Historical records

1523 to 1690HistoryLittle DurgatesWace's Wadhurst
Durgates comprised two farms of 233 acres and 161 acres. "Great Durgates" curiously enough went with the smaller farm; and much of it still stands we believe as Durgates Lodge. The Subsidy Roll of 1523 shows J. Luck as owner. That family held the property till 1690.
