Some information about the Olliver family taken from The Olliver/Oliver families were reasonably prolific locally in the 18th and 19th Centuries, being prosperous farmers or mill owners. The most famous local character in the 18th Century (and perhaps even today) was John Olliver (1709-1793), and considerable amounts have been written about him. John was an eccentric - he was also the Miller of Highdown Hill, a poet, rural philosopher, and a smuggler. Sails on his windmill we set to warn smugglers if the coast was clear. He kept his coffin under his bed and built his own tomb on Highdown some 30 years before he died. In lonely isolation, the tomb surrounded by railings still stands today. It is written that he had six grand-children but it is also written that he left the mill to two nephews provided they carried on milling. In the event, the windmill was pulled down in 1826.

Highdown Hill is about one and a half miles from the centre of Angmering village. The top of the hill is in Ferring, the east side in Goring, and the western slopes in Angmering.

Other Ollivers farmed or lived in the neighbouring villages of East Preston, Ferring and Rustington. One of the most infamous was farmer George Olliver of East Preston. He accused Edmund Bushby in 1831 of setting fire to one of his hay-ricks during the notorious Captain Swing riots. Bushby was hanged and the villagers of East Preston never forgave Olliver. Perhaps as an act of contrition, George Olliver built a school for East Preston.
