Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Rodings (or Roothings) are a group of villages in Essex, England, the largest group in the country to bear a common name. They are believed to be the remnants of a single Anglo-Saxon community known as the Hro ingas, led by Hro a, who sailed up the River Thames and along a tributary in the sixth century and settled in the area. This was one of the sub-kingdoms that were absorbed into the Kingdom of Essex. The River Roding and the villages derived their name from Hroda. The typical pronunciation of the name is "Roadings." The Rodings formed a single land unit that was investigated by Stephen Basset.
