Church and Parish History

At St Mary's we have a wonderful collection of Archives covering the Church, the Parish, Ratton Manor and some of the  local Families who have lived here. Our original Parish Registers dating from 1560 are deposited at the County Record  Office, The Keep, at Falmer. We do have transcriptions of most of these. Every year in July there is a large Archives Exhibition on the day of the Summer Fair when the archives are displayed, filling the church. If you have any enquiries about parish or family history or have any information to add to our archives, please contact our Archivist Rosalind Hodge via the Church Office or email:
