Little Baddow is a village to the east of Chelmsford, Essex. The village is positioned on one of the many elevated hills in Essex and is bounded by the River Chelmer to the north.

The manor was once a possession of Robert the Bruce or Robert I of Scotland (1274 – 1329).

Thomas Hooker, who founded the colony of Connecticut, lived in the village as a child and was a school teacher there before going to Holland and then to New England.

The parish was part of the Chelmsford Rural District from 1894 until 1974, and since 1974 it has been located in the Chelmsford District or Borough.
