Deborah Evershed

First published in 2006. This illustrated book was the first publication of South Grove Books based in Petworth, West Sussex.
Driving through Adversane today you might think little of it – a staggered crossroads, pub and scattering of houses, but this hamlet has a history that enfolds the author’s family history.
Using her own memories, the stories handed down in her family and careful research, Deborah has sought to capture a hundred years in and around Adversane.
Start reading though and you will see she has done more than capture the stories – she has brought them vividly alive.In the 1850s the author’s great great great grandmother – also Deborah – ran a shop in Adversane, while her great great grandfather, Charles Puttock, was both blacksmith and landlord at the Blacksmith’s Arms. Charles’ daughter, another Deborah, became a teacher and married into the Taylor family. The author’s parents, David and Ethel Evershed moved to Adversane in the late 1940s and so the author came to be born and brought up in the cottages converted from the old malthouse opposite the Blacksmith’s Arms. So the book title represents a long journey through time that comes full circle back to the place.
