    George Goring (d. 1594) was the younger son of Sir William Goring of Burton(Records of the Gorings of Burton and Wiston are deposited in the West Sussex County Record Office, at Chichester.) who was gentleman of the Privy Chamber to Edward VI, and sheriff of Surrey and Sussex. George himself was Member of Parliament for Lewes in 1562-63, sheriff of Sussex and Surrey in 1572 and Justice for Lewes rape in 1587. From 1584 until his death in 1595 he was Receiver General of the Court of Wards. However, he so mismanaged the Crown's money passing through his hands that it was estimated when he died that he owned the Crown 19,777 2s. 3?d.(See W. H. Godfrey, 'The Estate of George Goring, 1595', in S.N.Q. I, pp. 21, 22; J. E. Mousley, 'The Fortunes of Some Gentry Families of Elizabethan Sussex', in Economic History Review, 2nd series, Vol. XI (1959), pp. 467-483. For an exemplification of the decree providing for the mortgage of lands to pay off this debt see Danny MS. 1126, fo. 161. For copies of correspondence and extracts concerning George Goring from Calendars of Patent Rolls, State Papers Domestic and other documents in the Public Record Office, British Museum and elsewhere, see notes compiled by Captain Francis Goring, deposited in the West Sussex County Record Office, Chichester.)
    A valuation(See W. H. Godfrey, loc. cit., pp. 21, 22.) made of his estate at this time shows the extent of the property he had accumulated. It includes the Manor of Tarring Camoyes and lands in Fletching, purchased in 1568, one eighth part of the Manors of Keymer and Houndean purchased in 1575 as well as the large estate purchased from Gregory Fiennes, 10th Baron Dacre in 1582.(See Danny MS. 1127 and 1126 fo. 150.) This consisted of the Manors of Hurstpierpoint, Westmeston, Streat, Newick, and Novington, Danny Park and Herst Park, the hundred of Buttinghill, together with lands in Hurstpierpoint, Westmeston, Streat, Newick, Chailey, Lindfield, Ardingly, West Hoathly and Slaugham, and was acquired in part exchange for the Manors of Cowley Peachey and Hayse Parkehall in Middlesex and Buckinghamshire which George Goring had acquired from his nephew, William Goring.(See Danny MS. 1126, fo. 158, and V.C.H. Middlesex, Vol. III, p. 173.)
    The Dacre estates included the house in Danny Park and this, George Goring converted and enlarged about 1593 (See above, p. xi, for a description of the house when he purchased it. For details of alterations carried out by Goring, see V.C.H. Sussex, Vol. VII, pp. 172, 173.) this date appearing together with his and his wife's initials on a ceiling of the north wing. The valuation made of his estate in 1595 mentions 'a house at Danny not fullye finished built of brick which cost as may appear 4,000'.(See W. H. Godfrey, loc. cit., pp. 21, 22.) George had previously, in about 1579 had a house built in Lewes on the site of Pelham House in St. Andrews Lane, at a cost of 2,000. (See ibid and Danny MS. 1126, fo. 119.)
    George Goring's wife was Mary, the eldest daughter and co-heir of William Everard of Albourne, and widow of Richard Bellingham of Hangleton and Newtimber. There were two sons and two daughters of the marriage.
