The manor, rectory and island of Hayling were once part of the settled estates of the Dukes of Norfolk. They were vested in William Padwick the Younger by Act of Parliament in 1825.
William Padwick the Younger of Cosham House in the county of Southampton married Miss Grace Taylor of Greenwich in the county of Kent, one of the daughters of the late William Taylor of Greenwich and his wife, Isabella, in 1814.
Their surviving child, their youngest daughter, Rosetta Frances Padwick of the Manor House, Hayling Island, born 2 February 1834, married the Reverend C.H. Clarke, vicar of Hayling 27 January 1899. She died on 2 December 1915.
On 16 April 1917 Mr Clarke married Eleanor Louise Turner, one of the children of Charles Turner, farmer of Hayling Island and Elizabeth Sarah, his wife. There were no children of the marriage. The estate subsequently devolved upon the descendants of Mrs Eleanor Clarke, the Wiltshire family.
