Johnson Batchelar 1886: The next is the Grove a Mr Orme Esq, a private Gentleman was occupied 70 years since by Mr Fox a farm bailiff to the owners Henry Peters Esq. of Betchworth Castle about 70 years since. He was unfortunate in his management; too many winners and foolish fancies - such as offering to give a load of manure for a load of couch to plough into the land, it was reported that he lost £3000 for the Old Squire and it was said that Fox died in the Croydon Workhouse, of course Mr Peters could not keep him any longer, poor old man.
Michael Budd: As a farm I think the last owner was Sanders. Before that Chart who farmed the land to the west of Brockham Lane where all the houses now are. He came to Brockham from Dungate Farm at Buckland.This is no longer a farm but the house is occupied
Alex Street: Farmer Richard Chart followed farmer
R. Barrow. Chart didn't farm very much but
endeavoured to open a gravel pit at the end of The Borough, west of Brockham Lane, It was not a success. He then gradually sold off the farm land for building, hence The Avenue, Hillside Gardens etc.
