Wethersfield is a village and a civil parish on the B1053 road in the Braintree district of Essex, England.  It is near the River Pant. Wethersfield has a school, a post office, a fire station and two places of worship. Nearby settlements include the town of Braintree and the village of Finchingfield. The village has a long history and probably gets its name from a Viking invader named Wuthha or Wotha, whose "field" or clearing it was. Reverend Patrick Brontë, father of the Brontë sisters, was a young curate here in 1807, as was the Rev. John West, missionary to Canada, who married Harriet Atkinson here in 1807.
