About Hugh Penfold

An interesting bit of information I received from someine in Sydney NSW Genealogy Centre about Hugh Penfold:

During 1620, Hugh Penfold of Angmering was fined by King James 1st of much of his property, however, he subsequently recovered most of it by marrying the daughter and heiress of Thomas Olliver to whom he had been forced to hand it over to". It seems that loyal subjects found ways and means of circumventing the sovereigns intentions even in the 1620's"

The First School in Angmering: First School (Older's Charity School) The first actual school in Angmering came about as a result of benefactor William Older (died 26 March 1680), a yeoman farmer who, in his Will, left £100 to purchase land on which to build a school and, after his wife's death, the rents from all his lands to pay for a schoolmaster. His Will records: I give the summe of One hundred pounds to Thomas Olliver of East Angmering aforesaid yeoman to bee by him laid out & disposed of so soon after my decease as conveniently can bee uppon Trusts & for the uses herein after menconed. That is to say That the said Thomas Olliver doe purchase an howse & garden in East Angmering aforesaid or West Angmering in the County aforesaid or a small parcell of Land & build an howse thereon to Humphrey Gratwicke of Hamm in the parrish of Angmering aforesaid Gent the said Thomas Olliver & Hugh Penfold of East Angmering aforesaid yeoman & to their heires for ever.

The first school opened in 1682 and was situated just a few yards to the south-east of where Angmering Public Library stands today (see plan below). Repairs appear to have been undertaken in the 1780s and some enlargement took place about 1818 as a result of £80 left to the school by William Olliver in his Will . The school stood there until 1853 when another benefactor, William Gratwicke Kinleside Gratwicke demolished the old building and built a new school in 1853 to the design of Samuel Teulon as the old school had become dilapidated.
