9th Oct 1879RecollectionsWilliam YoungFincham FarmAshdown Forest dispute

During The Ashdown Forest Dispute 1876-1882 commoners and land owners were interviewed by the solicitor William Raper. Their comments were recorded in a series of notebooks:

Young, William. Fincham Farm, Hartfield. Farmer. Born on the farm 29 August 1834. Baptised at Hartfield. Fincham now consists of the old Farm House and 23 acres. It belonged to my father Henry Young. I have lived on it all my life except 7 years from about 17 to 24 when I was in Woolwich Arsenal, coming home every few months.
