  Events

• Manorial Estate, 1332-1349, Harting Manor, Harting, Petersfield, West Sussex, GU31, GB. 4 Between 1156 and 1166 William, Earl of Arundel, gave to Henry Husee 2 knights' fees which were evidently in Harting, and were subsequently held of the honor of Arundel. On the death of Hugh d'Aubigny, last Earl of Arundel of his line, in 1243 the overlordship of Harting passed to his eldest sister Maud and her husband Robert de Tateshall, of whose son Robert the manor was held in 1253. His grandson Robert in 1303 inherited 3 knights' fees in Harting and Chithurst held by Henry Husee, and in 1341 these fees were held of Alice, widow of William de Bernake, who was daughter of the eldest of Robert's coheiresses. By 1409, however, Harting manor was said to be held of the Earl of Arundel as of his manor of Walderton, and it was still held of that manor in 1555.

Henry Husee, first lord of Harting, or his son Henry, had remission of Danegeld in Sussex in 1154. The younger Henry founded a leper hospital at Harting and also (before 1169) the Abbey of Durford. He is said to have died about 1174 in the Holy Land. A third Henry Husee, in 1190-6, confirmed gifts to Durford Abbey made by his father, and in 1194 he made an agreement with the Abbot of Séez about the advowson of the church of Harting. Land in Sussex given to him by the king was taken away in 1205, but in 1208 the patronage of the Abbey of Durford was restored to him, as well as the land of his brother Hubert. He died about 1213, when his son Henry paid 100 marks for his patrimony in Wiltshire. This Henry was in arms against the king in 1216 but returned to his allegiance in 1217, and died before 1 April 1235. He was succeeded by a son Matthew, called his heir, though there had been an elder son Henry who died before his father, leaving a daughter Maud, who in 1239 unsuccessfully sued Matthew for 3 knights' fees in Harting. Matthew was in possession in 1242, and in June 1252 he obtained a grant of free warren in his manor of Harting. He died early in 1253, and his young son Henry succeeded. At the instance of Prince Edward the king granted licence to Henry Husee in 1266 to build a crenellated house at Harting, inclosing it with a dyke and a wall of stone. In 1268 Maud, mentioned above, with her husband William Paynel confirmed Harting manor to Henry. He obtained in 1271 a grant of a weekly market on Wednesday at Harting and a yearly fair there on the eve, day, and morrow of SS. Simon and Jude, and a grant of free warren there. He died in 1290, when Henry his son, afterwards Lord Husee, succeeded. He was visited at Harting in September 1302 by Edward I. He died in 1332, when seisin of his land was given to his son Henry, with whose consent a third of the manor of Harting was assigned as part of the dower of Isabel, widow of Sir Henry. A settlement of the manor was made in 1347 upon Sir Henry for life, with remainder to his younger son Henry and his wife Elizabeth daughter of John de Bohun of Midhurst and their issue, Mark the eldest son of Sir Henry having died in 1346, leaving an infant son Henry. Sir Henry Husee died in 1349 and Harting manor passed under the settlement to his son Henry, a third of the manor being assigned as dower to Katherine widow of Sir Henry, and a very detailed account exists of her share. She had all the chambers near and over the west door and a garden near these rooms to the west, all the chambers near and over the east gate, except the prison, the gates being held in common, and the right to use Henry's bakery and kitchen until he should build another for her near the west gate. Katherine was also to enjoy parts of several gardens, a third of two dovecotes, the part of the park to the north of the town called Nether Park, a third of the woods and warrens and of the yearly fairs. The well called Typut was held in common.

Henry's land was extended for debt in 1370, and the inquisition then taken gives a detailed account of his part of the manor. The land was divided into that above the down and that below the down. Sir Henry Husee died in 1383, and the manor passed to his son Henry, then aged 22. Ankaretta widow of Sir Henry married as a second husband Sir Andrew Hake, and she had a third of the manor as dower. On her death in 1389 this passed to Sir Henry Husee. Just before her death Sir Andrew and Ankaretta were sued by Henry son of Mark Husee, mentioned above, for a third of the manor, and in 1393 this Henry sued Sir Henry Husee for the same. He claimed it under the grant made by William and Maud Paynel to Henry Husee in 1268. He was not successful in his claim to the manor, but he seems to have obtained from Henry an annuity of 40 marks from Harting in perpetuity. On the death of Sir Henry Husee in 1409 Harting manor was delivered to his widow Margaret, who had held it jointly with him. She complained in 1412 that her son Sir Henry Husee came to Harting manor when she was in the parish church at High Mass on the feast of St. Lawrence, and stole a chest of muniments. She married before 1412 Richard Biterley, with whom she was at that date holding a third of Harting manor and an annuity from the other two-thirds. Sir Henry in 1430 obtained a confirmation of the grant of free warren made to Matthew Husee his ancestor. He settled Harting in 1434 upon Constance his wife for life, with remainder in tail male to his sons Henry and Nicholas. He died on 30 January 1449'9650, when it was said that he held no land in Sussex, as he had granted all his estate to trustees in 1434. His son and successor Sir Henry, in May 1451, with the trustees, granted the demesne land of the manor for Sir Henry's life to John Husee, in satisfaction of the annuity of 40 marks from the manor. In 1453 he settled the manor upon himself in fee tail with remainder to his brother Nicholas in tail. He again conveyed the manor to trustees in July 1460 and died without issue soon after. His trustees leased the manor in August 1464 to John, Earl of Worcester, for his life. The earl shortly after assigned the lease to Nicholas Husee, reserving to himself the two parks, Up Park and Down Park, and the site of the manor when he should choose to visit it; during these visits, Nicholas Husee was to have two rooms in the manor-house. Nicholas Husee obtained a pardon in 1467 for all debts to the king, incurred while he served the offices of buyer, receiver, and keeper of victuals and equipment provided for the defence of Calais, the lieutenancy of the castle of Guynes, and sheriff of Surrey and Sussex. Before July of the following year he had been outlawed for treason and his lands forfeited, but he evidently again obtained pardon, for on his death in 1472 he held the manor of Harting. His heirs were his daughters Constance aged 12, and Catherine aged 10. Constance married firstly Henry Lovell and afterwards Sir Roger Lewkenor, and Catherine married Reynold Bray.

In 1478 Thomas Husee sued Sir Roger Lewkenor, Thomas Hoo, and Thomas Bassett for the manor of Harting. Thomas claimed it as great-grandson of the Henry son of Mark Husee, the claimant in 1389, and recovered the manor against Sir Roger Lewkenor, but immediately took part in a conveyance of the manor to trustees to the use of the coheirs of Nicholas Husee, and the manor was divided between them. Reynold Bray and Catherine had land held by certain tenants in East Harting, land in Rogate, Wenham, and Chalecroft in Harting with 15s. 2½d. from the Up Park, and the hamlet of West Harting, except Bakersholt, Ladyholt, and Mereland. The rest of the manor was assigned to Henry Lovell and Constance, the hundred of Dumpford, the wood called Harting Combe and the fair and advowson being held jointly. From this time the manor became divided into West, East, and South Harting.

By Henry Lovell Constance had two daughters, Elizabeth and Agnes. Agnes married John Empson, and Elizabeth married firstly Sir Edward Bray, and afterwards, before 9 February 1509, Sir Anthony Windsor, brother of Andrew, Lord Windsor, by whom she had two children Henry and Constance.

Catherine and Reynold Bray had no children, but Reynold appears to have acquired some title to the manor of West Harting and land in Harting, in his own right. This he left by will to his nephew Edmund Bray in tail male, with contingent remainder to his niece Margery wife of William, Lord Sandes, in fee tail.
