Great Granny Worked Here?

A Memory of Buxted

I do not have a specific memory myself but I think my great-granny worked here. On the 1901 census she is listed as a kitchen domestic. At the time Lady Ashburton and her children Alexander and Lilian Baring and many other servants are listed as living here. I am tracing my family tree and I am looking for any books or photographes taken around 1900 or any local historian that may have some more infomation about Buxted Park and the people that lived and worked there.                     
Anything at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
