FITTLEWORTH is a village and parish, 3 miles south-east from Petworth, on the road to Arundel, near the river West Rother: it is in the Western division of the county, hundred of Bury, rape of Arundel, Sutton incorporation, diocese and archdeaconry of Chichester, rural deanery of Midhurst, Sutton union, and Petworth county court district. This manor, in the reign of Edward I., was held by William Dawtrey, and subsequently passed to the Bishop of Chichester, to whom it still pertains. The church is a small building in the Early English and Decorated styles, and has a chancel, nave, and north aisle. The register commences in 1701. The living is a vicarage, tithe rent £450, with glebe, in the gift of the Bishop of Chichester, and held by the Rev. Thomas Rumpf Drake, M.A., of Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. There is a National school for boys and girls. The area is 2,367A. 2R. l0P., of which about one-third is arable, one-third common, and the remaining third pasture and woodland; the population in 1801 was 683.
