Company info

The American poet, novelist and critic Conrad Aiken, Pulitzer Prize winner, bought Jeake’s House in 1924 and the Men’s Club in 1928. He was visited here by many famous contemporaries including T.S. Eliot, E.F.Benson (then the occupant of Lamb House just round the corner), the artist Paul Nash (who is remembered by a plaque at the top of East Street), Malcolm Lowry, and Radclyffe Hall (then also living in Rye and creating great scandals). Aiken’s first floor study in what he referred to as his “deeply cherished home” overlooked “A mile of green Romney Marsh and the blue edge of the channel.” Aiken also wrote about Jeake’s “By how many noble or beautiful or delightful spirits had it been lighted and blessed! Lighted by love, lighted by laughter, the kind of light that never goes out.” Today the combined premises, together with neighbouring Elders House, have become the property of Jenny Hadfield who undertook the mammoth task of restoring derelict parts of the buildings. Also born in Rye was Jenny Hadfield’s father John Burke, novelist, historian, and winner of an Atlantic Award for Literature from the Rockefeller Foundation.
