Pigot & Co Directory 1840 for Sussex ~ Hastings & St Leonards


HASTINGS is the chief of the cinque ports, a market town, and borough both corporate and parliamentary, having separate jurisdiction, locally in the rape of its name – 62 mile S.E. from London, 71 E. from Chichester, 40 E. from Brighton, and 37 S. from Maidstone (in Kent); situated in a vale, surrounded and sheltered on all sides, save on the south (which is open to the sea), by high hills. The air is pure, and remarkably salubrious; the landscapes vary with every change of position; and the country abounds with walks and rides of surpassing beauty. Some fragments of a wall, by which the town was formerly environed, are still to be seen. On a hill, eastward of the town, are the banks and fosses of an encampment, by some ascribed to the Romans, but by other historians to William the Norman, previous to his memorable battle with Harold. Westward of the town, on the edge of the cliff, are the walls and some other vestiges of a castle of great strength, and formerly of superior importance, erected by the Conqueror in 1067. Within the walls of the castle, the rubbish having been cleared away, were disclosed the remains of the church and conventual buildings of a free college, supposed to have been founded by Henry de Eu, in the reign of Henry I. The church is more than one hundred feet in length; and adjoining it are to be seen the remains of the ancient parish church of Saint Mary-in-the-Castle, with the prebendal buildings attached: the whole of which, forming a deeply interesting mass of ruins, have been enclosed by the Earl of Chichester. Hastings, as the chief of the cinque ports, was in past ages obliged to provide, at forty days’ notice, twenty-one vessels for the king’s service, with provisions, arms and men fit for war, and to maintain them a fortnight at their own charge; if, when that time elapsed, their further service was required, the expense was defrayed by the crown. The harbour, now called the Stade, was formerly a secure anchorage for ships; but in the reign of Elizabeth the pier was destroyed by a storm, and never since been restored; it is in contemplations, however, to construct a harbour off the Stade. Vessels of from fifty to one hundred tons burthen come up here, and are moved up and sown the Stade with surprising celerity. At the west end of the Stade is a fort, which some time back was mounted with twelve-pounders. As a watering place Hastings has long been in high repute, and is rapidly increasing in celebrity. The most excellent accommodations are provided for sea-bathing; the ‘Marne Old Warm Baths,’ and the ‘Pelham Baths,’ are of a superior description; and the libraries, hotels and lodging-houses are in every respect worthy of this fashionable town. Races, established in 1827, and assemblies, concerts and regattas in the season, contribute to the amusement of the sojourner: nothing, indeed, appears to be wanting to promote the comfort and pleasure of the numerous and distinguished visiters to this place. From the ancient charters it is evident that the commerce of this port was in former days of considerable importance; bat at present its principle trade depends upon the fishery – about fifteen hundred barrels of herrings are annually dried and sent to different markets. A foreign trade in butter, cheese, rape, &c. from Rotterdam is carried on; and the duties on the imports have recently been allowed to be received by the officers of the customs at Hastings, who likewise superintend the delivery of all foreign merchandize: this is a great convenience to the merchants, who heretofore had to go to Rye to pay the duties, and bring and officer hither to deliver the goods. Coastwise there is a trade in timber, lime, corn, iron and coal, but not to any great amount. Boat and ship building is prosecuted with some activity, and there are several large breweries. Previous to the operation of the municipal act the government of the town was regulated by a charter granted by James II. The corporation now consists of a mayor, six aldermen and eighteen councillors, under the style of ‘the mayor, jurats and commonalty of the town and port of Hastings, in the county of Sussex:’ the borough, which is divided into two wards, is provided with a commission of the peace, by virtue of which quarter sessions are held for the borough, before the recorder and justices; and a court of record sits, for pleas and debts to any amount, once a fortnight. The elective francise was conferred upon this borough in the 43rd of Edward III; the mayor is the returning officer, and the present representatives are the Right Hon. Joseph Planta and Robert Hollond, Esq. Hastings confers the title of marquess upon the noble family of Rawdon-Hastings. The town comprises the parishes of All Saints and St. Clement, both united in one rectory, of which the Rev. John Goodge Foyster is the present incumbent. The churches, which are constructed of flint and stone, have been both handsome edifices, of considerable antiquity, repeatedly repaired, altered and enlarged. There are two episcopal chapels – one in Pelham-crescent, and elegant structure, erected by the Earl of Chichester; the other at the barrack ground, endowed by Mrs. Millward. A new and very neat baptist chapel has also been recently erected in Wellington-square; and there likewise are places of worship for Wesleyan methodists and independents. Between Hastings and Saint Leonards a Roman Catholic establishment has lately been founded, dedicated to All Souls, the grounds of which occupy nine acres. The charities of Hastings comprise several excellent ones of a scholastic nature, including endowed schools, others upon the national system, and Sunday schools; besides apprenticeship funds; the Magdalene charity for the distribution of alms to the poor, and a dispensary, to which it is intended to add an infirmary. A literary and scientific institution is established here, supported by members of the highest respectability; and there is a mechanics’ institute. A journal, called ‘The Cinque Ports’ Chronicle,’ conducted with acknowledged talent, and enjoying a circulation of considerable extent, is published in Hastings every Saturday morning. A market for butchers’ meat is held under the new town-hall on Wednesdays and Fridays; a new market, for all kinds of provisions, is daily open in George-street; and a butchers’ market, at the same place, on Wednesdays and Saturdays: fish is obtained in abundance daily; and a corn market is held every Saturday, at the ‘Swan’ and ‘Anchor’ inns. The fairs are on Tuesday in Whitsun week, the 26th July and 23rd November; that in July, termed ‘Rock fair,’ is the principal, and is for pedlery, toys, &c. The population of the cinque port of Hastings, amounted, according to the returns at the census of 1831, to 10,097 inhabitants.

POST OFFICE, 4 George-street, HASTINGS, John Woods, Post Master. – Letters from LONDON arrive every morning at twenty minutes before five, and are despatched every night at eight minutes before ten. – Letters from DOVER, &c. arrive every day at half-past twelve, and are despatched every afternoon at a quarter before two. – A penny post to ST. LEONARDS every morning at a quarter before five & afternoon at half-past 1.


IS a beautiful and fashionable watering place, in the borough of Hastings and partaking of its municipal privileges, one mile west of that town – seated in a most healthful and delightful situation, having a southern aspect, and well sheltered from the keen winds of the north. The erection of this elegant little place was commenced in 1828, by the late Mr. J. Burton, of London, an architect of distinguished ability, under whose plans and management the buildings were completed; and it is but just to state, that, for taste, convenience, and beauty of architecture, they are not surpassed by any marine residence of similar size in the kingdom. From the esplanade (which extends to Hastings,) the views are expansive and picturesque – embracing, towards the east, the castle and cliffs of Hastings; to the west, Bexhill, Pevensey, Beachy head and the South Downs; and inland the delightful and interesting vale of St. Leonards. There are numerous handsomely furnished lodging-houses, in charming situations; five superior hotels; together with baths, libraries, reading rooms, public gardens and archery grounds – the entire presenting attractions of no common order. A new church has been completed, for the increasing accommodation of the increasing population, which now exceeds 2,000.

POST OFFICE, Parade, Charles Haywood Southall, Post Master. – Letters from LONDON and all parts arrive every morning at five, and are despatched every night at half-past nine.
