Parsonage:The following is an extract from an Eastbourne Local History Society fact-sheet on James Peerless, the builder of All Soul's Church - 'Then in the 1880s Lady Victoria Long Wellesley financed the building of All Souls' Church with its campanile, vicarage, and church hall all to one unified by Parr and Strong of London.' She also set up a trust for the ministry. In 1959 the east wing of the vicarage was converted into a separate dwelling house, known as Wellesley House, for accommodation for a curate (see files for plan). It ceased to be used as accommodation for a curate in 1969. From 1969 until 1978 it was let out with the incumbent being the 'Landlord' (see files for agreement) In March 1978 it was agreed that the area outlined in red (see files for plan) on the enclosed drawing should be be severed to make it glebed and Wellesley House became the responsibility of the Diocese. (Source of information: Peter Wood, Church Warden, All Souls, 2008 - he has various documents and plans of the vicarage). Eastbourne H. T. : New parsonage built in 1960s, parish paid 2/3 cost. Rest paid by Diocese and Church Commissioners. (Source: David Phillips notes)
