Bunger Hill

From Historical Hastings

This hill is located between Laton Road and Elphinstone Avenue on Elphinstone Road, and would appear to be part of an earlier estate known by the same name. A notice of property being sold at auction in 1889 mentions that the upper entrances to both the Broomgrove Estate and Bunger Hill estates were near to the Fortune of War public house and adjacent to three cottages referred to as 'Summer Hill Cottages'[1].

Cousins refers to Bunger Hill House being the residence of an Edward Lintott who died on the 1st of December, 1761 - Lintott being the maiden name of the mother of Admiral Sir Cloudesley-Shovell[2].
