Hunnisetts have lived in the parish of Burwash since the beginning of the 19th century. Thomas Honeysett (1770-1842) was married there in 1796 and his son, John, by his first wife became the miller at Dudwell Mill and also owned hop farms. Two of John's half-brothers were apprenticed to him; Thomas who emigrated to Australia, and Charles who later became a fruiterer and was the innkeeper of the 'Rose & Crown'. John's son, also John, took over the running of Dudwell Mill and the farmland after his father died.
