A collection of Essays in memory of Arthur Brown. Arthur Brown had a distinguished career in academia, first as head of classics at Colchester Royal Grammar School and then as Senior Research Fellow at the Department of History at the University of Essex, retiring in 1999. He was for many years the mainstay of the Centre for Local History at the University. He wrote extensively of Essex rural history, specifically addressing the question of the labouring poor. His final book, Prosperity and Poverty earned him the accolade “Doyen of Essex History” from the eminent agricultural historian Professor Gordon Mingay.

This collection of essays in his memory reflects the debt of gratitude that Essex history owes to Arthur. They have been written to reflect his interest in Essex rural history and of the encouragement that he gave to each of the essayists as colleagues and students. In other words, this book is a harvest of the seeds that he has sown in our minds over the years.
