© National Portrait Gallery

Charles Cecil Cope Jenkinson, who became the 3rd Earl of Liverpool in 1828, was born on 29th May 1784 to the first Earl of Liverpool, his mother being a daughter of Sir Cecil Bisshopp, Bart., of Parham, Sussex. He was a Page of Honour to George III., served in the Royal Navy 1794-7 and fought in several naval actions, including Lord Howe's victory of June 1st, 1794. He was afterwards attached to the Embassy at Vienna, and, later, fought at Austerlitz as a volunteer in the Austrian army. He held various posts as an Under Secretary of State in the Ministry of his brother, who was Prime Minister for 15 years. He was Lord Steward of the Household to Queen Victoria from 1841 to 1846, and died at Buxted on Oct. 3rd, 1851. In the 1830s Charles Cecil Cope Jenkinson had resided at Buxted Place and was responsible for the controversial move of Buxted Village to its current location. He lived for a time at Felbridge Place in East Grinstead, having acquired that property in 1810 by marriage with Julia, the only daughter of Sir George Augustus William Shuckburgh-Evelyn, a baronet distinguished for his scientific researches. Charles Cecil Cope Jenkinson was returned as Member of Parliament for East Grinstead in 1818, 1820 and 1826.

c 1750HistoryHorsfield's Sussex
 Buxted Place, the seat of the Earl of Liverpool, is a noble mansion built of brick, and displaying the utmost simplicity of architecture. It was begun about the middle of last century [i.e. c 1750], by Edward Medley, Esq., Barrister at Law, and was finished by his nephew, George Medley, Esq., who, as a wine merchant in Portugal, amassed an immense property; a part of which, however, he lost in the ravges occasioned by the memorable earthquake in Lisbon, in the year 1755.
Settling at Buxted, he for many parliaments represented the borough of Seaford, and afterwards East Grinstead.

c 1836HistoryBuxted The Beautiful
 When the Earl of Liverpool was at Buxted Place he wished to remove the village elsewhere, so as to enlarge the park and render it more secluded. He accordingly offered to build new houses for the inhabitants anywhere in the parish they wished, if they would move, but the people refused, and stayed where they were. Lord Liverpool then declined to do any repairs to the property, and in course of time the houses fell into decay and became uninhabitable. The tenants had to move then, and the remains of the old village were swept away entirely. This was about 1836. Tradition has it that the Earl wished to remove the church as well, but public opinion was too strong for that vandalism, and the church [St Margaret's] stands to-day in its splendid isolation.
