History
In 653 AD, St. Cedd a monk from Lindisfarne was sent to Essex as a missionary by Bishop Finan. Cedd landed at Bradwell - on- Sea, where he founded a minster - a church base for clergy to teach the Christian faith in the surrounding areas or "the parish". Over the next ten years Cedd established four more minsters at Tilbury, Canewdon, Southminster, and Upminster.
The first Church in Upminster was probably made of timber and thatch, as there was no local source of stone. It would have been very small, as the population was sparse; the Doomsday Book records there being 31 working men and their families. Little is known of the parish history until the reign of King John (1199 - 1216) when the Church was rebuilt in stone.
In the early fourteenth century the church was much enlarged with the addition of a north aisle, all that now remains of this is the three bay north arcade. Then little is known until the seventeenth century, when the Archdeacon’s court at Romford ordered the churchwardens to repair the church which had fallen into decay.
1861/2 saw much rebuilding to the church; the chancel, north aisle, St. Mary’s chapel and south porch being practically rebuilt, except perhaps the core of some of the walls, and the south wall of the nave was refaced, or rebuilt.
