Timeline

Charleston Manor House

 

The detail in this section traces the origins of the Manor back to 1080, just 14 years after the Battle of Hastings a few miles away. The manor being so important in the "spoils of war" we know more about the owners in the early years of the 11th and 12th Century than we do between 1800 and 1900.

 
"The house sits in a valley where Saxons once sheltered, and the dovecote and the earliest part of the house are recorded as having been owned by William the Conqueror's cupbearer".
 

Architectural Digest - June 1985

 

 

The information here is being constantly updated and we hope soon to go back to Sussex to fill in the information from the missing years.
