Until its abolition in 1937, there was a Laindon parish. In 1931 it covered an area of 2,049 acres and had a population of 4,552. 100 years earlier, in 1831, the population was 412 and the area covered was 4,680 acres. [ [ Vision of Britain] - Laindon parish ( [ historic map] )] Three detachments of the parish were removed in 1880 and 1889.

To the south-west of Laindon, the Dunton Plotlands was an area of small plots of land used as weekend cottages or smallholdings during the mid twentieth century.
