The junction of the Gault and Lower Greensand in East Sussex and at Folkestone, Kent: Weald Research Committee Report No. 42, by R. Casey, F.G.S., published 1950 in The Proceedings of the Geologists' Association London (no. 61 issue 4, article, pp.268-298)   View Online
Gault and Lower Greensand are parts of an essentially continuous and conformable series; their line of demarcation is often arbitrary and has no fixed time-relationship. In the Lewes-Eastbourne district of Sussex, for example, the basement-beds of the Gault are the age-equivalents of almost the whole of the Folkestone Beds of the Lower Greensand as developed at Folkestone, the nodosocostatum, tardefurcata, and mammillatum zones of the Albian all being represented in 3-4 feet of glauconitic sandy clay with phosphatic nodules. The presence of the nodosocostatum zone is here indicated by the jacobi fauna, the first authentic record of its occurrence in England since its discovery at Folkestone in 1939. Conversely, the sands which underlie the Gault in this part of Sussex are regarded as an expanded version of the bottom few inches of the Folkestone Beds at Folkestone and are compared with the sands below the nodule-bed with H. jacobi at Wissant, in the Bas Boulonnais.
The diachronous base of the Gault in East Sussex, previously thought to indicate transgressive overlap, may now be ascribed to the progressive assumption by the top beds of the Lower Greensand of the Gault facies as they extend towards the coast, thereby partly accounting for the rapid south-easterly thinning of the Lower Greensand in East Sussex. This hypothesis is advanced as the explanation for the apparent disappearance of the Folkestone Beds under Eastbourne.
Condensed and incomplete faunal successions are demonstrated in both areas and the significance of phosphatic nodule-beds in unravelling the relations of Gault and Lower Greensand is discussed. Some modifications of current views on the faunal sequence in the Folkestone Beds and basal Gault at Folkestone are introduced. The Lower Albian ammonite Hypacanthoplites is illustrated for the first time from a British occurrence.

A Descriptive Report on the Quarter Sessions, Other Official and Ecclesiastical Records in the Custody of the County Councils of West and East Sussex, with a Guide to the Development and Historical Interest of Archives, compiled by The Clerk of West Sussex and the Clerk of East Sussex County Councils, published 1954 (East Sussex & West Sussex County Councils) accessible at: W.S.R.O. [Lib 5579]
Review by K. M. E. Murray in Sussex Notes and Queries, November 1955:
The publication of this report marks the progress that has been made in the West and East Sussex County Record Offices since the appointment of County Archivists in 1946 and 1950 respectively. The greater part of the records now indexed and made accessible to students are those of the Court of Quarter Sessions (judicial and administrative!), the Lieutenancy, the Coroners and the County Councils. Reference to the return made by the Clerk of the Peace in 1800, when the records were kept in his private residence "pretty well preserved" and "pretty much kept separately" without "any person specially entrusted with the care of the said Records" (p. vii) and to the list of documents missing and "destroyed as useless" (p. 5), reminds one of the need there was for an official archivist. A great advantage in having properly staffed and organised County Record Offices is seen in the fact that they have already become repositories for archives from other sources. This volume includes the contents of the Diocesan Record Office established as an annexe to the County Record Office at Chichester by an agreement with the Bishop of Chichester in 1949, for the preservation of parish registers and other records, and in 1951 for the Episcopal and Chapter records from the Cathedral and the Diocesan Registry. Up to date over forty parishes have deposited their records at Chichester, while the Episcopal records number about a thousand books and 50,000 papers. A future volume in this series will, it is hoped, deal with the Estate and Family Archives, many of which are now in the care of the County Archivist.
The present volume was largely the work of the late Mr. Campbell Cooke and is a fitting memorial of his excellent work in starting the County Record Offices on the right lines. The division of the County between two administrative authorities in 1889 introduces complications in the treatment of the archives and it was a wise decision to publish a combined report to cover both County Record Offices. This report is more than a list of the classes of documents and a guide to the offices in which they are to be found: it includes also a brief historical introduction to each class, which explains the origin of the records and indicates the kind of information which may be found in them. It forms thus an indispensable handbook for anyone embarking upon research in this county. There is a useful index and some cross referencing between the different classes. One small point for correction in a future edition - Brighton, by a typographical error, appears on p. 5 as a Cinque Port.

Landscape evaluation: a research project in East Sussex, by K. D. Fines, published 1968 in Regional Studies (vol. 2, issue 1, article, pp.41-55)   View Online
A method of landscape and townscape evaluation is described. A worldwide scale of values was devised by testing a selected group with photographs to remove personal bias. A network of view evaluations is converted to land-surface values. A micro-evaluation of East Sussex is set against an outline evaluation of Britain; regional "landscape value profiles" with parameters being illustrated. The rate of "landscape erosion" is discussed. Applications of the technique and an example of route selection for a supergrid transmission line are explored. Methods of defining conservation areas by statistical techniques are described and a plea made for the recognition of areas important in relation to population and accessibility.

Cancer screening in East Sussex, by W. J. Wigfield, published January 1976 in Public Health (vol. 90, issue 2, article, pp.65-73)
This paper examines what has been achieved in East Sussex since cancer screening started in 1966. The statistics for registered cases of carcinoma of breast and of cervix have been analysed, and related to the work of the cancer screening clinics. The incidence of both diseases is falling, but this is not due to screening. More early cases of breast cancer, and fewer late cases, are now being found but this is not so with cervical cancer. The mass screening of symptomless women at special screening clinics is no longer economic.

Holocene evolution of the gravel coastline of East Sussex, by S. Jennings and C. Smyth, published 1990 in The Proceedings of the Geologists' Association London (no. 101 issue 3, article, pp.213-224)   View Online
The East Sussex coastline has been a sedimentary sink during the Holocene. Therefore, variations in the type and quantity of sediment transported within the coastal system may have been the principal factors determining stratigraphie sequences. The variations in sediment supply have found a morphological expression in periodic prograding and retrograding of coastal barriers. An examination of the origin and development of the present gravel barrier beaches indicates that much of the beach sediment probably has its origin in the Pleistocene, while during the Holocene, variations in the littoral drift system and associated changes in geomorphic processes, especially between reflective and dissipative domains, have exerted a major control upon coastal evolution in East Sussex.

East Sussex Land Tax, 1785, edited by Roger Davey, published 1 April 1991 (vol. 77, xxxvi + 309 pp., Sussex Record Society, ISBN-10: 0854450386 & ISBN-13: 9780854450381) accessible at: W.S.R.O. [Lib 11681][Lib 13075] & The Keep [LIB/500454][Lib/507860] & West Sussex Libraries & East Sussex Libraries
The Land Tax, like a rate, was an annual charge on the occupiers of houses and land which for over two centuries in England and Wales formed one of the staple sources of income for the government. The records of its assessment and collection have long been recognised as of major importance for a wide range of historical studies, from aspects of social and economic history, to the more personal or local (but no less fascinating) realms of family and estate history. This volume, however, achieves for the first time (so far as it is known) the publication of a full transcription and index of the lists for an entire county in a single year.
The year chosen is 1785, one of the earliest to provide national coverage through surviving records, and the county is East Sussex-comprising 146 parishes and liberties, including the towns of East Grinstead, Lewes, Hastings and Rye, as well as the biggest single parish covered, the important developing town of Brighton. Over 12,500 units of assessment (houses and land) are listed, of varying sizes, which were in the ownership or occupation of nearly 10,000 individuals. The lists thus represent more than half the contemporary householders of the county, or nearly 10% of the population. All personal and place names are indexed here, making the volume in effect a 'directory' of East Sussex of a considerably earlier date than the useful printed series developed in Victorian times. Moreover, many farm and other minor local names which are not readily to be found in other reference books can now for the first time be speedily located.
This volume is thus an essential tool for locating ancestors and setting them in their local context. It also enables the social and economic historian to identify the spread of large and small estates, to make some assessment of the wealth of individuals, and to indicate the concentration and diffusion of land ownership in different areas. And last, but not least, it provides a valuable 'key' to much more by unlocking the means of entry to other original records-earlier and later land tax assessments, and related records such as manorial court rolls, rate books, title deeds, and estate papers. It is hoped that the volume, as a pioneering venture, may point the way to similar projects in other areas, thus opening up an important source to wider study.

It is often asserted that the 150 years from 1380 witnessed an emerging nouveau riche class, able for the first time to construct houses incorporating a lofty open hall and substantial first-floor end-chambers, which were sufficiently well-built to survive to the present day. That this model is broadly correct there can be little doubt. But by implying that these houses were always constructed in one phase, wholly replacing their predecessors, we are in danger of over-simplifying the true picture. Research within eastern Sussex indicates that at least 29 per cent, and perhaps as many as 40 per cent of our surviving medieval and transitional housing stock are the result of piecemeal enlargement and reconstruction. The former figure is likely to rise as more examples are recognized for what they are.

The infrastructure which makes possible many of the conveniences of modem life is often taken for granted: water supply, electricity and gas, harbours, docks and navigable rivers, the road, railway and former street tramway networks, and so on. Many of these, however, were only made possible by the inventive genius and initiative of the 19th and earlier 20th centuries, and even long-existing provision (such as for water and roads) was transformed in the same period. This volume describes in detail one of the principal sources for tracing the history of this crucial and wide ranging provision - the series of 586 East Sussex plans which accompanied Bills to Parliament to authorise the various schemes put forward, and which in many cases resulted in Acts. Copies of the plans had to be deposited locally, and it is this series, complete from 1799 to 1970, which is listed here. Of particular interest are the plans for schemes which were promoted, but which never came to fruition. East Sussex in this context means primarily the pre-1974 county, including the 'Mid Sussex corridor'; but because many schemes (e.g. those for railways) overlapped the boundary, some plans feature parts of West Sussex as well. West Sussex plans (with some East Sussex overlap) were described in an earlier volume published by the Society in 1968 (66), but for either area the full indexes provided with the volumes enable the user readily to identify plans covering particular places. Every local town (notably Brighton and Hastings), and almost every rural parish, was affected by works proposed at one time or another. The work of national and local surveyors can likewise be traced here, and the maps contain much useful topographical information, with details of the owners and occupiers of land and buildings in the areas affected by potential schemes.

The configuration of inner Rooms and chambers in the transitional houses of Eastern Sussex, by David Martin, published 2003 in Vernacular Architecture (vol. 34, article, pp.37-51) accessible at: British Library   View Online
Using a tool known as planning analysis, this paper explores the relationship between the first-floor chambers within a group of transitional houses within East Sussex for which the internal communications can be reconstructed. It demonstrates that the chambers in these houses were organised into ?suites' of connected rooms, suggesting that very specific uses were intended. In this, the article poses questions rather than provides answers.

A definitive allosauroid (Dinosauria; Theropoda) from the Lower Cretaceous of East Sussex, by Darren Naish, published 2003 in The Proceedings of the Geologists' Association London (no. 114 issue 4, article, pp.319-326)   View Online
A partial proximal tibia (estimated total length of tibia 550 mm) from a large theropod was discovered in the Samuel Beckles collection of Hastings Museum and Art Gallery, East Sussex. It was probably collected from the Hastings Group of the Wealden Supergroup. Derived character states show that it can be referred to the Allosauroidea but it is more robust than are the tibiae of Neovenator salerii, the only well-known Wealden allosauroid, and the two differ in the morphology of the fibular crest, cnemial crest and proximal articular condyles. The Hastings specimen, therefore, probably belongs to another Wealden allosauroid, possibly Becklespinax altispinax (a taxon based on dorsal vertebrae). Large theropod material from the Hastings Group has been reported before but generally lacks characters that allow it to be identified beyond Tetanurae.

East Sussex Events: Death, Disaster, War and Weather, by David Arscott, published 1 October 2003 (144 pp., Chichester: Phillimore & Co. Ltd., ISBN-10: 186077251X & ISBN-13: 9781860772511) accessible at: West Sussex Libraries & East Sussex Libraries
East Sussex has a long and interesting history. This fascinating new book presents for the first time a collection of the most dramatic 'events' in that long history, all, since the invention of the camera, captured by enterprising photographers. A picture speaks a thousand words - and never more so than when it records a moment in history that can never be repeated. Well within living memory, happenings such as the great freeze of 1962-3, or the great hurricane of 1987 will stir recollections for many readers, as will many stories and pictures from the Second World War. But, whatever the period or part of the county, there is a great deal to intrigue and inform everyone in East Sussex in this splendid addition to its published history . . . the stories and the pictures of the events that made the headlines!

Windmills at Work in East Sussex, compiled by Brigid Chapman from the research material of the late Maurice Lawson Finch, published 1 October 2004 (Seaford: S. B. Publications, ISBN-10: 185770293X & ISBN-13: 9781857702934) accessible at: West Sussex Libraries & East Sussex Libraries
At the beginning of the nineteenth century, nearly every town and village had one or more windmills to grind corn. Today only a very few remain and can be visited and perhaps even seen working. However the sites are still there - some with the remains of the windmills that stood on them converted to handsome country houses, some in process of restoration, some offering just foundation marks in the soil and a wonderful view. This book, which is packed with pictures of East Sussex mill sites then and now, lists them in alphabetical order with map references. It also details the fires, storms and odd and unusual things that happened to the individual mills and their owners.

The East Sussex coastline has always been Britain's frontline defence against invasion. From the forts of Henry VIII and the Napoleonic Martello Towers to the pillboxes, gun emplacements and civil defence sits of the two World Wars and the secret structures of the Cold War, the evidence of the defences can still be seen.
Local author and archaeologist Chris Butler takes us to each of these sites (approximately 200 in total), describing what is to be seen today and their history. As well as a full range of illustrations there are full directions to the cites and details of access.

Haunter Theatres of East Sussex, by Tina Lakin, published 14 July 2008 (96 pp., ISBN-10: 0752447556 & ISBN-13: 9780752447551) accessible at: West Sussex Libraries & East Sussex Libraries
The history of East Sussex theatres is particularly fascinating due to the sheer variety of venues that hosted plays, opera shows and musical entertainment. Tina Lakin's interest in the rise and fall of the many piers in the county where extravagant balls and concerts were held, led her to discover the weird and sometimes tragic tales that have arisen in these spectral structures. Included in the book is a history of entertainment, from Greek tragedies to the rise of the music hall and circus acts through to the modern-day tattooist shows and successful events at Glyndebourne. From the spectre of a waif-like orphan searching for the glamour of the theatre, a phantom orchestra playing on a seaside promenade to the ghost of an unrequited backstage love affair the tales will both surprise and mystify the reader.
Illustrated with over fifty unusual images, the tales will enchant the lovers of ghost stories and those interested in the rise and decline of entertainment on Britain's south-east coast. Accompanied by interesting pictures of bygone times as well as some contemporary images, a complete history of area's theatrical hauntings are gathered here. This collection of thought-provoking eerie tales is sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in the paranormal or theatre history.

In almost every parish church in East Sussex there survive examples of commemorative art - ledger stones on the floor, wall-mounted inscriptions and monumental brasses and numbers of substantial carved-stone funeral monuments standing in chancels and family chapels. Never previously studied as a group, these objects cast dramatic light on the social, religious and family histories of the county. The media and artistic techniques involved in making these works of monumental art are many and varied: they are sculpted, engraved, cast and painted in stone, brass, iron and wood and are of interest to students of local history and of art and architecture. Some Sussex monuments were made locally, with important centres of production in Lewes and in the Weald where the celebrated cast-iron floor slabs were turned out. Other works were made outside the county and brought in, probably by water transport, from London and sometimes from as far away as continental Europe.
At the heart of this volume is a set of catalogue entries, each one dedicated to one of the 1409 items that have been identified as a result of extensive field-work in 144 East Sussex churches. The whole project represents the largest published regional survey of English monumental art ever attempted. Each work included mentions a person or people who died in the period 1530 - 1830 and in each case there are either transcriptions or summaries of the monumental inscriptions. An introductory essay, illustrated by 200 colour plates, outlines the broad historical trends and key developments and sets the monumental art of post-Reformation East Sussex into the broader national context. In addition, the catalogue entries may be studied in conjunction with a complete set of high resolution on-line photographs on the Society's web site at A complete index of artists and persons is also included.
Review by Danae Tankard in Sussex Past & Present no. 127, August 2012:
Sussex Record Society volume 93 is a catalogue of 1409 monuments in 144 East Sussex parish churches dating from the period 1530 to 1830, compiled by Professor Nigel Llewellyn and a team of research assistants and volunteers. The volume includes colour photographs of 200 of the listed monuments. An accompanying database available through the Sussex Record Society website provides high-resolution images of most of the monuments listed in the catalogue. Professor Llewellyn's introduction explains the origins of the project and offers an overview of the geographical, demographic, social and economic contexts of the monuments.
The volume and database represent a significant resource for anyone interested in funerary monuments. As Llewellyn points out, such monuments have been a neglected category. Few are considered to have enough architectural or sculptural merit to be of interest to historians of art and design and, until recently, they mainly attracted attention from genealogists and local historians. However, to some extent this neglect is already a thing of the past: over the last few years there have been a number of significant publications on medieval and early modern funerary monuments and their place within mortuary culture by Peter Sherlock, Nigel Saul and, indeed, by Llewellyn himself.
The catalogue entries in this volume provide a physical description of each monument, a transcription of the inscription and some additional biographical and genealogical information. The descriptions and many of the inscriptions reduce the deceased's life and death to series of emotionless facts. Yet over the period 1530 to 1830 the monuments themselves became increasingly emotive. A flamboyant example of this is the freestanding monument at Withyham to Thomas Sackville, son of Richard, Earl of Dorset, who died in 1675 aged 13, which includes life-sized effigies of the child (looking, it has to be said, remarkably well) and his griefstricken parents.

Pevsner Architectural Guides - Sussex: East with Brighton and Hove, by Nicholas Antram, published 14 May 2013 (revised edition, xix + 751 pp. & 64 pages of plates, Yale University Press, ISBN-10: 0300184735 & ISBN-13: 9780300184730) accessible at: R.I.B.A. Library & West Sussex Libraries & East Sussex Libraries
The East Sussex volume of The Buildings of England covers an area ranging from the High Weald in the north of the county to the massive ridge of the South Downs and the resort towns and ancient ports of the coast. Its coastal resorts are particularly distinguished, none more so than Brighton and Hove, where John Nash's oriental Pavilion for the Prince Regent sets the tone. Elsewhere castles at Camber, Bodiam and fortified town walls at Rye and Winchelsea attest to its military past and Battle Abbey to its medieval endowments. The towns and villages are especially rich in timber-framed, brick and tile houses for which the county is famous. The twentieth century makes its mark in the exhilarating De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill, and the uncompromising forms of the 1960s University of Sussex campus.
Review by Sabrina Harcourt-Smith in Sussex Past and Present no. 131, December 2013:
In 1951 Sir Nikolaus Pevsner (1902-1983) embarked on his landmark Buildings England series. Ever selfeffacing and modest, how pleased he would have been to foresee that in less than three decades his project would be an epic 47-volume collection of unique county guides, going into revised Second Editions.
Having settled in England in 1934, Pevsner was soon writing and publishing serious architectural studies. His dismay on finding that there was no English equivalent to Georg Dehio's portable Handbuch der Deutschen Kunstdenkmaler of c1900 drove him to found its equal in England.
On a slender budget with newly-fledged graduates as researchers, he worked tirelessly on a grinding schedule to produce two or even three volumes a year. The first edition of Sussex was published in 1965 and covered East and West Sussex, the authors being Pevsner and Ian Nairn. The present Revised Edition revealed challenges which the author, the late Nicholas Antram, has addressed and has used to produce a superb volume. Wisely, the large county of Sussex is split into two parts, of which this is the first. The successful Brighton and Hove Architectural Guide of 2008 by Antram and Richard Morrice, which used Pevsner's text as their foundation, has been incorporated into this volume. Thereby full attention is given to the magnificent places of worship in Brighton and Hove.
In his foreword Antram explains that Sussex boundary changes, new research and a wave of investigations called for overhaul and expansion of Pevsner's text, without the loss of his substance and character. Charles O'Brien's preface to his Introduction depicts an attractive Sussex with majestic Downs, historic Wealden landscapes, growing coastal towns and a rural spirit intact in many places. Valuable new sections are Geology and Building Stones by Bernard Worssam, Prehistoric, Roman and Pagan Saxon Sussex by David Rudling and background chapters which include an extensive Medieval East Sussex. In the foreword Antram also records his 'biggest debt of gratitude to David and Barbara Martin' for their expertise on East Sussex domestic buildings.The Gazeteer is the core of the book. When dipping at random into sites it is clear that the author has left no stone unturned in his task to collate the best knowledge on any building. Huge amounts of fresh information and new subjects have been incorporated at all levels and in all fields, including church furnishings and modern buildings. The addition to the text of over 60 black and white illustrations of plans, old prints of buildings and maps is attractively laid out and a great asset, as is a re-ordered Glossary with the drawings set together in the middle. Many new colour illustrations vividly display the wide range of Sussex building stones that Dr Bernard Worssam describes.
Sussex: East is a many-faceted guide book. It will be invaluable for the serious scholar, equally right for the armchair traveller or for the explorer arriving in Sussex for the first time. Pevsner's enduring genius lies at its centre; as a true inheritor of Pevsner, Nick Antram, together with his team, has continued the genius.

For 400 years Kent and East Sussex were vividly and visibly associated with the cultivation of hops. Fran and Geoff Doel have evoked this bygone world of hopping by gathering together a wide range of social and literary accounts, poems and songs from the Tudor period to the present day, each with a contextual introduction. The selection illustrates both the 'rose-tinted' image and the harsher reality of a distinctive aspect of rural life in the south east.
