Rochford was granted a market charter in 1264 by Henry III, and it is where, according to tradition, Anne Boleyn met Henry VIII in Rochford Hall, which was the Boleyn family’s home. This fateful meeting was one of the causes of England becoming Protestant and so causing tensions between those who remained Catholics and those who followed the King. Of course, Anne Boleyn was the mother of Elizabeth I who was certainly a very influential monarch. It is said that the ghost of the headless (and hapless) Anne Boleyn haunts the house and grounds of Rochford Hall.
