By Nadine Hygate
After many years of research Nadine has compiled an interpretive history of this important building in Crawley, its owners and occupiers. The building is Nationally Listed Grade II.
To understand the position of the house in Crawley’s history it is necessary to know the land boundaries of administration which date from Anglo-Saxon times and is the reason that the name of the village does not appear in Domesday Records.
The house has been a family home for more than six centuries, and this book relates to the lives of the families who lived there and their contribution to the life of the community during the early eras, in particular since 1600.
The building is now the home of Crawley Museum.
