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:

Winn, John. 61. Has been in Lewes Gaol for cutting litter on the Forest and for poaching. Born at Nutley. When I was a lad I worked 7 years for my uncle William Winn who used 25 or 30 acres which old Henry Card now has and Gotlands belonging to the Shelleys. Then I worked about at Wood's nursery and elsewhere. When I was 34 years old I came to live at the old forge for 7 years and then moved to Summerford where I have lived for the last 27 years.
