Brief history of Rotherfield Park
The family of James Scott bought Rotherfield Park in 1808, the only time the house has been sold in its long history. The architect, Joseph Parkinson, was commissioned to rebuild the house incorporating the new theories of romanticism as dictated by Sir Uvedale Price and Richard Payne Knight. Mansion, park, village, and distant landscape were all transformed over a period of half a century.
