Query from Sheila Burgess
Are there any photos anywhere of the inside of Stanmer Manor? I have lived near Stanmer all my life but have never been in the manor, and would love to be able to see what it was like.

There are b/w photos in a Country Life magazine. I do not know the date but think it may have been in the 1920’s. East Sussex Record office at Lewes may know more.

Try Here :- http://scm.pastfinders.org/scm_04_stanmer.htm I found it and put it up tonight.  It’s an illustrated article from the Sussex County Magazine for 1930.  The images are large so I have thumbnailed them on the main page.  The House was open last year for the Heritage open days. Maybe the powers that be could be persuaded to repeat it for next year.

  • Take a look at the official website… stanmerhouse.co.uk full of inside shots of the house and updated all the time.

  • My father’s family lived in Cuckfield before moving to London in the late 1800s, but we’re from this area before that. Could the name Stammer be a corrupted form of Stanmer? Any thoughts?
