    This is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in early 18th Century Mid Sussex. Thomas's diary details the minutiae of everyday life in a small village and his many excursions further afield. As a yeoman farmer Thomas often had cause to visit my 8 x Great Grandfather, the Hurstpierpoint blacksmith; he details the various antics of his animals (and his attempts at breeding) and gives detailed accounts of financial dealings in the Parish. He and his wife seem to eat out regularly with others! If you are researching your family's history and they were living in this part of Sussex in the 18th Century then this book is well worth purchasing - the ebook being particularly useful as it can be searched for specific names - and Thomas names everyone! I cannot recommend it highly enough!

    "please give us excerpts from the diary!" The preview is interesting but I would like to read some bits of the diary so as to write a review. (I once taught at Hurstpierpoint College by the way!)
