"GROOMBRIDGE, a chapelry in the parish of Speldhurst, hundred of Somerden, lathe of Sutton-at-Hone, county Kent, 3 miles S.W. of Tonbridge Wells, its post town, and 8 E. of East Grinstead. It is situated on the borders of Sussex, and was formerly a market town belonging to the Cobham family. It afterwards came to the Wallers, one of whom, Sir Richard, captured the Duke of Orleans at the battle of Agincourt, and kept him close prisoner here. The living is a curacy annexed to the rectory* of Speldhurst, in the diocese of Canterbury. The church is a small edifice, dedicated to St. John. A very old tree is pointed out in the vicinity of the church, said to have been planted by an admirer of Cicely Nevill, Duchess of York, who subsequently became mother of Richard III. There is a National school for both sexes. Groombridge Place is a strongly-built mansion of the time of Henry V.; it is surrounded by a moat, and has, in some of the apartments, curious antique oak carvings. Fairs are held on the 17th May and 25th September."
