Historical records

1610[North] Sussex[North] Sussex by John Norden and augmented by John SpeedNutleyJohn Speed
The first engraved maps of the counties of Great Britain were the work of Christopher Saxton who, under the authority of the Privy Council, surveyed the English counties in Elizabethan times, from 1574 to 1578. In 1593 he was followed by John Norden who projected an ambitious scheme for a complete series of county histories. He published before his death a number of counties - Middlesex, Hertfordshire, Essex, Northampton, Cornwall, Sussex and Surrey. John Speed's map of Sussex is based upon Norden's map and was engraved by Jodocus Hondius. It occupies pages nine and ten of John Speed's Atlas entitled "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine", is 20 1/4 inches by 15 1/4 inches in size and shows additionally an interesting plan of Chichester and a spirited representation of the Battle of Hastings.

1695[North] Sussex[North] Sussex by Robert MordenNutleyRobert Morden
Robert Morden was a London bookseller from 1669 until his death in 1703. He specialised in the geographical field and was himself something of a cartographer and a publisher. Throughout the 17th and most of the 18th centuries, there was little distinction between the activity of book or print-selling and that of publishing: many booksellers were also printers or engravers. They undertook the sale of each others' work and often combined to meet the high cost of publishing a new map or reissue of an old atlas, even if the original plates were still available. This map was published in Brittania: a chorographical description of Great Britain and Ireland by William Camden.

Thomas Kitchin, an engraver and publisher from c.1738 to 1776, held the appointment of Hydrographer to the King. His output was prolific. He engraved the maps of the British and French dominions in North America by John Mitchell (1755), which was used at the peace coucil at the end of the revolutionary war. In his later years he worked with his son (hence senior after his name in the c.1755 edition of the Small English Atlas). He died in 1784.

1890HistoryNutleyFirmin's Guide

Maresfield is between four and five miles from Crowborough. The way to it is by the Uckfield Road as far as Five Ash Down. Here the road branches off to the right.

The Rev. Mr. Turner, who has written a history of Maresfield, and to whom I am indebted for the following particulars, considers that Marysfield is the right designation of Maresfield, and that the district was formerly dedicated to S. Mary.

There was a royal palace or hunting-lodge in the parish, supposed to have been built by Edward II. It stood in a wood called the Vetchery, near Nutley, some distance from the present village of Maresfield. Both Edward III and his son, John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, frequented it for sport.

A place near Duddleswell is still called "King's Standing" on the supposition that it is the spot where the royal sportsmen stood to observe the sport. From this royal hunting-lodge Edward II executed two deeds, dated 23rd and 24th September, 1324.

There was also a chapel near Nutley, situated in Chapel Wood, on an eminence. The foundations are now entirely removed. In 1541 it was no longer used for divine service, but it is marked on a map of Sussex of the time of Queen Elizabeth.

In the Churchwardens' book of 1541 mention is made of the removal of the sacramental cup and vestments to the church at Maresfield.

The Francis Frith Web Site The Frith archive was founded by Francis Frith, the pioneer Victorian photographer, in 1860 and today contains over 365,000 photographs of some 7,000 towns and villages throughout Britain. Taken between 1860 and 1970 these form a topographical record of Britain without equal and is recognised as probably the only photographic collection of national importance in private hands in Britain today.

The importance of the Frith archive is as a topographical and social record. It provides an amazingly detailed visual record of over 7,000 towns and villages, as well as illustrating the enormous social and structural changes which have taken place in Britain since 1860. Whilst some of the photographs are undoubtedly artistically outstanding, the real value of the archive lies in its scale. There is no other archive which can illustrate this period of British history so extensively or to such a high quality.
