Oxted, Surrey manor

The manor of Oxted was purchased in 1597 or 1598 by Charles Hoskins, a merchant taylor of London, who was Sir Edmund Hoskins' grandfather. In his will this Charles Hoskins describes himself as "gentleman, of Oxted, in the county of Surrey." Edmund himself was born in this property, which his father, Sir Thomas Hoskins, had inherited as the eldest son from his father. The Oxted property was passed on to Charles Hoskins, Sir Edmund’s elder brother. This Charles is reported to have married Anne Hales of King’s Walden, Hertfordshire, and to have had nine children, the eldest surviving being William Hoskins. She predeceased him.


A presumed brother of Anne Hales, John Hale, later Sir John Hale, of Paulswalden, Herts, gent., appears in the family documentation at the Surrey archives, for example in 1646[14] and in 1668.[15].


It can be seen from connected documentation that Charles eldest son, William Hoskins, later became Sir William Hoskins in 1683, having been appointed Deputy Lieutenant of Surrey in 1675 . At least two of Charles sons were involved in the practice of law - "John Hoskins of the Inner Temple, gent." , "Thomas Hoskins, gent, servant to James Sherman of Clifford's Inn, gent" ,


Charles, Sir Edmund Hoskins' elder brother, built up the Oxted estate through the purchase of the Barrow Green estate in Oxted in 1650. The records of this estate and of the Hoskins family are in the Surrey History Centre archives. Late seventeenth century maps of both the Surrey and Kent lands of the Hoskins are available at the SHC archives.
