The Pursgloves of Westham - [WHAM]

This village started as a hamlet to the west of Pevensy Castle.  It now runs into Pevansy village and is a suburb of Eastbourne.  The settlements of Stone Cross and Hankham were incorporated in Westham Village as it developed.

St Mary's church is 11th century and may have been the first Norman church built in England.  St Luke's church was built in 1926, being close to North Langley.

Sarah Purslove [1707] married John Covill on 9 Feb 1766.
