Tyes Place with lily pond, Staplefield

The garden to the south of Tyes Place has been landscaped to include a lily pond and this photograph shows that at least five young trees have been planted recently with supporting stakes. No doubt the stakes have long gone!

This house was owned by my ancestor, John Michell of Cuckfield, between 1492-1525.
Added by Earl de Michel Wayne Quinnell on 13 September 2013
John Michell 1492-1525 (Lords of the Manor) owned Ockenden Manor in Cuckfield, Tyes in Staplefield, and Otehall in Wivelsfield.
The Michell family can be trace far back to the 13th century in Cuckfield.
John Michell is my 14th great grandfather. The name 'Michell' can be chased as far back to Gilbert de l'Aigle, who built Michelham Priory, from whom the priory acquired its name as he also called himself Gilbert Michel.
