Henry III consumed over 1900 deer from the Forest during his reign from 1216 – 1272.

STEP BACK IN TIME

It all started in the 1130s

When we think of forests now, we think of a large, wooded area but when Hainault first became a Forest we are thinking way back in the 1130s. Forest was a medieval term to denote an area of land dedicated to royal hunting. That meant that anyone living in what was “The Forest of Essex” lived under forest law and the “rights of forest”, commonly known as the right of vert and venison, belonged to the Crown.

Most of Essex lived under forest law, and these laws defined the lives of people in the towns and villages. Hunting weapons were illegal, most dogs were banned and those that were permitted as guard dogs for livestock had to have their claws removed.

However, Forests were so important for fuel, food and industry that a Charter of the Forests was written as a companion document to the Magna Carter. This Charter allowed freemen access to some rights in the forest to collect resources for themselves and essentially stood as the law of the land for 700 years.

This charter allowed commoners access to certain rights in the Forests that could not be removed, such as the right to feed your animals amongst the trees.

For a long time, Barking Abbey was the most important building in the forest and was home to royals but during the dissolution of the monasteries the Crown retained both the rights of the soil and the forest. The forest became better known as the King’s Wood.
