Dear Readers

I am currently researching the history of The Hyde, Handcross and wondered if anyone has access to any of the following:

1. information on the builder of the house E.S.Bigg and whether Sir William Tite was really the architect,

2. pictures of the pre 1840 maps of the area,
3. old pictures of the house,

4. The issue of the manors to which the Hyde belonged requires additional clarification (especially re St.Leonards and Beeding manors),

5. Any further documentation like insurance records, details of previous occupants etc.

I have got a small amount of information from the WSRO, but need to know more details that may be in publication elsewhere. Many thanks for any help you can give me.

Regards Michelle
