Angmering Houses

Those extant c1840 in the Tithe Map and Apportionment

by RW Standing


The following list of houses and cottages is derived from the Tithe Maps and Apportionment for both Angmering and Ham, together with several taken from those for Rustington and Poling which had small outliers of parish land within the general area of Angmering.  These documents are on deposit at West Sussex Record Office.   The Angmering apportionment is dated 1839.


Photographs of many of the houses may be found in, Angmering in old picture postcards - Leslie Baker - European Library 2002.  Where this is so the Reference LB and Page number is given.


It should be observed that most of these photographs are of the houses in the early 20th century.  Some of them may have been rebuilt during the 19th century, and many alterations will have taken place since then.  Also a substantial number have been totally demolished. Therefore, in some instances, what a house name and location represents is a series of buildings, additions, and alterations, and not a structure unchanged over two hundred years.


The names of houses are those traditionally used, and as used in several books that have been published, including those by Leslie Baker. In many instances the houses and all record of their names have long gone and for some of these names have been created from historical associations.   These artificial names are in quotes, as for instance "Griffen's".


Notes about the houses relate primarily to the early Victorian period.


The location of each of groups of houses uses modern road names, such as the A27 and Arundel Road, as 19th century names were usually different and changeable.
