1785Eridge HouseEridge House, Eridge by Samuel Grimm and James Lambert (The Burrell Collection)Eridge GreenThe Burrell Collection
Samuel Hieronymous Grimm (1733-1794), artist, was born in Switzerland, studied in Berne and Paris before moving to Covent Garden, London in 1768. Besides his work as a commercial engraver and watercolour painter he is best known for some 2,500 commissioned watercolurs of antiquities, historic buildings and landscapes in the British Library (MSS 15537-48). Throughout the 1780s he toured Sussex, sketching churches, monuments, castles, abbeys and houses of the gentry
James Lambert, senior, (1725-1788) and his nephew James Lambert, junior, (1744-1799) were both landscape painters living in Lewes, Sussex. Between them they produced over 600 items, ranging from pencil sketches to large oils.
William Burrell (1732-96), antiquary, was born in Leadenhall Street, London, educated at Westminster School and Cambridge University. He became Chancellor of Worcester and Rochester Dioceses, M.P. for Haslemere and a Commissioner of Excise. From 1780 he employed Samuel Grimm and the Lamberts to make drawings of all the notable antiquities and important houses in Sussex, which he bequeathed to the British Museum in his will.

1790HistoryEridge GreenEeles' Frant
Guns were undoubtedly cast at Eridge Furnace and in the 18th century one of these stood outside the Gun Inn at Eridge Green and … in a journal in 1790 the following account appears
"(it) now lies at Eridge Green and has served for many years for the amusement of the people on a holiday or fair-day, when they collect money to buy gunpowder to threw the shell to a hill about a mile distant. The weight of the shell sinks so deep into the earth, that is costs no little pains to dig it out after each discharge, which is repeated as long as the money lasts."
