The Power and the Poverty


This book is about the people of a Sussex village, Hurstpierpoint, between 1790 and 1850. National events affected them, as everyone: the French wars; industrial unrest; political agitation and the railways.

Life’s fortunes varied, but one thing was constant, a person’s place in society – from squire to day labourer: from the power to the poverty.
