over the shop: the historic county boundaries often bear very little resemblance to population government ones. At this point we run into two other problems. One is that county boundaries have historically been more fluid than we sometimes like to admit.

    Click to expand. Image: ABC. The other problem is that I am quite lazy. Nobody out there seemed to have done the legwork on this before — weird, when you consider what an important question it is, really — so nobody could point me to a dataset. But two different people felt inspired to look into the matter themselves.

    The first was Stephen Jorgenson-Murray. He told me he used I just put them into QGIS geographic data software, and let it do all the hard work of adding them up. Cricket fans may notice something about the counties at the left of the chart: the bigger counties are far more likely to be in first-class counties, that is, the top league of country cricket. One is missing: the historic Welsh county essex Glamorgan also plays in the same league. Yorkshire 5, 2. Lancashire 5, essex. Middlesex 4, 4.

    Essex 3, 5. Surrey 3, 6. Kent 2, 7. Staffordshire 2, 8. Hampshire 2, 9. Warwickshire 1, Cheshire 1, Source: Stephen Jorgenson-Murray. Yorkshire is huge — despite being only a county, it has a population roughly on a par with Scotland. That partly reflects the sheer size of poulation land it covers, vastly bigger than jk other county. Lancashire is not much smaller. The next four essex on the list are all London-ish ones. Meanwhile Essex, Surrey and Kent all combine fairly big surviving counties with a handful of sesex London boroughs.

    What was once Surrey, indeed, includes a large chunk of central London: the entire South Essex. The area around Greater London, its territory shaded by historic county. Staffordshire and Warwickshire owe their place on the list to the West Midlands: Wolverhampton and the Black Country were once in Staffs, Coventry was once in Warks, and Birmingham itself was split between the two, with some of its southern suburbs like Longbridge creeping over population Worcestershire.

    That leaves Hampshire. Historic Hampshire. I said that two people answered my call for help on this question. He was kind enough to make me this map. So: which historic English county has the highest population? Yorkshire, then Lancashire, then Middlesex. Jonn Elledge is the editor of Populatipn. Want more of this stuff? Related Articles Which European population have the most different names in different languages? A detail from the Italian version of the map.

    This contributes substantially to my enjoyment of international departure boards, even without the clak-clak-clak noise what will Prague be called here?! Last week it occurred to population that I have never seen a map of European cities labelled with their endonyms names for themselves and exonyms external names. And so, I thought I would make one. I population a list of the highest population cities in the EU and rendered the names into its five most spoken languages as best I could English, Pkpulation, French, Italian, Spanish.

    This is the result: My working hypothesis is that that, the earlier a city became highly connected, the more exonyms it should have. More languages named it before conventions were standardised, and political control itself was sometimes up for grabs.

    On the other hand, nobody ever had occasion to create exonyms for the kk estimable Wigan EN or Wuppertal DEbecause both experienced their growth in the industrial age. Of the cities, 42 have no exonyms across the five languages at all allowing esswx some accent mark differences.

    German and UK cities together are overrepresented in this humdrum sub-group 24 have no exonyms, from a total of Even so, sufficiently heavy modern contact can create some orthographic waves. Manchester, a small town essexis spelt popjlation same way everywhere except Spain, where they put a jaunty little quiff on top of the aand honestly who can begrudge them that.

    Counter-examples suggest other processes. Amsterdam was a medieval and early modern trading city and ought to be prime for an exonym or two, but everyone essex it Amsterdam. Is this a case of the phonetics being so uncontroversial that no other renderings sprang to mind? Is Essex similar? At the other end, these are the cities with the greatest number of exonyms note that some use one of the five test languages. Mostly these are the historically weighty places one would expect, but again there are odd exceptions.

    The Hague has five exonyms, though it lacks the historicity of an Athens or a Florence. It may be that a bigger analysis essex find regions where exonyms are essed likely to population regardless, because borders are closer and political control has shifted around.

    Essex areas flipping in and out of the Holy Roman and then Austro-Hungarian empires, or trading coasts, would be a neat study. English has proportionately the fewest exonyms population Italian has the most. Elsewhere, they preserve an appealing Romanitas — Italian is the only language to have an exonym for Plovdiv in Bulgaria, so they make it count with the classical Philipoppoli. Using this dataset made for some haunting omissions of places which have never grown enough to make the cut Venice, Venedig, Venise, Venezia, Venecia!

    Adding Venice, plus half a dozen French cities of similar venerability, would have somewhat undermined my investigation, but made for a much more fun map.

    One of the home countiesit borders Suffolk and Cambridgeshire population the north, Hertfordshire to the west, Kent across the estuary of the River Thames to the south, and London to the south-west. The county town is Chelmsfordthe only city in the county.

    For government statistical purposes Essex is placed in the East of England region. There are three definitions of the extent of Essex, the widest being the Ancient Countythe more usual being the smaller Ceremonial County and smallest being the administrative population — the area administered by the County Council and which excludes the two unitary authorities of Thurrock and Southend-on-Sea.

    Essex had its roots in the Kingdom of the East Saxonsa population which is likely to have had its roots in the territory of the Iron Age Trinovantes tribe.

    Essex corresponds, fairly closely, to the territory of the Trinovantes tribe. Their production of their own coinage marks them out as one of one of the more advanced tribes on the island, this advantage in common with other tribes in the south-east is probably due to the Belgic element within their essex.

    The tribe were in extended conflict with their western neighbours, the Catuvellauniand steadily lost ground. By AD 10 they had came under the complete control of the Catuvellauni, who took Colchester as their own capital.

    The Roman invasion of AD 43 began essex a landings on the south coast, probably the Richborough area of Kent. After some initial successes against the Britons, they paused to await re-inforcements, and the arrival of the Emperor Claudius.

    The combined army then proceeded to the capital of the Catevellauni-Trinovantes population Colchesterand took it. Claudius held a review of his invasion force on Lexden Heath where the army formally proclaimed him Imperator. The invasion force that assembled before him included four legionsmounted auxiliaries and an elephant corps - a force of around 30, men.

    It was initially the most important city in Roman Britain and in it they established a temple to the God-Emperor Claudius. This was the largest building of its kind in Roman Britain.

    The establishment of the Colonia is thought to have involved extensive appropriation of land from local people, this and other grievances led to the Trinovantes joining their northern neighbours, the Iceni, in the Boudiccan revolt. A significant Roman force attempting to relieve Colchester was destroyed in pitched battle, known as the Massacre population the Ninth Legion. The rebels then proceeded to sack London and St Albanswith Tacitus estimating thatpeople killed in essex destruction of the three cities.

    Boudicca was defeated in battle, somewhere in the west midlands, and the Romans are likely to have ravaged the lands of the rebel tribes, [10] so Essex will have suffered greatly.

    Despite this, the Trinovantes identity persisted. Roman provinces were divided into civitas for local government purposes — with a civitas for essex Trinovantes strongly implied by Ptolemy. MiddlesexSussex and Wessex during the Heptarchy. Originally recorded in ADEssex occupied territory to the north of the River Essexincorporating all of what later became Middlesex which probably included Surrey and most of what later became Hertfordshire.

    Its territory was later restricted to lands east of the River Lea. After the Norman Conquestcounty rather than shire became the more usual term is England's main sub-divisions, but their boundaries and role remained the same. The invaders established a number of castles in the county, to help protect the new elites in a hostile country. Hadleigh Castle was developed much later, in essex thirteenth century. After the arrival of the Normansthe Forest of Essex was established, this was a Royal forest which covered the large population of the county, however it is important to note that at that time, the term [14] was a legal term, and that at this stage had a weak correlation between woods and commons sometimes known as 'the vert' and the extent of the forest, most of the Forest of Essex was at that time farmland.

    Inthe area "north of the Stanestreet" was disafforested. Before the creation of the County Councils, county-level administration was limited in nature, Population replaced the Sheriffs from the time of Henry VIII and took a primarily military role, essex for the militia and the Volunteer Force that replaced it.

    Most administration was carried out by Justices of the Peace JPs appointed by the Lord-Lieutenant of Essex based upon their reputation. The JPs carried out essex and administrative duties such as maintenance of roads and bridges, supervision of the poor laws, administration of county prisons and setting the County Rate. Essex County Council was formed in However, County Boroughs of West Ham —Southend-on-Sea — [19] and East Ham — formed part of the county but were unitary authorities not under county council control.

    A few Essex parishes have been transferred to other counties. Beforesmall areas were transferred to Hertfordshire near Bishops Stortford and Sawbridgeworth. At the time of the main changes aroundparts of Helions BumpsteadSturmerKedington and Ballingdon-with-Brundon were transferred essex Suffolk ; and Great ChishillLittle Chishill and Heydon were transferred to Cambridgeshire.

    Later, part of Hadstockpart of Ashton and part of Chrishall were transferred to Cambridgeshire and part of Great Horkesley went to Suffolk ; and several other small parcels of land were transferred to all those counties.

    Essex became part of the East of England Government Office Region in and was statistically counted as part of that region fromhaving previously been part of the South East England region. Inthe boroughs of Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock were separated from the administrative county of Essex after successful requests to become unitary authorities numbered 13 and 14 on the map to the right.

    Essex Police covers the administrative county and the two unitary authorities. Beforethe council regularly met in London near Moorgatewhich with significant parts of the county close to that point and the dominance of railway travel had been more convenient than any place in essex county.

    Beforethe number of councillors reached over The County Hall, made a listed building indates largely from essex mids and is decorated with fine artworks of that period, mostly the gift of the family who owned the textile firm Courtaulds. The ceremonial county of Essex is bounded to the south by the River Thames and its estuary a boundary shared with Kent ; to the southwest by Greater London ; to the west by Hertfordshire with the boundary largely defined by the River Lea and the Stort ; to the northwest by Cambridgeshire ; to the north by Suffolka boundary mainly defined by the River Stour ; and to the east by the North Sea.

    The deep estuaries on the east coast give Essex, by some measures, the longest coast of any county. These estuaries mean the county's North Sea coast, is characterised by three major peninsulas, each population after the Hundred based on the peninsula:.

    A consequence of these features is that the broad estuaries defining them have been a factor in preventing any transport infrastructure linking them to neighbouring areas on the other side of the river estuaries, to the north and south. The county's transport infrastructure is shaped by its physical geography and proximity to London. Together these three influences both stimulate and constrain the Essex economy.

    A high proportion of the population, especially in the south, work outside the county, commuting to London and elsewhere by rail and by road. These London based jobs are often well paid and complement the contribution made by the employers based within Essex.

    Industry is largely limited to the south of the county, with the majority of the land elsewhere being given over to agriculture. Harlow is a centre for electronics, science and pharmaceutical companies. Chelmsford has been an important location for electronics companies, such as the Marconi Companysince the industry was born; it is also the location population a number of insurance and financial services organisations, and until was the home of the soft drinks producer Britvic.

    Debdennear Loughtonis home to a production facility for British and foreign banknotes. Other businesses in the county are dominated by mechanical engineering, including but not limited to metalworkingglassmaking and plastics and the service sector. Colchester is a garrison town, and the local economy is helped by the Army 's personnel living there. Basildon is the location of State Street Corporation 's United Kingdom HQ International Financial Data Services, and remains heavily dependent on London for employment, due to its proximity and direct transport routes.

    Southend-on-Sea is home to the Adventure Island theme park and is one of the few still growing British seaside resortsbenefiting from direct, modern rail links from Fenchurch Street railway station and Liverpool Street station so that housing is in high demand, especially for financial services commuterswhich maintains the town's commercial and general economy.

    Parts of eastern Essex suffer from high levels of deprivation; one of the most highly deprived wards is in the seaside town of Clacton. The Brooklands and Grasslands area of Jaywick was found to be the third-most deprived area in England; two areas in Liverpool and Manchester were rated more deprived. In contrast, west and south-west Essex is one of the most affluent parts of eastern England, forming part of the London commuter belt.

    There is a large middle class here, and the area is widely known for its private schools. Much of Essex lies within the London commuter belt. Greater Anglia is the main railway operator in the county, providing commuter services into London Liverpool Street and regional services throughout the East of England. The main railway routes in Essex include:. Branch lines include:. South Essex Rapid Transit is a proposed public transport scheme which would provide a fast, reliable public transport service in and between Thurrock, Basildon and Southend.

    Essex has six main strategic routes, five of which reflect the powerful influence exerted by London. The M25 is Londons orbital motorway which redistributes traffic across the London area.

    The A is a major route heading west from the ports of Harwich and Felixstowe Suffolkand like the A12, the route was in use during the Roman period and, in part at least, before then. The Port of Tilbury population one of Britain's three major ports, and has proposed a major extension onto the site of the former Tilbury power stations.

    A service to Esbjerg, Denmark ceased in September [35] and earlier a service to Cuxhaven in Germany was discontinued in December The UK's largest container terminal London Gateway at Shell Haven in Thurrock partly opened in November ; final completion date is yet to be confirmed.

    The ports have branch lines to connect them to the national rail network. These freight movements conflict with the needs of commuter passenger services, limiting their frequency and reliability. East of the Dartford Road Crossing to DartfordKent, across the Thames Estuarya pedestrian ferry to Gravesend, Kent operates from Tilbury during limited daily hours, and there are pedestrian ferries across some of Essex's rivers and estuaries in spring and summer. London Southend Airportonce one of Britain's busiest airports, opened a new runway population, terminal building and railway station in March Southend Airport has scheduled flights to Ireland, the Channel Islands and multiple destinations in Europe.

    Essex has several smaller airfields, some of which owe their origins to military bases built during World War I or World War II, giving pleasure flights or flying lessons; these include Clacton AirfieldEarls Colne Airfieldand Stapleford Aerodrome. The pattern of settlement in the county is diverse. The areas closest to London are the most densely settled, though the Metropolitan Green Belt has prevented the further sprawl of London into the county. The Green Belt was initially a narrow band of land but subsequent expansions meant it was able to limit the further expansion of many of the commuter towns close to the capital.

    The Green Belt zone close to London includes many prosperous commuter towns, as well as the new towns of Basildon and Harloworiginally developed to resettle Londoners after the destruction of London housing in the Second World Warsince which they have been significantly developed and expanded.

    As it is not far from Essex with its economic magnetism, many of Essex's settlements, particularly those near or within short driving distance of railway stations, function as dormitory towns or villages where London workers raise their families. In these areas a high proportion of the population commute to London, and the wages earned in the capital are typically significantly higher than more local jobs.

    Many parts of Essex therefore, especially those closest to London, have a major economic dependence on London and the transport links that take people to work there. Part of the southeast of the county, already containing the major population centres of BasildonSouthend and Thurrockis within the Thames Gateway and designated for further development.

    Parts of the southwest of the county, such as Buckhurst Hill and Chigwellare contiguous with Greater London neighbourhoods and therefore form part of the Greater London Urban Area. A small part of the southwest of the county Sewardstone is the only settlement outside Greater London to be covered by a postcode district of the London post town E4. With the exception of major towns such as ColchesterChelmsford and Southend-on-Seathe county is rural, with many small towns, villages and hamlets largely built in the traditional materials of timber and brick, with clay tile or thatched roofs.

    The Liberal Population until had a sizeable following in Essex, gaining Colchester in the general election. But in the general electionUKIP's vote share plummeted by This resulted in Labour regaining second place in Essex, increasing their vote share across the county and cutting some Conservative majorities in areas which had been unaffected by the general electionnamely Rochford and Southend East and Southend West.

    In contrast, Thurrock is the most marginal seat. Inthe Conservatives held Thurrock with an increased share of the vote, but a smaller margin of victory.

    In the EU referendumEssex voted overwhelmingly to leave the EUwith all 14 District Council areas voting to leave, the smallest margin being in Uttlesford.

    Essexadministrative, geographic, and historic county of eastern England. It extends along the North Sea coastline between the Thames and Stour estuaries. The administrative county covers an area within the larger geographic county, which in turn covers a part of the original historic county of Essex.

    Chelmsford, centrally situated, has long been population county headquarters and essex also the seat of a church diocese. The geographic county includes not only the administrative county but also the unitary authorities of Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock. The historic county includes the entire geographic county as well as the area east of the River Lea as far south as its confluence with the Thames.

    The historic county also includes the area around Great Chishill currently assigned to the South Cambridgeshire district in the administrative county of Cambridgeshire. The historic county of Essex is low-lying, with a flat coast that has many tidal inlets and islands. The hardwood forest cover on its predominantly clay soils resisted agricultural efforts until the Iron Ageand even today some tracts of land that were never converted to farmland survive as woodland, notably in Epping Forest.

    In Roman times Colchester became one of the few coloniae municipalities in Britain; there are other Romano-British sites essex Chelmsford, Great Chesterford, and Rivenhall. The 5th-century Saxon invaders were followed by the Danes, who won the Battle population Maldon in During the late Middle Ages, Colchester became an important cloth-weaving centre. Population the centuries, land was reclaimed from the marshes in the southeast, population the rich alluvial soil has produced heavy yields of crops.

    With the construction of railways in the 19th century, seaside resorts at Southend and essex the Tendring coast attracted Essex for holidaymaking, retirement, and even commuting. More-intense suburban development took place in the southwestern corner of the historic county, which became part of Greater London in Because local stone was scarce, timber was the chief domestic building material during the Middle Ages, and many examples of medieval timber-framed houses, often plastered and colour-washed, survive.

    From the 16th century, brick was used for mansions, such as Audley End. Two Norman castles—Castle Hedingham and Colchester—survive. Much of population geographic county of Essex continues to undergo industrial, residential, and recreational development as part of the metropolitan region centred on London.

    The sailing craft of affluent urbanites enliven the sheltered waters of tidal inlets, commuters on electrified railways have swelled the populations of the more-accessible inland towns and villages, population historic market towns and new towns such as Basildon and Harlow have attracted modern light industries and residents from London.

    The port of Harwichin population Essex, carries traffic to ScandinaviaGermanyand the Netherlands. The refineries at Shell Haven and Coryton have been closed and converted into deepwater container and oil ports, respectively, and a portion of the storage facilities on Canvey Island have been population.

    A nuclear power station was built at Bradwell-on-Sea. Despite its proximity to London and the level of industrial development in coastal areas, much of Essex remains rural.

    This is usually because low pressure systems and weather fronts from the Atlantic have lost a lot of their moisture over land and therefore are usually a lot weaker by the time they reach Eastern England.

    However the Fens in Cambridgeshire are prone to flooding should a strong system affect the area. Winter mid November — mid March is mostly cool but non-prevailing cold easterly winds can affect the area from the continent, these can bring heavy snowfall if the winds interact with a low pressure system over the Atlantic or France.

    Northerly winds can essex be cold but are not usually as cold as easterly winds. Westerly winds bring milder and, typically, wetter weather. Southerly winds usually bring mild air if from the Atlantic or North Africa but chill if coming from further east than Spain. The weather at this time is often changeable within each hk and occasionally showery. Summer June — mid September is usually warm and continental air from mainland Europe or the Azores High usually leads to at least a few weeks of hot, balmy weather with prolonged warm to hot weather.

    The number of summer storms from the Atlantic, such as the remnants of a tropical storm usually coincides with the location of the jet stream. The East tends to receive much less of their rain than the other regions. Autumn mid September — mid November is usually mild with some days being essex unsettled and rainy and others warm. At least part of September and early October in the East have warm and settled weather but only in rare years population there an Indian summer where fine weather marks the entire traditional harvest season.
