Finchingfield is a village in the Braintree district in north-west Essex, England, a primarily rural area. It is approximately 6mi from Thaxted, further from the larger towns of Saffron Walden and Braintree.Nearby villages include Great Bardfield, Great Sampford, and Wethersfield.HistoryThere has been a settlement in Finchingfield since historical records of the area began. There also is archaeological evidence for a Roman villa 400 metres south-south-west of the village church. Finchingfield was recorded in the Domesday Book as Phincingfelda. The village was an official stop for horse-drawn coaches travelling from London to Norwich.Spains Hall, the nearby Elizabethan country house, was built in the early fifteenth century. The hall is named after Hervey de Ispania, who held the manor at the time of the 1086 Domesday Book. Since then, the land has been owned by three families: the de Ispania family, the Kempe family, who acquired it when Margery de Ispania married Nicholas Kempe in the early fifteenth century, and the Ruggles family (later the Ruggles-Brise family who reside there today). The hall was the hub of the community, those families owning much of the village, and employing most of the villagers.CommunityFinchingfield and Cornish Hall End combined had a population of 1,471 at the United Kingdom Census 2011.
