Under St Wilfrid , Sussex became the last of the seven traditional kingdoms of the heptarchy to undergo Christianisation. By the 8th century the kingdom had expanded to include the territory of the Haestingas. Around in the aftermath of the battle of Ellandun , Sussex was annexed by the kingdom of Wessex , a kingdom that with further expansion became the kingdom of England.

Defeating Harold at the Battle of Hastings , William the Conqueror established five later six semi-independent territories known as rapes. Castles were built, many the subject of sieges in the High Middle Ages. Sussex was of strategic importance on the most direct route between Angevin lands in England and Normandy.

Many Sussex ports, including the Cinque Ports , provided ships for military use. A succession crisis in the kingdom of France led to the Hundred Years War in which Sussex found itself on the frontline. Under Elizabeth intolerance continued on a lesser scale as many Catholics in Sussex lost their lives at this time.

As the Industrial Revolution took hold, the Wealden iron industry collapsed. The growth of the seaside resorts in the 18th century was especially significant in Sussex. Sussex men played a significant role in the first world war Battle of the Boar's Head At the war's end terms of the Armistice were agreed at Danny House.

In , the Lord-Lieutenant of Sussex was replaced with one each for East and West Sussex , which became separate ceremonial counties. In the 21st century a county day and a county flag were created for Sussex and a National Park was established for the South Downs. In a human-like tibia was found at Boxgrove near Chichester. In Upper Palaeolithic flintwork was found at a site in the Beedings. It is believed that during the Mesolithic Age nomadic hunters arrived in Sussex from Europe.

Large amounts of knives, scrapers, arrow heads and other tools have been found. Close to the River Ouse near Sharpsbridge , a polished axe, polished axe fragments, a chisel and other examples of Neolithic flintwork have been found. The fact that these implements were found close to the River Ouse suggests that some land clearance may have taken place in the river valley during the Neolithic period.

From about BC to about BC the mining of flint for use locally and also for wider trade was a major activity in Neolithic Sussex.

The transition from the late neolithic to the Early Bronze Age in Sussex is marked by the appearance of Beaker pottery. From the Bronze Age about BC settlements and burial sites have left their mark throughout Sussex. There are over fifty Iron Age sites that are known throughout the Sussex Downs.

Probably the best known are the hill-forts such as Cissbury Ring. Towards the end of the Iron Age in 75BC, people from the Atrebates one of the tribes of the Belgae , a mix of Celtic and German stock, started invading and occupying southern Britain. There are a variety of remains in the county from Roman times, coin hoards and decorated pottery have been found. The coast of Roman Britain had a series of defensive forts on them, and towards the end of the Roman occupation the coast was subject to raids by Saxons.

The foundation story is regarded as somewhat of a myth by most historians, although the archaeology suggests that Saxons did start to settle in the area in the late 5th century. The See of Chichester was coterminous with the county borders. There were reports that the bones of some of the English dead were still being found on the hillside some years later. William built Battle Abbey at the site of the battle of Hastings, and the exact spot where Harold fell was marked by the high altar.

The 16 people, in charge of the manors, were known as the Tenentes in capite in other words the chief tenants who held their land directly from the crown. The county was of great importance to the Normans; Hastings and Pevensey being on the most direct route for Normandy. Historically the land holdings of each Saxon lord had been scattered, but now the lords lands were determined by the borders of the rape.

The county boundary was long and somewhat indeterminate on the north, owing to the dense forest of Andredsweald. During the Hundred Years' War , Sussex found itself on the frontline, convenient both for intended invasions and retaliatory expeditions by licensed French pirates. Also at this time, Amberley and Bodiam castles were built to defend the upper reaches of navigable rivers. Under Elizabeth I , religious intolerance continued albeit on a lesser scale, with several people being executed for their Catholic beliefs.

Sussex escaped the worst ravages of the English Civil War , although in there were sieges at Arundel and Chichester, and a skirmish at Haywards Heath when Royalists marching towards Lewes were intercepted by local Parliamentarians. The Royalists were routed with around killed or taken prisoner. The Sussex women are very nice in their dress and in their houses. The men and boys wear smock-frocks more than they do in some counties. The Sussex coast was greatly modified by the social movement of sea bathing for health which became fashionable among the wealthy in the second half of the 18th century.

Railways spread across Sussex in the 19th century and county councils were created for Sussex's eastern and western divisions in With the declaration of the World War II , Sussex found itself part of the country's frontline with its airfields playing a key role in the Battle of Britain and with its towns being some of the most frequently bombed.

Since its creation in the fifth century, Sussex has been subject to periodic reform of its local governance. After the Reform Act of Sussex was divided into the eastern division and the western division, these divisions were coterminous with the two archdeaconries of Chichester and Lewes. In the post-war era, the New Towns Act designated Crawley as the site of a new town.

As part of the Local Government Act , the eastern and western divisions of Sussex were made into the ceremonial counties of East and West Sussex in Boundaries were changed and a large part of the rape of Lewes was transferred from the eastern division into West Sussex, along with Gatwick Airport, which was historically part of the county of Surrey. Although it is administered as the two ceremonial counties of East and West Sussex, there continue to be a range of organisations that operate throughout the ancient borders of Sussex such as the Diocese of Chichester , Sussex Police , the Sussex Archaeological Society the Sussex History Society and the Sussex Wildlife Trust.

In , Sussex Day was created to celebrate Sussex's rich culture and history. Based on the traditional emblem of Sussex, a blue shield with six gold martlets , the flag of Sussex was recognised by the Flag Institute in In , Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government Eric Pickles formally recognised and acknowledged the continued existence of England's 39 historic counties, including Sussex.

The system of hundreds had been introduced during the time of the Saxons. At the time of the Domesday Survey, Sussex contained fifty nine hundreds. These courts were in private hands in Sussex; either of the Church, or of great barons and local lords. Independent from the hundreds were the boroughs. The county court had been held at Lewes and Shoreham until , when it was moved to Chichester.

A petition to parliament of from the 'community of Sussex' asked to have a place assigned for the holding of the county court. In — there was construction of a county gaol, in Chichester Castle , however the castle was demolished in around and another gaol built on the same site. In the middle of the 16th century, the assizes were usually held at Horsham or East Grinstead. It is believed that the last case of someone being executed by being pressed to death peine forte et dure , in the country, was carried out in at Horsham.

Witnesses told the court, that they had heard him speak so he was taken back to Horsham gaol. The sheriff 's function was to be responsible for the civil justice within the county. Then in the two counties again shared one sheriff, finally each county was given their own sheriff in During time of internal unrest or foreign invasions it was usual for the monarch to appoint a lieutenant of the county.

As with the Sheriff, the post of Lord Lieutenant of Sussex was ended, in , by the local government re-organisation. Private jurisdictions, both ecclesiastical and lay, played a large part in the county. The chief ecclesiastical franchises were those of the Archbishop of Canterbury, [30] the bishop of Chichester and also that of Battle Abbey which was founded by William the Conqueror. The Cinque Ports were a group of coastal towns in Kent and Sussex that were given ancient rights and privileges.

Borough-English was the custom that lands should descend to the youngest son or daughter, or, in default of issue, to the youngest brother of the deceased. Gavelkind was the practice of partible or equal inheritance, as opposed to primogeniture. It was predominant in Kent but was also found, across the county border, in Sussex. Borough-English and gavelkind were finally abolished in England and Wales by the Administration of Estates Act [85].

Several polytheistic religions were practised in Sussex before Christianity was firmly established in Sussex in the 7th century, including Celtic polytheism and Roman religion.

Christianity was practised during part of the Romano-British period, but was replaced in the 5th century by the polytheistic religion of the South Saxons. According to Bede , it was the last area of what was to become England to be converted. In the authorities organised a census of places of worship in England and Wales. The Parliamentary history of the county began in the 13th century.

In , the first year for which a return of knights of the shire is available, Henry Hussey and William de Etchingham were elected. Although there had been various proposals to reform the system from , it was not till when a series of factors saw the Reform Act introduced.

After the Reform Act of Sussex was divided into the eastern division and the western division and two representatives were elected for each division. Cavendish and H. Curteis Esquire were elected in the eastern division and the Earl of Surrey and Lord John George Lennox were elected for the western division. Arundel, Horsham, Midhurst and Rye were each deprived of a member in , Chichester and Lewes in , and Hastings in Sussex, from its position, was constantly the scene of preparations for invasion, and was often concerned in rebellions.

In there was a civil war in England between the forces of a group of barons led by Simon de Montfort , against the royalist forces led by Prince Edward , in the name of Henry III , known as the Second Barons' War. Royalist forces tried to storm the hill but ultimately were defeated by the barons'. At the time of the English Civil War the counties sympathies were divided, Arundel supported the king, Chichester, Lewes and the Cinque Ports were for parliament. The roundhead army under Sir William Waller besieged Arundel and after its fall marched on Chichester and restored it to parliament.

At the beginning of the 19th century, agricultural labourers conditions took a turn for the worse with an increasing amount of them becoming unemployed, those in work faced their wages being forced down.

The Swing riots were accompanied by action against local farmers and land owners. Typically, what would happen is a threatening letter would be sent to a local farmer or leader demanding that automated equipment such as threshing machines should be withdrawn from service, wages should be increased and there would be a threat of consequences if this did not happen, the letter would be signed by a mythical Captain Swing.

This would be followed up by the destruction of farm equipment and occasionally arson. Eventually the army was mobilised to contain the situation in the eastern part of the county, whereas in the west the Duke of Richmond took action against the protesters by the use of the yeomanry and special constables.

One of the main grievances of the Swing protesters had been what they saw as inadequate Poor Law benefits, Sussex had the highest poor-relief costs during the agricultural depression of to the s and its workhouses were full. During the French revolutionary and Napoleonic wars — , a European coalition was formed, that included Britain, with the intention of crushing the newly founded French Republic , so defensive measures were taken in Sussex.

In at Brighton two batteries were built on the town's east and west cliffs replacing older installations. In the s, possible wars with France prompted more defence building, including the fort at Newhaven. At the outbreak of the First World War in August , the landowners of the county employed their local leadership roles to recruit volunteers for the nation's forces.

On the Sussex boys are stirring In the wood-land and the Downs We are moving in the hamlet We are rising in the town; For the call is King and Country Since the foe has asked for war, And when danger calls, or duty We are always to the fore.

From Lowthers Lambs marching song. With the declaration of the Second World War, on 3 September , Sussex found itself part of the country's frontline with its airfields playing a key role in the Battle of Britain and with its towns being some of the most frequently bombed. During the war every part of Sussex was affected.

During the lead-up to the D-Day landings, the people of Sussex were witness to the build-up of military personnel and materials, including the assembly of landing crafts and construction of Mulberry harbours off the county's coast.

A legacy of the D-Day landings are the sections of Mulberry harbour that lay broken and abandoned on the sea floor 2 miles 3. Sussex was an industrial county, from the stone age, with the early production of flint implements until when the use of coal and steam power moved industry nearer the coalfields of the north and midlands. Sussex has retained much of its rural nature: apart from the coastal strip, it has few large towns.

The wide range of soil types in the county leads to great variations in the patterns of farming. The Wealden parts are mostly wet sticky clays or drought-prone acid sands and often broken up into small irregular fields and woods by the topography, making it unsuitable for intensive arable farming.

Pastoral or mixed farming has always been the pattern here, with field boundaries often little changed since the medieval period. Sussex cattle are the descendants of the draught oxen, which continued to be used in the Weald longer than in other parts of England.

Agriculturalist Arthur Young commented in the early 18th century that the cattle of the Weald "must be unquestionably ranked among the best of the kingdom. The chalk downlands were traditionally grazed by large numbers of small Southdown sheep, suited to the low fertility of the pasture, until the coming of artificial fertiliser made cereal growing worthwhile.

Yields are still limited by the alkalinity of the soil. Apart from a few areas of alluvial loam soil in the river valleys, the best and most intensively farmed soils are on the coastal plain, where large-scale vegetable growing is commonplace.

Glasshouse production is also concentrated along the coast where hours of sunshine are greater than inland. There are still fishing fleets, notably at Rye and Hastings, but the number of boats is much reduced. Historically, the fisheries were of great importance, including cod , herring, mackerel, sprats, plaice, sole, turbot, shrimps, crabs, lobsters, oysters, mussels, cockles, whelks and periwinkles. Bede records that St Wilfrid , when he visited the county in , taught the people the art of net-fishing.

At the time of the Domesday survey , the fisheries were extensive and no fewer than salinae saltworks existed. The customs of the Brighton fishermen were documented in Iron Age wrought iron was produced by means of a bloomery followed by reheating and hammering. The Romans made full use of this resource, continuing and intensifying native methods, and iron slag was widely used as paving material on the Roman roads of the area. The industry is thought to have been organised by the Classis Britannica , the Roman navy.

Little evidence has been found of iron production after the Romans left until the ninth century, when a primitive bloomery, of a continental style, was built at Millbrook on Ashdown Forest , with a small hearth for reheating the blooms nearby. This allowed a continuous process that usually ran during the winter and spring seasons, ceasing when water supplies to drive the bellows dwindled in the summer.

Henry VIII urgently needed cannon for his new coastal forts, but casting these in the traditional bronze would have been very expensive. In Buxted the local vicar, the Reverend William Levett , was also a gun-founder. He recruited a Ralf Hogge to help him produce cannon and in his employee cast an iron muzzle-loading cannon. Hogge put a rebus on his house, with a hog on it as a pun for his name. The large supply of wood in the county made it a favourable centre for the industry, all smelting being done with charcoal till the middle of the 18th century.

Glass production in the English midlands using coal for the smelting process, plus opposition to the use of timber in Sussex, led to the collapse of the Sussex glass-making industry in When the Romans arrived in Sussex around AD 43, they would have found remote bands of people smelting iron in the forest of Andresweald.

The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle , commissioned in the 9th century by Alfred the Great , provides a description of the forest that covered the Sussex Weald. The Weald was not the only area of Sussex that was forested in Saxon times: for example at the western end of Sussex is the Manhood Peninsula, which these days is largely deforested. The name is probably derived from the Old English maene-wudu meaning "men's wood" or "common wood" indicating that it was once woodland. However the parliamentary bills were never passed, with the result that the county's forests were decimated.

Jove's oak, the war-like ash, veined elm, the softer beech Short hazel, maple plain, light asp and bending wych Tough holly and smooth birch, must altogether burn. What should the builder serve, the forger's turn When under publick good, base private gain takes hold.

And we, poor woeful woods, to ruin lastly sold. From Michael Drayton's Poly-Olbion []. Despite parliamentary efforts the forests of Sussex continued to be consumed.

However, in Abraham Darby discovered how to replace charcoal with coke in his blast furnaces, which resulted in production being moved nearer the coal mines. In there were about , sheep in Sussex. In an act that prohibited the export of "unwrought or unfinished cloths" led to the demise of the industry in Sussex, and by the beginning of the 18th century it had virtually collapsed; Daniel Defoe commented, in , that the "..

As much of the Mid Sussex area has clay not far under the surface, clay has in the past been a focus of industry in central Sussex, in particular in the Burgess Hill area. In the first quarter of the 20th century, Burgess Hill and the Hassocks and Hurstpierpoint areas had many kilns, clay pits and similar infrastructure to support the clay industry: nowadays the majority of this form of industry has left the area, although it still can be seen in place names such as "Meeds Road", "The Kiln", or Oakmeeds Community College , which is named after the oak trees in the area and Meeds Pottery, a once significant pottery in the centre of Burgess Hill.

At the height of the success of this industry, tiles and bricks from Sussex were used to build landmarks such as Manchester 's G-Mex. In the local district council produced plans to close the only remaining tile works in the area and use the site for residential development. Then in the last tile works moved to a new home in Surrey.

After the Romans left, roads in the country fell into disrepair and in Sussex the damage was compounded by the transport of material for the iron industry. Roads had been maintained by the parishes, in a system established in , a system that had proved increasingly ineffective given the relentless increase in traffic. Other turnpike acts followed with the roads being built and maintained by local trusts and parishes. The majority of the roads were maintained by a toll levied on each passenger who usually would have been transported by stage coach.

A few roads were still maintained by the parishes with no toll levied. The last turnpike to be constructed in the county was between Cripps Corner and Hawkhurst in At the beginning of the 20th century, nearly all the first class roads had been turnpikes in The two counties of East and West Sussex only have a total of 12 kilometres 7. These two roads provide the major routes across Sussex. The route is only dual-carriageway for part of its length; both roads run parallel to the Sussex coast.

The first canals that were constructed in Sussex can be described as navigations , in that their purpose was to make the lower reaches of the county's rivers navigable. When the railways arrived in Sussex, they provided an alternative to the canals and waterways.

The canal companies' revenue quickly dropped, resulting in most of them closing for business by the beginning of World War I. In Richard Trevithick , a Cornish engineer, built the first steam locomotive for a railway. The Manchester to Liverpool railway of was the first to convey passengers and goods entirely by mechanical traction. Stephenson's Rocket , which won the famous Rainhill trials in , was the first steam locomotive designed to pull passenger traffic quickly.

Brighton's proximity to London made it an ideal place to provide short holidays for Londoners. In the 18th century Brighton had been a town in terminal decline. These two events increased the number of visitors to the town. After the opening of the Brighton line, within a few years branches were made to Chichester to the west and Hastings and Eastbourne to the east.

SR was the smallest of four groups that were brought together by the Railways Act SR decided to electrify their network using the third rail DC system. Following John Major 's victory in the General Election , the conservative government published a white paper , indicating their intention to privatise the railways.

The government went ahead with their plans and franchises were awarded to train operating companies TOC. This consists of the Southern who operate southcoast and services to Victoria and London Bridge and Thameslink for services from Brighton to Bedford via London. Southeastern services between eastern Sussex and London. The two major ports in Sussex are at Newhaven , opened in , and at Shoreham opened in Other harbours that existed such as Fishbourne , Steyning, Old Shoreham, Meeching and Bulverhythe are long since silted up and have been built over.

Most of the original Palace and its estate is buried under the village of Fishbourne and may be lost forever, but it is clear this was a home for a wealthy family, and perhaps the king of Sussex since in Roman times, the Birdham Channel of Chichester Harbour was navigable right up to Fishbourne Creek, meaning the palace could control the international traffic of the Roman Empire.

Bignor Roman Villa is another fine Roman building on a farmstead, discovered by accident.

Chichester Harbour has a sandbar across the entrance that has caused the main channels leading to Emsworth, Bosham, Fishbourne and Birdham to silt up.

Much of the Sussex coast has been tamed by concrete barriers, reinforced by shingle banks, particularly in Bognor, Worthing and Brighton. These changes have shifted the problems elsewhere, coastlines like Selsey are now vulnerable to the increased water inching inland each year. Britain was on the fringes of the Roman Empire and did not have the resources to help those in Sussex deal with the threat of the Saxons.

Payments to the Roman army were halted , and Emperor Honorius advised local governors that they would have to plan their own defence. This led to the Saxons invading the south-east of England, where they created and gave the name to the Kingdom of Sussex. The Sussex sea levels and coastlines have seen major changes over the last two millennia which has had a big influence on the Sussex way of life.

In Roman times, for example, the tidal inlet of the main rivers meeting the Sussex coast was much deeper than they are today. More recent history has seen large storms impacting on the use of harbours and the ability to navigate rivers as land falls into the sea. The biggest changes can be seen at Steyning and Bramber, that were once major ports, but the silting up of the River Adur previously known as the Shoreham River has left them dry. The port of Old Shoreham , established in the 11th century in response to the changes, is itself now not as significant as it once was.

The ancient romans in Sussex.

Evidence from a fossil of Boxgrove Man Homo heidelbergensis shows sussex Sussex has been inhabited for at least settlements, years. It is thought to be the oldest human fossil ever discovered in Britain.

The county is also rich in remains from the Bronze Age and Iron Age. Prior to Roman invasions it was occupied by a Belgic tribe called the Atrebates. Togibubnus ruled over much of Sussex when the Roman east of Britain began and formed most of the Roman canton of the Regni.

Under St WilfridSussex became the last of the seven traditional roman of the heptarchy to undergo Christianisation. By the 8th century the kingdom had expanded to include the territory of the Haestingas. Around in the aftermath of the battle of EllandunSussex was annexed by the kingdom of Romana kingdom that with east expansion became the kingdom of England.

Defeating Harold at the Battle of HastingsWilliam the Conqueror established five later six semi-independent territories known as rapes. Castles were built, many the subject of sieges in the High Middle Ages. Sussex was of strategic importance on the most direct route between Angevin lands in England and Normandy.

Many Sussex ports, including the Cinque Portsprovided ships for military use. A succession crisis sussex the kingdom of France led to the Hundred Years War in which Sussex found itself on the frontline. Under Elizabeth intolerance continued on a lesser scale as many Catholics in Sussex lost their lives at this time. As the Industrial Revolution took hold, the Wealden iron industry collapsed. The growth of the seaside resorts in the 18th century was especially significant in Sussex.

Sussex men played a significant role in the first world war Battle of the Boar's Head At the war's end terms of the Armistice were agreed at Danny House. Inthe Lord-Lieutenant of Sussex was replaced with one each for East and West Sussexwhich became separate ceremonial counties.

In the 21st century a county day and a county flag were created for Sussex and a National Park was established roman the South Downs. In a human-like tibia was found at Boxgrove near Chichester.

In Upper Palaeolithic flintwork was found sussex a site in the Beedings. It is believed that during the Mesolithic Age nomadic hunters arrived in Sussex from Europe. Large amounts of knives, scrapers, arrow heads sussex other tools have been found. Close to the River Ouse near Sharpsbridgea polished axe, polished settlements fragments, a chisel and other examples of Neolithic flintwork have been found.

The fact that these implements were found close to the River Ouse suggests that some land clearance may have taken place in the river valley during the Neolithic period.

From about BC to about BC the mining of flint for use locally and also for wider trade was a major activity in Neolithic Sussex. The transition from the late neolithic to east Early Bronze Age in Sussex east marked by the appearance of Beaker pottery. From the Bronze Age about BC roman and burial sites have left their mark throughout Sussex.

There are over fifty Iron Age sites that are known throughout the Sussex Downs. Probably the best known are the hill-forts such as Cissbury Ring. Towards the end of the Iron Age in 75BC, people from the Atrebates one of the tribes of the Belgaea mix of Celtic and German stock, started invading and occupying southern Britain. There are a variety of remains in the county from Roman times, coin hoards and decorated pottery have been found. The coast of Roman Britain had a series of defensive forts on them, and towards the end of the Roman occupation the coast was subject to raids by Saxons.

The foundation story is regarded as somewhat of a myth by most historians, although the archaeology suggests that Saxons did start to settle in the area in the late 5th century. The See of Chichester was coterminous with the county borders. There were reports that the bones of some of the English dead were still being found on the hillside some years later.

William built Battle Abbey at the site of the battle of Hastings, and the exact spot where Harold fell was marked by the high altar. The 16 people, in charge of the manors, were known as the Tenentes in capite in other words the chief tenants who held their land directly from the east. The county was of great importance to the Normans; Hastings and Pevensey being on the most direct route settlements Normandy.

Historically roman land holdings of each Saxon lord had been scattered, but now the lords lands were determined by the borders of the rape. The county boundary was long and somewhat indeterminate on the north, owing to sussex dense forest of Andredsweald.

During the Hundred Years' WarSussex found itself on the sussex, convenient both for intended invasions and retaliatory expeditions by licensed French pirates. Also at this time, Amberley and Bodiam castles were built to defend the upper reaches of navigable rivers.

Under Elizabeth Ireligious intolerance continued albeit on a lesser scale, with several people being executed for their Catholic beliefs. Sussex escaped the worst ravages of the English Civil Waralthough in there were sieges at Arundel and Chichester, and a skirmish at Haywards Heath when Royalists marching towards Lewes were intercepted by local Parliamentarians.

The Royalists were routed with around killed or taken prisoner. The Sussex women east very nice in their dress and in their houses. The men and boys wear smock-frocks more than they do in some counties. The Sussex coast was greatly modified by the social movement of sea bathing for health which became fashionable among the east in the second half of the 18th century.

Railways spread across Sussex in the 19th century and county councils were created for Sussex's eastern and western divisions in With the declaration of the World War IISussex found itself part of the country's frontline with its airfields playing a key role in the Battle of Britain and with its towns being some of the most frequently bombed.

Since its creation in the fifth century, Sussex has been subject to periodic reform of its local governance. After the Reform Act of Sussex was divided into the eastern division and the western division, these divisions were coterminous with the two archdeaconries of Chichester and Lewes. In the post-war era, the New Towns Act designated Settlements as the site of a new town. As part of the Local Government Actthe eastern and western divisions of Sussex were made into the ceremonial counties of East and West Sussex in Boundaries were changed and east large part of the roman of Lewes was transferred from the eastern division into West Sussex, along with Gatwick Airport, which was historically part of the county of Surrey.

Although it is administered as the two ceremonial counties of East and West Sussex, sussex continue to be a range of organisations that operate throughout the ancient borders of Sussex such as the Diocese of ChichesterSussex Policethe Sussex Archaeological Society the Sussex History Society and the Sussex Wildlife Trust.

InSussex Day was created to celebrate Sussex's settlements culture and history. Based on the traditional emblem of Sussex, a blue shield with six gold martletsthe flag of Sussex was recognised by the Flag Institute in InSecretary of State for Communities and Local Government Eric Pickles formally recognised and acknowledged the continued existence of England's 39 historic counties, including Sussex. The system of hundreds had been introduced during the time of the Saxons.

At the time of the Domesday Survey, Sussex contained fifty nine hundreds. These courts were in private hands in Sussex; either of the Church, or of great barons and local lords. Independent from the hundreds were the boroughs. The county court had been held at Lewes and Shoreham untilwhen it was moved to Chichester. A petition to parliament of from the 'community of Sussex' asked to have a place assigned for the holding of the county court.

In — there was construction of a county gaol, in Chichester Castlehowever the castle was demolished in around and another gaol built on the same site. In the middle of the 16th century, the assizes were usually held at Horsham or East Settlements.

It is believed that the last case of someone being executed by being pressed to death sussex forte et durein the country, was carried out in at Horsham. Witnesses told the court, that they had heard him speak so he was taken back to Horsham gaol.

The sheriff 's function was to be responsible for the civil justice within the county. Then in the two counties again shared one sheriff, finally each county was given their own sheriff in During time of internal unrest or foreign invasions it was usual for the monarch to appoint a lieutenant of the county. As with the Sheriff, the post of Lord Lieutenant of Sussex was ended, inby the local government re-organisation.

Private jurisdictions, both ecclesiastical and lay, played a large part in the county. The chief ecclesiastical franchises were roman of the Archbishop of Canterbury, [30] the bishop of Chichester and sussex that of Battle Abbey which was founded by William the Conqueror. The Cinque Ports were a group of coastal towns in Kent and Sussex that were east ancient rights and privileges.

Borough-English was the custom that lands should settlements to the youngest son or daughter, or, in default of issue, to the youngest brother of roman deceased. Sussex was the practice of partible or equal inheritance, as opposed to primogeniture. It was predominant in Kent but settlements also found, across the county border, in Sussex. Borough-English and gavelkind were finally abolished in England and Wales by the Administration of Estates Act [85].

Several polytheistic religions were practised in Sussex before Christianity was firmly established in Sussex in the 7th century, including Celtic polytheism and Roman religion. Christianity was practised during part of the Romano-British period, but was replaced in the 5th roman by the polytheistic religion of the South Saxons. According to Bedeit was the last area of what was to become England to be converted.

In the authorities organised a east of places of settlements in England and Wales. The Parliamentary history of the county began in the 13th century.

Inthe first year for which a return of knights of the shire is available, Henry Hussey and William de Etchingham were elected. Although there had been various proposals to reform the system fromit was not till when a series of factors saw the Reform Act introduced. After the Reform Act of Sussex was divided into the eastern division and the western division and two representatives were elected for each division.

Cavendish and H. Curteis Esquire were elected in the eastern division and the Earl of Surrey and Lord John George Lennox were elected for the western division. Arundel, Horsham, Midhurst and Rye were roman deprived of a member settlementsChichester and Lewes inand Hastings in Sussex, east its position, was constantly the scene of preparations for invasion, and was often concerned settlements rebellions.

In there was a civil war in England between the forces of a group of barons led by Simon de Montfortagainst the royalist forces led by East Edwardin the name of Henry Romanknown as the Second Barons' War. Royalist forces tried to storm the hill but ultimately were defeated by the barons'. At the time of the English Civil War roman counties sympathies were divided, Arundel supported the king, Chichester, Lewes and the Cinque Ports were for parliament.

The roundhead army under Sir William Waller besieged Arundel and after its fall marched on Chichester and restored settlements to parliament. At the beginning of the 19th century, agricultural labourers conditions took a turn for the worse with an increasing amount of them becoming unemployed, those in work faced their wages being forced down.

The Roman invasion in Sussex is sometimes portrayed as a friendly or invited one, but this glosses settlements the fighting that took place.

Tognidubnus whose name is sometimes spelt Cogidubnusone of the leading lights of the Regnenses tribe who lived in Sussex and Surrey was the man for the job. The Romans decided to build a strong garrison settlements protect their position and they chose East as the site for it. They called their town Noviomagus Reginorum. There settlements Roman baths near West Street, buildings which were probably barracks in Chapel Street east in all likelihood a basilica under the site of Chichester Cathedral.

There was also sussex amphitheatre which sussex excavated and then built over. This is sussex partly underneath and partly near roman Market sussex park towards Whyke.

This was excavated in and is now sited on the outside of the Roman Rooms in North Street, Chichester. Fishbourne Roman Palace is probably the roman preserved, best presented and largest Roman Palace in Britain. It is likely that Togidubnus and his successors lived here. In Roman times the Birdham Channel of Chichester Harbour would settlements been navigable roman up to Fishbourne Creek and so the Settlements was well sited to control all the important international traffic within this small corner of the Roman Empire.

Sussex was a long way from Rome and by when Sussex folk settlements starting to east about the threat of the Saxons to Sussex they were told by the Emperor Honorius to sussex for themselves.
