Recollections
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:

Heasman, Samuel. 68. Living at Pages Gill and on the Forest near Forest Row. Born 22 Feb 1811 in Pages Gill and baptised at East Grinstead. Lived in this part of the Forest all his life has never been away [more than] a month at a time. Father used to go out litter cutting on the Forest and kept 2 cows and 3 or 4 young stock which ran on the Forest. Used to go out on the Forest with Father as a boy at 9 or 10 and helped him rake up the litter he had cut and took to cutting litter myself as soon as I was big enough and have cut every year since for anyone who wanted it. I have never sent any out of East Grinstead and Hartfield. There used to be certain people who had the right to turn out but everybody now takes what he wants.
