HISTORY: Manor belonged to Michelborne family until 1656 when it was sold to Edward Lightmaker the elder, citizen and brewer of London. His will of 1658 bequeathed among other items "my iron furnace called Horsted Ffurnace, and the watermill near unto the same adjoyning, to my wife Saphirah". Saphirah was sister to Robert Leighton, Archbishop of Glasgow, who lived with her in Broadhurst Manor on his retirement from 1674 to 1684. Alterations and extensions to the house in the 1920s and 1930s were carried out by the Clark family.
