Immediate source of acquisition:

Records formerly listed as REG and UUC were deposited by Wealden District Council in Feb 1977 (A2049); as REA and RHA by Hailsham RDC in Jul 1965 (D668); and as RUC by Wealden District Council in Mar 1974 (A1696) and Feb 1977 (A2049). Information on deposit of records listed in DW from the outset is generally given at series level

Custodial history:

The records of the district councils formed under the 1894 Act which were deposited by Hailsham and Uckfield RDCs or by Wealden District Council down to about 1977 were initially organised in the Record Office in collections for each of 1894 councils (including they records they inherited from rural sanitary authorities and other predecessors). Later deposits by Wealden District Council were placed in a collection for that authority. In 2003 the collections for the 1894 councils were assimilated into the collection for Wealden District Council and assigned new references. The former references are generally given at file level, but occasionally at series level


Concordance of old and new references for records relisted in 2003 and, in a few cases, at earlier dates

Administrative / biographical background:

Wealden District Council was established in 1974 under the Local Government Act 1972. It replaced Hailsham Rural District Council and Uckfield Rural District Council. Under the East Sussex Review Order 1934, Hailsham RDC had been enlarged by absorbing Eastbourne RDC and East Hoathly and Waldron parishes from Uckfield RDC. Uckfield RDC had been enlarged by absorbing Uckfield UDC, Hartfield, Withyham and (in part) Forest Row parishes from East Grinstead RDC and Frant and Wadhurst parishes from Ticehurst RDC. All the rural and urban district councils had been established under the Local Government Act 1894, meeting first in January 1895, and had taken over the functions of the rural and urban sanitary authorities formed under the Public Health Act 1872. For a map showing the changes of boundaries, see John Godfrey, 'Local government in the 19th and 20th centuries' in K. Leslie and B. Short, An historical atlas of Sussex (Chichester: Phillimore, 1999), 126-7
