[An Acct. of Mr Goring's Title to the Manor of Balneth] 2


Property, 1640-1651, Balneath Manor, Chailey, Lewes, East Sussex, BN8 4AP, GB. 2 3 Balneath (or Balneth) formed part of the possessions of St. Pancras Priory at Lewes until the Dissolution. It was perhaps identical with the land which William de Warenne granted to the priory about 1095, being his demesne land 'from Beuehorne (Bevern) Bridge to Cheagele (Chailey) from the east road to the road beside the Bridge of Hamwde', which seems roughly to correspond with its present situation. The tenants of this manor had to carry 600 cartloads of wood yearly to the priory from Homewoodand Balneath Wood.

After the Dissolution Balneath, with the other possessions of the priory, was granted first to Thomas Cromwell in 1538, and later, in 1541,to Anne of Cleves for her life. The reversion of the manor was granted in 1552 to Sir William Goring, who died in 1554. His son Sir Henry obtained possession of it, and Balneath remained in the Goring family without a break until the end of the 19th century, being purchased from them about 1900 by Sir William Grantham, K.C., from whom it descended to his son William Wilson Grantham, esq., V.D., K.C., J.P.

George married Katherine Chesney, daughter of Sir Richard Chesney and Martha St. John, on 16 Aug 1601 in St. Peter-the-Great's Church [pre-1852: within Chichester Cathedral], West Street, Chichester, West Sussex, PO19 1PX, GB.1 2 (Katherine Chesney was born after 1579.)


Marriage Licence, 29 Jul 1601, Chichester, West Sussex, PO19, GB.
