Note People with links to Essex can be linked to the project but not necessarily added to the list below.

Historical and Political people

- accommodated by the project Historical Essex which covers the History of Essex and historical/political people. Some of these are also listed in the Famous people category.

Famous or Notable People

Those people of note with connections to the county are listed below. Some of these connections are a little tenuous - counties like to lay claim to people of renown! Please visit Essex - Famous People and add them to the listing there.

Emigrants
