Recollections
At Heasmans Rough
Ashdown Forest dispute
 

During The Ashdown Forest Dispute 1876-1882 commoners and land owners were interviewed by the solicitor William Raper. Their comments were recorded in a series of notebooks:

Haffenden, Mark. Living at Heasmans Rough on the Forest close to Suntings. Born Christmas 1804 at Heathfield. Came from there in the spring of 1845 and lived in a cottage by Woolvins Shop near Forest Row and worked on the Brighton line off and on for 2 years. At the end of the first 6 months I moved to Jackson's place and lived there 4 years and then moved to Newbridge and lived there about a year and then moved up by the Ridge for 4 years. Then I moved to Upper Parrock for 2 years, then to Forest Row for 6 years, then to Robert Edwards Farm 3 years, then to New Bridge again for some years, then to New Lodge for nearly 2 years, then back to New Bridge for some years, then to my present place 6 years last Christmas.
