Hawkhurst is infamous for its 'Hawkhurst Gang', ruthless smugglers who terrorised the south coast area (as far as Poole in the west & Gravesend to the north) for 20 years in the early 18th century. Their demise was finally brought about at the 'Battle of Goudhurst' in 1747. At the peak of their activities they were believed to be as many as 500 strong. Another notable resident born in Hawkhurst was William Rootes, he initially set up a cycle business before producing motor cars.

Edward Lloyd, founder of the bank that eventually became the National Westminster built the house as a family home in 1855, it remained in the family until just after the First World War, during which it was used as military hospital. It was then sold and was for many years a private girls school.
