Richard de Amundeville was lord: in 1381 it was held by Henry Hussee, the Lord of Harting: in the time of Henry VIII. it was granted to Sir Henry Audley: in 1784 the Earl of Egremont purchased it: in 1800 it passed to Lord Spencer, from whom it has passed into the hands of Sir Charles Hamilton, Bart., the present lord. The parish extends from north to south 6 miles: the average breadth is however, less than half a mile: it is on the river West Rother: here is a paper mill: the village is situate in the valley.

Charles Klanert, M.A., of St. Peter's College, Cambridge, rural dean. Here are National schools for boys, girls, and infants.
