PETT is a parish, 4½ miles east-north-east from Hastings, in the Eastern division of the county, hundred of Guestling, Hastings union, rape and county court district, diocese of Chichester. archdeaconry of Lewes, and rural deanery of Bexhill. The parish is bounded on the south-east by the English Channel: the surface is undulating in some parts, and the views are extensive and picturesque; from Chick Hill the French coast may be distinctly seen in clear weather. The church of SS. Mary and Peter was rebuilt in 1864, and is a handsome structure, there are monuments to the Wynch family; also one in memory of the daughter of the late Dean of Norwich. The registers date from 1612. The living is a rectory, net income £512, with 11 acres of glebe and a rectory-house, in the gift of Henry Young, Esq., and held by the Rev. Frederick Young, M.A., of Balliol College, Oxford. In many parts of Pett trees have been dug up in a sound state, supposed to have been buried since October, 1250, when the sea overwhelmed and destroyed a large tract of land. The Royal Military Canal passes through the parish. The population in 1861 was 320, and the area is 2,350 acres.
