Isfield is a small village and civil parish in the Wealden District of East Sussex in England, located north-north-west of Lewes.HistoryThe village of Isfield originally grew adjacent to the ford where the London to Lewes Way Roman road crossed the river River Ouse. The village had an active history through the Saxon, Norman eras, when a Norman castle motte was built on the river bank near the church to guard the crossing. Local legend, as recalled by William Wratten, had it that King Harold spent the night before the Battle of Hastings in the village, at his demesne located where Isfield Place now stands.Isfield became the home of John Shurley (died 1527). Isfield Place is a 17th-century manor house, incorporating part of the original 16th-century mansion of the Shurley family. Its design was influenced by Laughton Place, following the marriage of Thomas Shurley, John's grandson, with Anne Pelham, daughter of Sir Nicholas Pelham of Laughton.The herbalist Nicholas Culpeper spent his childhood in the village at the home of his grandfather, Rev. William Attersole - Minister at St. Margaret's.
