Covering dates 1418-1981
Held by East Sussex Record Office
Archival history From 1953 to 1973 the parish records of Hastings All Saints, Hastings St Clements, Hastings St Mary in the Castle, St Leonards and Westham were held at Hastings Museum, which was not a Diocesan Record Office. While at the museum these records were augmented, under the same references, from other sources, chiefly the administrative records of Hastings Borough Council and of firms of solicitors who acted as vestry clerks, but also documents recovered by the museum from wartime salvage and acquired by purchase. These composite records were transferred to ESRO in 1973 and listed in PAR classes without attention being drawn to their mixed provenance.Former parish records of other parishes in greater Hastings which had passed, with the administrative functions to which they relate, to Hastings Corporation, were also transferred to ESRO in 1973 and included in the lists of the records of those parishes.The close involvement of the Corporation and its Town Clerk in the administration of the poor law, partly caused by the survival of the ancient parishes of St Andrew and St Mary in the Castle as administrative units but without parish officers, also resulted in many settlement certificates and removal orders being addressed to or issued by the Town of Hastings rather than by individual parishes. Where that is the case, on transfer to ESRO the documents were allotted to the parish of Hastings All Saints.Since evidence for what was done and for the sources of the additional material is almost entirely lacking, no documents have been removed from these fonds. But it must be remembered that they are in part artificial creations rather than the organic archives of the parishes concerned. For papers formerly PAR369/6/1, see AMS 6262.

Administrative history:
The church was built in 1828 by the Earl of Chichester to the designs of Joseph Kay, part of the cliff to the south of the castle being cut away to form the site for it and Pelham Crescent. It closed in 1970, after which it became the Hastings Temple of the Assemblies of God. It was subsequently re-opened as an theatre and arts centre.

Administrative history:
Cyril Comyn Dobson was vicar of St Mary-in-the-Castle between 1924 and 1953. He presumably purchased PAR369/7/4/1, Phillipps MS 36525, at one of the many sales of parts of Sir Thomas Phillipps's collection in the 1920s and 1930s.

Inspection and confirmation of charters (letters patent)  PAR369/7/2/1  31 Jan 1418

Former reference: PAR369/7/2/1

Administrative history:
For the history of the college of St Mary-in-the-Castle, see Victoria County History of Sussex 2 (1907), pp112-117. The common fund of the church for food and clothing was endowed with an annual rent of four ambers of salt from Rye. Vincent was dean of the college of St Mary-in-the-Castle by about 1250, but the college was in the hands of a keeper on behalf of the crown, the patron, by 1275 - see Calendar of charters... at Penshurst (1873)), 187, 194-199, 262. The presence of Robert de Basoc, lord of Sedlescombe, among the witnesses, argues for a date early in that period, and it is suggested that the inspection of 1281 is the result of the family of the grantee taking the opportunity of the vacancy to have their charter confirmed by the crown. For Prestwick, see Dawson, History of Hastings Castle (1909), p 250.

Contents:
The crown inspects a charter of Richard II, inspecting a charter of Edward III, inspecting a chancery enrolment of Edward I, which itself inspected:
