The place name literally means "eastern spring or stream," from the Old English "east" + "wic." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The local St Mary's Church is an ancient structure, completely restored and beautified by the Earl of Winchilsea, in 1844. It contains a tomb in memory of Richard Plantagenet, son of King Richard III, and who, having fled there after the Battle of Bosworth, was protected by Sir Thomas Moyle, lord of the manor. Today the church is in ruin and is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building. The surname is descended from the tenant of the village and lands of Eastwell, held by Norman Baron Hugh de Montfort, who was recorded in the Domesday Book.

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute.
