Administrative history:
On 20 September 1614 Robert Iden conveyed to the Rev John Frewen and others a messuage and land (2a) in Northiam in trust to apply the rents and profits in maintaining the premises in repair, and to pay the residue to a schoolmaster to teach the children of that parish.
The Rev George Barnsley in his will of 7 September 1723 (proved in PCC on 12 February 1725) bequeathed £500 for the educating of poor children in the practice of the Christian religion and on 9 May 1727 his executors purchased for £100 a rent charge of £3 10s which issued out of a moiety of the lands called the New Innings (114a) in Pevensey Marsh, in trust to pay for the education of poor children in Northiam (see PAR 431/1/7, 11).
On 10 August 1727 a deed of settlement was drawn up, which endowed the free school with the proceeds of a rent charge of £3 from Thomas [II] Frewen of Brickwall, the Iden Charity and the Barnsley Charity (PAR 431/25/1/12). By 1860 the school buildings were in a state of disrepair and many of the local children attended the recently established National School (see VCH 2, 437, and Reports of the Commissioners inquire concerning charities and education of the poor in England and Wales (1815-1839) 127-128).
