Hurstpierpoint is a village in West Sussex, England, 4mi southwest of Burgess Hill, and 1.5mi west of Hassocks railway station. Together with Sayers Common, it forms a civil parish with an area of 2029.88 ha and a population of 7,112.HistoryToponymyThe name derives from 'Hurst', the Saxon name for a wooded hill, and 'Pierpoint' after the de Pierpoint family who arrived with William the Conqueror in 1066. The settlement was mentioned in the Domesday Book. Throughout the centuries there have been several variants on the Hurstpierpoint name e.g. Herst (11th century); Herstperpunt (14th century); Perpondesherst (15th century).The village is chiefly one long street running east and west and most of the buildings in it are of the 18th century or later.ManorsThe manor of Hurstpierpoint was held before the Norman Conquest by Earl Godwin, when it was an estate assessed at 41 hides, of which 3½ hides in the Rape of Pevensey and 19 hides in the Rape of Bramber were detached. After the Conquest, the remaining 18½ hides were held in 1086 by Robert de Pierpoint of William de Warenne. There was a church and 3 mills. The overlordship descended with the rape until the division after the death of Beatrice, Countess of Arundel, in 1439, when the 10 fees late of Robert de Pierpoint passed to the Duke of Norfolk. Subsequently the overlordship of Hurstpierpoint came into the hands of the Lords Bergavenny, and the manor was said in 1602 to have been held of their manor of Ditchling.
