The Pelham Buckle became the family emblem in 1356 when it
was said to be awarded to John de Pelham for his part in the capture of King
John of France at the battle
In 1412 King Henry 1V bequeathed the village
of Crowhurst and its surrounding area
to his Chancellor Sir John Pelham and so began the history of Crowhurst Park.
The Pelham family became great land owners and influential members of various
governments. They built the Church at Crowhurst which still proudly bears the
Pelham Buckle. The original Manor House was built close by but was destroyed by
fire and rebuilt in the 17th century in its current location. The
Pelham Buckle can be seen on many prominent buildings throughout Crowhurst and
the surrounding parishes.
The Pelham family engaged various people to manage the
estate as Lord of the Manor. This befell on the Papillon family and it is
reported that on the 28th May 1895 a cricket match between Crowhurst Park and Crowhurst took place in the
park gardens Philip Oxenden Papillon, his four sons and other members of the
family made up most of the Park team.
It was one of Philip Oxendens Papillon’s predecessors who
formed Crowhurst Park Cricket Club in 1836. Early fixtures were played in the
Park gardens before moving to the current location. The Pelham family owned Crowhurst Park until 1942
The Pelham Buckle remains a central part of Crowhurst Park
Cricket Club’s emblem representing the historic strength of one of the oldest
cricket clubs in the country.
