West Sussex memories

East Harting Stores

My name was Carol Upfield and my father was Albert known as Bert. I remember going to see my grandfather in the shop when I was about three, I am now 65, but my father and his brothers and sisters were I beliave born there. I lived in Nyewood until I was five, next to Les and family. My dad's other brothers Reg and Jack lived down the road. My Aunt Freda Dowsett, Dad's sister, lived at Hollis Farm, Hollis Lane and Rosie Edwards his youngest sister at the end of the lane. Most of my family have lived and worked in this area since the 1700s and maybe before. My grandfather Walter John owned the house and shop, you can see it in the distance in the photo of East Harting, the white building on the left. It was in future years called The Upfields. I do have a few photos of the the house. It is now called Hameford House. Just wonder if anyone has any history or photos?... Read more

Scott Family And Martin Family

My great grandad, John Scott, was born in Harting South in 1849. He lived in East Harting St in 1881 at census time. My great great grandma was George Martin born in 1807 in South Charting. My granddad was David John Scott who also lived in Charting and worked at Uppark till they moved to Plumstead, London.

School Years 1960-69

Hi I attended the Primary School here from 1960-1967. My name was Laura Carter. My teachers were called Miss Symons & Mr Williams. I have lovely memories of wandering the fields around Pays Farm where my Dad worked, and long walks on the downs.  I had a lovely happy childhood and remember clearly playing marbles in the playground, walking up to the church hall for an awful school dinner! and even being made to eat everything on the plate.  I have a whole school photo taken in about 1966 but unfortunately remember very few of the children names. Does any else share these memories?

Family Connections

Hi, My family on my mother's side all come from South Harting, my grandfather was Fred Chambers who passed away in 1982, my grandmother is May Chambers who is nearly 90 now. My mother is Linda Dyke (nee Chambers), and I have an aunt, Jen Johns (nee Chambers) who still lives in the village. My grandparents had an old boy who lived with them, we alll knew him as Joe, I think his real name was Harry James (Pook is a surname for him that rings a bell, but I can't be too sure.), he died in the late 1970s. I hope these memories/names help with any research into South Harting, a lot of the old timers from my upbringing are no longer with us and village history needs to be kept alive.

446 Bepton - The Lovely Old House

I stayed a number of times at this address whith my father's relatives, an Aunty Nance and Uncle Jack (possibly a Howick connection).

The Village c1960, Stedham
Enlarge photo |  More about this photo

I lived in Stedham from the time I was born in 1944 until I left to get married in 1968. I lived at 36 Tye Hill with my mother and grandmother until the war finished and my father came home. I remember my mother saying that sometime after he came home that we moved into one of the houses on the right after going over the bridge at Bridgefoot. We lived there until we moved into Rotherhill Lodge, which is a bungalow on the left of the drive that leads to what we referred to as "The Big House" where our landlord and landlady lived. This is at the west end of the village. From the age of 4 until 11 I went to the village school, and then went on to the Secondary Modern School in Midhurst until I was 15 yrs old. The scene in this photo hasn't changed hardly at all. The building on the right was a pub called The Gnu Inn which in the 60's... Read more

War Years

I was evacuated to Compton, West Sussex, in September 1939. My brother Geff, was with me at the Manor house. Also there were the Gregory brothers; their mother had volunteed to help, and looked after us. The Manor was owned by the Langdale sisters. When we arrived at the village hall, we had to wait to be selected. The Vicar, acting for the Langdales, chose us - how lucky we were. Such a wonderful time in our life. My sister, Pat, unfortantely was sent to another village, Rowlands Casle. After 10 months, and no sign of the expected war, we returned to Tooting SW London. It was just in time to experience the start of the Blitz. We were very lucky our house escaped direct hits, but all around us were not so lucky. I moved to NZ in 1950.
