South Essex (formally the Southern division of Essex) was a county constituency represented in the House of Commonsmarker of the Parliament of the United Kingdommarker from 1832 to 1885. It elected two MPs to the House of Commonsmarker.


At the time the constituency was entirely in the county of Essex. Part of the area has since been transferred from Essex to Greater Londonmarker.


The constituency was created by the Reform Act 1832, with effect from the general election in December 1832, when the former Essex constituency was divided into Northern and Southern divisions.
