John 'Mad Jack' Fuller



1757
 
In 1757 John Fuller (also known as Mad Jack), was born into one of the iron-founding families of Brightling , who owned the mansion adjoining the Church. The Family became famous for its iron furnace at Heathfield which produced guns and cannons for the navy, and the forge at Burwash Weald which produced a wide range of implements. Mad Jack was one of the great English Eccentrics, a famous politician and patron of science and the arts, who enjoyed building follies.
