Vange tends to get linked with Pitsea but it is an old parish in its own right.


We first find a mention of it back in 963 when King Edgar sold Fengge to Thegn Ingeram who, the same year, sold Fenge to Dunstan, Archbishop of Christ Church and Canterbury.


It was spelt 'Phenge' in the Domesday Book and in the Saxon language 'Van' meant a 'fen' or 'marsh'.  The suffix 'ge' meant 'district'.
