1610[North] Sussex[North] Sussex by John Norden and augmented by John SpeedPounsleyJohn 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 MordenPounsleyRobert 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.

1756HistoryPouncely LaneBuxted The Beautiful
The Bounds of Buxted Parish against Framfield begin from the side of the old River, now fill'd up, below the Fulling Mill in Hempstead Bottoms, and go on by that River side 'till you come to the little River, and by the side of that Stream, 'till you come to the Hedge that divides Mr. Durrant's Land belonging to Streel, and then by his Hedge Side, 'till you come to the New Inclosure taken from Echin Wood, which is all in Buxted; and then along Mr. Durrant's Hedge again 'till you come to Echin Wood. Across Echin Wood leaving three fields between that and the Lane, 'till you come to the Lane again; and then up the Lane by the Hoath's Hedge Side 'till you come to the Hundred House, and thro' the Hundred House Field to Pouncely Lane; and along the High-Way to the Meeting House - across the Stream along the High-Way, and round Cornwall's House - down to that River Side, just above the Furnace Pond; and then up from the River to the House where King lived, the last in Buxted.
