PEASMARSH is a parish and village, 3 miles north-west from Rye, on the London road, in the Eastern division of the county, Goldspur hundred rape of Hastings, Rye union and county court district, diocese of Chichester, archdeaconry of Lewes, and rural deanery of Dallington. The church of SS. Peter and Paul is in the Early English style: it is very beautifully situated in the centre of a well-wooded park, about a mile from the village: it is a small but very ancient structure, and has been restored: the chancel arch presents a fine specimen of the pure Saxon style of architecture. The register dates from 1569. The living is a vicarage, annual value £261, with residence, in the gift of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge, and held by the Rev. William Richard Ick, B.D., of that college. A neat schoolhouse, attended by about 80 children of both sexes, has recently been erected it the expense of the vicar. Here is a Wesleyan chapel. Near the church is 'the Place,' the seat of Herbert Mascall Curteis, Esq., and the occasional residence of the family of W. A. Mackinnon Esq., M. P. . Area of the parish 3,718 acres; the population in 1861 was 906. [Kelly's Post Office Directory of Essex, Herts, Middlesex, Kent, Surrey and Sussex, 1867.]
