Administrative history:
The earliest recorded Frewens lived in Worcestershire in the Fifteenth and Sixteenth Centuries (Detailed family memoirs compiled by Thomas [IV] Frewen are extant (FRE/826-833), A L Frewen History of Brickwall (1909), FRE/52-55). The Sussex branch of the family was founded by the Rev John Frewen (d 1628) who came to Northiam in 1583 as rector on the presentment of his father, Richard Frewen of Ripple, Worcestershire (d 1584), who had recently purchased the advowson of the parish (DNB and M A Lower The Worthies of Sussex pp 49-52). The Rev John Frewen raised a large family there, probably living at first in the house called 'Carriers' (VCH 9 p 272), and subsequently at Church House, Northiam (I Nairn and N Pevsner The Buildings of England: Sussex p 574). He was a notable puritan, and author of theological works (FRE/592-596). His eldest son, Accepted Frewen (d 1664), also became an eminent theologian and Royalist, and was confirmed as Archbishop of York in 1660 at the Restoration of Charles II (DNB and M A Lower The Worthies of Sussex pp 49-52). The Rev John Frewen's third surviving son, John, succeeded his father as rector of Northiam and he and his descendants continued in residence at Church House (Among them, Thomas Frewen, MD, 1704-1791, see DNB). It was the fourth surviving son, Stephen (d 1679), who, on the profits of his trade as a skinner, purchased Brickwall House in 1666, together with considerable adjoining lands in Northiam and Beckley, and further consolidated the estate in 1671 by the purchase of lands in the nearby parish of Brede (FRE/521 p 166, FRE/826-833, FRE/521 pp 414-415, FRE/7021-7030). He also owned the Manor of Delmonden in Hawkhurst, Kent, drew rent from several houses in London, and in addition had recently purchased a large estate at Bonby, Lincolnshire. This estate and the Manor of Delmonden remained in the Frewen family until c1750 when they were sold off to help pay for the family debts (FRE/341, 368).
Brickwall House was erected by the White family of Northiam, probably in the Sixteenth Century (A L Frewen History of Brickwall (1909) pp 58-59, VCH 9 p 269, I Nairn and N Pevsner The Buildings of England; Sussex p 574-575, FRE/6947, 6953). It was the Frewen home for five generations until the death of Thomas [III] Frewen in 1766. He and his father had incurred considerable debts on the estate and its management accordingly had been placed in the hands of trustees (FRE/38-393). Thomas [III] Frewen was, however, heir to the Leicestershire estate of his uncle, John Turner (d 1753), so that when he to died childless in 1766, both the Sussex and the Leicestershire estates passed to his cousin, Laton Frewen of Brafferton, Yorkshire (FRE/9691). He also died childless, in 1777, whereupon his cousin, the Rev Thomas Frewen of Sapcote, Leicestershire, took up the inheritance as well as the additional surname Turner and moved to the family seat of Cold Overton Hall. After his death in 1791, his son, Colonel John Frewen Turner, continued to live there and also to lead an active public life in Leicestershire (His correspondence (FRE/1399-2151, 8998-9228) shows that he was a benefactor of the parish of Sapcote, as well as an investor in roads, canals and other schemes in Leicestershire), but in 1805 Brickwall House saw the end of a succession of absentee owners when Mary Frewen came from Leicestershire to live there. Her letters to her brother John (FRE/2152-2350) written from 1805 until her death in 1811 show a lively interest in the upkeep of the house and a humane concern for the people of Northiam.
Brickwall regained a squire in 1836 when Thomas [IV] Frewen (He dropped the surname Turner on discovering it was no longer necessary to secure the inheritance of the Leicestershire estate), son of Colonel John Frewen Turner, made his home there, while his mother Eleanor Frewen Turner remained at Cold Overton Hall until her death in 1879 (Cold Overton Hall was disposed of by the family c1904). Thomas Frewen became MP for south Leicestershire in 1835 but abandoned his political career for health reasons. He subsequently interested himself in his family history (FRE/826-833), in editing the theological works of his forebear, the Rev John Frewen (FRE/811-819), and in writing his own (FRE/798-810), as well as in consolidating the family estates, depleted as they were through the financial difficulties of the previous century. It was he who built the Frewen Mausoleum attached to Northiam church (FRE/467-471) and carried out many embellishments to Brickwall House and grounds. But he did not neglect his Leicestershire interests, and was responsible for the erection of Trinity Church, Leicester, 1836-1839 (FRE/2983-3010), and the Stanley Burrough Almshouses at Sapcote, 1849 (FRE/416, 2942).
On Thomas Frewen's death in 1870, his eldest son by his second marriage, Colonel Edward Frewen (1850-1919) succeeded to the Sussex and Leicestershire estates and continued in residence at Brickwall. Far more robust than his father, he was a sportsman and master of the Sussex Hunt (FRE/887-893). He enjoyed an active military career, serving the Boer War, and in the First World War (FRE/879-886). His descendants continue to own Brickwall House.

Contents:
The Frewen archive provides a representative record of the history of a landed family from the 17th century until the death of Colonel Edward Frewen in 1919. Unfortunately however, very little relating to the public life of the early Frewens has survived, and even less relating to the early Turners. This deficit is to some extent made good by an interesting selection of early accounts and memoranda (FRE/519-527), by several full series of Frewen and Turner correspondence, by the manuscripts of the Rev John Frewen and Archbishop Accepted Frewen, as well as by the important correspondence and papers of the Jeake family of Rye (For pedigree of the family, see SAC 13 pp 78-79). The early political and religious tracts (FRE/1054-1126), which may also have belonged to the Jeake family, are also of great interest.
The 13th - 16th century deeds relating to Northiam, Beckley and Brede (FRE/6895-7011) are a useful source of local data and have been listed by the Historical Manuscripts Commission (FRE/932). Regrettably, however, very few manorial records have survived. The management of both the Sussex and Leicestershire estates is well documented, and especially the 19th century management of the Sussex estate. This is a result of the assiduous care of Thomas [IV] Frewen of Brickwall (d 1870) who filed his own correspondence and papers, as well as researching into and listing the more important records of his forbears, thus helping to preserve them for posterity.

Letters from Mary Frewen of Brickwall (1753-1811)  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
Mary Frewen (1753-1811), the daughter of the Rev Thomas Frewen (1708-1791) and Esther Simpkin (1723-1803), was born at Sapcote on 28 August 1753. The letters show that she took an active role in the management of the Brickwall estate. Throughout her letters she expresses disgust and animosity against one of the estate's tenants, Charles Lord (a relative of the Rev Lord) who is described as being dirty, scandalous lazy and keeping the place in a dirty state; she also appears not to be on friendly terms with the rector. She also gives details about her illness (?cancer) and her treatment with leaches and hemlock. She died unmarried at Brickwall on 7 December 1811.

About their mother's ill health, that on Easter Monday 'a Sergeant came to Sapcote to order the men to be ready as a riot was expected of navagators [navies] at Congerstone, but they'd no call till last Monday they quelled a riot a Hinckley of the inhabitants on the dearness of provisions...the mob frighted the publicans so & used such abusive language to the cavalry they durst not bring them bit or drop. This William Lovett called & told us yesterday: they were all drawn up before the Bull (22 of them) after they'd dispersed...but William Lovett plucked up his courage & handed them a tankard. Mr Brown did bestir himself & on the mob declaring the bread was not weight, he offered that person a guinea that would bring him a loaf that was deficient & declared he'd make the baker pay the penalty. Justice Abney & Greavs were assisting the military & went into the mob declaring they'd read the riot act & then they might take the consequences, but they did not. One fellow is brought to jail taken from the Huxter's shop at the corner opposite Mrs Brown's. The cavalry made a feint of going off when they dispered the mob the first time, & pretended to go to Nuneaton where there was rioting on the Saturday, & very bad doings indeed at Coventry market the day before. When the Cavelry got as afar as the Harrow the rebels assembled again & the trumpet sounded & they came clattering back with sword in hand & rode them down at once...William Lovett said he found as great an inclination at Sapcote for the same business both Monday night & Tuesday. Tom Gent found it necessary to declare he'd set them in the stocks if they'd not disperse';

With news that 'Miss Gilbert to the surprise of every one here was married yesterday morning to a Mr Davies Giddy of Cornwall, the Borough of Bodmin he's an MP for. His father came down with him & married them, her uncle came in his chariot to be father, Frewen & co bridesmaids. The bride & groom & his father after signing all the necessary parchments set off for her aunt's at Hastings in a new landaulet. The uncle returned home to Eastbourne to be ready to receive them in the course of a few days. They are to live in her house in town if it is not found too distant for him to attend the House of Commons. I wish her happy she seems so deserving but I am mistaken if she must not give up some serious part of her religion. The father studied to show by his responses made very loud at church on Sunday morning he was not orthodox & behaved very odd about staying to the Sacrament. He has no church preferment. Frewen says she thinks the first time Miss Gilbert saw them was at a dinner at Dr Fly's. I should hardly think it, the acquaintance is of 3 years standing. Old Giddy was telling of the length of time his estate had been in the family from Harry the 7th & never incumbered with a mortgage but it is always so with Miss F, friends they are all swans', that she wishes to have the great room and staircase painted French grey and with news of other works at Brickwall

Letters from the Rev Stanley Burrough of Sapcote (1725-1807)  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
The Rev Stanley Burrough was the son of the Rev Edward Burroughs of Drigg, Cumberland and was born on 19 August 1725 (FRE/2401). He matriculated at Queen's College, Oxford on 14 June 1744 (aged 18); he was awarded a BA in 1749 and an MA in 1753 (by which time he had dropped the final 's' from his surname). Burrough was Headmaster of Rugby School from 1759 to 1778 and rector of Sapcote from 1778 until his death on 12 April 1807. On 15 May 1758 he married Mary Frewen (1718-1801), the sister of John Frewen; she was baptised on 21 December 1718 and had initially been going to marry the Rev Samuel Healy, but he had abruptly broken off the marriage in November 1757 (FRE/1664, 1369-1370). On 28 February 1807 it was reported that he suffered from 'some incurrable disease about the neck of the bladder & the rectum' (FRE/2627). He was buried at Sapcote on 17 April 1807 and she was buried there on 12 September 1801. In 1849 Thomas [IV] Frewen endowed the Stanley Burrough Almshouses at Sapcote in his memory.

Expressing his surprise that John's tenants at Sapcote are 'under the inspection of Joseph Butterworth, law bookseller, Fleet Street, London & that he has representations made to him of their circumstances and character. I could almost wish to know who were his emissaries amongst us to make observations for him & to send him the information he has from this place. He makes proposal to you for the granary, but I think no man acquainted with you and your family durst suggest to him that money or Methodism might prevail with you to consult the ease & convenience of the schismatics...When the preachers first appeared here, it was said that there was an office in London where any man might demand & receive half a Crown if he could make it appear he had gone anywhere to preach on a Sunday. I did not believe this to be true, but this letter from Joseph Butterworth [FRE/1652] makes me suspect there might be more truth in that report than I could imagine. This bookseller, Fleet Street, London, I conceive, is certainly the Secretary or Treasurer to some society set on foot to excite & maintain divisions (schisms) among us' and setting out his objections to the proposed preaching house in Sapcote;

William James Thompson (c1780- ) was John Frewen's London agent and in this capacity he dealt with the houses in Upper Thames Street, as did his cousin Richard Thompson. The family business in Leadenhall Street, London was acquired by Messrs Frampton after the death of his mother in February 1797 (FRE/2452). His father, who had died earlier leaving various debts and an estate at Fisherton Anger, Wiltshire (which was acquired by John Frewen in about 1797 in an attempt to help clear the debts), was an acquaintance of John Frewen. William, who was aged 18 at his mother's death, was employed with Messrs Frampton from 1797 until December 1806, when he entered a partnership with James Layton (an acquaintance of his late father) as tea brokers in the East India Company (FRE/1736-1737). William married Hester Timberlake the daughter of P Timberlake of 311 Oxford Street, tallow chandler. He had a brother John and sister Mary, who married Mr Acres of 2 Little Newport Street, Soho, hatter and hosier in June 1803 (FRE/2470). She gave birth to a daughter in April 1804 (FRE/2475), a son in March 1806 (FRE/2485), a son in October 1807 (FRE/2509) and a still-born child in March 1810 (FRE/2523); he was promoted to warehouse keeper at the West India Docks in July 1810 (FRE/2524).

Having acted the part of Esau the opposition thought it likely that he would do it again & by persuasive arguments they got him to nominate twenty of their party as feoffees. What the corporation did with the money no one knows and it is doubtful whether these will apply it to the purposes for which it was originally intended'

Letters from Robert Simpkin of London  [no ref. or date]

Administrative history:
Robert Simpkin, the son of one of John Frewen's tenants Robert Law Simpkin of Belgrave, Leicestershire and his wife Sarah, was born in May 1788 (FRE/2727). He was initially apprenticed to William Heyrick the town clerk of Leicester and by 1809, with John Frewen's help, he obtained a position at the Custom House, London. Robert later married and had a daughter, but afterwards he drank himself into madness and died at Dr Fox's asylum near Bristol. His sister Mary married William Collison of Leicester, woolstapler.
Robert's great grandfather Benjamin Simpkin of Cropston, Leicestershire, yeoman (c1664-1723) and his wife Grace had several children. One of their daughters, Esther (1723-1803) was a companion to Rachel the widow of the Rev John Frewen of Sapcote (1677-1735), and after Rachel's death she married their son, the Rev Thomas Frewen of Sapcote (1708-1791), the father of John Frewen Turner (FRE/830).

Letter from Robert Simpkin, Leicester to John Frewen  FRE/2695  5 Nov 1808

Contents:
Informing him that he believes that Mr Heyrick will soon dispense with his services - 'I should feel the greatest satisfaction in quitting before I was driven to it' - and asks for his help in obtaining a situation and with news (and attached newspaper cutting) about the bankruptcy of Thomas Buxton and Thomas Bentley Buxton of Messrs Bentley and Buxton, bankers, endorsed with copy of letter from John Frewen to a lady acknowledging receipt of her letter concerning Mr [William] Wilberforce - 'I assure you I cannot promote my own ruin as is threatened me by one of his committee, viz Mr Butterworth by the means of a subscription with which Mr Wilberforce is understood to be connected and of which the aforesaid Butterworth is treasurer. I have protected my parish of Sapcote from being plundered by a pauper selling one of its parishes houses for which I have been indicted twice and am to be prosecuted again this ensuing assizes. Madam, it is as foul a business as can be conceived and sanctioned by the authority of persons who have had the humanity to abolish the slave trade abroad, while at home children, in this case, have been forced from their paternal habitation', 25 May 1807
The dispute arose because John Frewen (as Lord of the Manor) pulled down a cottage at Sapcote which had been illegally built on the waste. There was an sick aged person in the cottage at the time who either died or nearly died in consequence and since that person was a Methodist, Joseph Butterworth, MP, the head of the Methodists, took up the case and instituted a criminal prosecution against John Frewen, which was tried at Leicester, where he was acquitted (FRE/1757)

Contents:
With reflections on his old position - 'Mr Heyrick never mentioned my name & seemed in a mumpish humour when the business of the office was talked upon. This is convincing proof how displeased he is at my having bettered my situation - his lofty spirit I am well persuaded is hurt at the reflection that you should not esteem a situation with him good enough for me. I know not what were his views but certain I am he had made it an object to retain me but that object being frustrated, he now affects to not notice me. Surely this conduct is dispisable and I trust I am justified in considering his behaviour to me here as altogether smooth faced civility and affection. I have only the wish that he could know the heartfelt satisfaction I feel at being loosed from him' - and with news about his studies in arithmetic, that his sister Mary has recently given birth to a son and enquiring whether John Frewen would be able to help his friend Moule to get a job in the Custom House

This, she consequently treated with the contempt it deserved & she has heard no more of him...A letter explaining the state of the public opinion & exhorting Mrs S's family to induce her to give up all acquaintance with Mr D & restore his wife's peace, was sent to Mrs Cardale of Milbrook. This letter, written with a wish of restoring peace to Mrs D, was shown in confidence to me & one or two things I suggested calculated to make some impression when Mrs S's family to exert themselves in making peace. The letter was shown to Mr D (either by Mrs S or her sister) who brought it to me & charged me with being the author. I told him, with a good deal of firmness (for me) that I knew of the letter for I scorned to prevaricate. He had Beaumont Burnaby with him to note every word I should say & when he could not make me disclose the author, he told me my conduct was base, threatened me with a trial in the King's Bench, talked of juries & fines & I know not what.. After this storm I wished to part friends, but he would not & left the house in a most ungovernable fury'
