Pebmarsh.com is a living magazine for the village of Pebmarsh in Essex. Regularly updated with news, views, articles and a diary of forthcoming events in and around the village. According to the "Place names of Essex", Pebmarsh is derived from Pybba's erx or stubble field, the person Pybba being possibly the same man as gave his name to Pebehole which was in or near Stebbing. The parish of Pebmarsh is traversed by a brook, which after passing through a valley and close to the church, falls into the River Colne near Earls Colne. In several places this brook creates marshy land and it would seem therefore that the word "marsh" might be in some way connected with the origin of the name. The village has many Tudor farms and houses. Until 1845 the parish formed part of the extensive diocese of London.
