Leland, writing between 1535 and 1542, says: "The market town of Petworth in the Weald of Sussex is right well increased since the Earls of Northumberland used little to lie there. He meant by this that the prosperity of the town had increased now that the Earls were not so much absent. "For now the men there make good cloth. In the Church of Petworth lie buried some of Percy's children.?
