The house now called Daffodil Cottage originally stood on part of the plot that went with the house now named Harveys, bought by John Tugwell in 1763. It was certainly lot number two of the freehold property in Glynde sold in five lots at auction by Mr Fisher at the Bear Inn, Cliffe, on Tuesday 8 May 1825, at four o’clock in the afternoon.

Lot 2 was described as a smaller dwelling, adjoining lot 1 (Harveys), and comprising kitchen, wash-house, pantry and two bedrooms: with court 25 feet wide in front, garden 43 feet by 80 as stumped out, stable and loft. The whole in the occupation of Mr Robert Tugwell. This lot is to have the right of using the well in lot 1 (paying a proportionate part of all repairs), and is to be subject to a right of way, for the occupiers of lot 3 (Step Cottages) to go to and from the said well.

The cottage was bought by John Morley for £85. John Morley died in December 1833 and left his house to Samuel Relf of the Cliffe, Lewes, shopkeeper, to be sold by public auction. Relf sold the cottage to the Glynde Estate in 1835.

By the tithe map of 1838 the cottage was occupied by William Downey, a schoolmaster who appears to have had no connection with Glynde School.

On the 1901 census the house was occupied by John Stanford, aged 45, and described as a contractor in a clay quarry. John Stanford was in charge of the clay pit to the east of Glynde Park that had been the site of Fleming Jenkins’ Telpher line, believed to be the first electrically powered industrial cableway in the world.

On his retirement John Stanford became gardener to Revd W E Dalton at Glynde Vicarage next door.
