This house is notable for having been the original Trevor Arms in Glynde village. It had been part of an ancient tenementRented dwelling
or land called Chambers until 1721 when Mary Burdett of Arlington, widow, sold the house, separately from the land that went with the tenementRented dwelling
or land, to John Weller of Glynde, weaver. In an account book of John Trevor, then owner of the Glynde Estate, John Weller was paid 4s 10d for small beer on 10 October 1741. This suggests that Weller may have been keeping a pub, or at least brewing beer on the premises, as a supplement to his occupation as a weaver.
