I hope you enjoy Cuckfield Connections - it’s been a labour of love for me. My family’s links with Cuckfield stretch back over several generations. Having inherited a treasure trove of letters dating from the early 19th century; I am now working towards building my knowledge of the Wallers and about their friends and clients in the local area and beyond.
As solicitors in the village they were highly influential. They were involved in serious crime cases, will probate, house sales and many other legal matters. For much of the time they lived and worked from Leyton House (now called Cuckfield House) at the top of the High Street adjacent to the road into the Recreation Ground. They were not only a well respected family but they were generous benefactors too - they donated the Church organ, for example. I would love to know more. Can you help? If you can help, drop me an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks Andy Revell.
