Halnaker  Sussex


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Halnaker like this:

HALNAKER, a tything in Boxgrove parish, Sussex; 4 miles NE of Chichester. It has a post office under Chichester. Pop., 233. The manor was given by Henry I. to Robert de Haye; passed to the St. Johns, the Poynings, the Delawarrs, the Morleys, and others; and now belongs to the Duke of Richmond, and is attached to Goodwood. A mansion on it dated from the time of the Conquest; was rebuilt by Sir Thomas West, Lord Delawarr; had a gateway, flanked with small octagonal turrets, leading into a square court; and is now little more than a mass of ruined walls.
