The station was renamed Tilbury Riverside railway station in 1936.A few houses were built for the railway workers, but it was not until the construction of Tilbury Docks (see below) that there was any settlement worthy of a name.The parish of Tilbury Docks was established in 1903 and the Tilbury Urban District Council (UDC) in 1912; it merged with Thurrock UDC in 1936.This in turn became a borough in 1984 and then the Thurrock Unitary Authority in 1998.At the time, sea-levels had dropped, making the marshes habitable.There may well have been a Roman settlement on the site of what is now Tilbury Docks.The town lies to the north of the London-Southend railway line.
