This is a digital copy of a book Ihal was preserved for generations on libraiy shelves before il was carefully scanned by Google as part of a projecl 
to make Ihe world's books discoverable online. 

It has sm-vived long enough for the copyright (o expire and the book lo enter Ihe public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright lenn has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country lo country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to Ihe past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult lo discover. 

Maiks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a Iibrai7 and finally to you.

Bt the rev. EDWARD TURNER, M.A. 

Tub Episcopal Registers of the Diocese of Chichester contairi 
manj curious and valuable documeDts connected with tlie 
early ecclosioatical history of Sussex, But, of tliuir contents, 
no part is perbaps more interesting or more impcrtaut to the 
couritj^ Historian, than the copies which ai^ Ui be fcujnd in 
them of the original deeds of endowment of many of the 
Churches and Chapels of the several parishes of which the 
connty consisted in the two or three centuries immediately 
succt-ediiig tie Norman Conrpiest ; shewingi as they will bi 
und to do, thnt sadi e[idowmentfi were the spontaneoNs 
acts of pious and charitable individuals, who were anxious 
for the eslension ot religion in the districts in which they 
resided and possessed property, towards efiectiug this bene- 
ficent purpose. These K.egisters are also deserving the notice 
of the Archaeologist ; innsmucb rs it is to them that we must 
look for almost nil the knowledge which is now t^ be obtained 
of the foundation and endowment of the many Churches nnd 
Chapels, but principally the latter, which existed in former 
times, auxiliary to, or independent of, the Parish Churches 
in many piirts of the county, but which are uuw for the mast 
part extinct j and although portions of the outside walls of 
a very few of them remain to this day, as memorials of the 






liberality and piety of our forefatlierg, no truces of tlie 
niaiiKler are to be discovered, escept as their sites may still 
happen to be indicated by thf^ name of **Tlie Uhapel-fiekl," 
** The Chapel-croft," '^ The Chapel -wooil," or perhaps by 
that of ** The BtiriuUcroft,'* or " The Burial-plot ;" which, 
notwithstiiTnling the structures may have btun entirely re- 
moYci), having been, some of them, sacrilegioiosly and wan- 
tonly Jeatrojed for tlie sake of the building or road-repara- 
tion materials, which were to be obtained without any great 
trouble or expense fioni theai, their sites still retain. They 
shew too, that previous to the Reformation, these Churches 
and Chapels were much more numerous in the DioeesB of 
Chichester than such as have not an intimate acquaintance 
with the county nre nt all aware of. Situated, the greater part 
of them, in the most ecclutJcd, and, from the bad state of the 
roads, almost inaccessible parts of the county, they appear 
to have been founded by some of the larger and more opu- 
lent Sussex luidownera, as places of Divine worship for 
themselves, their households, and retainers. They were in- 
tended to be, for the most part, at the time they were erected, 
their own private Chapels; and were at first kept np Einda 
used by them as such ; and after a time endowed, tu secure to ■ 
them, as far as It was possible to do so, permanence iind in- 
dependence. But oa the families of their patrons became 
extinct, and the property on which they resided passed intt) 
other hands; and the state of the roads improved, so that thefl 
parish cliurches became more accessible, these Churches and™ 
Chapels were no longer required, and in consequence were 
suffered to fall into a state of decay. Some of the parishes 
in the diocese had two Churches, where there is now only 
one- In others there are now no Churches; and few of the 
larger parishes were without a private Chapel of the kind I 
have just described. 

Although I hope in a future volume to be able to give a 
detailed account of these Churches and Cha[)cl3, aa fur as 
their history is known, I shall confine myself in my present 
paper to the Ctnipels of Northeye and Hydneye, which dif- 
fered from the rest in this material respect — that they had 
towns atladied to them, and were of suflicient importance to 
bo considered limbs or memhers of the (Jinque-port of Hast- 



ings. My object is to place on record all tlmt I have been 
fi\i\i^ to discover, besiring on tlie histttry of tlie^i? tw<i oace 
listiiiguistieJ, but now Uitalljr extinct, maritime Sussex 

Speaking of the Cinque Ports and their limbs, JJr< M. A- 
Lower tells^ us that three only are mentioned in the Domiis- 
lay Survey ; namely — Dover, Saadwitih^ and Koiiiiiey, but 
that the League existed at a period as early iis the tinj« of 
IJward the Confessor, from whom they first derived tlje 
^privileges and immunities they now enjoy. Of the five porta, 
Hastings hiia always been considered the cbiuf. In the 
course of time several intermediate towus and places were 
added to them as members or limbs, and particularly Win- 
chelsea and Rye, which were honoured with the su[>eiitir 
desiguation of '* Nobiliorii Metnbra Qninque Fortuum," 
and which are etill often termed, par excellence^ "The 
Ancient Towns." Of Hastings, the following are or rather 
'ere, for some of them no longer exist — among ivhicli jire 
lOrtheye and Ilydueye — the dependent members or limhs, 
:aford, Pevenaey^ liulverhithe, Hydoneye, Iham, lieakes- 
Tournc, Grenehiihe, and Noftheye. Of these eight limla six 
are in Sussex, and the remaining two in Kent. It ia some- 
what remarkable that in the general Charter of Hastings as 
a Cinque-pnrt, granted by Charles IL, all the Ports Fire men- 
tioned, with their several respective limbs, corpurate ami 
icorporate, with the exception of Northcye, Reculver, and 
Storey, These three are altogether omitted. They could 
then have ecai-cely existed as limbs at that time. 

With regard to Northeye and Hydoneye, they were both 
rituated in the marshes of East Sussex, wliii^^b lie 
between Beachy Head and Willingdon on the one side^ and 
lasijiiga on the other ; and their names were evidently de- 
■ived from their position with respect lo these marshes, both 
them standing on eyes^ or islands ; Ig being the Saxon 
word for land so circmiistanced — land, that is, so elevated us 
to be high and dry, when the surrounding low lanJs are 
flooded. Other compounds of eye are to be tijuud amongat 
the names still to be met with in the same marshes, as Horacye, 
(irluch formerly possessed manorial rights ; and, according to 

"S. A.C.,Vol. I, p,1*. 

B 2 


the Nona Return, had a Chapel in 1341, and was subject to 
thu Chancellor of the Ciitljedra.1 CLurch of Chichester; and 
Mjinkestye, or, ils it is now commonly called, Miiiilcs^je j 
which in 1471 is described in the Buttcl Abbey Charters &s 
a ptirish, nnd is stated to have belonged to tlie same Cathe- 
Jml dignitary ; doubtless, in both cusea, as patron of the 
mother Church of Pevensey, in which pariah they were both 
situatfid. The circumstance of a smull pt)rtion of this 
eye being called to this day '^ The Cliurcb-acre," has letl 
to the sappositiou thnt it had its own Cburch. As tbe 
meaning of Manfcscye is the Monks' Island, and that of Hors- 
eye the Island for Horees ; so Hornseye, in the same marsh 
means xha Island for Horned cattle j Langeneye, or Lang- 
ney, the Long Island; Rickeneye, now called Rickiiey ; 
Mountaincye, Monntney ; &c. At the time tbe greater part 
of what is now called marsh was covered with water, these 
eyes or islands wei-e shcals. Even Pevensey itself, the Ande- 
ridfl of the Notitia, is supposed to have taken its name, 
Peve US-eye, from it^ liavin^ been, at tlie time it was a Roman 
Port, and snlx-^efiuently in Saxon times, partially, if not 
wholly, insulated. Its port, which was at tlut time capable 
of harbouring vessels of a large size, is now so completely 
choked up by an accumulation of silt and shingle, that but 
Utile trace of it is to be discovered. At the present 
time its Haven discbarges itself into the sea near to tbe 
Sluice Liberty. 

Although llydoneye, or as it is usually called Hydneye, 
takes precedence of Northeye, in the position in which the 
idastlniis limbs are placed with reference to each other, in 
tbe must ancient notices of them — Hydneye standing fourth, 
and Northeye the last — I shall begin witlt Northeye, as tbe 
hu'gcr place of the two, and as that of which my history will, 
1 tliink, he found fuller and more complete than that of Hyd- 
neye, of which but little is left on record. 

Northeye, then, or as it was sometimes written, in ac- 
cordance witli its comjnon pronunciation, Nortbey, Nortliie, 
and Northeye— 1 Lave adopted the one most consistent with 
its derivation— was situated in Bcxhill Marsh, about two 
miles and a half, nccording to Husseyi but, in my opinion, 
more than this, north-east of Pevensey Castle, from which 


circumstaoce he considers it to htiTe derived its TiaraG. Its 
Chnpd^ fur a clijipel !t is always ciiUetl, wils (ledic;ited to St. 
James. Small portions of its outside walls were sUncling, 
ucuordifig to tiic tradition of the neighbourhood, a few years 
ago ; and I *idi indebted to iLr, Ross, of tliistings, for the 
dniwing of them, from which the aaaexed engravinf^ was 
tsiken, as well us of some oarved stories wliioh he found at 
one end of what is supposed to have been the site of a street 
in the lit'Id called the Old Town Field, in ft heap of stones 
lying there, and in whieli field the ancient town of Northcye 
Btood; for liothNortheye and Hydneye had towns belonging 
to them ; being situated, uot en the piyee of land immediately 
connected ivitb the Cbnpel-field by means of a bridge, still

carved stones are, two of theTOj evidtntly portions of window 
mullions, and the thinl probably a corbel, of which 
illustrations arc also given. Of the Chapel, nothing now 
reinuirs but the name. Its structure appears to have been 
[ibiin and simple ; consisting, as far os its foundation walls 
have been able to he traced^ of a nave and chancel only, with 
a small square tower at the west end, which was the cns- 
tjnnjiry anangeinent of these Chapels. During the very dry 
»amnicr of lb5!), Mr, Hoss visiti^ the site ; aiid was able. 



from the parched state of the turf over ita iindergroiii 
remains, clearly to dcQnc its shape and size. He was also 
enabled to discover, by a siioihir indication, that there must 
have been u considerable vilkga or town at Northeyc. The 
site of this Chapel is inarted un SpeoJ's map of the county, 
the date of which is 1610. The ^Miiilna of Kortheje 
Chapel" are found so described in Budgen's county map, 
which is dated 1724. It is also laid down on Walker's 
more modern map of Susses. In Gary's County Maps, which 
were published in 1787, the Sluice House is mentioned, but 
not the Chapel. It appears to have been situated on the 

road from Wartlin^. through Hcoe, to Bamhorne and Battle. 
In the Valor Eccleaiasticua it is called the Chapel of North- 
hjde- In the Domesilay Survey, two Churches in Bexlie, 
cr, US it is now called, ISexhill, are uientioneJ, of which 
doubtless the present Chui"ch is one; and the other, Mr. 
Hnssey, in Lis Clmrcbce of Kent, Susses, and Surrey^ ima- 
gines to have been the Chapel of Bulverhithe. I, boweverj 
ain far mure disposed to cou^idcr it as that of Northcye ; 
which, with itiA town ami its manor, would be of much more 



importance, at the time, of the Norman snrvej, t!mn 
Bulverhitlic ; whlcli, whatever may hare been the date of 

erection, which appears to Imve been subaequent to that 
of NorlhGye, had a district of about one hundred acres, with 
a few houstds only, attached to it- Though called a small 
parish, It could not wdl have been so; though it might have 
teen a reputed pariah. 

It 13 singular that Husaey, who is generally very accurate 
in his information, has evidently been, in some way or other, 
led into a mistake with reference to the parish in which the 
Chapel nud Town of Northeye were siluat^'d. At the time 
his work was published he evidently considered thera to be 
in Pevenscji and hia r{:fcreiice to, and description of thera 
are given under this head. And thialed him to overlook the 
claims which the Chapel of Northeye had to be considered 
the second of t)ie two Domesday Chufches in Bexhill; and 
to give It to Bulverhithe, as the only other Clinrch he conid 
discover in the pariah. IIueFcr's authority for placing North- 
eye in Pevenscy is the Valor Eccleaitisticds, temp- Henry VllL,

This Richard Borde, who held Pevensey, Westhara, and

The Manor of Northeye may possibly, and, 1 believe, does 
extend over some part of the parish of Pevensey; and this 
might have misled Mr, Hussey; so as to have induced 
him to place the whole in thut parish. Mr. Rosa informs me that 
the land included in the Liberty of the Sluice, within the 
limits of which the Chapel of Northeye is described as being 
situated, Is all rated to Bexhill Parish ; and that the 
rate, when made, is held not to be good, until it has received 
the sanction of the Justices of the Boix)ugh of Hastings,

But before I proceed with the history of the various objects 
of archiEologietLl interest connected with Nortbeye, it will 
be necessary for me to clear up, as well as the means 
acet'ssible to ma will enable iiie to do so^ Jiie or two dtf- 
ficultifis wliich bave arisen out of the att-empls wliicli ha7e 
at different times been made to shew their dependence one 
apon another. Hitherto tbeae difBculties have proved insur- 
mountable, and have led to the adoption of opinions in the 
matter quite irreconcilable with retLsonable probability; and 
which therefore have left the points they were intended to 
reconcile, under ns ini[ienetrdble a cloud of misconception and 
doubt as previously cKtsl^d regarding thcra. And this 
applies more particularly to the endeavours which have, 
from time to time, been exerted for the purpose of ascertain- 
ing whetlier aTiy, and, if any, what connexion Nortlieye 
Chapel hud with the ancient town of that name. And we 
are indebted to the archieological discrimination of Mr- Ross, 
of Hastings, for having, by many visits made to the locality, 
and the exercise of much judicious and careful examination 
of the sittfs of this chapel and town when there, been the 
means of enabling us to rectify niuoh of this misconception 
and doubt, and satisfactorily to determine some material 
questions connected with their early history. 

With regard to the first tiifliculfy, the position of this 
chtipel and town, with regard to each other, seems to mate it 
highly improbable that the one should, as some have sup- 
posed to have been the case, have been the chapel of the 

It must be borne in mind that they were not in this 
way similarly circumstanced; the chapel being invariably 
described as situated uithin tbe Liberty of the Sluice, whereas 
the town of Nortlieye was without that liberty. The chapel 
is supposed to have stood — for nothing now remains of the 
building above ground — near the t^luice llmisc, on an 
elevated piece of land still called "the Chapel Field/' and so 
marked on the map; while tbe town was situated at the edge 



of tlie Marsh, in tin Gnclosure near to the foot of Barnhoma 
hill, w!ii<;h is still csillt^d '* the Old Town Field;" iiud wlii?if, 
I sliall presently show, traces of a considerable extent of 
riindatinTis are still to be discoTcred, This, then, makes it 
Tery unlikely that the ono should have been the chapel of 
the other; and when the distance between the two, 
u pretty accurate notion of which may be obtained from their 
relative positions, as tbey are laid down intlie map, is add("d 
to the consideration, it rendei-s what otherwise was not very 
likely, highly improbable. This difficult point, however, Mr. 
Ross waa able satisfactorily to set at rest, by discovering, as 
WG shall presently see, on one of bis visits to the Old Town 
field, the site and a small pt^rtion of the remaining wills of 
I the veritable chtipel of the iincient tcjwn. 
I But the clearing up of this point inToIves us in the sola- 

I tion of another very difficult problem, namely — if this was 
not the chapel of the old town, what object had its founder 
in view in erecting it? And why was it called Nortlieye 
^^jChapel — the cLapel, that is, of the town of Xortheye ? In 
^^klving this point we must go back to the probable position 
^^of the two, at the time they >vere first founded; and subse- 
quently when we have reason for thinking the town woe 
totally destroyed, 

I have already stated that until Mr. Ross proved, almost 
beyond n doubtj that the town had its chapel close at hand, 
this chapel, notwithstanding the many obstacles whicb 
opposed themselves to such a consideration, was generally 
deemed to be the chapel of the old town, and this town not 
being within the Liberty of the Sluice was accounted for by 
the supposition that this liberty is not so extensive north- 
wards as the original Liberty of Northeye, as a limb of the 
Hastings Cinque Port. And this appears to me to bo correct, 
ftfi far GS the Old Town being situated out of the present 
liberty is concerned. The situation of this town was, as I 
have just stated, out of the Marsh, but close to it; and the 
chapel Mr- Hossiiiseovcred was to the west of it, and separated 
from it by the road over Barnliorne hill. And the town 
must doubtless have Iccn situated within the limits of its 
own liberty ; while the Liberty of the Sluice takes ibo 
marshy district only. It is, too, to be considered, that at the 



time the town of Northeye was Iniilt, tlia marsh laruls were 
flooded at every tide, if they were not a deep sea-eatuary, 
ennhling veasela to pass up lis waters, and to rule aafcly at 
anchor near to it. This then was an a<iditioaal proof that 
there could have been no connesion between the Sluice 
Liberty chapel and the town. Bntwhen thisceaseil to be the 
case, and when, to facilitate the drainage of these levels, it 
became necessary to erect the Sluice House, which probably 
was aC an early period; for Dugdalo, in his History of Im- 
banking and Draining, tells us, upon the authority of the Patent 
Rolls, that the attention of the public had been turned 
to this subject aa early a.'*, if not earlier than, the coninience- 
ment of the fourteenth century, the case was altered- In short, 
a now district of very considerable extent would thus be cre- 
ated, which would naturally be called by the name of ^* the 
Lilwrty of the Sluice,'' the liberty, that is^ which extends over 
the lands laid dry by the sluice worts, and over the waters of 
which those works were intended t^ have, and had, abeneficial 
control. It will be seen by the map that the road to the 
Old Town, after the drainage of iho land had been fully 
accomplished, was through the chapel field and over the 
chapel bridge. This, without consideration of the many 
impediments lying in the way, tended to strengthen the 
notion of such a connexion. But though the part of this 
road nearest to the Old Town field does not now exist, it may, 
Mr, Koss, who is well acquainted with the locality, tells me, 
very easily be traced. Previous to the general drainage of 
the land it was probably approached by the road over Barn- 
hornehill; which, as 1 have just said, passed between the 
chapel and the town. On the original extent of the Liberty 
of Northeye I am unable to throw any light; the loss of the 
early records of the Hastings Corporation, which might have 
enabled us to do so, having deprived us of the benefit of this 
source of information, has possibly placed beyond our reach 
all legitimate evidence on the subject. It was probably 
small, when compared with the acrenge of the land now com- 
prehended under the somewhat more modem name of the 
Liberty of the Sluice. 

But to return to the chapel, nsuEilly irlentified by its des- 
cription as situated icithin the liberty of the Sluice, doubtlesa 





in order to distinguish it from the chapel of the OM Town, 
which was situated xcitkout this liberty* Why, it may fairly 
l>e asked, was it called Northeye Chapel, when every thing 
connected with its history and position in the marsh seems to 
preclude even the possibility of its evei" having been the 
Chapel of the Old Town of Nortbeye? How to aiiawer this 
question I wuj wholly at a toss, for I could find no allnsion 
its origin and foundation in any of the records which have 
lately passed through my hands^ until, in accideuttilly turning 
over stmie extracts froiu Jeaite's Ctnque-Port Charters, 
*hich btttl been sent to tiie by Mr. Koss, I found in one of 
them an unmistakable allusion to two Northeyea, In speEik- 
ing of the ports attached to Hastings, he aaya, that they had 
in 1229 more members than are mentioned in the exempli- 
fication of whidi he is speaking. For instance, lie adds, 
Ilastiiigs had Seaford and Nortbeye, which tatter port is not 
mentioned ia the later Charters* This, he thinks, stood in 
the field yet called Northeyc, lying to the west of Bulver- 
hithe, towards BexLilh Here then he manifestly alludes 
to the Old Town field. For though this field does not 
quite answer to the description Jeake gives of its posi- 
tion, Mr. Roas, upon impiiry, could find no field bearing tliat 
name between Bulverhithe and Beshill that does ; which 
town be seems to inslmiatc was deBtroyed by a sudden intlux 
of the sea ; for, be continues, ^^ Being all that the devouring 
en bath now left thereof;" alluding, possibly, to the ruined 
Walls which might have been standing above-ground in his 
time. Or else, he goes on to say, it is that Northtye^ which 
Ueth near to CoictUng^ to the Wi'^ticard of BcjihiU ; which 
answers to the description of the Chapel-field. This field 1 
have already represented as an eje, or island ; paying, from 
tills circuai stance, lialf-scot only> The siii-face of tbis is 
Tery uneven; and on it are to be traced the foanda- 
tioofi of a Chapel and other buildings. About it, too, 
arc eousiilerrible indentations und ap]jearances of artifi- 
cial exciavatioos, deep enough, at high water, 
vessels of no great burden, and which are 
— tlie work, that is, in very remote times, 
bands. This Mr. Koss conjecturea to be the older 
of the two. To me, howcverj this appears not to 

c 2 

to admit 

of men a 



SO aa to f.icili- 
or botli Blight 

the case. And for this reason : that ao town could have 
atooil here until aft(?r the levels had ceased to be covered 
with wiiter. Fcr wIiUr they were so covered, or linhle to he 
flooded everj tide, there could have been no means of access 
to it. For this reason [ am rather disposed to consider any 
town that might have stood here to have hcea erected 
subsequently to the destrnction of the old town^ which stood 
Bt th(j edge of the marsh, under the shelter of Bamfiorne 
Hill ; and which^ if tieake's description of its ilownfull is to 
he taken literally, was desti"ojed by a sea inundation ; the 
same, it might have l>een, that overwhelmed Old Winchel- 
sea, for its destruction must have taken place about that 
time. To me it seeraa a reasonable supposition that when 
the flow of water over the extensive tract of land now con- 
stituting the Liberty of the Sluice was ao restrained as no 
longer to Ic of suHicient depth to enable vessels to reach the 
Old Town, ft second Town would naturally have been built 
nearer the sea, and a harbour constructed 
tate the loadicig and unloading of vessels; 
perhaps have existed for a short time together — the one as 
the seaport of the other, beyond which vcsacls of largo 
burden would not risk the passing. And it is worthy of 
notice, as strengthening my hypothesis, that the river from 
the point called *' Two waters'* in the map, and which, in 
its course to the aea^ passes, and probably formed a part of 
the boundary of the ChapcI-field, and which afterwards passed 
the Sluice House, is still called '^The Haven;*' the other 
branch of, it forming the second of the " Two Waters," ran 
in the direction of, and not very far from, "The Old Town." 
The designation, too^ of " The Old Town*' seems to imply 
the existence of another town not very I'ar off, of more modem 
ilate than that from which it was thus poi'posely distin- 

In this way, then, I am disposed to account for the ex- 
istence of the two Chapels, and for the necessity which n-rose 
for erecting a second town of Northeye ; and if I am right in 
my conjecture as to the cause and dote of the annihilation of 
the Old Town — and 1 feel lliat t am not far cut in my cal- 
culation — it may be adopted as a safe rule in the documen- 
tary information which I am now about to give, that all deed^ 




Terring to Northeye Chapel or the town, of a date anterior 

the commencement of the fourteenth century, may be 

aa referring to them; and all deeds of a subsequent 

including the deed of endov^^iuent of Northeye Chapel, 

rhich I shiill presently give from the Bishop's Registers, to 

le ChiLpel ijf the more modern town. 

The name Northeye fr©iuently otx^urs in the Battel Abbey 

Records; and in these, perhaps, wc have some of the earliest 

'Botices to be found of it. These, I shall now proceed 

to give; and, as many of the Chartera are without dates, I 

Bhall, in quoting them, tako them in the order lu which I 

ind them placed in Thorpe's Catalogue — 

Walter de Breggesele is tliere stated to hare given to the 
Bacriatary of the Abbey of Battel, rents arisixig from lands 
lying between Brooke and Norlheye, in the way from Battel 
to Winch else a. 

Lucas atte Gate gave to the same Sacristary four dey- 
^werks of land, by which is mc^ant as much land as a team 
*ould plough in four days, in the fields called WulncTcland, 
'in Northeye, in the way eomuig from Lodelegh to the house 
of the same Luke. 

William dc Hastingea, Knight, Lord of N^ortheye, granted 
Ihe Abbot and Convent of the Abbey of Battel pennis- 
to drain all their lands, as well upland as marsh, through 
the demesnes of the Manor of Northeye; viz., from Trade- 
"bridge, between the trade and the demesne lands of the same 
Ahipot and Convent, as far as SwaneOete, and from thence 
between the lands of the Prior and Convent of Hastings, 
cloae by the old sewer of Codinge. He aJao gave freely to 
the same Abbot and Convent, for the aulvation of his soul, 
]and called Borland. In the original endorsement on this 
deed this land is cdled Holybredeland. 

In other deeds, 3tfp]»en de Northeye and William de 
Northeye are mentioned as benefactors to Battel Abbey; and 
the latter is one of the witnesses to a deed of benefaction exe- 
cuted to the Abbey of Robertsbriflge by Stephen de Ocham, 
of the free use of a couj"sg of water leading from his mill at 
lOcham ; and Reignyerus do Northeye is a witness to a deed 
»f gift made hy Clement Sericlege to his daughter, of lands 
in the Marsh of Codinge, called Shortehclte and Drauege- 


Ralph, Abbot of Battel^ enters by AHotlier AeeA into an 
agreement with James, the son of William, Lord of the 
Manor of Northeye, by which tbia James will be enabled to 
draio Scuttceranrsh by menus of Babbingtietc and Swancflete, 
and t^ make drains to carry off tho surplus water occurring 
between Bereham and La Tratlt?; aud between Bradeleghe 
and Northeye. This Rilph might have been the Abbot, who 
had previously been a Monk of Caen ; and wbo presided 
over the Abbey from 1107 to 1124» or, which ia far more 
likely to have been the caBe^Ralph de Coventry, who was 
consecrated in 1235; and the date of whose vacating the 
abbacy Willis wns unable to discover, but who is mentioned 
in the Chartulary as Abbot in 1251. Nor is it known in 
what way he vacated, whether by death or rcaigijatlon. 

An indenture of fine was levied at Lewes in 1248, before 
the Judges Itinerant, between William de Northeye, plain- 
tiff, and Kalpb, Abbot of Battel, deforciant, of two virgates 
of miirsh Ian:!, called Stntbismersshc in liyxle (Rexliill). 

A deed of William de Hastings, Lord of Northeye, has 
reference to the drainage of marsh lands in the Manor of 
Bernehorne, belonging to the Abbot and Convent of Battle; 
enabling them to drain such lanils thruugli tlie middle of his 
land called Grade, This deed is dated Northeye, August, 
1304; from the year 1240, the deeds being lor the moat 
part dated. 

In a roll of accounts, I'eferred to as among the same Abbey 
Chartere, shewing the moneys received and expended in cul- 
tivating the lands called llolybredelands, and rendered to the 
Abbey Steward by William Trigolea and William Mot^ ser- 
vants of the Manor of Barnchornc, tenements called Coupera, 
Colliers, and Northeyes, are mentioned. And in two as- 
sessmt^nts of Wateidode, copies of which are among the same 
deeds, and which ai-e stated to have been made at a Sessions, 
held for tliat purpose in Uooe Marsh, one in April, 1512, 
and the other in June, 1515, the Chaplain of Northeye is 
represented as having seven acres of land in this niarsb, aa 
part of the endowment of his Chapel, It would seem, therefore, 
that the Chapel of Northeye WitK standing, and had a duly 
appointed ollleiiitirjg minister, so late as the commencement 
of the sixteenth century. 



Among the lanJownera mentif^ned hy Dugdnle in his 
History of imbankiu^ and Dmining, in and about 
Pcvcnscy Marsh, and the other marshes eastward of it, in the 
time of Edward I, is William de Northeye, Ho seems 
indeed to biive been one of the prinr^lpal. The drninage of 
the Ifinil {tn the enstern coast of Sussex appears to have been 
very badly managed towards the close of the thirteenth cen- 
tury; 30 badly, indeed, that it ia recorded of Luke de la 
Gnre, who bad been appointed by this Kin^, in or about the 
year 12S9 (the 17,th of his reign), one of the Conservators 
of the Marsh of Pevensey, that he, instefifl of discharging 
the duties of his office in an efficient find proper manner, 
most injudiciously raised up a. bank across the baven, and 
erected a aluiee, the effect of which was to obstruct the 
course of the water in its passage to the sea, to the detriment 
of the levels generally by submerging, riitber than draining 
them. This led to much dissatisfaction, and induced some of 
the principal proprietors of land in this marshy among whom 
were the Abbot of Battel and the Prior of Lewes, to com- 
plain to the King ; and^ in consequence, to hla issuing a com- 
mission of inquiry into the facts of the ease, of which com- 
mission William de Nortbeye was one of the members. Their 
duty, as it was Btated in the commission, was to look generally 
to the safeguard and defence of the lands of all persons, as 
well rich as poor, in the Marsh of Pevensey, and to remove 
all obstructions to the flow of the water ; but more particularly 
to take away, if after careful Inspection it should be deemed 
advisable to do so, the impediment which had been placed 
by tbia conservator ovcrtliwart tbe haven, so that, by means 
of this outlet^ the fresh water might again bo discharged 
without interruption, into the sen, and iio longer be im- 
pelled in its course, to tbe peril of all persons dwelling in 
and about the same marsh, and the apparent drowning of 
the lands. This led to the removal of the impediment, and 
to better mnnagement for thefutnrc. AnJ thJssumc William 
de Kortheye was again nppninted ei commissioner of the said 
levels, by letters patent, in the 23rd year of the reign of this 
King (1305); and again by his succes,?or, King Edward 11,, 
in the 7th, 11th, and 16th years of his reign, namely, in 
1314, 1318, and 1323. 


The oczt mention of the Manor of Northeye in point of 
time is to be fouacl in the Nona Return, tbo date of which is 
1341- It ia there calleil Nome, which possibly might have 
been the way of pronouocing the name at that early period. 
It will be found under the head Bexlcj rts ffdlows: — "Et

that neither the chapel nor the chapclry district of Narzio is 
here mentioned; nor is the Manor of Northeye, as we shall 
presently see, particularly alluded to by name in the deed of 
endowment. But the manor is mentioned, and the Chapel 
and cha[xslry implied in the above extract, wliiiih states that 
the aoiount of the vaUe of the ninth of the sheaves, fleeces, 
and Iambs of the whole parish will not correspond with their 
estimated value, because those accruing in this manor, then 
in the possesaiun of the Crown, must be deducted, as belong- 
ing, hj right, to the Chaptl of Northeye- Possibly the 
lands ao constituting the endowment of this chapel, might all 
have been in this manor. I am also further indebted to Mr, 
Itoss for much of the local information I am able to give on 
the subject of the situatian in the extensive marshes of Bex- 
hill and its nelghhourhoixl of this extinct chapel and town, 
which wfis, as 1 have already said, of sufficient importance, 
before its decay, to be one of tbe five limbs of the Cinque 
Port Town of Hastings, Well tncwing the deep interest he 
takes in the history of these Ports, aa well as in the 
archffi^Iogy of Hastings and its neighbourhood generally, of 
which we cannot have a better proof than the XII,, XIV,, and 
XV., Volumes of our Collections contain, and that he bad 
more than once visited the Liberty of the Sluice, in which 
Northeye was situated, for the purpose of acquiring such in- 
fonaatiuD and evidences of the site of this lost chapel and 
town as the tradition of the neigh bo urhood^ and the ap- 
pearance cf the locality on which they were supposed to have 
stood; might afford, I naturally applied to him for the result 
of his different investigations into these most interesting and 




importflTit matters, as well sis for any referenws to North(5ye 
ftud Uydneye the reconb of tlie Corporation of Hastings, of 
wliich he is an active member, might contiiin; and I feel tbat 
I cannot do better than give his kind cotnraunication to me 
on the subject in reply, in hia own words, though it will be 
at the risk of some repetition, making only such an occasional 
addition to, or alteratiiiu in, his oEtrrutive, as^ without ma- 
teriRlIy interrupting it, T thought miglit be useftil — a lihorty 
which I feci confident he. will excuse. Ills letter, then, 
which is dated Glaremont, Hastings, November, 1866, is aa 
follows : — 

'* In accordance with your request, 1 forward to jm th© 
little mfomiLition I hiive been able to obtain of the Liberty 
liie Sluice, and of the lost t^^wn of Northeye, wlncb was 
'situated ju.'st out of it. The accompanying map, which is on 
a reduced scale from asurvey made manyycars ago by Samuel 
it, a schoolmaster at Hastings, by order of the Corpora- 
)n, as will be seen by the extracts from the Corporation 
Hecords which! shall presently give, will show the extent of 
this Liberty, and the position of the chapel and f^wn with 
regard to the Sluice House. The chapel was situated on the 
piece of land enclosed by dykes to the north of this house, 
still called the Chapel field, and the town in another enclosure 
to the north of this, tm the road in Rainliorne, as shown on 
the mnp. Mr» Hussey describes ^ the Ch(i.pcl field' as two en- 
closures, which, he says, arc called ^the great' and 'the 

iltle' Chapel fields, and Sir, Lower does the same; and 
judging from a map of Che marsh district, in the possession 
of Mr. Vidler. of Pevensey, the expenditor of the levek, this 
appear?^ to be now the case- The bridge connecting this field 
with the piece of land immediately to the north of it, is 
called the Cbapel bridge. As limbs of Hastinj^s, Northeye 
and Ilydncyc enjoyed all the privileges of the Cinque Ports, 
c^pting those of Wreckage, Flotson and Jetson ; which has 

tttely been exemplified by the mother port claiming the 
whale, which was cast on shore in 1864, very near to the 

louth of the sluice haven^, as Jetson. This is a very 
jcicnt privilt^ge of the Cinque Ports, as is shown by a 
Charter of Henry II. dated 1156, in which he conlirais all

" At ivhEittiiueNortheyeljccame a limb of Hastings I have 
been unable to discover^ but it tvgs certainly at a very early 
period* For the Domesday book of the Cinquc-Ports, now 
lost, mentioned it as sucb, as apjjesiTS by an estrnct from it, 
given at folio 55 of the old Custumal of Rye, in which an 
ordinance of King Uenry IIL is recited touching the service 
of Shipping, and dated 1229, and in which, among the mem- 
bers belonging to, and therefore liable to contribute towards 
the provision of 21 ships, each to be fnrnished with 21 men 
and one boy, which were required to be found by the Port of 
Eastings, Ilydoneye, or, as it is commonly esilled Hydneye^ 
another limb of Hastings presently to be described, and North- 
eye are mentioned. What proportion of this service each 
of these limbs was required to contribute, is not now known. 
Indeed their history generally is involved in much ob- 
scurity, owing to the loss of nil the early Hastings Records; 
nothing now remaining in the Corporation chest of an earlier 
date than Elizabeth, except the charters, and occasional 
entries referring to other charterflj which are to be found in 
a folio volume of the date of Edward T. No information 
therefore, tending to throw light on the history of Northeye, is 
to be obtained from this soiLrce;both it and Hydneye having, 
doubtless, ceased to exist as towns previous to the commence- 
ment of the present town archives. We hnve the evidence 
of the Episcopal Eegisters that the Chapel of Nonheyo 
existed to a later period, 

"But although the name Northeye does n(;t occur in the 
Hastings Coiporation Records, the Liberty cf the Hluice, 
within the limits of which the Chapel is supposed to have 
been situated, is frequently alluded to ; and I send yen copies 
of such entries relating to it, as appear to me to be of any 
public interest; by which you will see that the export of 
iron, the produce of the East Sussex Iron-works, was the 
only remaining part of ita tommerce in later times. The 



3ate of Cunt's Survey sind Map, to which previous allusion 
has been made, and a copy of !i9 rtiudi of wliicb ns relates to 
the Sluice Liberty I also sen<l, feelifig tbnt, without its as- 
sistance, no description of the site of Northeye would be in- 
telligible, is 175tt» Itwiiaaccoinpanicdbyarcport, of which, 
OS fiir as it has reference to this Liberty, I also send you a 
copy. It states that, from the previous survey of 1739, to 
that of Cant, in 1748, sevenil alterfitions }iad been made in 
the outwurd face and appearance of this Liberty, The mouth 
of the Hooe Hiivea, at that time open, and discharging its 
waters into the sea, was then ehokcd up with beach, &c- ; and 
[the Haven writer, being interrupted^ flowed hack, and was 
jmisible to escape. A uew cut^ therefore, wiis made in lieu of 
tthis,at an expense of el even hundred pounds, as I am informed; 
which cut now discharges itself at the Ji^hiice llaven, going 
filong the sea coast a distance of 440 rods, These several 
coursefl and distances comprehend the extent of the Liberty, 
as it ia laid down in Cant's il:ip, and show it to contain, 
upon the whole, 1,734 rods, or 5 miles, 1 quarter, and 56 
' pds," 

With regard to the site of this lost Town and Chapel, and 
My remains that might he discovered of them, Mr Koss adda 
that, In the summer of 1857, he went in search of them; and 
having arrived at the spot at, or semewhere nair which 
he had expected ti^ find tliern, a labourer, with whom he ao 
fCidcntfdly met, replied to his enf[niriea after any evidences of 
its existence and position, that he had heard of such a plaee 
lis Northeye, and that that was fill ho knew almut it, Mr, 
OSS tlien enquired if he could tell him of any ruins or old 
Itones which might be lying about^ cither in a heap or sepa- 
rately, in the neighlourhood. To which he replied that there 

jd to be <z power — a well-known Susses expression for a 
'considerable qujintity or number— of stones in ** The Old 
Town Field/' down by the edge of the Marsh ; but that his 
master had taken them up whenever he wanted stone for any 
particular purpose, as others had done before him ; and that 
he had carried a great many away tc put into the drains 
which he had miide in bis lands, and that they were now 
pretty near all gone. On going to the spot which this man 
pointed outj Mr, Kosa found the surface of the Geld much

Woken up, and lying lu hillocks, and the summer having 
been renmrkitbly drj, heobserved that the grass hail, to a con- 
fiiderahle extent, perished in lines, aa if over the foundations 
of buildings which h^wl once st<Dod there A street was to 
lie very aatisfjtctorily tmced, running east and west, the 
length of the flelJ ; and from this might be obaerved^ though 
not BO distinctly, other shorter and moi-p detached streets, 
running north and south. And an elderly lady, resident 
previously to her raarriage in the neighbourhood of BamUornc, 
ut no great distance from "The Old Town Field," confirms 
Mr. Ross's description in every particular. She has lately 
informed me, that traces of foundation walls were to be 
discovered, in a dry autumn succeeding a dry summer, in 
every part of this field; and that she had often heard her_ 
father apeak of going to the Town Field for stone, when 
it was wanted for parochial or domestic purposes. The 
period of which she spoke would be about a centuiy and a 
quarter ago. She had also heard him speak of founda- 
tions visible above the surface of the soil in Ids day. 
There were also evidences of extensive buildings in the 
Chapel Field to be then observed. 

The road leading to and from the town was, Mr- Rosa 
Bays, on the western side of it, winding towards the river 
southwards. This river flows from IJarnehorne, and meets 
another, but more inconsiderable, stream coming fromJlooe. 
The point of juuction of these rivers is called "Two fl 
Waters;" and is shown on tlie western side of the map, ~ 

" Crossing the road to the noiih of ' The Old Town 
yield,' 1 came," Mr- Eoss continues, ** to the remains of 
eoirie walling, which, 1 was told, was called the ruins of 
Northeye Ihapel; and certainly it had in its general ap- 
pearance very much the character of having onc^ been ^n 
ecclesiastical building of some kind. The walls were com- 
posed of flint bonldeis and very thin bricks They were eigh- 
teen inches in thickness, eight feet iiigh, and about twenty teetiu 
length. The accompanying sketch (see Frontiapiccc) I took 
at the time; and it is well I did so, for wheu 1 again 
visited the spot, in 1S59, I found if gone. Rather more than 
half the ruin had fallen during the intervening two years; 
and still more the winter following. I must, however, add, 




that this ntin hiiJ, in my opinion, n 7ery strong ri^al in 
the same marsh, iihout half vr^y between the Sluice llouae, 
and 'The Old Tomi Field,' in an enclosure which goes by 
the niime of ' The Chapel Fiold,'^ and where strong evidence 
of loundations is indicated by the uneveniiess of the surface 
of the field; some of the numerous hillocks which here and 
there show themselves^ indicating that foumljitlrins^ or some- 
thing else which existed beneath, had been removed. This 
spot I had not time particularly to examine ; or else the ap- 
plication of the pick-aso and the spade would probahly h:ive 
decided the point." Such an examination, Mr. Ross haa 
lince informed me, he purposes making in the spring of next 
year; the result of which I hope to be able to give at the 
end of this volume^ should it lead to anything worth com- 

The fragments of wroughtstone given at pp. 5 and G itre also 
taken from sketches by Mr, Ross. Hefound them at the west end 
of whiit appeiire<l to him to be the rnain street of the town of 
Northeye. They are of Caen atone. The letWr M cut on 
one of them is possibly a mason s mark. The road marked 
on the map by a dotted line leads from the Chapel Field, 
over the Chiipel liridge to the Town Field, 

Mr. Ross concludes by saying, ^' I send you some extracts 
from the Corporation Records, referring to the Liberty of 
the Sluice and ite commerce, and regret that 1 have nothing 
more valuable to furnlsli you with." 

But wherever the Chapel of Northeye might have been 
situated, whether in the Chapel or the Old Town Field, we 
have clear evidence to show that it was founded by William 
de Hafitingg, Lord of the Manor of Nortlieyc; or, as be wafl 
commonly called, William dc Northeye, of whom wo know 
little more thnn this simple fact, and that he was a con- 
siderable landowner in Bexhill iinJ Peveusey ; and probably 
in other parishes in the immediate yicinity of Hastings, as 
welL Hia territorial na,me of ^* de Northeye " would scein to 
imply that he was once a resident of Northeye. Be this, 
however, as it may, the subsequent residence of the family 
was Bockholt, Boxholr, or Buckholt — for I find the name 
jWiitlen in these three dilTerent ways — which whs a aubiiifeu-

margin of the Ucgistcr folio, fi"om which this deed is taken, thus 
interprets — *' Rete ad capuind : vulp,' ' The Manor of Beslio,

of Agilric at the time of the Norman Invasion and Conquest, 
and four years after. At a subsequent period it appears to 
have been, in some way or other, unjustly wi'ested out of the 
Bishop's hiiuds, by Jolm, Euil of En, who rotained posses- 
sion of it until some time during the reign of Rtepben, 
when it was again rcatcrcd by this king to the Bishops of 
Chichester; Hilary presiding over the See at the time. And 
it so remained until the 26th of Henry VIIL (1535), when 
it agiiin ht-cume vested in the Crowu; and wfts granted by 
Queen Elizabeth, in the 12th year of her reign (1570), to

(1248), the Abbot and Convent of Battel recovered of 
William de Northeje, by force of law, 20 aeres of land, in 
Besle (Bexhill), with its appurtenances; and so late as the 
24th of Henry VI. (1448), Adam Moleynes, the then Bistiop 
of Chichester, applied for, and obtained, a license to enclose

that as soon as it had been authenticated by the seals of each

them among the archives of their Fricry. The Bishop,

The Reginald Cohhani here mentioned as the patron of the 
Chapel of Northeye ivas doubtless a toeiuber of the ^' ancient, 
prosperous, and opulent" Kentish family of Cobham, of 
fcobhaoi Hall^ now Lord Darnley's; who were summoacd to 
Furliameiit at a very early period. John de Cobham enjoyed 
»is honour from the 19th of Kicliard II- (1396) to the 8th 
Henry IV. (1407). llis brother Reginald from the 16th 
the 3oth of Edward IIL (1343 to ISfJi), and hia son 
Reginald — the Reginold exercising the right of presentation 
to Kortheye Chapel as Patron — from the 44th to the 46th of 
he same reign (1379 to 1381). In the sulisidy roll for 
the 13th of Henry IV, (1412) he is called Lord of the 
lanor of Northcyc, worthy as there described, £3(5 per 
lum. It states his place of residence to be Saint Hill (in 
iaatgrinstead?) in which case he would probably be of 
the Starborough Castle branch of the family. How lie 
;came possessed of the Manor of Northeye, to the Lord of 
fhicb the patronage of the free chapel belonged, I have 
^en unable to discover. Four of this ennobled and powerful 
family were wardens of the Cinque Ports; namely, Heniy 
Cobham, in the reign of Edward IL; Reginald Cobham, in 
the reigu of Edward II i. ; Henry de Cobhanij in the reign of

lother lost town of Rnsscx^ and which, like Northeye, waa 
'also, as 1 have sviready said, a limb or member of the same 
Cinque Port town of Hastings, The great antiquity of 
lydueye is clearly shewn by it3 being mentioned in one of 
'the deeds referring to Hastings, of the dut€ of 1229i and 
which is given in Jeake^aBuukuf Chai'krs of theCioqiie Ports.

in this charter. So completely has tbis limb Leen destroyed 
that scai"ccly a tradition of its site rciuiiins. It ia usually 
described as buving stood between Pevcnsey and Eastbourne ; 
but even this would be no guide to its localit>-; for the pre- 
sent connyctiDg link between these two places is not the 
ancient road from one uf these places to the other, but one uf 
comparatively lute constniction. It is only of late 
years that some circumstances have come to light, enabling 
us to form a tolerably well-grounded opinion of the actual 
fiput en which it stood. Its being represented as situated 
between Pevensey and Eastbuurne was so far a useful guide 
to ita situation^ as clearly shewing that it must have been 
situated somewhere in or about Pevcnsey Marsh, and the 
following deed among the Battel Abbey Charlerfi seems to 
imply that it was in the parish of Willingdou :— Hugh de 
OfpSt son of Richard de \Vjlltndnn, gave in pure aud per- 
petual alms to the Sacristry of the Church of St, Martin, at 
Battel, and to the Monks tlK^reof, land in Wjllenduo, in the 
field called Ores, lying lengthways from the way leading to 
the house of the said Hugh to the Foss called Ordyk (Ore's- 
ilyke). Among the namea of the witnesses to this deed of 
gift is that of Simeon de Hydoneyejand doubtless this is the 
Simon de Ilydoncye, whose name stands first in the list of 
persons given under the head Pevcnsey, in the "QuJnqac- 
Portuum Libertafi" of the Nona Return. And in thelnqui-

The piece neiirest the villnge is enlleil " Great Hydneye," 
the second " Plough Hydneve," the third " Green Hydneye," 
tbefourtli"CourtHydiieye/' undtliefiftli ''LittleHydneyc," 



The piece called " Great Hydncyn" is about h^tlf a mile, and 
the liirtLest piece, called ^* Little Ilydncye/' about a mile 
and a half from the church. They are all adjoiuing 
landSf and are nearly in a liae from Williagdon Church to 
Pe\ensey Marsh, *' Court" and *' Little" Hydneye may 
fairly le said to he iu the Marsh. A sepanitton of a portion 
of ^^ Green Hydneye" has been occasiuned by the railway from 
Polegate to Eastbourne being oan-ied through it Two of 
the names of these Hydneye pieces are now iuappropriatc, 
as " Plough Hydneye" is a meadow, and '^ Gr^en Kydneye" 
n ploughyJ field! Of the whole there are, 1 should think, 
nearly one hundred acres. Upon ^^ Court Hydneye," there- 
fore, I have but little doubt the lost Town of Hydneye stood. 
Upon a close examination which, in company with Mr, Lowe 
and Mr< Lower — murk the singular incidence of the names 
of my friends and associates upon this occasion — I made of 
the apot,^ I found the surface of the highest part of the 
field very uneven, and giving the appearance of extensive 
excuvatioua having, at different times, been made upon it. 
Hillocks and ti'enches frequently occur, particularly on the 
north-east«rn side of iL And, upon enquiry, I found that 
within the memory of persona now living, stones which bad 
evidently been used in buildings were to be seen lying about 
it. The present parish clerk of Willingdou, who is about GO 
years old, has often hetird his father, who died some years 
sgo at the advanced a^^e of 80, speak of buildings which he 
Cduld remember standing on this most remarkable ^^^, ■ the 
inat of which was a miUthonse. And the son of the clerk,

in driiining some part of the field a few years ago, met with 
foumlationa of walls, which iiopodod h'm progress; close to 
one of which be carried a drain for a considerable distance. 
That E town once stood upon this Eye seems to be eonfinned 
by the triulitioii of the neighbour hood. It ia right, too^ In 
point of position; for a line drawn from L*evensey to East- 
bourne would pass through, or very nearly so, Court Kydney. 
And buildings standing upon it would seem to imply & 
public road somewhere near it, which might possibly havG 
been the main highway from Peveusey tu Eastbourne, pre- 
viously tfl the existence uftlie present road. There ia it mound 
upon the top of this elevated piece of land, which has greatly 
the appearance of being of Boman conslruution, but wliich 
is supposed to have been the site of a windmill- To its 
elevation above the surrouuding marsh land it tloubtlesa owes 
its name. At the time Tevensey Marsh was flooded every 
tide, or, vrhich ia far more likely to have been the case, the 
present marsh district was, like the Liberty of the Sluice, 
one vast estuary, Court Hydneye would have been far 
above the high water level. Highden ia not an unusual de- 
signation in Sussex for a house standing in a high position. 
The residence, for instance, of the Gorings, Baronets, in 
Washington, on the road from Horsham to Worthing, ia so 
called from this circumstance. The summer nnd autumn of 
this year (18C6) had been too wet to enable me, upon my visit 
to the spot in September, to trace underground foundations, 
which 1 am told may be done in very dry weathen Probably, 
like Northeye, these mwy many of them have been taken up, 
and removed from time to time, as stone or bricks might be re- 
qui/ed for draining, road reparation, or some other utilitarian 
puqjoses. The names Ores and Ordyke, I was unable to 
identify with any now-existing lands or dykes. A rather 
broad dyke of running water, on the Court Hydneye side of 
the marah, is called Willingdon Sewer ; nnd a bridge over it, 
Ilydncje Bridge. There is, however, a dyke ruuning through 
Court Hydneye, which may have l>een the dyke alluded to 
in the Battel Abbey deed. The paiisli of Willingdon ex- 
tends through Pevensey Marsh, as far as the Langney Point. 
And here, toOj the name of Hydneye again occurs, two miles 
at least from the other Hydneyes; aa is shewn by an old 



'lense of Lnngney Fjirnij granted in 1G24, by Sir Thomas 
Djke, the then prcprlct^rT to Thomfis Thungar; wliich lease 
gives^ in tbe emuneration ot the lands demised, the following 
names— ^^ The Cliflc,"^ ^'The Horae Land/' the piece called 
'^ St, Anthonie'9 Hill," '^ The Hydneyc Both." '' Tbe Piece 
by the Pidgeon-hoiise," "The Great Rbyea/' and all other 
iiinds Ijing from Pevensey to Eastbourne. This Hydneye 
liotJi is now a piece of miirsh landcl" about thirty acres; but 
at the time thia lease waa granted, a rough, hcatliy piece, 
Hayvrards Heath, in my younger days, was always called 
" He ward' a lloth/' and even now elderly people call the 
gi>ing tlere — ffJing to the Huth. I accidentally found a 
portion nf this lease forming the cover of an old manu- 
script Poll Book for the county, for many years in the 
library of Buxted Park, but now in the possession of Mr. 
Prince, of Ucktield. 

The Tomi of Uydneye, if a Town it was, could not have 
been so exteiisive as Northeye, Still it must have consisted 
of many reaidences; and a better site for a town could not 
well be fvund in tliat marshy district These limbs^ or otit- 
ic rng members of Hasting^!, could not, Lowcver, have been 
of iiny very great aristocratical or commercial importance- 
Court Hidneye, with the other four Hydneyea, might have 
constituted a liberty. 

'i'he Corporation Ifecords of llaatings make no mention of 
Hydncyc. Jeake, speuking of the situation of thia lost 
town> says — *' Unless it was situuted somowhera in the lands 
now ciitled * The Hydneyes/ lyiug in Pevensea Level, be- 
tween Pevensea and Eastbourne, I know not where it c^uM

Lil«rty» or are a liberty of themselves; or whether tbey are 
yet owned by lliistinga aa a niemher." They are uot now

the Ljingnej" Farm, a part of the cstiite of the late Esirl of 
LivcrpooL And Court llydneye, with the other Hjdncycs 
on the ffillingtlon side of the marsh, are, I believe, all of 
them a part of the Kattoo Estate, 

A qiiestioD, however, here arises — namel j ; As to qualify 
ITythieye to be a limb of Hastings, as a Cinque Port, it 
must have been a seaport town, where, then, are we to 
look for its port? Doubtless at Eastbourne: which Dr. 
Tabor considers to have been a port in early times; the 
mouth of which was the lowland close to the Wish. 

The following are tlie extracts from the Ilastings Cor- 
poration Records," to which Mr. Ross alludes; and though 
they do not throw any ligbt upon the situation of its two 
lost limbs or meinbera as sea-port towns, or advance our 
Icnowledpe df tlieir history; still they are interesting, OS 
shewing the nature of the rights and privilegea which the 
parent town exercised over tbcni; and particularly over the 
Liberty of the Sluice, iu which Northcye waa situated, and to 
which only tliey refer. They seem, most of them, to have 
reference to disputes existing at the date of them, as to the 
legitimacy of sucli rights and privileges; in short, they were 
attempts to shake off the control which the Mayor and 
Corporatioa claimed to have over this Liberty. 

^* 1596. — It is also decreed, and agreed upon, that Mr, 
Maior, Mr. Edward Pelham, and Mr, Williarn Ferroor, shall 
have commission under the Common Seale to survey the 
waste lands about the sluice, within this Liberty, tbe Liberty 
of Hastings, and to deal with all such as shall ckyme any 
title thereunto; and to conclude and determine all suites and 
controversies with them therein, as to them in equity and 
their discretions shall seem requisite and convenyent to be 
done^ &c." 

" June 26th, 1597, — It is also agreed, that Mn Lake and 
Mr. Fennor shall, by authority and virtue of this decree, 
have power as arhitrfLtora thereunto^ ehoscn in behalf of this 
Corporation (Ilastings)^ to agree, end, and determyne all 
controversies, suites, (questions, and ambiguities now moved, 
or to be moved; ami depending, against any other person or 
perfionSj for the house at the Sluice, &c," 

■ pp., 1 to II, iDdUBTB. 



" August 2Sth^ 15f*7,^ — Tins AssRmlily have also refL-rred 
the title of the Sluice House, now in question between this 
tovrne (Hastings) and one John Cowper, to arhitramcnt, 
nnd hn-TQ chosen on "behalf of this TowTie Mr* Thomas Lake 
nnd Mr. William Fermor, Jurattes, to jovne in arbitrament 
of the saiile title, with two such others^ as Uie eaide John 
Cowper shall nominate/^ 

The following is a copy of an original letter, now among 
the Corporation Records, which appcnrs to have been read to 
the Assembly, April 29th, 15S*9; and which, though it is 
without date, nmst havB been written about that time; for 
it is addressed ^^ To the Right Hononrable, and my very 
good Lorde Cobhara, Lordc Warden of the Cinque Porta, give 
tbcse;*' and he only took the official oaths as Lord Warden, 
according to the Hastings corporation records, at Bsakes- 
lionrntj, m Kent, August 24thj in the preceding year. The 
writer was Nicholas Harham, an eminent Counsellor of his 
day; wliowns raadeaSergeant-itt-Law, in 1567; and Queen's 
Sergeant, in 1573^ He was a nativo of Wadhiirst in this 
county, and Mr. Ross thinks was Recorder of Hastings. At 
all events he was much advised and consulted by the Mayor 
and Jurate3 of Hastings, in Corporation matters. The 
letter seems to have reference to a dispute between Hastings 
and Pevensey, as to the possession of a wreck, which had 
been ca?t on shore within the Liberty of Peveusey. The 
letter is interesting as a specimen of the epistultiiy style of 
the sixteentli century- It is aa follows: —

The piirisb of Lindficid was, at a very early date, one of the 
' pecidiars ' of the Archbishops of Canterbury, and as 
fiucb Tpas granted by Theobald, Archbishop of tbat see, in 
the year 1150, to the College of Mailing. Hence the manor 
was, nnd is still kaown as South- Malling-Lindfield, On 
the dissolution of the College, in 154S, its revenues were 
grunted to 8ir Thos. Palmer, of New Place in Angmering, 
OSentleman of the Privy-Chamber lo King Henry VIIL (an 
enormous acquirer of church property in muny parts of 
8usflex)j who, in 1 Edward VL, nindealcEise of the rectorial 
tythes of Lindficid, the ailvowson of the vicarage, the manor, 
&c,, to llicliard Carjll, who undertook to keep in repair the 
chancel of Lyndfeld, and to provide an honest priest to servo 
the eure. A few years later Palmer luaJe au exchange with 
the Crown, So, after various re-gr-aiitings^ the property, 
both secular and spiritual, remained in lay hands through 
many chungcB of proprietorship, the ^* honest priest" receiv- 
ing at the hands of tho impropriator such paltry sums as 
£SOj or even £20 per annum, for the cure of souls, while 
the latter was deriving a large revenue in the shape of 
tythes, itc, Tliis, iit Icngtli, led to a very kx state of things. 
The Archbishops declined to interfere, and practically the 
parish was left to its own i-csourc(?9. Sometimes parochial 
duty was performed ex caritate by some well-disposed clergy- 
man, but frequently it was grossly neglected, and even the 




last rites of tlie churcli could hardly be performed. It is 
Buicl that, within the present centiirj^ bodies of departed 
parishioners have remained in the church, unburied, for 
several days, for want of an officiatmg priest! In tlio 
iDeantime the fabric wEis neglected; beatitiful carved work, 
and elegant painted glass were soiTeptUiously obtained by 
curiosity-dealers; a. brass plate, cQinme mora tire of a 
Challenor, was removed from a gravestone, and a book from 
which the followiag extracts arc taken, got into private 
hands. ^ The late lamented 'licensed curate," Francis Hill 
SeweU, of Twyford Lodge, in Maresfleld, — a name long to be 
remembereil by the itihabitunts of Lindiield — devoted his 
energies and his fortune to the amelioration of this wretched 
State of things, by the re-purchase of tythes for the endow- 
ment of tiie benefice; but unhappily he was cut off in the 
midst of his benevolent career, with an unfulfilled object. 
I am not aware of the actual ecclesiiisticiil position of tins 
parish, but I believe efficient steps have been taken for its 
future spiritual supervision. 

It is creilitable to the Christian zeal of the inhabitants of 
Lindfield, and to the occasional liberality of the impropria- 
torSj that until witliin the last hundred yeaia purochial 
ministrations were fairly attended to* Sir William 
Eurrcll gives a list of vicars, or rather perpetual curates, 
from 1595 to 1719.' 

The manuscript to which I have now to call attention ia 
a foolscap book of 118 leaves, bound in parchment. Its 
contents, as will be seen^ are mther multifarious, consisting 
of churchwardens' accounts, nominations of parochial officers, 
& register of baptisms, marriages, and burials, lists of pew- 
lights, * church marks,' &q. It commences thus —

TIlis last entry is not very intelligihie; perhaps the setting 
together refers to necessary repairs of breaches in the walls, 
caused by puliiig down the tinilxjrs of the loft. The war- 
dens were slow in their cperations, as this rood-loft business 
exti?nds over three years. 

Not only was the rood-loft removed, but we have a record 
of the disposal of a much more raluable appendage to the 
church, namely, the Organ, which the parish clerk bought of 
the churchwardens at a very low figure. Perhaps It could 
not have fallen into better hands, as Mr, Morton w^is not only 
parish clerk, hut the public accountant, and probahly a lover 
of music:

Shingles, cleft from the heart of oak, for the covering of 
spires, are the most appropriatfi material in forest districtSj 
and the beautiful grey tone which these oalien tiles soon 
assume suits well with tlie oU weatherworn character of a 
Sussex church. In the 17tli and 18th centoriea (as well aa 
much earlier) the occupation of ashinglcrwus distinct from 
tJhit of a mason or carpenter. On a few of our older churches 
shingles existed upon roofs as well as on spires; e,g., within 
my recollection at Rotherfield and Kottmell, In the backwoods 
of America, shingles are now the ordinary covering of

Oa coming to this entry I was somewhat puzzled- I was 
of course aware that ' briefs' for particular churabes, fires, 
Moorish captives, &c., were common at this period; but 
*' /A^ Chukches of Gombcrltind" struck me as luiiiauaU I 
therefore wrot« to Notes and Qaen&s for information, and 
the result has been some very courteous replica. That which 
was most pertinent and oKplanatory was from A. C. Veley, 
Esq., of Braintree, who, in his official capacity as Registrar to 
the Archdeaconry of Esaex, had happened to fiiid among tlie 
leaves of an old visitation-book a copy of the original black- 
letter brief, which he most kindly lent me for my present 
purpose. As this document posstsaoB a more than county 
intei'cst — as it illustrates the social and political condition of 
"the Borders" in the oldeo time — as it is pro tanto a con- 
tribution to English history — T feel justified in re-printing 
this rare, though probably not unii^Lc, copy of a very curious

The 4 quarterly Collections and Notes thereof as aforestiyd, 
are fa be retiirnetl, Ac." 

The accounts are much less regular from 1610" to 1G57. 
After the latter date the entries arc less numerous aud 
generally less iutsrcsting, UndftP 1659 we have an inventory 
of the articles belonging to the church, including ^*the Twoe 
Books of Martyrs, two fflaggous, one Cup and Ocver^ and a 
table doth of Diaper," The two books of Martjra were the 
celebrated tomes of John Foxc, which were at this period 
commonly chained to a lectern in churches for the perusal of 
the psiriahioners. In 1660 "three bookes of Martyrs" are 
accounted for. In 1601 there occur no less than eleven col- 
lections, probably by briefs, for the following objects: — 

'* For the dtstreflsed inhfttitoints of Eminsterin Sam^rnott^' IhS^ li^

The last-uj*rned enclosures are now commonly fenced with 
walla of masonry; but a practice has long been retained in 
the WeftlJ of Sussex of enclosing the cemetery with wooden 
rails, each landed pmsbioner supplying a certiiin length of 
mil, according to the proportionate value of his property. 
These nilla are marked with the initials of the owner, or 
with the name of the farm for which he is liable; and hence 
the fence itself la known as the "chnrch-marks."" Here at 
Lindfield we have a particular account of the liability of 
each property in 1636^ and as the list famishes ns with the 
names of the lamls and landowners at that date, at the 
risk of being thought tediona, I will copy at length the

In these documents the changes in the ortho^aphy of stir- 
names art? very obsel-vulile, psirtieularly in the case uf Panck- 
liurat, which in the lifetime of a Bingla parishioner settles 
down into Pentecost. Fairehalle also became, through the 
intermediate Ferroll, our present well-known Terrall. In 
proof of this, "John Fayrehall of Bedles,*' 1622, is writteo, 
ten years later, 'John Verall. of Beadles. In the compila- 
tion of the *' Patronymica Britannica," after much guess- 
work, I deduced this almost exclusively Sussex name from 
another source, and I am glad of this opportunity of self- 
correction- The fine old Saxon name Garaton {ffaerstun^ an 
enclosure of grass, a meadow), has become in neighbouring 
parishes, as well as in this, Gasson- 

Paper in old times was dear, and, as in numerous other 
instances that I have met with, the same book waa used for 
records of different kinds. In our folio, wading through 
many consecutive years, we come upon entries raucli earner 
or later than tlie preceding ones. Hence tLe anachronistic 
sequence of these extracts.

WORJf*-^ H^tHTS FOtJNiJ NEa» rt^^fiUHuS 




For Bome years past, in rambling over tlie high laud in the 
neigh hourhood of HastingSj and more particularly at Ore, 
my observation has often been attracted by the occurrence 
offtakes, and pieces of flint, of such form and character, as 
to impress me confidently with tho idea that tUey were the 
product of human design, nad although of extremely rude 
muiiiimlatiou, and in some measure of doubtfid purprjse, that 
they were, nevertLelesa, the indubitable evidence of a very 
rimttive race having existed here in a state of savage 
My suspicions bocanic more and more ccntirmod, 
at length, the accidental discovery of a tine genuine 
celt, dispelled all reasonable remains of doubt from my 
tnind. This occurred not long after it had been Mr. Ross a 
good fortune to find a fiint instrument of gimilar character, 
at a epot near " The Old Roar," At aomo time previoua to 
this, however (in October, 1864), my attention had been 
directed to a letter in tLe '' Times," fram Mr. Hewitt Duvis, 
respecting his discovery of"tlint flakes or celte," on Pos- 
Bingworth Monor, six miles from Uckficld; and from a 
private communication from that gentleman^ which was 
ftccompanied by sevend sketches of his specimens^ I was en- 
abled still further to verify the conclusions I had formed; 
'for th^ type of hia Hints appeared to be identical with that 
of fiome of my own. It is important to bear in mind, that 



flint IS not a component of the strata of this diatriot; here is 
no drift gravel auperficiaUy dispersed, aa in some other parts 
of the county where the obatk abounds; but here, as in the 
Weald generally, the soil consists of an argilloceoas loam, 
with an admixture of small indurated masses of ferruginous 
clay and ironstune, nodules and pehbles of flint being com- 
paratively rare, and adventitious to the aoiL I have cer- 
taiiily walked over several acres of land without seeing a bit 
of flint; and, on the other hand, I have picked up many of 
my specimens in places where I should hiive least expected 
to find them, namely, where the surface was strewed with 
fragments of ironstone. The occurrence of worked pieces 
of flint in such situations, strongly corroborated the opinion 
I had formed of the origin to which they may be attributed. 
I have fouud them all on the surface, seemingly turned up 
by the ploughshure or spadej the celt I found lying on a 
piece of ground that had bocn recently denuded of its cover- 
ing of turf, preparatt>ry to quarrying operations, whcra 
doubtless it had Iciin for ages in undisturbed repose, at the 
depth of a few inohea only beneath the greensward. An 
additional proof of the correctness of my views was afforded 
me by finding, in a particular spot from which I bad col- 
lected several Epecimens of the flints, n few fragments of a 
very coarse kind of pottery, which, judging from experience, 
I consider to be of the rudest kind of Ancient liriiisli fictile 
ware. It is thick, ccarae in texture, being intci'speraed 
with small granules of calcined flint, or very fine gravel, 
and to all appearance, sun-baked* These fragments were 
probably the d^brk of a culinary vessel, that could not 
liave been deeply deposited, and had. been demolished by the 

Tho flint implements are of various types ; some arc oval 
and pointed, as fig, 5, 6, 9 ; oval and obtusely edged, as 
fig, 3 ; oval or roundish, and chipped round the sides, but 
not worked to an edge, as tig. 8, 15 } elungated and pointed, 
as fig. 2, 7, 14 ; tig. 4, 12, have lost their points ; with 
a thin semi-lunar edge, as fig. 16 ; small, elliptical, and 
pointed, as fig, 10, 11; conical, as fig, 13. Ihtse various 
forms may have been designed for tite purposes of striking, 
piercingj cutting, scraping, and so forth. 




As javelin or arrow-heads, 6g, 2, 4, 5, G, 7, D, 10,11, 12j 
axes, fig. 1, 13; knivea, 5g. 14, 16; scraper, fig, 3. The 
use to be assigned to fig, 8, 15, is not so obvious, and I am 
inclmod to think they may have served a auperatitlous use as 
amulets; fig. S U a very pretty apecimcD, having several 
linear markings on part of the surface. The generality cf 
them fire smooth on the underside, by which they were at- 
tached to the core, and more or less angularly chipped ou the 
upper aide. It is not usual to find perfect speclniena of any 
of the types; indeed, the most of them seem to have been 
thrown aside from some failure in their fabricatiou, rendering 
them unfitted for the use intended. Such was not the case, 
however, with fig. 1 and 2; the former being a fine and per- 
fect example of the chippeii celt, which presents, us my friend 
Dr. Hunt h[i9 remarked, a connecting link» as it were» be- 
tween the typical instruments of tbe Drift, and the polished 
Dint celts of the Bronze period. The latter is an eijually 
good example of the nidely chipped javelin-head. 

It need not he a matter of surprise that these ancient relics 
ehould be found dispersed in such profusion over parts of tbe 
ancient forest of Andred" the wonder is, that they had not 
attracted an earlier and more general notice. In that low 
stage of social developement, when the use cf metals was un- 
known, the ever-present necessities of existence would in- 
Btinctively impel the barbarian to the use of the commonest 
materials that might lie in hia path, and the qualities which 
flint possesses, would commend it at once to hta intelligence. 
Tortunute, in the accLuisition of such a material, we may 
imagine hia daily and constant occupation to have consisted 
in fashioning his fragile implements, whose very fragility, 
indeed, would impose on him a furthei' necessity for this con- 
tinual employment. Unquestionably, the primitive races 
arrived at a very high degree of skill in the manufacture of 
their flint weapons ; but specimens of a finished kind are not 
often picked up from the surface of the land; tbey are found 
deposited with the dead, in the cmrn or tumulus, as the most 
highly prized objects of the chieftain's worldly goods. The 
weapons in common use were probably of a ruder description 
than such as distinguished the arms of the Chief, Tliere 
, however, a notable advance in the art of this manu- 



facture, as of every other, ami the flint implements aad 
weapons of the bronze age, have a polish, a finish, and a 
type that do not appertain to the prc-historic ages of earlier 
date. This comparative superiority may he perhaps agcribed 
to the introduction of metallic tools j a kaowltdge as yetun- 
attained at the period with wUiuh my observations arid more 
immediately concerned. I have in my collection, one or two 
pieces of hard flint which bear the appearance of haying 
been used as tools in flaking and chipping into the required 
form those pieces of flint which were selected for use. 

Now, what of the primitive race which^ at some remote and 
nndelined distance in the vista of past ages, roamed over 
these Sussex hills, fashioning the flints, and leaving these 
flcanty vestiges of an existence anterior to the dawn of 
modem civilixatitin? The Jinswer is not so easy as at fu-st 
sight it might seem to be. They were ancient Britons; true, — » 
but that gives only a vague and indetinite idea of the ethnic 
relationship of the race to the great continental stock. 
They were Kelts; probably so, — but we have no data 
whereby to identity tbein with tlie people thus denominated 
whoinhabit^dBritainat the time of CiBsar's invasion, and who 
have left a class of imperishable monuraenta {so far as time ia 
concerned) in the cireular tumuli which are seen far and wide 
beading the outline of our hills, and studding the face of our 
uncultivated land. In the chalk districts of Susses, as else- 
where, these memorials are frequent enough; but here in the 
Weald they are not, at all events, obvious features in the land- 
scape. Either they have been obliterated by the progress of 
agriculture, or the custom of tumular interment, so generally 
preralent, was not practised to the same extent here as else- 
where by the aboriginal tribes. The latter 1 do not hold to be 
the more tenable opinion ; and I could point out three or four 
mounds in the Hastings district which an experienced eye 
would probably recognize as harrows ; and it would be 
extremely desirable t^ set the question at rest by a searching 
investigation of their structure and contcntfl. This is tlie 
only means wc have of throwing any light, faint as that lijijht 
may he, on the natural affinities of the primitive race to which 
the worlcmnnship of these flint implements may be fairly 
assigned. Some years since Mr. Ross made the discovery of 






a lar^ number of ancient skeletons, deposited in a Tcry 
remarkable mariner on tlie edge of tho Eiiat Cliff, at 
Hastings. Each skeleton lay on a bed of cbarcoal, with the 
skull resting on a hollow ffmt Ijonlder, or oyater shelL No 
ive:ipoii or iuiplement w/ts found deposited with them. A 
nidely-chipped barbed arrowhead of flint waa picked up near 
the spot. There were some iron rivets found ivith the 
skeletons. These interments are doubtlees of a very peculiar 
chanicter, and of ancient date; but I should not connect 
them with the priniitiTe tribes^ whose sepulchral customs, so 
fur as we know, had nothing in common with tins mode of 
ficpuUure. Moreover, the occurrence of iron indicates a period 
of advanced social progress, incompatible with the use of 
such barbarous iuventions.

A few notes siifrgested by the above paper by my friend, 
Dr, Smart, in the excellent account and eqnally excel- 
lent sket^'nliea of the fractured flints fuund by bim, may 
be admissible here. Let me observe in timine that although 
I possess a very rudimentary knowledge only of the grand 
science of geolugy, 1 have for many years been an observer 
of the tractnred or " chipped'* flints, which new form so great a 




g.iwstio vexata among archEBologiats, On the appearance of 
the dnlioratt! work of M. Boiidierde Perthes on this subject, 
1 feilt that in siiitii of that liirtmed gentlemjin^s statements 
and opinions, the flakes and so-called ^Mniplementa" were, 
Jot the mo^t part, the results of natural causes, and not of 
Lnraan ngcncy. 

It is tlie opinion — arrived at, as I thinic, on just grounda 
— of several of my al.ik'St colleagues in this society, that it 
is not desirable to muke our '^Collections" the arena of a 
discnsaion on the subject, wliich ia of far more than local 
interest and importance. In ftict, a whole volume might be 
occupied with useless controversy, to the exclusion of valuable 
!ind[iertinent matter. Without, therefore! entering into any 
lengthened argnraent, I shall content myself with the atate- 
ment of a few fiicts, — the result of my own observations, — 
which have reliUioti to Suaaex alone. 

)n 1845— a year remarkable for antiquities of another 
nature, wbich gave birth to the Sussex Arcliffiological Society, 
namely, the findingof the bones of Gundrada and DeWarenne, 
ntSonthoVcr — my attention was drawn to a ^^ baJlast-hoIc,'' 
orbed of dr^^ near the site of the present railway station, 
at Lewes, There was brought to light a tusk of an animal 
of tJie elephant speeie:^, more tl»an eleven feet in lengtli, 
which was sunontuleil and overlaid by ton^ot fractured flints, 
more or less like those figured by Dr. Smart* Of course Ur, 
Smart's fig. 1 is the work of some man's hands; of the rest I 
should be either sceptical or an utter unbeliever; and here 
ai-e my reasons: — 

For more tlmn thirty-fivc years I Ijave lived in a chalk 
district; and, in thtinstinds of walks npon our beautiful 
South Powns, I have been a tolerably close observer of 
obficrvalle matters. I have constantly noticed the fantastic 
forms in which entire and '^patinaCed'' flints occur on the bare 
aoil- About thejn there is no sort of doubt, for if they 
resemble tlie horn or the tusk of an animal, it is perfectly 
clear that they are merely freaka or accidents uf nature — 
luS2is natura^ Antl in crossing any piece of arable ground, 
the fractured flints to be met with are in forms inmimerahle. 
At first sight some of these look like handiwork; but by 
compaj-isou with tliousaiids of otherSj graduating from 




the obvious design and work of nmnT U* tlie naturiilly- 
frnctured flint, every uupvejudicci observer must see, not 
only in the j;radufttion of form, but in the immense numkT 
— millions upon millions — that they are the result of natunil 

For many years past, flint-diggers and otlier day labourers, 
around Lewes, Lavn been in the habit of bringing me anv 
thingcurious that they may havodug up* from a Celtic or Romilu 
urn, down to a chipped or worked flint. Some of the latter 
have been genuine *^ Celts," shewing not mer(?ly humun 
design, but a vast amount of ingenuity and elaboration ; but 
more frequently the "cnrosity'* as they call it, baa been a 
flint broken into some apparently artiticial form by mere 
accident, and having no more relutiouahip to human agency 
than have the piled-np clouds over the fiuders' heads to the 
animals wbicU tbey resemble. 

We have all seen rocks and 'castles in the air;' End I am 
convinced that tbe very great majority of these fantastically- 
shaped flints hiivc received their forms from accident, and not 
from design. 

In proof of this, a few years since, a little boy (one of my 
cwn sous) who had seen me give a shilling to a worcfiy 
labourer for some curiously * chipped' flints, said, "Why 
pnpa, I could ^et yon ^ a lot' as good aa those, from the flint- 
Leaps on the Brighton road;'' aud on my oft'ei'ing him a 
peony each for as many as he could hring me, he went out 
the next morning, and brought home fourteen specimens, 
most of which were quite us good as those which usimlly pass 
current as *^ flint implementfi." 

As to the "flint flakes, or celts," found at Possingworth 
(see ante. p. 53) I am convinced that tbey were simply the 
Bplinters of chalk flints, which had been cracked in their 
passage tbrough a lime-kiln, — as the btnd whei-e tbey were 
found was well known to Lave been extensively manured 
with lime from the South Downs.

Ts continuation of my liiati^r^ of Susaei MAnoriftI ResMencpa 
now converted into farm houses, 1 have aelect^d Ote, or, ns 
^t is now commonly written, Oathall, as the subject of thi; 
reaenl paper; not only because it ia a house oOousidcrublij 
interest in itaelf, but becimse it will enable me to bring un<iL*p 
the notice of the Society another distinguiahuJ branch of thi; 
Shirley family, who were, during the sixteenth and seven' 
tcenth centuries, largely connected with the county. Of Isfielil 
Place, one of their rosidenccE, I gave an account in the preced- 
ing Volume, Oteliall, which was another, was siiiiated ou 

e fioutb side of the parish of Wivelsfield, uear to that open 
tract of ground, which is genenilly known as Dilcliling 
Common, over which it is approached. It is a mussiv*: 
" uilding, resembling in its form the letter T ; the front, which 
Is to the north, being constructed of brick, imd the part 
goiTtg off at right angles from it, of timber framc-wurk and 
plaster. It is of considerable size, and appears to be but little 
altered from what it was when it was first erected. Tho 
rooms of which it consists are large and well proportioned, 

xternally, it6 gable ends and lines of chimneys, united bo as 
to form sets of four or five, as they are seen from the road, 
running north and south across tiiis common, lowering above 

e fine old trees by which it is still surrounded, have a 
trikingly picturcstiuc effect. It ia a fair specimen of the 
domestic stjic of architecture which prevailed in this coun- 
try at the close of the r^-dgn of Elizabeth, and during the 



reigns of Jatnes I. aad the two Charleses, of which Susses can 
boast of some good exiimplea. Over the projecting entrance 
is the date 1500, ivith the initials T.G. Connactlag 
these letters and this date with documeuts referring to 
the possessors of the property thi^rtabouta nt that 
period, tvc find that they are the initiab of Thomas 
Godman, who owned the estate at that time, and by whom 
the house was doubtless built ; or, at least, the front of 
it, the back, op timber-framed part, being of a more ancient 
date. He appears to have been connected with the family of 
Godman, resident at Hempstead, in Framfield; but in what 
way I have been anable to ascertain. The house is devoid 
of external and internal ornameutation ; except that Hors- 
field, in his history of Sussex, mentions that in one of the 
wiadows of this house ai'e the following arms in st4i]Eied 
glass: — Sa; a Lion rainpsint, Ar. crowned Or. G-u ; three 
Lions rampant, guardunt, Or; beneath which is Henricus 
IL (?) Paly of six, Or and Az»; acanton Ermine; beneath whicli 
is Shirley of Sussex. Ermine three long bows, Glj. stringed 
At, But this heraldry is obviously eri-oueoiis. 

That there was a residence here previous to tlie eretitionof 
tbe present house, indeed at a very early period, is shown by 
the possessors of the ilanor at that time> taking the terri- 
torial designation of ^^ de Otehall " from it. A family so 
edited were living here as early as the I4th of Edward IIL 
(1341) ; John de Otehall being uientioued in the Nona 
Keturn of that year, as oueof the four Jurors examined at Lewea 
upon the value of the artick-s of agricultural produce in the 
pariab of Ditchling, of which Wivelstield was then a Chnpel of 
Ease only, included in that return. Different members of 
this family apjiear to have been the Lords of this Manor, 
until the reign of liicliard II, ; in the second year of which 
(1379) Kichard Kentish is stated to have been the pro- 
prietor; and in this family it seems to have continued until 
Bome time during the reign of Henry VI., when John 
Atteze is stated to have been thu LoitJ. From this family 
it passed into tJie bands of John Rlidielbouine, of West- 
meston; whose son Edwoi^d resided at Hammond's Place, 
St. John's Common, in Clayton. Of John Miohclbourne it 
wae purchased by Edward Godman, at whose death it went 



to Ins only son Tdin ; and at. lus decease, to "Williftra SLlrley, 
who had marriiid his daughter and heiress Elizabeth, 

This Williiim Sliirloy was of the Preston Place branch of 
this illustrioaa fiiniily. Of the Shirleys of WistoHi Mr, 
M- A. LowLT hsis given u§ a history in Volume V,, {k 10, of our 
ArchfRologlnul Collectinns- From thla Weleurn tlmt Willisim

8ir Uichard. in 1640; and that by his wife Mary^ who waa 
the daughter of Thomas Isley, Esq., of Snndridge, in Kent, 
he had tvro sons and one daughter- Of the two sons, 
Anthony, the younger, settled at Preston, near Rrighton; an 
eatnte wliicli he obtained through the interest of his mother, 
who, though she had married again, her second husband 
being Richard Elrington, Esq,, by whom she had children, 
is said "to have reaiitt^?d no care to her first progeny,'' He 
married Hnrbui'si, the daughter of Sir Thomas W alsingham, 
of Scanbury, co- Kent; and by her, had a large family. He 
died in 16^4, and wiia buried in Preston Church, 

The Rev, Charles Townsend, sp'^aking in an article in the 
British Mngaeine, of Preston Church, and the tomb there 
erected to the memory of this Anthony Shirley, says : — "On 
the northern side of the chancel, within the altar rails, 
stands the tomb of one of the Shirley family, the possessor of 
this'' — the Preston Place — ''property, in the age of Elizabeth ; 
and the more ancient possesacrs of other and more ample 
domains in another [lart of this county" — Wistou. '^ The 
tomb ia that of the uncle of the Three Travellers, where, in 
the centre of six quarterfoils, are the shields of the family, 
and its alliances* The monument is simple and elegant in 
it9 construction; and it is impossible to see it, as it is 
placed in the church, without feeling it to be a symbol of 
gentility and noble hearing. 'J'he inscription on this tomb is 
aa follows:— ^ Here licth the body of Anthony Shirley^ 
second Bonne to William Shirley, Esq,, of Wiston, 
who died the Seventh day of December, 1624.' And 
on a ahib: — ^ Hei-e lieth buried the body of Elizabeth,

\tcre intended lo represent Anthony Shirley and his wife, 
and their family of tvvelre children," In thi9, however^ Mr, 
Evelyn Philip Shirley, the learned hlstoriun of the Shirley 
tamily, considers Mr. Townsend to be mistaken. For 
s[>e3ikingj in his Steinmatii Shirleitiniti of Preston and tills 
ancient tomb, he says: — "' Preston Church la a small, unpre-

The Altar Tomb, tbeu, standing within thecomniunion mik 
on the north side of the chnnoel of Preston Ghuroh, wliich Mr, 
TownsenJ attributes to Anthony Shirley, is thnt of Edvvard 
EIrington; und the old tomb, d^fiit!ed by whitewiish, in the 
wall above it, ia that of Anthony Shirley; his childi'en 
exiictly eorrt^^ponding with tlif iiumhi^r of boys iind girls re-

kiiiglitcd by Queen Elizabeili, ut Kyc, upon the occasion of 
her visit to thnt ancient Cinque-Port; nnd be is supposed 
to have built tlie present Wistou Ilonse. 

For tlie purpuse ol' rectiCjiri^ Mr, Tosviisend'a luistake, I 
have entered nioie fully into the history of the lVeati}n bruuch 
of the Shirleys tlian was needlnl, to shew ttiat the OtchidL 
Shirleye were descended from them. In what way the two 
branches were connected, I shall now proceed to point 
out: — 

Thomais Shirley, of Preaton, the grandson of Anthony, 
the first possessor of that family, married Elizabeth, the 
daughter of Drew Stapley, of London j and by her had 
Bis sons and six daughters, Qf the sons, Authotiy, the 
eldest, also of Preston^ was created a Baronet in 1654. He 
appears to have taken iiii active ]iart in pulpllc affairs diinng 
the usnipation, and to liiivebeeuby no means a foy a I subject. 
His father's connection, by marriage with the Staplcy family- 
might have been the caiiae of tliis. In the Thurloe State 
papers, Yuliime iv.. pp, Lijl to 190, ther^ are frequent allusions 
to him; and a letter la given from Major-General Goffe to 
fiecret^try Thiirloe, and dated Lewes, November 7th, lt>55; 
in which he says l^^'1 have putt in among tlic Commission- 
ers for the execution of the Orders of his llighncss, and the 
Councell, for the preservation uf the Peaee of the Oommon- 
wealtlj, Mr. Anthony Shirley, who 1 heer is a very honest 
man. If his relationsliip to Sir Richard Onslow" — he 
married his daughter Anne — '' doe not hinder his acting, he 
may be useful. I intend to wuigbt upon him to-morrow/' 
And in another letter to the same Secretary, the general says; 
— *^ If the Cununission of the Peace be yet unliuisiied, I desire 
that tliere may be added llr, Anthony Shirley.*' His gnind- 



father's -sectm^i wife was Grar>e, daughter of Anthony Stapley, 
of Framfitild, The BiiroQetey became extinct in 1705, by 
the death of Sir Anthony's grandson* Richard Shirley, im- 

Willium, the fourth son of Thomns Shirley, married • , 
, , . - tilt dai]ght*:r of , ... Oglandfir; and from him 
are descended the Shirleys of OtfihalL William, their only 
son, was a merchant of the City of London, and became 
possessed of the Ot^hall estate, by marriage with tho 
only daughter and heiroES of John Godman* as 1 have 
already -stat.ed. This William Sbirl(j!y died at Clapham in 
1701. In hia Mill, which is dated March ISth, 16J)9, and 
Tvaa proved in the Prerogative Court of Caoterbury, July 
16th, 1701, he mentions his wife Elizabeth; his ftUher-in- 
laiv, John Godman; his sister Elizahethi the wife of Robert 
Needman, Esq., who is elsewhere described as of the island 
of Jamaica; nnd his uncle Drew Shirley, who was the 
ancestor of the Shirleys, of Shirley's, in Chiddingly, His 
son William, who was born in IGiH, succeeded to bis mother's 
estate, in Susses, and resided at OtehalL He received hia 
academic eduoation at Cambridge, and was designed for 
the bar ; but his superior talents aiid address bringing 
him under the notice of Sir Robert Walpole during his ad- 
ministration, the Duke of Newcastle appointed him, in 1741, 
Captain and (jlovcrnor-in-Cliicf of the Province of Jlassa- 
chusGt's Bay, in New England; audit was under hi& direction 
and irnim?diiite inspection that the expedilion tti Cape Bretuu 
in 1745 was fittx?d out. In 1750 (Jaunary IDth) he was 
appointed one of His Majesty's Commissioners, at Paris, for 
settling the limits of Nova Scotia, and other controverted 
rights in America, In 1755, he obtained the rank of General 
and Commander-in-Cliief of His JIajesty's forces in Nurth 
America; and in 1759 he wsis nuvde a Lieuteaant-General 
in Hia Majesty's army. It was during the time that 
Lien tenant-General Shirley had the principal command of 
the Land Forces there in that same year, and in the early 
part of the following year, that some of the misfortunea which 
afterwards ensued to His Miijesty's service, hut uiore pnrticu- 
lurly the loss (jf Fort Os^vei^o. w^Jjich he had hnilt at the 
mouth of the Onondaga River, on Lake t)ntario, were, at the

and Governor- in- Chief of the 13nlmma Ishmds, Wliile at 
Boston, General Shirley built a house ftjr himself, with bricks 
imported from Engliind, at a vast expense, which he after- 
warils covered, both within and without, with boards. The 
houac^ which still remains, is eddied Shirley Housi?. 

The General died at Itostt>n, March '24th, his age at tho 
timelxiing77ycflra;— iind he was interred intlicKing'sChapel, 
aLljuiniii^ that city. This Chiipcl was the first rrotei=tatit 
Episeapu! place of woi'ship built in Americi; au'l when it 
became necessary to build it, which was the case in 1749, he 
laid the foumhition stone. At his deatli the fallowing 
testimony of the respect in which he was held by the proprietors 
appears ituiong its records, of the date of 1 77 1 : —^^ Whereas, 
; the Honourable Lieutj^nant - General Shirley, formerly 

r Governor of this province, lately deceased, did for several 
years attend public worship at King's Cha^iel, to which he 
was a warm friend, and a very generous benefactor ; for hi& 
more honourable interment^ and to testify their gratitude for 
his many services, the proprietors of the said ehapel have this 
day voted^ that John Erviiig Esq, have liberty to deposit 
the corpse of the said Lieutenant- General Shirley, or any 
other of his family or descemlants dying in America, in the 
i tomb numbered 18, under the chapel." The remains of his 
wife, who was Frances, the daughter of Francis Barker, Esq,, 
' of London, had been previously deposited in a vault under 

I .this chapel. She died in September 1746. A huntlHume 

II tublet, surmounted by her bust, was placed by the General 
to her memory in this chapeh The inscription on this t^ihlet 
commemorates also the death of their second daughter, 
Frances, who married William Ecllan, Esfj; and who died 
in 1741, upon the birth of their only daughter and heir-ess, 
Frances Shirley Bulluii, who married Charles Westeni, Esq., 
of Rivenhall,: in Essex; and wai; the mother of the firat 
Lord Western." K 3 



Of their four aons, Thomas was the only one that survi7ed 
his parents. He inherited Ot<ih!i!L He was born in the 
Bahama Islands; and, after tUa completion of his education, 
entering the army, rose rupidly in the profession. Iiitha

interred in the Abbtj-Chuix;h there. Of Ins two sons, both 
of wliodi were m the Navy, one only survived him, namely, 
Sir William Warden Shirley, Baronet, of Otehail, who died 
unmarried at Rivcnhali, and was buried in the parish 
church. By his decease, without issue, the ancient Sussex 
fivmily of tlie Shirleys, who had Nourished at Wiaton, Preston, 
Westgrinsteati,' Cliiildin^Iy, and Wivelsfield^ all in this 
county ibr twelve generations, became extinct in the male 
line ; the female being atill represented hy the tiight Hon 
Charles Callis Western, Baron Westorn^ of Rivcnlmll, who is 
descended from lolh the elder and younger line of the 
Slilrleys of Preston. 

Fur the account which I have heen able to give of the public 
services of the Shirleya of Otthall, I am very greatly 
indebted to *^ Slemmata Shirleiana"— an unpuMislicd work 
of much interest and value, compiled and printed for private

Upon tlie Otehall estfite coming into the possession of 
Thomas Shirley, the iirst Baronet of this branch of the

(Sip Thomas's) second son, who became the second Baronet j 
and in this w\iy I account for his possessing, in addition to 
Thomas, the christian nsLUie of Warden, For I could not 
discover from ilr. R, P, Sliirlej's ehiliornte account of the 
ftitnily that any relationship, or connesioti by marriage, 
existed between the Wardens and Shirleys, By his cxecii' 
tors, after his death, or perhaps hy Sir Thomas himself, pre- 
viously to his decease, the Oteii:ill estate was sold to Mr. 
William Tanner, of Moorhouse in Wivelsfield, whose daugh- 
ter, Miss Tanner, h the present possessor, 

JIuny traditionary anecdotes of Governor Shirley, during 
his occiipaacy of Oiehall, are still current in its neighbour- 
hood» One of these is worthy of record; namely, tbat 
durirg the ti[ne the son of the first Shirley possessor of the 
estate resided there, he scarcely ever went from home with- 
out six horses to his carriage, which was rendered in some 
measure neccssury by the bad state of the roads at that time, 
Eo that it was not without some difficulty that even these six, 
eacli as powerful as ii brewer's dray-horse — for speed was 
then out of the question — were able to dmg the cumbrous 
vehicle, in which he travelled through the mud, with the ad- 
ditional inconvenience of deep hules here and there, subjoct- 
inp the traveller to the painful misery and danger of being 
jerked, first this way, and then that, ^ the carriage might 
happen to be swayed by ii sudden plunge into them, to say 
nothing of the constant dread and apprehension of an over- 
turn from this cause. Mr, Shirley was a man charitably dis- 
posed, and of great hospitality, on which account be was much 
i-espected by his naighbuurs, with whom he lived an the most 
fricndlv terms. And great was their regret when it became 
generally known that lie was about to leave Otehall, to enter 
on the duties of the office to which he had been appointed, 
in America, And when the time arrived for hia doing so, 
although he set off at midnight, they testified their regard 
for liim, as well as their regret at his departure, by accom- 
pajiying him in a body to the boundary of the parish, and 
there taking leave of him. 

It is worthy of a passing remark, that Otehall was, for 
some years, the country residence of the celel>ratGd Selina, 
Countess of iluatiugdon. She fitted up the hall of the 


or Eli ALL, 

mnnsJon aa a chnpel, and her chaplain, the Rey. Wni. llo- 
maiiic, of til CO logical celebfity, sometimes preached there, 

I may here i^mark that, though the Sussex Shirlcys 
wrote their name differently — some of the family spelling the 
first syllable ;vith an 2, otbei-s with an ?, and others agaia 
with It — 1 }]jive disreganled this ilistinction^ and writt^i it 
invariably with an ?". Mr, Lower thinks the e spelling to bo 
the more anciiiut and proper method for the Susses bnmch, — 
while to m^ it appears that the use of the i is the more 
legitimate and ciijstomary way.' 

Rome years ago, two laboureni, engaged in gnihbing 
up the stump of an old tree^ in a he^lge-row, on the Otehall 
estate, at no great diatance from the house, di9covered a gold 
coin of James I.; and, upon further search, two or three 
silver spoons, of antique shape, which had evidently been 
designedly concealed iindt!r it. The spoons were marked with 
the initial lettera of John and Jane Gndman, from whom 
the estate passed, by niarriage, to the Shirleys. As this 
curious arch ecological discovery has been noticed by the 
Rev. Thomas Hutchinson, in his historical memoit of 
Ditehling, (see Vol, XVII I. , p. 247), 1 need say no more 
upon it.

2, O/i the Personal Appvarance of Harvld. — TVhen 
Harald Hardrada, hcforc tiic battle of Stamford Bridge, for 
the fii'St time beheld Harohl, he is aaid to have exclaimed, 
'* He ia a little man, but he sits firmly in his etirrups;" as, 
howeVLT, aL^cordiu^ to the Saga, the King of Norsvay was 
himself five ells, or moro than seven feet in height, Harold 
may have appeared short by comparison, On the Bayeux 
Tapestry, Duko TVilliam is also represented as taller than 
Harold ; but it is well known that the Conqueror was a 
person, not only of unusual streugtli, but of unusual stature, 
Harold msiy tlierefere have been, as he is described by an 
early writer, "tall." The same author also intbrms us that 
he waa ^' bandsome." It has been conjectured that in the 
Tapestry, the delineations of Harold and of William, ''bear 
some resembhiEice to the origiuali, and that they were drawn 
by an artist ivlio Icuew them both ;'' hut from tbis little ciia 
be inferred as to the form and countenance ol' the last Saxon 
King. He there has a moustache in common with most of 
his countrymen, Ordericus Vitalis, wbo was certainly not 
inclined to speak too flatteringly of Harold, thus deseribea 
him : — " Erat enim watj/fitndlne et e/egatitta v'u-lbitsque 
corporis nnimique audacia et linguos facundia, multisfjue 
facctiis et prohilalibus admiVabilisJ^" 

3, Harold's visit to Normandy, — The opening scenes in 
the Bajeux Tapestry, full of interest as they are to the 
Sussex Archicologiat, relate to a fact, which "whatever may 
have been ^vritten concerning it in later times, may be pro- 
nounced one of the most contested in English history."" We 
here consider only the views taken of it by chroniclers who 
lived within a century of the circumstances, 1. That

was commisfiioncd by the Confessor to go to Duke '^"'JlUaiu, 
and infonn him th^t the Kin); had nominated hmi succesaor 
to the throne- 3. Tiiat cnntrary to the Conff^ss< ir's wishes, 
llarold went to Normandy to obtain tbe release of his 
brother Wulfuoth and his nephew Hnkon, detained there as 
hostages. Hence arise two questions, h Did Harold go to 
Normandy by accident or intentionally ? 2. Supposing the 
latter, did he go to execute a commission fiTinLthe Confessor, 
or t« liberate his irienda? The opinion that liamhl went 
designedly is supported ly the greater weight of evidence. 
That the object oi' his voyage was to rescue Wulfuoth and 
llakon^which Wace is inclined to belie ve^appears most 
probable- As tbe piirpo!*e of the Baycux Tapestry is to put 
forth strongly Willinni's right to the Crown^ it wonlJ in- 
culcate the idea tbut Harold came to William with a com- 
miasion, and it does not introduce the hostages; yet we 
know that Wulfnoth was then detained as such by William, — ■ 
Tbe inference, thertfcre, is, that this omission of all reference 
to bim is intentioual. 

All authorities agree as to tbe place of Harold's embark- 
ation, lie appears la the Tapestry riding with his soldiei's to 
Bosbam, whieh Maltnesbury speaks of as his country seat. 
Accoutred for the chase, he bas hawk on hand, and hounds 
running before bim. The church at Bosbaiu is probably 
drawn conventionally, as we see nothing of its line Saxon 
tower, which must then have existed, and which still re- 
mains*'" Dr> Bruce obset-ves that its chief feature is the 
doorway, that the windows are small and insignificant. It 
is roofed with shingles or tiles rounded at the lower eud, and 
fastened to tbe framework by nails. Harold prepares for a 
lia^ai-dous enterprise by seeking the Divine blessing on his 
undertaking. He approaches tbe church with bended knees*

4, Harold at tlie passaff6 of the Coc>/iow,— Among the 
incidents described in tlie Baveiir Tapestry is one wliich is 
worthy of notice, aa bearing testimony to Hnrolirs presence 
of mind and courage. During his detention by Duke Wll* 
Ham, Harold accompanied him on his expedition against 
Conau, Count of Brittany. At a tbrd of the Cocsnon, the 
river which separates Brittany from Normandy, the Nor- 
mans experienced great difficulties. Their mishaps are hinted 

at by the delineator of this liistoricjJ piece of needlework in d 
a chapter of accidents on the border A man, knife in hand, fl 
has fallen wliile trying to catch eels in the river ; a wolf™ 
Ecizes him by tKe toe ; the tail of tlic wolf is pounced on by 
a bird of prey^ which in turn does not escape scatheless. In 
the Tapestry itself Harold sippears as the extricator of some 
unfortunate Normans irom the cpiicksands of the Coesnon. 
lie haa plunged into the stream, and seized, simultancoi^ly, 
two of the drowning soldiers ; one cliugs to his neck, while 
another grasps his hand as ho is striving to recover firm 
ground- '* The sand along the bed of the river " has been 
obse^^'ed to be "an exceedingly fine, white, marly dnat, 
which, when covered with water, aflTonls most treanheroua 
footing."^^ That the circumstances of this rescue long re- 
mained strongly impressed on Duke William's followera 
seems implied from its occurrence in the Tapestry, of which 
each scene has evidently been CftrefuUy considered. lliirold 
left Sussex with a considerable number of armed companioT^s, 
whom the Norman writers mention as sharing in the dangers 
of the campaign, 

5, Of Baro/ffs Oath, — Sir F. Palgrave remarks that 
"the dramatic circumstances of HarakVs oath en concealed 
relics are totally unknown to the earlier and only trus 





\Tnrtliy annalists-" It is true, that tlie Sflxon fiuthori ties are 
silent, yet the tesiimony of earJy Jsornian writ^i-s on this 
point is too atrong to be disputed- In the eleventh century: 
false, perjured, ad sacramentum mmi^ profiigu-9, were the 
epithets usually heaped on him by the supporters of Duko 
Willlftm, This whs the ground of the bull of escommuni- 
cfition issued against Harold by Alexander IL, to which was 
added ''a consecrated banner and a ring c<»ntaiinng one of 
the hairs of St. Peter, set under a diamond." As the breach 
of this engagement is the chief charge against him, it should 
not be passed over, Waee says that William haviug previously 
induced Harchl, who Wiia iii his power, to prrmiise him his 
aid in obtaining England, cimsed aparliament to he called at 
Kayeux; '* lie sent for all the holy bodies thither, and j>iit as 
many of them together as to fill a whole chest; but Harold 
neither saw them, nor knew of tlieir being there^ for notight 
was shewn or told him almut it, and over all was a phylac- 
tery. '' On these, he states, Ifarold swore to assist him in 
ins object, and the Duke then led him to the chest and dis- 
played its contents, appealing to the terrors which were 
Guperstitioiisly supposed to environ them* '" According to 
the Ncrmun account, therefore, be was entrapped into 
making the promise under false pretences ; yet, in breaking 
it, he cannot be exonerated from blame- After Harold's 
accession to the thrcne, as Malnieahury informs ns, he did not 
deny the transaction. It has been said, and probably such 
was the case, that he deemed it no dishonour to break an 
oath forced upon him by bis host, and thought it foul scorn 
to submit to an Itidian priest. Ills reply to William was 
calm and temperate ; be contended that an obligation con- 
tracted under duress was not birding, and, alluding to the 
fact that he had been chosea king by the Witan, averred 
that he could not alienate the royal succession without tho 
consent of the Saxon [leonle.

but could not recognise the boily of hini they sought, so much 
hnd his woumls tlisfigureJ him. [)esp:iiring ever to succeed in 
their reaetirch unaided, they addressed thcmaelves to a woiimn 
whom Harold, before he became kbig, had kept as a mistress, and 
eutreftted her to iissiat them. She was called Edith, and sur- 
named tlie Beauty with the Swan's neck. She consented to 
accompany them, and was more successful than they in dis- 
covering the corpse of him whom she had loved"'; but, says 
Dr. Bruce, ^' great dishonour has been done to this lady by 
stating that she was the mistress of Harold. Sir Henry 
Ellis, in his introduction to Domesday*' has proved that she 
was his Queen-"" Eadgyth is mentioned in that survey as 
Eddcva pulchra; Edcva faira. Eddeva being a mere Norman 
corruption of the name. ^' Edith, Al^iva or Eddeva," remarks 
Sir H, Ellis, *'are ali names synonymous. She was no other 
than the daughter of jElfgar^ and widow of Griffith, Prince of 
Wales, after whose death ?he Iwciime the wife of Harold," 

9. Harold's gossip. — According to Domesday, one of tlie 
Norman tenants, under the Confessor, wns a Willirim Malet, 
and to a William Malet, William of Poicters and others 
mention that Duke William delivered the body of Harold for 
interment. In the De Bello Hastingensi Carmen,"'^ attribute J 
to Guy of Amiens, the person is not nameil 5 but spoken of 

as *^f[iiidam partim Normnnnus et Angliis

10. Of Harold's burial p/at?^.— The accounts of Harold's in- 
tLTTQetit are v;i nous and con trad ictorj^. William of Puictiera 
asserts that Gytha offered to the Conqueror the weight of her 
son'sbody in gold, auri par pondus^ for the privilege of burying 
it, and that this offer was refneed, Mulracsbury saya thitt Duke 
Williani sent the bwly of Harold to his mother unransomsd. 
AFter the corpse hud been recognised hy Riidgyth, andd<?livered 
to Malet, it wiis interned under a cairn of stones on the coast^ 
of Susses, The Norman Duke is said to have dcdarcd that 
it befitted hira to be buried on the coast which he had so 
long guarded; and on the Sussex shore, William of Poictiers, 
the Conqueror's chaplain and a comjietent witness, Orderic 
and Guy," all early authorities, leave the remains of our last 
Saxon king. '^Harold could have chosen no burial apot/' 
says hisadmirer in romance, "soworthyof his English flpipit and 
his Roman end." He had, however, founded and en^lowed at 
Waltham the Abbey Church of the Holy Cross, and hud there 
offeredhis devotions before marching to hislast battle, and, ai;- 
cordingto the later chroniclers, his dead body was conveyed back 
thither by certain monks who had followed the king- A 
modern poet'" would thus call up the scene in the Abbey to the 
imagination: —

Wi-lliam cf Malmcsbury is the first writer who speaks of 
the burial at Waltham. Later annalists narrate details of his 
sepulture there, with regal honours, in the presence of many 
Normim nobles and gentlemen. The supposition tlmt a disin- 
terment took phice after Harold had been buried in this county 
ifl one which tlnire appeal^ no rcjifiun fur di^rL-ditrrig, uUh*JUgh

Some years since, while traveraiag the line of the Roman 
Wall, from end to end, inidtr the guidance of my friend, Dr- 
Briice, its eniinetit historiLic and exponent,! was parti ciilnrly 
struck with the distant view of the wild and lofty height, 
rising, it is said, a thousand feet above the level of the saa, 
and called Aldstou Moor, It lies on the confines of the 
counties of NortbuiiiLerhiiid nnd Cuniberlaud, and is rich in 
lead and other mineral productions. ^* Aldston Moor'' seemed 
to me a familiar name ; and, after a little effort of memory, I re- 
collected that I had heard of it as the ancient abode of a 
family well-known in the south of England, and associated 
with the once celebrated ironworks of Sussex. Facts which 
have lately come to my knowledge have induced me tn in- 
Teatigate the history of tlils ancient race ; and 1 have now the 

{jloaaurc of laying holWe the membersof the Sussex Archroo- 
Dgical Society some details of their genealogy, and some 
particulars resfiectiJig their settlement in ourcounty, 

In the last volume of the Sussex Archmological Collections 
(xviii, pp. lO-Hi), 1 pointed out the migration in the aix- 
tcenth century. fmmSuEsex U) Glamorgansliire, of certain fami- 
lieSi who,iii the Littar county, resuscitatedthelongextinct iron- 
trade of ii^uth Wuliis* I am nut in a position to prove that, 
in a manner somewhat analugous, a proprietor of lead mines 
OIL Aldaton Moor was induced to come from the northern 

M '2 


borders to settle in Sussex, to worlc our iron; but there is 
strong prcaiiopticn that sucli was the cjise. Certain it ia 
that UoBKRT WiiiTFELD, thc patnQi'ch of the Sussex Whit- 
felds, came from Alflston Moor about the end of the fifteenth 
century, uEtd fixed bis abode ut WaUJiurst. 

The circumstances attending this gentleman's settlement 
ill the South present some peculiarities, which will be best 
explaincfl by the subjoined document. The jealous policy of 
Henry VIII. with ref^ard to the immigration of aliens, par- 
ticularly Frenchmen and Scotchmen, is a matter of biatoiy. 
Imprisonment was one of the lightest penalties wliich the 
foreigner had to submit to ; and even a man of English birth 
was frequently subjected to great indignities unless lie could 
make good his elaim to btj a genuine John Bull. 

Holinshed, under 14 Hen. V!II., says, tliat In the per- 
secutions then raised against French and Scotchmen, attempts 
were made to accuse mauy Engli^hmeu, natives of Northum- 
berland, and to fine them as Scots; *of which Ent^lishmon 
borne neoer Scotland,' says a marginal note, attached to some 
papers at Wliitfield Hall, North utn be rhmd, * the said Robert 
\Vhitfichl was one/ The ttnorof the Certificate, which is in 
Latin, is as follows: — 

^* To all the sons of Holy Mother Church to whose notice 
these letters shall come — Hugh Prior of Durham and Sir 
William Hilton desir** health in t\w Lord. — Whereas Robert 
Whitfitkl, late residing at Wadhiii'st, in Sussex, has of 
latti suffered much annoyance and reprooch by charges 
brought Against hiin of being a Scot, and born in Scotland; 
and certain powerful men and other ministers, officers of the 
King in that part of the country, were willing to bail him 
frojH //it sfocks and pi'tmn till he could bring evidence of 
his being born in England; and he, the said Uobert Whit- 
field, liath petitioned us to make diligent inquiry by sufficient 
witnesses concerning his birth, and the place of his nativity, 
— We, therefore, the said Prior and William Hilton, Knt, on

Tlie autbenticity of Robert Wbitfeld's descent from the 
Norttiuiiiberliii^d family is furtber attested by the follawiDg 
certificate of William Detlnoke, then York Herald, and sub- 
sequently Garter King -of- Arms. As it occurs within fifty j 
years of the date of the previous cortificata, and as during fl 
that period abundant opportunities of upsetting that docu- " 
merit, bml it been spurious, must have presented themselves, 
we have the strongest reason for believing in the correctness 
of the pedigree.

J. B. T-if/hr'a Copy of Visit Korthd., 1576. 

In the genealogical table to which thia note ia attached, and 
-which is in substauce the aame as that given above, it is 
stated that ** R*ilK*rt, stm of Mjles, cmue cut of the North 80 
years past, and dwelt at Wiulhnrst/' This would make his 
arrival in Sussex about the year 1491, as stated above. 
At that time our Iron Works were being aroused into a 
state of activity previously unknown^ and the presumptioa 
that Mr, Whitfeld engaged in the iiunnifactare at Wudhurst, 
the centre of a great iron district., is increfised by the facit 
that his son Ki-bert wiis possessor of the old mansion ofRow- 
fnnt, in the nut fur distafit parish of Worth, and carried on 
extensive works in that and the neighbouring districts, and 
that his grandson, Ge'.frge Maj, of Barwnsh, was a well- 
kHown iron -master J as his father had probably been before 





The good social status of Bohert WJa'tfeld is shewn "by 
the excellent coEnectiuns furmed hj Lis cbilJj'en with the 
Jefferays, EilwarJaes, nnd MaySj all armigemus fiimilies. 
The following is n deduction of tKe branches, existing and 
extiDct, from their original Susses progenitor. 

Of hia own marringe, I can discover no particnlnra ; and 
^yhethe^ his wifu was a nortlieni lady, or of South-S[tson 
race, it would be difficult or impossible at this distance of 
time to ascertain. Of hia children, tho eldest son wa.3, as 
we have seen, a landed proprietor and iron-muster at Worth, 
and, probal>lyT also at WadliiirsC, us he is stated in the 
Visitation of lfi34 to have been of the latter place, thongh 
the herald, by inadvertence, nny have confonnded him with 
his father, lie married Agnes, daughter of William Att- 
wood, of the County of Kent, and had issue Thomas W. of 
Mortlake, co, Surrey, and William W, The elder son, 
Tbthiuas^ loftrried Mildred- daughter of TIenry Manning, of 
Greenwich, whose arnia were Sable^ a lion rampant^ iend^ 
of six Artjeiit and Gufd^ ; which arms, associated with those 
of the ancient coat of Whitfeld, were sanctioned and attested 
by the celebrated Chirencieiix, William Cauid^in, ** Nonrice 
of Anticjnitie," in IGOti. The issue of this union were— 
John W,, of whom presently ; Henry W., of Ockley in 
Surrey, whose wife was n daughterof Dr. Shelf; Knthcrinc, who 
married William Geofiry (or Jefferay) ; Elisabeth ; Lucy ; and 
Frances. John Whitfeld, the elder sou, was resident at Row- 
fant at tlie ttme of the Visitution of 16-^4 ; lie married 
Eliza, daughter of Sir Edward Culpeper, of Wakehurst, 
Kiught, by whom be had Thomas, who had attained his ma- 
jority before 16S4; John, Robert, Elizabeth, Anne, and Maria. 
.Jiespecting this branch, the Visitutions alTurd ns no further 

trmation ; but tbere are several monnmcntal inscriptions 

their memory in Worth Chui^h, which will probably be 
copied in a future volume of tlicsc Collections, Tho junior

I have deduced the later descents of this family in a purely 
genealogical spirit, merely to connect the present with thi 
past. It is curious to note in a succession of fifteen generations 
ma untitled fimiily enjoying a general current ot prosperity 
— holding on the even lenonr rf their way amidst the ninni-j 
fold chances and changes of thia aublurmry statfl— for mo: 
than five centuries- This acoount of the Whitfebls might bi 
greatly ampliflyd in its numerous brauches; but mv object' 
was simply to show the connection between the WhitfehU of 
tiie North and those [»f the South, ns provud by the cTirjojs 
certificate cited at the commencement of this paper.

The papers are ti>o numerous to be printed in their en.- 
lirety, but the seleotions now njade will serve to ilhistrate 
documents 3catt<?red over many foho volumes* 

By the ordinance of the Lords and Commong, passed 3ist 
^larch, 1643, it was ordered that the estates, real and personal, 
nswellofthetwonrchbishopsandothers therein named, ns also of 
**all other person and persons,' ecclesinsticid or temy»oral, as bad 
raised, or should raise, arms against the parliament, or had 
l>een, were, or should be, in actual w^r against the same; or 
had contributed, or should voluntarily contribute, not being 
under the power of any part of the ting's army, any money, 
horse, plate, nnns, munition, or other aid or assistance in 
aid of the king's forces, or for opposing any force raised by 
parliament"; or for robbing, &c», of any who bad willingly 
yielded to its demands; or of such as had joined, or should 
join, in any oath or act of association against it; or had im- 
[H>sed, or should impose, any tax or assessment in support of 
any forces against it, should be seized and sequestered into 
the hands of sequestrators and committees. 

The sequestrators for Sussex were Sir Thomas Pelhani, 
Bart., Anthony Stapley, Herbert Morley, Thomas Whitfield, 
John Enlcer, Harbert Hay, Esquires; Herbert Springatt, of 
the Broyle; Kalph Cooper, Hall Kavenscroft, Edward 
Apsiey, John Downes, William Cawley, Edward Higgon,

Four treasurers were appointed to sit at GulMhall,^ and the 
comioitfc^c for sorjtiestmtions sat at Habcrdasliers' Hall. 

On the 6th June, 1643, it was expressly ordered that the 
estates of the Bishop of Chichester (Henry King), Sir John 
Morh*y(wlLuliad been summoned as iideliiiqiient by parliament, 
on 1st November, 1642, and afterwfa.rda had been tincd£500 
for his defence of Chicheater), of Mr- Wolfe, of Susses, of 
the Lord Vlscotint Montague, of Cowdray (sec Suas. Arch, 
Col., v., p. 181), ft papist, and of Sir Thornns Bowyer, 
should be sequestered. This was but tlie commence men t 
of a longaeries> 

The ordinance waa extended in its operation, by another 
ordinance, of 19th Augnat, 1643, to persona who absented 
themselves from their dvfellinga, &g., and to ** Popish reetiannts 
convict," and to those who, aiuce ^%h November, 1642, had 
willingly harboiireil, or should harbour,' any '^ popish priests, or 
jcsnita," in their houses or dwellings; or had been at mass at 
any time within a year before i^6th March, 1643,or should there- 
after be at mass^ or whose children, or grandchildren, &c,, 
under their tuition or government, should be brought up in 
the '^popish religion;'^ or, being over 21 years of age, should 
refuse to take the oath of abjuration thereby prescribed. 

What the number of sequestered estates in the wholecounty 
was, 1 have not the means of ascertaining. Many, however, 
compounded for their estates^* and of these we have alist printed, 
^irst in 1055, under the title of *' Catalogue of lords, knights, 
and gentlemen, who have compounded for their estates;'' re- 
printed in 17pS3 ; and, again, though with many typographical

On IGth July, 1651, an onler was made to sell severiil 
estates of delinquents, and among them of Christopher 
Leweknor, late of the Middle Temple, esrjuire (formerly 
Iteconler of Cfiich&ster), juid on 16th August, 1Q52 (aniong 
others), of Williiim Lord (afterwards created Earl) Craven. 

Geohgk Lord Gorino. — The zeal of this nobleman for 
his royal muster is well known; bnt it was not till lOth 
May, 1650, that the commissioners of sequestration for 
Sussex were authorised and desired forthwith to seize and 
SGcnre the *^ estutea niall and porsonnU uf George Lord 
Goreing yn father^ :inil Lo. Goreing the somiej lying'** in 
this county. 

It was under the excnss of coming to England to coin- 
pouid for hid estates that this Nobleman was at home to 
head the Kentish and Sussex petitioners. After the fdl of 
Colchester, lie and his son retired to Paris, and in a short 
time he succeeded in having the sequestration of his estates 
discharged. His case waa heard on 28th February, 1050-1, 
by the coniTnissioners for ihe atlvance of money, aictmg at 
Ha}>erdasln3rs' Hull," when Mr, Rrereton argued for the 
Commonwealth, and Mr. Lee as counsel for Ijord Goring; 
and the esaminatioa of Timothy ISuttg having been read, 
also two letters subscribed by Colonel George Goreiiig, the 
son, dated at Paris, one directed to the said Lord G., the 
other to the said Timothy Butts, it was determined that it 
did not appear he was a delinqneiit witliin the ordinances of 
parliament^ and it was resolved to discharge the sequestra- 
tion upon his estate. Part of this was Mulbcry House, let 
for £130 a-year, and on 4th Miirchj 1651, Anthony Deanc, 
to whom he was indebted, sought to keep half-a-year's rent, 
but failed." 

Hut Lord G» did not enter again into possession without 
trouble, for Stephen Humphrey and Henry Stalmun, the 
Commonwealtli corainiaaioners, wrlliu^ from Chichester, on 
18th January, 1653-3, stat^ that the estates were claimed 
by Isaac ,Iones,^ as mortgaged for £3O0Oj borrowed to dis- 
charge the son's debts.

the writer had joined the French service, in the w«,r against 
Spain, wbioh was terminated only by the Peace of the

Chester, with his eldest son^ Edward Ford (whom the hin^ 
had made High Sherifi'of Susses), whence he was carried 
away prisoner, with his son, to London House; and during 
the lime of his incarceration he wi^ote divers letters, en- 
closing petititms to various raemhers of the House of Com- 
mons, but could get none to be rend therein. Ten months 
having thipaed be svas exchanged. He then moved the 
Earl of Essex to grant him a pass to go to Hurting to abide 
on his own liinJ, which was refused; so he was forced, about 
two years since, to go to the King's quarters, liis land being 
sequestered, hia personal estate taken away, and hia mansion 
spoiled. Being at Winchester when Sir Ralph Hopton 
marched into Sussex, he went with him to endeavour to get 
rent of b!s teuants, but without success; and he was at 
Winchester when it- was taken by Cromwell, wlio gave him 
a free piiss. He denied having contributed money or men

estates, he was seized of an estate"^ in the manors of 
'^Itchingliam" and Salehiirst, in Sussex, of the annual value 
of £430 ICs. lOd. 

And also of the Manor of Bowlcy, and Downeaah, and other 
lands in this county, of the annual value of £485 10e.> snh- 
jeot to an annuit/ of £100 per annum to John Nutt,

Sir George Strode was buried at Etchingham, and his 
helmet, crest, and pennon were still in the situth aisle of the 
nave^ when the ehuirli was vislttd hy the Sussex Arch, 
Society in 185(}, before the " i-estoration." 

Etchingham had been purchased of the Tyrwhitta, one of

Osenbridges, who hod inherited from the Eehinghams (see 
Pedigree S. A. Gill. VoL vi'ii., p. 230)- It remained in the 
Strode family for some time. In 1684, Sir George Strode, Knt., 
left an only son, Lytton I-ytton. His widow married Charlt^s 
Selby, and be, as her administrator, took the case of Selby v. 
Lytton and others rehLtive to these estates, to the Ifouse of 
Lords, where it was heard, in 1724; and the estates were 
then sold. 

William Lord Craven, whose house was at Boreham, 
succeeded to the estates of John Lord Craven, and en 7th 
May, HJ51 (after the serpieslration of these estates), Henry 
Thurnham, son of the Kev, Edward Thurnham, of All

of captives from Algiers; the said manor being conveyed by 
the said Spencer to William Lord (Jravcu, and hU heirs, 
upon the same trust was sequestered as the proper estate of 
the said Lord Craven- 

The petitioners having no other means of subsistence, 
prayed that the sequestration might be discharged." 

On 21st Oct., lti5l,arcport was made upon the potitioiV^ 
setting forth that Jobn Lord Craven, Baron of Ityson, by 
will dated 28th May, 1647^ gave to his executor all his htnda

maintenance of four poor scholars, preference to be given to 
any of his name or kindred, to ceoae atW fourteen years' en-

tlie remainder of the revenue yearly raised of such lands to 
be bestowed in the redemption of English captives in Algiers, 
to be disposed of by the Lord Mayor and Recorder of London, 
and the master of Sutton's Hospital. The executor (Uichard 
Spencer) renounced 26th Tebniary, 1647-8, and administra- 
tion was granted to William Lord Craven. The scholars have 
produced the several instruments of their election. 

The number of scholarships in each university lias been 
increased to fiix, and the stipend raised to £80 each ; tlie 
term of enjoyment being reduced-

hook, which 1 had for some time loat, and which I promised 
to send you, respecting an execution at Horsham; luid as I 
do not remember ever reading of a similiir case, I thought an 
itccouut of it might possibly be read with interest by you* 
The aecouat is taken trom a pamphlet, printed in the yejir 
iyi3, cutitled, * The Debate in the House of Commons, 
April 5th, 1813, upon Sir Samuel Komilly's Bill, ou the 
punishment of treason. By Basil Montague, Esq. ; published 
by Longman & Co»' After tjuoting the sentence of ptiuish- 
ttteiit, Mr, Montague adds in li note, that ^ the la^t iidlictiun 
of thia sentence was probably in the year 1735.' 

*' The pamphlet goes cu to say :—' Monday, August 4th, 
1735, at the Assizes at Lewes, in Susses, a man who pre- 
teiided to be dumb and liime, was indicted for a barbarous 
murder and robljery. He had been taken up on suspicion, 
eeveral spots of blt>od and part oi' the goods having heeu found 
on liim, 

*' * When he waa brought to the bar he would not speak or 
plead, though often urgtd to it, and the sentence iullicted ou 
those who stand mnle read to liim. Four or five persons ia 
court swore that they had heard him speak ; and a boy, 
who waa bis accomplice, and apprehended, was there to he u 
witness agiiinat him ; yet he continued mute. On whieh ho

There seemod* therefore^ good, reason to hope thiit, from the 
mass of information to be found in the Archiopiscopa-l 
records abotit SHndon House, somelliing rai/^ht be gathered 
which «"oiild throw light on the history of Slindon Church. 

Nothing of the kind, however, ciin lie ilisc-iivered. The 
building probaMy )vl\raya ranked as a humble village church, 
and, thougli attflched to the Archie[)isco|ml mEinor, was not 
of sHtiUcient imporUmce to uttract remark, [t would be, 
architecturuliy, less im|>ortiint than now ; wfien the great 
Conventual and Collegiate estahli*ihinents of Boxgrove, and 
Anmdcl, hard by, were in their fiitl splendour. The some- 
what elaborate painted decoration, which we shall have to 
notice, with which it was adorned, wa3 nothing remarkable in 
those days, and ^vas p^srhaps sharisd with many village 
churches in rhe neighbonrhood of even less pretensions, 

Tu learn the history of the edifice, therefore, we must, in 
the absence of documentary evidence, go to the building itself, 
and read it fiom the crumbling walls. 

The architectnrul history of the church, as r,tr tia one ctiii 
learn it from that source, may be stated as follows' : — 

1. There was a \orinan church, perhaps built by Abp. 
Anaelra, on recovering;; the estate— at all events^ bniU about 
that time, It consisted, probably, of a snmll nave and 
cbanccl only. The nave extended only as far as the second 
buy, inclusive of the pi-esent church, and the old fonudatioos 
shown on the plan across the church at this point, no doubt 
mark the site of the original west wall of the church. Of 
this buildingj we liave only one Ibature remaining — a little 
lancet window, high up in the wall, on the north side of tbe 
nave, which was discovered during the works now in pro- 
gress. This little window is round-headed, and splayed all 
round inside. There ia no reveal or groove for glazing, but 
the splay of the jumb runs out to a feather edgu on the out- 
side of the wall, 

2. About 1160-1170, during the transition from Norman 
to Grotliir, architecture, tlie south wall of Abp. Anselm's 
Nave was taken down, an arcade of two arches built in it3 
place, and a south aisle added to the ohurob. About the

game time, but a few years later, & chapel was bu'ilt on the 
north of the ntive, in the form of a transept, and clerliuuteJ 
to St. Thomas Becket.* To throw this chapel open to the 
nave» a small arcli* was pierced through the north wall of 
Anselm's navc> It appears, also, that soma alterations wcr^^ 
made in the chancel, or even that it was rebuilt at this 
period. The surviving archttectural features of tliis date are 
the two eiisternmost arches of the south nave arcade, the 
easternmost arch in the north arcade, and a small lancet ta 
the chancel, which was discovered during the works [marked 
on the plan, B), There are traces, faintly discernible, on the 
north wall, opposite this window, which seem to show that 
there hfis once been a corresjtonding window there- To this 
period 1 attribute the beautiful coloured decorations of the 
nave, of which an iUustrnnion is given. The font also 
belongs to the end of the twelfth or heginning of the thirtaenth 

3- Dnring the thirteenth century the chancel was entirely 
remodelled. The earlier lancet windows in the side walls 
were blocked, and larger lancet windows inaerted. It is aUo 
probable that the chaucel was now lengthened one hay east- 
wards; but of this it is impossible to speak conliclently. 

4- In the fifteenth centnry the ehureli was fitudly brought 
to its presentsize. The west wall of Abp. Anselm's church 
was removed, and a bay ndded to the church, by carrying the 
nave walls about 15ft. further westward, with an arch in 
each xvall. The south aisle ^\as lengthened a correspondirg 
distHnce, and a north aisle was added. The latter addition 
made it necessary to open an arch in the only remaining part 
of Ahp, Anselm's fabric^ namely, that part of the north 
wall of the nave, which intervened between the small arch 
leading to Becket's chiipel, nnd the new arch to the west of 
it. It is curious to tnice the reasons which occasioned the

irregularity ao reraarlcable in this oortli :trcadc of the n^tve, 
of which even the two contemporary arches vary consider- 
ably in diraeosions. The architect resolved t<j make tbe 
north mid suiith iirches of liia new buy exactly L'.urre- 
spend with one another in span juid height ; he also dedded 
to retain the small arch in the eastern part of the north 
wall, which led into Deckel's chape!. Now, this nreh is not 
ojilj narrower, but is altogether farther to tbe east than the 
arc li opposite, in the south urcnde, having scarcely any respond 
at all on Its Rast side- Having, therefore, this small and 
distant arch in the east» and being unwilling to widen his 
new nrch in the west, he bad a very long intervening space 
to deal with ; hence he was forced to design the central arch 
of this arcade on a mnch larger scale than the rest, and even 
then he was forced to leave very mossivti piers between the 

The north wall of tlie new aisle was continued parallel to 
the nave walls, and that ]3urt of Becket's chapel which pro- 
jected beyond this line was demolished, 

Iloth aisles hiul two light' square -headed windows in the 
side walls, probably like the windows now remaining at the 
east end of each aisle, which were inserted at the same dulo. 
^he side walla must, therefore, have been of a considerable 
height, and the aisles nuist have been covered with roofs of a 
\ery ilat pilch, instead of beijjg, as now, under a roof that 
covers both nave and aisles with one steep, unbroken slope- 
Indeed, tbe construction of the present roof made itnecessaiy 
to take down the upper parts of the aisle walls, and with 
them tlie window heads. 

The stone jambs and mullions now run up and stop against 
the wall plates, 

A tower was built at this period at the west end of the 
Dave, not in tbe position of the present tower, but moi'c to 
the north. The foundations still exist. This tower opened 
into the church by a pointed door, now blocked, and the door 
leading into tbe present lower, which lias a lofty and efiective 
inner arch» was then the west entrance of the church. Above 
it was evidently a large perpendicular window, of wbict the 
inner jambs and cill have been discovered on removing ihe 
plaster from the west wall.

There is no chancel arch remaining* From certain 
pcculiuritiL^3 of the masonry behind the wooden posts that 
flank the nioilem opening between the nave and clianccl, it 
would aeera probable that the original Norman church bod a 
very narrow clianctl arch, andtlmtat the time of the restonu 
tion of the church in the transitional period the blank spaces .^ 
in the gallc wall, right and left of the Qtch, were cut back into 
two recesses, forming pkces for altars. The thin masonry 
left at the back may have been further pierced with squints. An 
example of this arrangement may be seen in the little churcli 
at Eartham^ close by blindon, and something like it (though 
it had been much tampered with) formerly existed at Made- 
hurst. At all evtjnls there was found at each eide the 
springing of what had Icen an arch in form, though not in 
constrnctiun, having merely been cut cut. in rough rubble 
masonry. The arched form therefore could only have lit^cn 
of a very narrow span. The same coloured difjper was carried 
over the front, back, and sofBt of this rectss, which was found 
on all the transitional work. 

It only remains to speak of the colouring. Coloured 
decoration of various dates was found in nearly all parts of 
the church. That of wliich an example is given is the 
earliest. It haa been found on the three transitional arches 
and tlieir spandril walls, and on the east wall of the south aisle,

TTinBonry. It was only found in one other part of the church* 
and its discovery there waa very interesting. When the 
north aisle wall, which was very ruinous, wn.s recently taken 
down, n piece of masonry whs finind etjiliedded in it, which 
had once been part of an older wall that run in the contrary 
direction, i, e.^ north and south, instead of east and west. 
This old wall hnd been the west side of the demolished chapel 
dedicated to St, Thomas Eecket. It presented a regular 
face on both sides, that to the west hnving been an external 
face, and that t-o the east being plast*!red and painted with 
the identical diaper of which we have been speaking. There 
was also painting on that port of the east wall of the aiele 
which had been similarly concealed by the thickness of the 
later wall, abntting oguinst it. Further exatiutiation led to 
tile discovery oi" sonic traces of the foundations of this chapel, 
while miirks of a gable against the nave arcade showed that 
it had been roofed like a transept, t. «., with the ridge at 
right an)Tles to the axis of the nave. 

The decorations of which we have been speaking begin 
Ebont four feet from the floor, with a bonier of zigzagt^ 
between horizontal lines. Above thatn, the wall is divided by 
duuble horizontal and vertical lines into a sort of ^* stoning, ' 
the vertical lines being arranged so as to break lK)nd. Ail 
these lines and zigzags are of a hrowiiish red colour. Each 
of the rectangular compartments thus formed is fitted with a 
spray of Ibliage of a dark olive green. These sprays of foliage 
are very elegant, and are nil done by hand, not stencilled in 
the modern way; so that they are full of life and variety- 
The lines of the '^ stoning," too, appear not to havci been rnted 
in, but drawn by hand. This system of decoration is carried 
indiacriujinately over flat wall snrfiices, arch stones, and 
Boffits, On rubble walls and chalk ashhir it is painted upon 
a thin floating coat or " int<mcco'* of excellent plaster. On 
the Caen stone of the north nich it seems to be put imme- 
diatdy, without any plaster whatever. 

The later colouring is very inferior in design, as far as 
any design could be made ont, and has been executed with 
much less attention to dnrability. Indeed, it was so temper, 
that it would not bear toucliiug after the whitewash had 
been removed. ThiSj on the whole, was fortunate^ for, in 

3 2 



many cnsee where tlie later decoration hfid been carried over 
tlieeai'liprpjtinting^ so us to obliterate it^ tb(^ Lit^^r Jcconttion 
was easily removeil, and the eflrlier painting came out fresh 
and perfect. The ayskm adopted for this later decoration 
(which appears lo hove been done in the 15 th century) was 
to paint the soffits of the inner orders of the great arches 
and the chamfers of the out^r orders red. The spundril 
Willis were tlien pnintcil with figure subjects, which were 
drftwij with lines of brown-red and blnck, and filled in with 
broad surfaces of ochre. The treatment was of the rudest 
and most extravagant kind, as far as it could be understood 
at all. 

There jire srtme other points of interest in the clnirch. 
In the chancel, on the north side, is a htte recessed tomb, 
with a very flat, fonr-ccntred arch. Under this canopy lies 
a wooden efBgy of a man in armour.*' On the opposite side 
of the chancel, under tlie easternmost window, is a very 
simple and pretty piscina, with a trifoliated head. 

Of the old enst wnll of the church, only the lower half 
remains* The rest is of half timltcr noggin, and containfl & 
debased window. On the plastering of the old part are 
three circles eontaining crosses, that look like consecration 
crosses. These are painted in red. 

The roofs are all modem, nnd wretchedly bad. 

It may not be amiss to add a few particulars about the 
restoration of this church, which is now (llaroh 14rth) 
nearly completed. 

The aisle walls, which were in a very dilapidated and 
insecure sttite, have been rebuilt on better foundations. The 
founrlations of the nave arcEide piers and of the chancel 
walla have been underpinned, and the latter, which are 
considerably out of the pei-pendicular, have been made 
aeeure by bultressea. 

A new esst window of five lancets has been inserted, and 
a new chancel arch built. The tower, which had formerly a

belfry and spire of painted deal, has now been finished 
with a belfry of stone, and a shingled spire. A new vestry 
has been added at the west end of the south aisle. The 
church haa been re-roofed throughout, and covered with red 

The church is also to be warmed, and to be fitted through- 
out with low open seats, and the old high pews and gallery 
with which it was disfigured have been removed. A new 
south porch is to be added, and a new pulpit has been pre- 
sented to the church. The whole of the interior walls will 
be plastered afresh, except where the old colouring remains. 
It is believed that it will be possible to preserve all that is 
left of this interesting and b^utiful decoration.

This holstery, which was erecti?d in 1533, und pulled down 
in the months of July and August hist year (18(30), havin^^ 
been for nmny years discontinued as an inn, stooil on the east 
side of the Market-phice, or, as it is now sometiniea called, 
the Market-square ; it having been of late yeai's more of h 
st|Uiire than It was at the time this tuveni was built. The 
Market-place is its more aucient name ; for we find it so 
called cariy in the reign of Charles L With regard to its 
style of architecture, it was, like most of the other houses 
standing in and about the same Market-place and town gone- 
rally, timber framed — a mo"lc of house construction decidedly 
the most picturesqne, if not the most dnriihle, of any adopted 
in this country , and for which the large quantity of timber

and whose sack and egg-posset mast be browwl in the most 
approved Quickleian manner. In short, tlie*' Gi'ejit George" 
waa the principal honse of public reception and amusement 
for the townspeople and strangers in the place. To any one 
surveying it from the Morket-place, it did not prcsenta very 
imposing trout ; still, it was large and commodiou^^ the prin- 
cipal part of it being a huihling situated behind this, mid 
running parallel with the part in front; the two being con- 
nected by means of a covered passage. From a poie pro- 
jecting horizontidly from the front, within the memory of 
persons now living, a square signboard was suspendijil, on 
which was depicted, in a rather rude, but at the same time bold 
slylt', tlie redoubted Champion of Englanil, iiis rumpant hursc 
being represented as all fire and fury; and, in appearance, in 
the act of endeavouring to aid his courageous master in his 
encount^jr with his formidable enemy, by striking his eido 
with his fore-feet; such enemy lieiug a dragon-iaonsler, into 
whose capacious niouth, bristling with a fearful set of^harply- 
pointed t«eth^ St. George has juat thrust his gigantic spear, 
leiiving in i:;jagination the victory over him complete. On 
his head St. Geor^ife ha*! a helmet, surmounred with a large 
pliirue of ostrich furthers; and a nunile, fastened to hia neck, 
which fcM gracelidly over hia shoulders und body, complut^d 



the picture. Altogether, liewjvs exhibital to the public quite 
as the Siiinterl ChiiiupioTi of this invincible country should 
be— noble in his appearance, end feai'lesa in his bearing. 

The following references will make the leading objects of 
interrist in the Petworth Market-iilcce at this early date more 
easily recognise*! ; — 

(a) Is the Great George Inn. 

(b) The alley; this waa probably the akittlc, or, perhaps, 

bowhng alley ; the game of bowls being, during the 
eiglileenth and nineteenth centuries, so popular a 
pnstiuie^ that no inn of any note would be without 
such an alley. Flaying at skittles was also a 
favourite arauseuienl. 

(c) Is the waggoner's yard; being eo eaJled bccauBc more 

wag*;ona thun cnrriages usually put up there for the 
night, waggons Ix^iag, from tlie bad state of the 
roads, more generally adopted, two centuries ago, 
for the transJer of passengers and goods from one 
place to another, than any other mode of con- 

(d) Is Golden Square, 
ie) Darner's Bridge, 
(/) The old Market House, wbicli wa,s a rather long 

timber and plaater-constructed building, unenclosed 
below, but having an enclosed room above, which 
was devoted to th*? double purpose of a Town-hall 
and Court of Justice. Assemblies for dancing 
were, I believe, never held there. This room was 
supportett by stout upright balka of timber, the 
braces of which, being morticed into those supports, 
and meeting in the centre of the space obove, gave 
them tlie appearuuce of arches. From the roof 
of this building arose a square boardwl turret, 
which carried the faces of the Town clock, and 
was surmounted by a weathcr-vnue. This, doubt- 
less from the fitiflhtfis naturally incident to old 
age, rarely dlschui-ged tlie duties of its oilice truth- 
fully ; and hence probubly arose the pro verbird saying, 
current years back in the neighbiiiu'hoo*], *'as false 
as the Petworth wcalhcr-cuck," Uebiud the Market 



House 3tood one of Parson Edmond's condaibs, by 
means of which this part of the town was supplied 
with water (see Vol. XIV., p. 23.) In the open 
spAct! of this huiUling the weekly corn-market was 
hi'ld, until it wiistuken down ami rebiitlt witJi stone 
by thttt liberal'hear ted nobleman, the Eari of Egre- 
mont, in 1793- The new building was, like the old 
one, open beneath, until within u tew yeiirs from this 
time, when, being no longer required for the pur- 
poses of a niiirket^ it wiis enclosed by the present 
noble proprietor of the Lordship of Petworth, Lord 
Lcconficld, and the area converted into spacious 
rooms for the accommodation of the Petworth 
Subacpiption Reading Society, sind Working Men's 
" - Institute, It had long ceased to be used as a 

Market- House. 
(9} la the Bull-ring; and 
(h) The Whipping -post. 

TJiesc two last objects of archieological interest in the old 
town do not apeak much in favour of the intelligence and 
high moral condition of its inhabitants in the prosperous 
days of the Great George lun. Bull-baiting, indeed, and 
cock -shying, are well known to have been very generally kept 
up as popular pfLslimes (see VoU T,p, 68, note); theformerin 
the Miirkct-pluce, und the latWr at the curner of the Tilling' 
ton Road, even so late as the commencement of the present 
century, when, through tiie interference of the late Earl of 
Egremont, these barbarous and cruel practices were put a 

BtOp to. 

At the close of the seventeenth and at the commencement 
of the eighteenth centui-ies, bull-kuting in Whitsun-week, 
and cock-shying on Shrove Tuesday, were considered legiti- 
mate amusementa, particularly bull-baiting, which was annu- 
ally practised at the Bear-garden, at Hockley -in- the- Hole, on 
Wliit Monday, aa appears by the following posting-biU, which 
is to he found among the Hiu'leian papers in the British 
Museum. The date of its issueis 1710: —

Bull-ljaiting mny have been tolerated so long as it appears 
ta hnvc been in this country, notwithstanding its csondcmna- 
tion as a demoralising and cruel practice, from the circum- 
stance that, by a aiuat extraordinary municipal regulation of 
mcKlern dale, a butcher was proliibited frona killfug a bull, 
until he had been well baited ; and whenever and wherever 
the flesh of a baited bull was exposed for sale, the butcher, by 
an old customi was in the habit of burninf^ a candle on his 
BhanibleB> Whether corporate bodies were iiapressed withtbe 
notion that bull-beef is made more tender and palatable by the 
previous persecution to which the poor lieast was obliged to 
submit — as the Hcsh of a hunted hare is thought by epicures 
to be preferable to one tlmt has been killed with a gun, or 
snared — or whether it was the result of an anxious desire oa 
their part to gratify the towris[ieople under their nutnicipal 
control, by taking out of the abacltledand doome*! aniiuid the 
entertainment which, in the course of a few hours, he would 
no longer bo capable of affording, I am unable to determine. 
Both of these causes might possibly have operated so as to 
lead them to give their authoritative sanction to so barbaroui 
a custom. Of the former, they are proverbially siijipcsed to 
be excellent judges ; and popularity amongst those to whoni 
they are indebted for the brief authority they possess, is not 
unlikely to have iaeen with tbem a powerful actuating motivo 
in this mutter, DoubtlesSj the abolition of these brutal ex- 
hibitions, ami uf the wliipping-post, is mainly to Ije attributed 
to an improved state of discipline and feehng, wliicb mental 
cultivation, and greater self-rci^pcct, would naturally give rise 
to i and this bus resulted in the establishment of a Reading 
Society, and a Workmen's Institute in Petwcrtb, from whenog 
has arisen more elevjited and refined habits of thinking and 
acting, and a necessity for amusements of a more rationnl :ind 
improving kind. As the lower orders became more Intel- 



Icctaa), nnd the higher "in thoughts more elevate," bull- 
l»aitiag anJ cock-shjing would n^ longer 1)9 emlureJ aa a 
pastime; Bor would the whipping- post be any longer needed 
for the purpe^se of public and summary punishment* 

But to return to the history of tJie Great George Inn, the 
more immediate subject of my present paper, from which I 
have been led — I think not unjustifmbly — somewhat to 
digmaa* I will here mention that some of the houses which 
st*>od about it, particularly on the western and aoulhern sides, 
nre omitted in the general view of the Market-place, to admit 
of a clearer and better idea being obtained of it, and its strnc- 
ture, than could otherwise bavL* bet;n bad, and I shall now 
proceed to give in detail a abort account of some of the must 
interesting parta of such structure. The inn, it wii! be borne 
in mind, waa in ics arohitectural form likt; the letter H; that 
is, it conaLsted of an eastern and western wing, the western 
fronting to tho Market-place; the two being connected by a 
somewhat muTower building, cimsisting priucfpally of a pas- 
sage and staircase^ and canned atright angles troni one to the 
other, about midway. 

Of the etchings, taking the general view of the Market- 
place as No, 1^ Nc. 2 will give an idea of that part of the 
building which wjia tj be st'en. from the alley (i) ; iiud which 
could not be shewn in the general view. It is intended to 
exhibit the picturesque old gables and chimneys of that poi't 
of the inn, the sight of which was not intercepted by the 

No. H shews the inner side of the same eastei'n wing — the 
part, that is, which faced the court-yaixl — representing it as it 
appeared after the removal of the western wing, and the 
central or connecting part of the building; the position of 
which is indicated by the dotted lines, marking the angle of 
the roof, &c., and shewing that this central pai't was not quite 
so high as the two wings. 

No. 4 shews the eastern, or inner front of the western wing, 
with the arched entrance passage, leading from the Miu"ket' 
place into the court-yard of the hosteliy. it had^ lu will be 
Been by the gable and window, a small room over it. This 
front has of latt: hetn iiiueh oljSLurcd by a new front of 
bricks and stucco, which has been given to the adjoining 

1 2 



house on the nortliora sWe ; the southern end of which is 
shewn in the illuslmtion No. 3, as well as in this, and wbicli 
runs parallel with it. 

No. 5 gives the outer, or western front of tho same wing — 
the front, that is, which is seen from the Jlarkot-place, This 
front has been considerably modernised, hiiviiig >>een entirely 
new faced vritli hricks and stucco since the house lias been dis- 
contimied as an inn, and the windows altered and enlarged, to 
adapt it to the pnrposea of an ironinongcr's shop» The ele- 
vation of this part of the houao is considerably l>elow tlie 
louBes on each side of it. 

The woodciit which forms the titil-piece of my article, is 
a representation of one of four oaken hntckcts, which sup- 
ported the sills of the windows of tlie eaatcrn fiicc of No, 4. 
It is given, not os it was originally, but as it appeared when 
the building was taken down ; the pattern being made good 
to shew its truly Sussex character. Its dimensions are fourteen 
inches in length, hy seven inches in widtlu The windowsof the 
shop in front are supported in a similar manner by six brackets 
in each window; the two outside brackets being carYod with 
an oak-branch sitniUr to the one under consideration, but the 
intermediate supports being plain blocks only. The out«r of 
these were^ beyond a doubt, the bracket'^ of the old honse 
windows before the house was new fronted, but which have 
been reduced in size, so as to obtain a plain surfaoe, for faci- 
litating the embedding of a portion of them in the walls, 
Sevi!U inches^ therefore, only wereexposed to view at the time 
of the demclitiun of the building. The wny in which they 
were reduced is shown by the horizontal line» 

Running north and south through the whole length of the 
Market-place and Golden-square, whs a large open <lrain, 
which appears to have been the mahi dram of this pjirt of 
the town, and to have discharged the filth flowing into if-, and 
carried off by it, into a dili^h at or near to DanierVbridge. 
The course of this open aewer is shewn in the etching of the 
general plan. The sanitary condition of the town was not so 
much studied then as is the caee at the present day> Our 
forefathers could tolerate what would now tie looketl upon as 
ft grievous nuisance; and infmitelj pn^ferred a surface tn an 
imdergrjund drain, as more easily kept clean- >iow, such a 




sewer as ttis would arouse the npprehensions of every iu- 
lutbitant, nod the Sanitjr^ Act be ut oou^ Lruugbt to bear 
upon it, 

in an old rate-book, preserved id the Petworth parish chest, 
end dated 168J, the Great GcorgQ Inn is slated to have been 
at that time cccapied by a Mr, Eemin^toa ; aad the rate he 
was called upon to pay upon that occasion was 5d. And in 
the rtign of Qu^ea Anne, tlte ** Great George " is described 
as the principal itm in Petworth, 

It mnat be borne io mind, that the uac of a tavern in a 
country town b very different now from what it was in the 
flourishing days of the Great George Inn. Two centuries 
ago there was but little travelling, and there could have be^^n 
but few wayfurers to frequent it- Fur its princlpid means of 
support^ it would depend on the town itself, and its jovial in- 
habitants^ who tlien constituted a large class. Taverns of this 
kind wore frequented by the better class of a town far more 
than by the lower order of the people. Business at an end 
for the day, here the gentry and the better class of trades- 
men met in social conclave to discuss piUtics, or to talk 
of the news. And sad, I feel hound to add, were the scenes 
of riot and excess which took place almoat nightly in what 
was then designated '*the Upper Room" of an inn. The 
quaint old Earle — and here I must caution the reader against 
thinking that 1 am alluding to any one of the Lllustrioufl and 
potent Earls, who held the honour of Petworth from an 
early period, and whose names are distinguished in the annals 
of tbeir country as benefactors to it, both at home and abroad, 
■^both in peace and in war — both as statesmen and as 
soldiers — for this is not the case. The Earle I am speaking 
of was a writer of that name, who lived early in the acvcn- 
teenth century, and among whose works ia a small duodecimo 
volume, entitJed '* Micn>cosraographic; or, a Piece of the 
World Discovered, in Essays and Clianiet^irs," of which there 
are about 77> The copy, fi-oin which I am about to give an 
extract^ is described aa "the fift edition, much enlarged," 
and was publighed by Edward Blount in 1629. The 
eighteenth of these short essays and characters is headed *' A 
Tavern;" and in it he gives in his quaintly facetious iind 
plain- speaking manner, too true a picture, I fear, of the hahits 



and manners of the period in which 
was his object to censure lliiJ reform, 
he saya — 

he lived, and which it

following coins, seventeen in number, were found* >Vitli the 
exception of two or three, they are of no great arehroological 
interest or value. The most worthy of notice is a Romaa 
coin^ the legend of which is partinlly worn away ; enough, 
however, i^emnins to shew that it is a coin of Victorinus, who 
is included by Trehelliua PolUo in his list of the thirl' 



tyrants, wIjo ruled In tte various dependencies of the Roman 
Stttte, Juring the time it was disiniiiubercd from tim Empire 
under the feeble reign of the iiabecile son of Valerian, vio 
torinus was the third that ruled the province of Giml, having 
previously been the colleague of his predecessor, Posthumua, 
He is spokea of as a man of singularly good abilitit^ and as 
posfitssing many of the highest qmilifications of a general and 
statesmen. On the cibverae of this coin ia a wdl-execuled 
head of the Emperor, adorned with the customary diadem of 
the period in which he lived, and the following legend i — 


And on the reverse is a femalo figure, the legend nrouod which 
is illegible. This coin is a good speeimen of the art of en- 
graving in Rome, at the time it was struck, which must have 
been about the year of grace 268; for he met with the fate 
of moat tyrants, having been assassinated by one of hia 
officers, whom he had most grossly injured and insulted, 
shortly after he had completed his first year's reign. It was 
found embedded in some cement still adhering to u portion of 
the old foundation walls, and with which it appears to have 
been faced. This curious cb^cumstance leads very naturally 
to the inference that this must have been Roman walling; 
and that the "Great George" had been erected on the foun- 
dations of some Roman buildings which had previously stood 
here. And when we consider the nearness of Petworth to the 
site of the Roman ViDa at Bignor, and to the Roman Via 
called Stane-fltreet, it ceases to he remarkable that Roman 
remains should be found in and about it. This coin is of 
middle brass. 

The other coins found were a silver coin, about the size of 
a shilling, the impression of which ia effaced, <!)f the legend, 
nil that remains is the three letters FRA. This is supposed 
to have been a coin of one of the fii^t three Edwards^ but to 
me it appeal's much more likely to have been of the reign of 
Charles Lor II. 

Acoppti coin, the impression of which is also nearly effaced, 
but having tlic appearance of a penny of Charles I. 

Also ahallpennyof William III, (William and Mary), dated 



16y7; four halfpennies of George IlL, dated 1775; and a 
mill-edged halfpcimy of tho seliqc reign, dutod 1806. 

Three furtliiugs of the reign of Charles ]L; two dated 
1673, and one 1674. Also three fartbinga of the reign of 
George 11,, all of them of the date 1737. 

Three tokens were also found; one of them was a locftl 
token of William Manser, Qimitar to that described in Vol. 
XVTm P- 309, note 3; the other two were halfpenny tokens 
of North Wsiles, which had prohubly been left by Welsh 
cattlc' drovers frequenting the Great George Inn, 

These coins and tokens are all in the possession of Mr. 
"William Knight. 




The reception of Janies^ Pukeof Monmuutli, at Cliichester, 
in 1G79, tias been Larnxted in an iatcreating contemporary 
letter, which ia given in Vol, VII., pp. 168 to 172 of the 
" Stissex Arch 020 logical Collections;'' nnd the original of 
whii*h is to be found among the Tanner manuscripts, in the 
Bodleian Lihrarjj Oxford, Strong party feelings were at 
that time manifested in many phices, and bad extended them- 
selvea to Chictcst<;r. Great etforts wcrt made to elect mem- 
bers favourable to Protestantism, while the Duke of Monmoutli 
was invited down to Sussex, to fitrengthea by his presence

Portsmouth. The route is^to Lord Dorset's in Kent; from 
thence to the Speaker's^ ia Susses ; antl hy will return back 
by Lord Sc-arboroiigh's," * 

At this time (reorge L wus in Hiinover, and the Prince ofj 
Wales (afterwards George II.) wus entrusted with the govern- 
ment in his absence. Through the jealousy of his father he 
had been denied the title of Regent, arid received only lliat 
of Guardian of the Reitlui, luid Lieutenant, ^^ His every ^^ 
st«p, every word^ were then most suspiciously watched, and^H 
most severely acrutiniacd." The reason of his notatnyiugat \

'' linste," since lie was at that time desirous of gaining in-^f 
fliience in the county. " Less cold and r<^s<?rved in deiiieiinour^^

In ft former volume of our Collections' I have noticcJ the resi- 
dence in Rye of Protestant rGfuge*'s in the days of Elizabeth 
and Charles L At an c?!Lrlic?r period (1,525) the town had 
iiinnng its resident trailera several who were iklit^iis. 

The Scots were then not only aliens, hut in consequence 
of the hostility between the two kingdoms tbey were looked 
upon, fis his been seen^, with peculiar jealousy; and Rye had 
its Contingent of men born north of the Tweed, 

The Purlhimentof 1523 (14an*J 15 Henry VIIL), famous 
fill- having passed the Statute of Willa, and incorporated the 
College of Fhysidans, is nlso wdl known for its grant, after a 
severe debate of sixteen dayfi,of a subsidy to the King (cap. IG) 
of one half of what he had demanded. That subsidy extended 
to the lunds, and personals, and wages of aliens, from Avhoni 
the tax was double the amount charged upon natives^; the 
reasons for the subsidy being the hostileconduct of the French 
King, Francis L 

Indeed, this Parliament was very hard upon the aliens, 
for by another Act (cap, 2), no alien joiner, pouL'h-iuaker, 
ci>operj or blacksmith was thenceforth Lo be allowed to take 
an alien apprentice, or keep more than two aliens as joiirney-

or in any city, borouf^h, or town corporate, they were to be 
under the search of the Wardens and Fellowships of the same 
ImnJicnifts, with tine Huljstantisil striinger^ who should be fl 
lioasi.^holder; hut they mightj if hauseholders^ retain the 
journeymen and apprentices then with them. Lords of Parlia- 
raent and others hnving lands and leneiuents to the yearly 
valuG of £100, might receive, and take and retain stranger 
joiners and glaziers from time to time. 

The subsidy was to be paid in four years. Aliens were 
to pay two shillings in the pound upon their lands^ and on 
personals of the value of twenty pounds; eiglitpeiice in tbe 
pound was to be taken from those receiving yearly wages, 
and eightpen:^f yearly from thusa not otherwise rateable. 
These sums were to be paid for the first two yeai"8, reduced 
sums being payable for the remainder of the term.

be found among the Lay Subsiilies* contain the names and

The large number of those who paid the elghtpence head 
money, shows that the workmen were not paid yearly wages; 
and possibly therefore were only temporarily employed in the 
town. Those who paid for goods were settled tradesmen.

the Tables at the latter end contain ttlso all the names of

them. And npnii the whule, the tniveller is here furnisht^d, 
at sniiill expense, with a guide, that will comlric-t biin 
through oil the principal roiids of England: great care has 
been taken in cori-ecting the press, so that it is hoped no 
capital faults have escaped." 

'Ihe distances of the roada front London are measured. 
from the Standiird in Comhill; the Standard mile adopted 
being 1760 yards, or 8 furlongs. The roads meiiaured and 
described are 73 in number, of which 31 are from London, 
and 42 from capital to capital. Of the 73 road?, 5 only are 
in Sussex; of these, four are from London, viz., I, from 
London to Arnndel ; 2, fronj London to Newhaven, with a 
continuation to Shoreham ; 3, from London to Rjej 4, from 
London to Chichester ; 5, from Oxford to Chichester, which 
passed through a sniaU portion only of that part of Weetern 
Suases whieh borders on Hsimpshire. 

As in ( ^gilhj'sdescriplion of these roads, there is much de- 
serving of the notice of the Sus&c^x Archaeologist, not only as 
shewing their deep ami miry, and in many plaees impassable 
state, even so late as the end of the Roventeeiith, and, per- 
haps, to the middle of the eighttvuth century — Ogilby more 
than once advises the traveller quietly, and 1 have no doubt 
wisely, to break oil' the road either to tlie right hand or to 
the left, to avoid the mud— hut also as shewing the state of 
Susses with regard to towns, villages, gcnllcrocu's seats, cul- 
tivation, ic, &c. ; as well as the circuitous routes the 

X 2 



traveller was often obliged bo take to accomplish his journey 
through some parts of the county. It also enews its criininul , 
condition at that time, *'the gallows" being a frcqiieut^fl 
mark of direction to the wayfarer. I propose, then, to give^^ 
Ogilby's tlescription of iLose parts of his rojids which puns 
through SussRx, *hat it may be seen what perils and 
dangers our gruitdfnthcrs and grcat-grandJUthcrs were ex- 
posed to, and what difficuUies they hftd to encounter in their 
peregrinations from one place in the county to anoihen 1 
was doubtless iu refi^rence to these dangei's, that a Susst', 
man h said, at this early period, to have made his last will 
and testament, if he had not already done so, before he en- 
countered a journey to Lftndon ; that he gave directions forj 
his interment ; and that he took before he started an afiec- 
tiounte farewell of his wife and family- Of the hisiory ol 
the cuacbiiig days, fixmi Lewes to LonJon a century ago, Mr, 
ISlencowe gives us an amusing account. To his descriptions 
Ogilby adds a few historic notices. Few as the roads wci 
in his time, we are probably indebted to Susses being 
maritime county tor those few; and U is probably to the 
paucity of roads in Sussex during his rtign, that Ogilliy'i 
Koyal Patron owed his life, by tlie uninterruprcd facility il 
gave him of escaping to France.

is called "Britannia ; or, an Illustration of the Kingdom 
of England and Dominion of Wales 5 by a geogniphieal and

di mensuration, 55 miles and 4 furlongs. Continuation from 
Arundel to Cliidiester, 8 computed 5 10 miles 4 furlongs 
mcufiured miiea. Middlesex, Surrey, and Sussex include the 
whole road; and the Thames, Mole, Oke, Arun, and Lavatit, 
are the principal rivers passed over, affording nn indifferent 
way, but good entertainment. The road we describe is by 
Darking, jet some will pass Ly Hijrslnun, three or four miles 
to the left ; and others travel through the more frequented 
way, on the left to Dnrking, hy Stretham^ Mitchani, and 
Sutton, Thus much in geuenil. The turnings to be avoided 
are, in Sussex, for I omit those in 9njrr(?y and Middlesex, 
84 m. 7f. the left to Hnr^liam ; SS m. 2 f. the left by Sciew-

the acute way on the right to Kingston, Guildford and 
Portsmouth branches out ; and another at the gallows' to 
Stretham ; and thence to Lewes and Newhaven, by Croydon 5 
or t*> Arundel, by iloi-shain or Dm-king. Heuce over 
Clapham Heath, you come, at G m, 4 f,, to Towting-

gravcney, a villiige of 2 f." (Upper and Lower Tooting). 
*' Whence an indirect way brings yon, at 10 m, 2 f., to 
Moredon, another little villHge; and. leaving Nonsuch on the 
left— sometime a stately louse of the kings^ built by Henry 
VIIL — you paaa through Ewel, at 14 m.> a small market

King Ethelwald, sou of King Egburt, obtained an t-niinent 
victory over the Dnnes,^ leads by a small descent, at 30 m 7 f,, 
to Okewood Bridge, Then, ascending Okewood Hill, you 
enter Sussex at 33 m. 7 f. ; the forward way lending through 
Honey Lane, to avoid the dirtiness of which bear to the

two baylifis, electing parliament men, and it is the place 
where the county gaol is kept, omitting which you come to 
Hohook Village, where you have again a different way to the 
left. Hence througli a copse, at 36 m. 4 f,, you cross the 
Arun River, and leave Detsun IMace'' (DeJisham, in Hlinfold, 
formerly the seat of the Blounls) *' on the left, the last-

toward —Earls of Arundel, and Dukes of Norfolk — is seated 
on the east of (Jig Tfime^* (this is s. mistake for west of the

you pass throiigli the Old FUh Market and Watergate, by

Arundel Great Park to thtJ right, — the little one lying 
between Mary Gate and the Castle ; at 2 ni, 7 f., you

phiin, and on tbe same river, near its confluence with the sea. 
It is A city indifferent largo, contiiiuing four parish churches 
within the walls, besides the Cathedral, and one without 
Eostgate, and another without Westgatt' ; both demolished 
in tlie late Civil Wars. This City hath four gates, looking 
toward* the four Cardinal Points, to which the four princi- 
pal sti-eets lead, and are esilled E. Styect, W. Street, N- 
Street, and S. Street. 'Tis governed by a mayor, recorder, 
aldermen, Ac,; sends burgcascs to Parliament; hath two 
■welhfurnishel markets weekly— one on Wednesday, the 



Other on Saturday^ which are noted to be the greatest for fish 
in the county; and five fairs annuctUy, viz.j on April 23n 
Whitsun Monday, Jidy 25th, Michaelmas Day, and one nini

With regard to this road, it must have been at tins time 

much of it^ and particularly the Sussex part, ^' an indiflcrenj 
way," indeed; for besides the difficulty arising from the rmxi 
of Honey Lane, at the entrance into the county from' 

way, ' indeed; for besides the difficulty arising from the miia^|

ourrey, ro avoia waico ugnoy pruaenuy aiivises toe iravei-^j

the foot of the South Dawns must have been almost iiiipass-^^ 
able. In no part of tie county were the roada deeper in 
mud, even within my recollection, than in the northern part 
of Piilborough and the parishes westward of it; tliey were 
regular honey-pot lanes, all of th[?m. If you once got int o i 
them you would stjinil but little chance, in Sussex parlance, ** ^'^l 
getting cUan out of them again." A resident of Ditchling^* 
once told a relative of mine that he had gone " clean through" 
one of the worst Ittnes in Bolney; on which event my rela- 
tive congratulated him; adding that from her knowledge of 
the state of that and other lanes in the parish, she should 
have thought it impossible for him, or anyone else, to huvi 
done so. Charles, King of Spain, in a visit to Fetworl 
House, in 1703, was six hours in travelling the last nim 
miles. Nor were the roads in the eastern part of the couut; 
much Ijetter- At the time Sir Herbert Springett resided al 
Broyle Place, in Kingmer, so bad were the roads in that 
parialij that he was obliged to be drawn to chui'ch ou a 
Bunday by eight oxen. And Daniel de Foe, in hi^, 
Tour through Great Britain, which he published in 172' 
thus amusingly describes his journey from Tunbridge Weill 
to Lewes : —

There is a little confusion in this description- Afto 
ascemliiig the Downs by Clicking Hill, it would seem thiit 
the traveller wuuld pass tliruugli Westdenn firi^t, Hnd then 
Singleton, whereas the reverse is the case ; you first pa 
through Singleton and nfterwards Weatdean. 

It is somewhat sin^'ular, tliut, l>y piisslng over Bexl(> 
mil, this road would avoid Petwurth— with its pnucel 
mansion of the Dukes of Somerset, and its maniiincttiry 
cloth — altogether, leaving it about 5 miles to the loftn N 
does it even notice uny turning to it^ which tbere must hnv 
been at, or somewhere uboul the nearest point- 

Tliese four, ilien^ were all tlie roads out of London int^V 
Sussex in U»7ij, and they all went tn places on, or nenr^ 
the Sussex Coast; «nd through the Weald of Sussex tbes^H 
were almost impassable. Of the history and dates of tli^^ 
different Acts of Parliament passed for their improvement 
see H paper on this suiyect by J. G, Dodson, Esq., iLP. 
in Volume XY., p. 1 38. The inipassahle state of the Srisse 
roads appears to have been looked upon in the light of 
security by some of onr ancestors ; for when the road from 
LonJiui to Ijrightoii, through Cuckfield, was nmde, it w 
tirst [►ropoaed to carry it through Hurstplerpoint; and 
would probably have been the line adopted had not tlie res! 
dents there, and in the neighbourhood, petitioned rarliameii 
pgiiinst it, under the fearful apprehension th&t it would be 
the means of hriuging down from Loudon cut-throats, pick- 
pockets, iJtc,, and of introdneing amongst them every kind o 
contamination. In this fear, an ancestor of mine, residen' 
close by— a ^ood old SuE^ex bqiiire, cultivating his patermij 
acres -largely participated; he wae far too fufailiur with 
Sussex mud to look upon it ns a nuisance, or to wish for 
different state of things; as long ns it did not find its wny in 



ei(;n roads ik suasE^t. 


tTic tf>p of his bot>t3> \hi was content tn wade t]irou;rh it. Rut 
of London pollulioQ he had a great nbhorrence. lie looked 
upon the Metropolis us tbe focus of every thing that was bad, 
Tlie journej to London hy these rtcids "in 1075, and even 
half ii (lenturj^ or more Inter, geuerall/ occupied tie whole of 
two days. 

I shall now notice the only two roails from one city or

Among the raanj stirring eveobs which Sussex has witncs 
few nre more generally known, or have created nun-e interest, 
than the execution of & young Nobleman of tlie Countj-, afte 
formal trial by his peers, for the crime of murder, whii 
engaged in the minor, tliough still very grave, ofFen^ic of steal 
ing a neiglibour's Deer, The principal persons concerned i 
this affiiir were Thomtis^ Lord Dacre of llerst-Monceiix C^iatlej 
and liis three friLWs, Maiintell, Frowdys, and Roydon, all of 
whom were executed, John Busbridge, the subject of the 
homicide, and Sir Nicholaa Felhani, his master, owner of the 

The story has tiften been told, with much exnggeniticu 
and many blunders of detail. Popular IdsUiry and gi^neral 
sympathy have leaned towards tbe principEi! actor in th 
drama- JTistoriftus, chroniclers, and poetahavc viewed Lor 
Dacrc as an unfortunate and injured peiBon, Mrs. Gore i 
her tragedy, *' Dat^re of tbe South," has made him the victi 
of the tyranny and jealousy of tbe bij^h-spirited knight whom 
he Lad undoubtedly wronged ; tinJ the writer of the presenli 
pnpefj influenced by tbc prevalent notion, once rushed int 




versG in order to represent tliG young nobleman in a. moat 
amiiiblt! Hglit, and to prove hia participation in the matter 
as one of the venial faults of youth-' Taken any way^ tJiere 
is a great deal of romantic interest in the atory, and as Lord 
Dacre has hitherto been regarded, nt least in the popnlar 
mind, as ^ niorc sinned ngitinat than sinning,* it nuy be well 
to stJitfi the opposite side of the questiou as tuken from a 
publie record of unquestionable autheiili^:ity- ' Audi altennn 
partem/ is very sound advice both in a moral and in a legal 
sense, and the SiiseeitpaniphrLiae, **Onc story stands good till 
tether's heard/' k equally just. 

Let us &T&t (somewhat reversing the due order of things) 
state the case of the defenduuras generally umiersljjud. But 
previously to doing so, it may be as well to aay somewhat 
concerning the ancestry and position of that personage. 

liy reference to Vol, IV, of these Collections the reader may 
obtain full partlcularB of the noble family to which Lord 
Dacre belonged, llis ancestors in the male Hoe were the 
ancient Norniim family of Fiennea, or Fynea, who had through 
a marriage inherited IIcrst-Monceux from the equally ancient 
family of Monceujc^ who gave their name as the su^x of 
this their ancient patrimony. Lord Dacre's great grandfather, 
KicbardFynos, married Joan, daughter and heiress of Thonuis, 
Lord Daiire, and was ia her right summonerl to Parliaaient 
as Haron Dacre of the South/ and the IJarouy in fee has de- 
volved through female heirs on the Brands, who still enjoy it. 
The Hon. H. Brand is in possession of broad lands in our County, 
though no portion of them has, 1 think, Jescended with the title. 

In 1440, Sir K(iger Fyues, the father of Sir Richard, the 
Lead of the family, had erected Hersl-Moiiceus Castle, the 
oldest brick building in Sussex, and a beautiful type of the 
transition from the frowning baronial Fortress of ancient days 
to the modern and more convenient Mansion- Perhaps it is 
not too much to uffirm that no building of its size in England, 
tlie site iiud other cireumstance.s being taken into consider* 
ation, can compare, for picturesqueness, with this shell of a 
lordly dwelling. To this grand house Richard Fynes brought

summoned to Purliitmcnt iiml decliired Baron Djicre in 1458; 
in 1473 he was made Coiistftble of the Tower of Londou, and 
in 1475 a Privy Councillor. In 1484 he died, leaving his 
graiulsoiij Thaniiis, onW twelve yeiirs old, his herr. This

Cornwall, as well as against the iScots, He was also (Jouatabic

prlsou on the charf^e of harbouring suspected felons, and '* for 
remysnes and negligence in ponyslienient of thefu/' and hci 
confessed his guilt and submitted to iia penalty.'' 

Mr. Venables well remarks that these circumstances may 
'^ be considered to throw light on the tragical fate of the next 
Lord Uacre» the gnindson of Lord Thomits, by which the 
prosperity of the Dacres wra so dismally interrupted; sinc^, 
if Buch were the grandfather's character, it is hnrdly probable 
that the education of the yoim-: man, who was left an orphan, 
early, would be such ns befitted liis rank, while the example ^^ 
set him, and the companions with whom he would be asso-'^H 
ciated in hia ancestral Caatle, would early prepare him to ^* 
follow the reckless course whicU terminated in such a terrible 

On the death of hU grandfather in 1525, thisyoun^ heir-; 
apparent succeeded to the great wealth appertaining to onei 
of the finest estates and one of the oldeat baronies in thei 
kingdom. He wns only about seventeen when he became 
master of his propei'ty. His education appears to have been ^j 
much neglected, and although he was introduced at Court^f 
and assisted at some public ceremonials — although, too, he^^ 
had married i^arly a lady of noble birtli, a Neville^ daughter 
of Lord Abergavenny — he was evidently a reckless, if not &. 
profligate, young man. Some noble qualities he doubtless] 
possessed, but his wealth became his futul snare.

The judgment of the Court was that *' he is to hehtinged;* 
but neither place nor time for the execution is meitionedp 

Tliiia ignobly perished a young nobleman of ancient and 
illustrious ancestiy, the victim of his own follies. That he 
was put to death at the instance of certain courtiers "who 
gaped after his estate" is a statement utterly destitute of 
proof, and the record shows no evidence of unfairness and 
injustice in the proceedings. 

But it is painful to observe that many of the dramatis 
peraoTK^ were of near neighbourhood" and counection with 
tlie reits ret capitalist For instance, Sir Nicliolas Pelfuiui, ii 
county man of high reputation, waa the person on whom this 
doubly fatal aggression was made. A mistake, perpetuated 
*by many local historians, assigns the scene of the tragedy to 
LaughLm,^' Sir Jiicholas Pelhjtm lived, it 13 true, at

A few words respecting the persons concerned in 
tragical niatt^?r will condnde this paper, j 

I cannot account for the refiidence of John Bluuntell at^ 
Herst-Moncenx, though lie h us doiihtless a member of the 
ancient fiimilv of Mantel! of Kent and Sussex. The Mai 




tells were resident at Lewes for three hundred years, and it 
is ulniost surphisage to mention Dr, Gideon Mantell^ the 
eminent g;eologlst, a member of tlie family^ whose name will 
ever do honour to his native county. John Mauntell, the 
fllecr-shiyer> was, I think, a merely temporary dweller at 
Herst-Bloaceux. John Cheyne is more easily accounted for; 
his nactistry hjid long been connected with the neighbouring 
parish of Warhleti"»n, n forefat.lier, Sir Richard Chenry^ 
having married the co-heiress of Robert Cralle, of Cralle in 
that parish- The accused person in this case was John 
Cheney, son of Thomas Cheney of Warbleton, by lus 
wife Constance, daughter of Richard Scrase, of thi* VL-ry 
ancient faiuily of that name at W- Btatchington.'^ Henry 
Fitzherbert was, I believe, an ancestor of the family of that 
name, who iiftcrwnrds lived at *' The Friars,"' at Le\ves, nnd 
were very influential in the affairs of the town. The 
Mannsei-s were gentry, and had a good estate at liightown 
liear Wadliurst. Why the Nobleman consorted with the 
Blacksmith of Flctching is only to l>e accounted for by the 
general recklessness of his life. John Shelley, of Patoham, 
'as a |?e(itleman of ancient family, who may have " sowed his 
last wild oats" on this occasion. He afterwards eetUeJ duwn 
io a quiet life, and became the progenitor of the Shelleys of 
Iicvres, where their name will ever be honoured and respected. 

Shatspeare is accused of having hunted deer in Sir Thos. 
Lucy's park; but not in the same spirit as that which seeius 
to have actuated the Lord of lierst-Mcnceux, who appears to 

have hod malict' prepense.

Tde remarkable antc-Norman Church of Sompting has long 
presented an altrsictive object of study to our archaeolo-

to dtjscribc its architectarul character, its hititonj reinaitis uo-

is desirable that our Collections should possess a scientific

the parish, for which many materials exist. 

My present object is, however, simply to notice the re

Gougli Nichols, Esq., F.S.A. ; but as the subjects of that 
able periodical appeal only to a select few, luy remarks in this 
paper will probably be quite new to a great majority of the 
readei-s of our volumes. I am sure the learned Editor will 
pardon my partial self-plagiarism for the sake of local infi 

My first visit to the church took place under the guidance 
of Dr. Davcy, of Worthing, whose researches into the monastio 
history of the county of Sullblk are well known. After in- 
spectiog the tower and other remarkable features, I observed 
in the nortli wall of the chancel a monument in the style of 
tlie 90-callcd "Easter Sepulchre," or "Founder's Tomb," 
but apparently not earlier in date than the former part of the 

' To], L, p*ge S7M, 


Sixteenth century. There was no inscription to guide one to 
the knowledn^e of the person interred beneath* and on iuter- 
rogatlng my lrieu<i iind cicerone, upon tins point, I received 
the cui't and unsatisfactory reply, "Nobody knows T' This 
I afterwards fonnd to be the CMse, for Lhe Histories of Ciirt- 
wright and Ilorsfield, and the I Lm I hook of Mnrrny, all 
yielded a response equally unsatisfactory, " Well/' said I, 
*^ there arc some shields npon the tomb; let ua see whether 
Heraldry will not help us to an identification/* Accordingly 
I took out my note-book and made some memoranda, wliicli 
I subjoin- Let me premise that the workmanship of the 
tomb is Yery poor, the stone biid, and the herixidric sculpture 
evidently the work of an unskilled artiaan— probably the 
Tillage mason; added to which, the memorial has, until quit5 
recently, l>een coatedwith pi'ofuse layers of whiLewusli, in tlio 
removal of which the work may have anffered accidental 
piutilation. The armorial coats appear to be aa follows: — 

Under the canopy, an Angel aupporting a shield impaled 
(of henildric colours nothing is discernible); the dexter coat, 
three pjtii'a cf kuys crossed itj saltire, ou a chief three dol- 
phins: the sinister, two bars, m chief a lion pjissant. On 
the face of the tomb, three sMelda, I, Quarterly : 1 and 4, 
three bucks trippant; 2 and 3, two bars and a lion pnssant 
as above- II. Quarterly ; 1 and 4, a covered cup, with two 
objects nut very intelligible; 2 and 3, a leopard's head. IIL 
Very much defaced, though three dolphins may be made out 
at the upper part of the shield. The arras arc therefore 
probably identical with those first above described. 

The coat with the bars and the liL">n paasaut, a Sussex anti- 
quary had little difficulty in ikssigniiig to the well-known 
family of Tregoz,'' whose proper blazon* however, makes the 
bars ^tf//itr^/(?s, which the incised lines in this rude sculpture 
may have been intended to reprepent. A century or two 
earlier than the dale of our tomb, the Tregoz fumily were of 
leading importance not far from Sompting, and the name con- 
tinued to bi.' of gentle standing in West Sussex down to the 
days of Queen Elizabeth,

But, alas! what of the croGS-keys and dolphins, the bucks 
trippunt* the covered cups, and leopards' heads? Cleorl/, 
they did not belong to Susses heriddry, nnd I waa on 
point of giving thein up, when a vague recollection o 
paper written by Mi\ Nichols in Vol. XXX. of the Arc 
ologin.^ which I thought might assist my inquiry, occurred 
to me< On turning to page 506 of that volume, 1 found the 
first coat to be that of the Fiahmongers' Company, as 
ancii^ntly borne. The same paper also enabled me to identify 
the shield with the leopards* heads and covered cups, as that 
of the Guldsmiths' Company; and, from another source, 1 
discovered that the three bucks trippanc (with whieb Tregoz 
is quartered) were the arms of the L e nth erse Hers' Comp:inv_ 
Tlius I was able txi id»;ntify the whole of the bearings. £Ia 
to account for their presence on the tomb is another qucsbt 
respecting which I have nothing bettor than conjecture 

No doubt the jjerson commemorated had married a la<iy of 
the Tregfjz family,' ami lie not being of gentle hirth, yet 
desirous, at the time of his wife s death, of doing justice to 
his filliancc with a gentlewoman, had wished the arms of 
Tre^oz to be placed upon the tomb. '* Casting about," there- 
fore, for u coat for himself, he adopted for hnpalement with 
them the arms of tJie Fislimongera' Company, witli which he 
must have beeu in some way connected, Some nssociiitiou 
with the Leathersellcrs may have led to the placing of their 
ehield also u[Km the monument, and that the Goldsmiths' coat 
ehnnhl appear in juxbtpositicn with the Fishmongers' does' 
Bot seem remavkablc after one has read the paper aliove re- 
ferred to, '* On an Amity formed between the Companies of 
Fishmongers and Goldsmiths of London, and a coiiBcqu 
partition of their coat- armour.'^ 

Butwhittri^ht bud this Somptiug man to assume as a fami 
shield the armurials of a great City Company? Now-a-d&ys 
people are not very scrupulous as to borrowing the arms of 
others; but three hundred years ago, when the Earl 
Marshal and his subordinates were in the plenitude of their 
power, the case was widely different. 1 think I see in this

in&tfince some traces of an ancient and obsolete practice, 
by which corporate bodies empowered inJividuals of their 
nuraler to bear their arms. 

Thus, in the ** White B<xik"' of the Cinque Porlaj preserved 
at New llomney, is the following entry : 

^^Bi'Ry, flth.T„cHday Item, it is graunted by this present 

Itfter th« f.-iLnu of Brodhul!, that liobt. Coekc, of llomene, 
siynt MirgiireiL ^uter, sha!l Were and beare the whole 

Armes of the Portes-"* 

Again, in the grant of anus to the Company of Iron- 
mongers by Laticiisier, King of Arms, in the same year, it 
is willed and granted *^thftt he which ahall bore t-he leaner 
of the saide Crafte for the tyme, if such nede, be enarmed 
in the same armes for tli« saiiietluy and tyiiie, in delakkt; or 
for defnutc of his propie armes, in tokenyng of honour and 
worship of the said Cmfte and felaship, and att all tyracs to 
have and reioyce the same in the manor aforesddo for 
euermoro/' This passage is certainly ambiguous enough; 
but still I itin disposi?d to think it provoa thut the Irou- 
niongers (and hy parity the Fishuiongera)^ were at liberty to 
permit their banner-bearer to rejoice for evermore (i,tf. for 
life) in the ensigns of their corporation. 

I was fortnnate enough to discover the proprietorship of 
this sepalchi'e, and hence it is not impossible that hy further 
investigation its fK!Cupant's connection with the Pishmongers 
iind tlie other companies timy be shewn. It would be very 
interesting to ascertain from the archives of those corpora- 
tions whether at any of their ceremoniala he Lad tlic honour 
(if carrying the banner. 

The individual enlond>ed was RicRAan HukKK, 
I Hurry, or Berry. About twenty-five years ago, during a 
search In the Probate Court at Chichester, I found his Will, 
little thinking ai that time that I should afcerwiirds find his 
sepulchre, find resent his name from the oldivioa of more 
than three centuries. 

He is styled '^ Richard Burre, of Sowntyn^" (the lural 

prounnciation of Som[3lirig), and his testament Ucai'S date 

I 3rd August, l^tb Henry Vill, Tlie document is too long

for transcription here; but the main bequests are ei 
recited* '* L will," lie says, '^ my body to bo l>erjGd in my 
tumtiu in the chjiunsell of the church of Sowntyng," 'Sow 
as there is no ot.lipr trimhe. in that chancel, the one under con- 
sideration must necessarily be bis. Then foUovra a be<]iiesC 
of his worldly estate: *^Bichanl Holond, my aonne-in-Iawe*

and my ffarme culled Ksthamme, 30 as he kepe an obbit for 
my sGwle and my wyvye sowle xi. yeres, in the cburche o( 
Sovvntyug. At that obbit to be spent in prestc, clerks, 
ryugers, and jKmer people (in the snid piirish) siij' iv^; he 
during the said tl'u yers to send to the gray (Tryars of 
Chichester iij' iv", to prny ffcr my sowie, &c. AUso to the 
bhdvi.' rtryers of Chichester, iij" iv''; to the Oyers of Arun- 
dell flfor lyke cawse, ij'; and to the ffryers of the Sele 
(Beeding Priory) for lyke cawse." He mentions his brothers, 
Kichard Cont and Thomas llobsune, and hia nevew Thomas 
Bury. To John Ilroderwicke he bequeaths "the ffarme in 
Sowntyng, whiche I now hold of the Prior and Convent of

leaves vi" xiij" iv*, and wills that '^S' Robert Beehton, my

Thus Kichard Buit*^ must have been a personage of conai*- 
derable importance^ a grea^farmor of church lauds and tithesi 
principally under the Knights of St- John of Jerusalem, 
who had at Sompting, as elsewhere, succeeded to the Tem- 
plars, Hence, though only a leaseholder, his right to be 
buried in the chance!, and to appoint a chaplain- 

A family of Burry have Iwcn resident at Sompting fi'oni 
time immemorial, aud there is little doubt of thuir having 
sprung from Mr. Burre's '^nevew/' They have no trad il^^ 
respecting the niomiment, or of ever having home arma.j|^| 
may add that so early as ld\^^ a Walter Burry sat in rnr^

At the request of our esteemed Contisponding Secretary 
and Editor, M. A,Lower^ Esq., I have hud much pleasure ia 
copying tht- ftilluwirig inscriptioua for the Sussex ArchiBoIogi- 
oul Collections. 

fn Vol- XIL T furnished the first cr>ntributions of Church 
^_^fltid Chiirchyurd Inscriptiotis to the Colkctions — from feen- 
^Mfrtrd. Since then (18^0) the parish church has beeu 
^B'** restoreJ," !ind some of the oldest wnd most interesting in- 
^^Jacriptions hiive been tiikeri away, &ud the grave-stoaes not 
^^Ki>phic.ed. But for tUe cate for preservation exercised by our 
^Hexcellcnt County Society, those ancient names and dates nuist 
^ff have i>ecn irretrieviibly lost aa mementoa of puhhc reference, 
1 This fiict alone shows the urgent necessity of collecting these 
inecnptions from the various parishes in Sussex, and 
ej^ptcially where a church id likely to undergo " rest<jratiini,' 
Apart from local interest, their inaertion in our Colleetions 
makes thera of considerable public value, which cannot, 
perhaps, be overrated. Some generations hence, no doubt, 
these olntuary memorials will prove of even still greater 
usefulness, wlieu, as in too many iustances, the grave- stones^ 
&c.^ from age, or neglect, become altogctber illegible.*
