George Lever born 1745 Harting

James Lever born 1747/1748 Harting

Edward was Surveyor of Highways 1745 and 1749; overseer poor 1751, church warden 1752, an overseer again 1772 until death 25/10/1775. 13/5/1757 "paid Mr Lever for ringing bell 2s"

Edward appears in the 1774 poll book.

There are several records of property transactions in West Sussex Records Office. Edward is variously described as a yeoman, a malster, victualler, innkeeper (Buck Inn)and also a grocer. (documents 1751, 1761, 1763 describe him as innholder, document 1766 late victualler now malster, Sun insurance document 1766 as malster and grocer). Victorian History details the malt house which provided family’s living. – stone building 17th century with first floor beams raised higher than original level. He was living in what is now the rectory.

In his will 0f 1775 he leaves property and money to his widow, sons John, Joseph, James, Richard, George, Ashton and daughter Ann and Sarah

Why Edward went to Harting is still unresolved.

In Harting there was Lever’s copse – R A Lever has identified this as east of Foxcombe. Gordon in his History gives it as being the former haunt of the apple snail. (p 317) - says it was at the foot of Foredown and the snail reintroduced 1847.

ASHTON LEVER

Born: 1754 Harting

‘The choice of the name Ashton after a 90 year interval 1754 and 1843 seems unusual – in both cases he was the youngest or youngest but one of the family. Was this perhaps an stavistic attempt to connect with Sir Ashton Lever of museum fame? Curiously the name also appears in march 1816 with only the name of the mother Ann appearing in the parish register
