1756HistoryEchin WoodBuxted 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.
