The Pursgloves of Barcombe - [BARC]

The village of Barcombe Cross is a few miles north of Lewes.  The village appears in Domesday as Berchamp, thought to be a reference to growing barley as a crop.  There was an Iron Age round house here and also a Roman villa and there is evidence of continuous settlement with the exception of the village evacuation during the great plague.

The parish church of St Mary serves Barcombe (Barcombe Cross) and the nearby villages of Spithurst and Littleworth.
