Brambletye House, Sussex

Historical Description

Brambletye House, a ruin 2½ miles SE of East Grinstead, in Sussex. It possesses little intrinsic interest, but has some notoriety through Horace Smith's romance. The house was built in the time of James I. by Sir Henry Compton, and belonged in 1683 to Sir James Rickards, who fled from it under a charge of treason.
