Essex was chartered on June 7, 1763. Essex can be a bit confusing in the same way as the towns of Chittenden and Washington: none are in the county of the same name.
A considerable number of IBM's microprocessor chips are developed in Essex. The plant was located here in 1957 and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2007.
