    1. Chambers gives Home counties as counties around London including
      "home counties plural noun (also Home Counties) the counties around London, including Essex, Kent, Surrey and Hertfordshire."

      Not exactly SE.

      Delete
    2. Home counties are East of England and South East of England, that's where the SE cpmes from

      Delete
    3. I checked SE only from standard crossword abbreviation list!

      Delete
    4. Officially, Hertfordshire is east England seperate from south east England.
