Staplecross Circuit from Aug 1815 - . Afterwards called the Sandhurst Circuit, August 1816 onwards. These were circuits taking in a large number of villages. All the Sandhurst, Bodiam & Benenden entries are listed, and also some familiar names or interesting professions from nearby. The Sandhurst Circuit was huge: the books include entries for persons resident in Battle, Beckley, Benenden, Bilsington, Bodiam, Brede, Brenchley, Brightling, Burwash, Cranbrook, Crowhurst, Dallington, East Hoathly, Etchingham, Ewhurst, Goudhurst, Hawkhurst, Hooe, Horsmonden, Hurst Green, Lamberhurst, Mayfield, Mountfield, Newenden, Northiam, Pembury, Penhurst, Robertsbridge, Salehurst, Sandhurst, Sedlescombe, Staplecross, Ticehurst, Tonbridge Wells, Wadhurst, Westerham and Westfield. The Sandhurst Circuit constitutes a community and its registers should reveal links and associations across it which might not otherwise have been obvious, so a visit to the film of the original may be worthwhile.

For Wesleyan Baptisms before August 1815 see the Rye Chapel Book of Registers.
