Could you look at the results of this search and see if the detail of the Index to Death Duty Registers 1796-1903 entry mentions Chelmsford or Great Baddow. TIA.

Thank you, ma'am!
You can get these from Find-A-Will at Very fast service with a digital copy.

Whoops, you were looking at death duties. Not the same thing.
The National Archives reference led me to a free download of the register. Just as well because there's no place called Haxton, it's actually Thaxted.
