East Hoathly  Sussex


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described East Hoathly like this:

HOATHLY (EAST), or EASTHOTHLY, a village and a parish in Uckfield district, Sussex. The village stands about 4½ miles SE by S of Uckfield railway station, and 7 N w of Hailsham; and has a post office under Hurstgreen, and a fair on 8 April. The parish contains also the hamlets of Grays, Whitesmiths, and the Nursery. ...

Acres, 2, 000. Real property, £3, 112. Pop., 615. Houses, 116. The manor, with much of the land, belongs to the Earl of Chichester; and much of the land belongs also to W. Gilliat, Esq. Hallend House, once the seat of the Pelham family, stood on the S border, and now is partly taken down, is partly a farm house. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Chichester. Value, £261.* Patron, the Earl of Abergavenny. The old church was chiefly later English; and was, with the exception of its tower, taken down in 1856. The new church was erected afterwards; and is a neat edifice of nave, chancel, and porch. Here is an Independent chapel.
