Aldrington Always sparsely populated, the parish was deserted from the mid 18th century to the early 19th. The 1841 census shows only one resident (Michael Maynard, gate keeper); the population doubled by 1851 (James Gatten, toll collector, and his wife Mary). Revitalisation began when the grid of streets between Brunswick Town and the boundary with Portslade was mostly laid out in the early 1880s, the earliest planning application being dated 18 December 1880. Aldrington was absorbed into Hove on 26 September 1893.
      Land south of the LB&SCR railway line and on the eastern boundary of the parish measuring 24 acres, 3 roods, 30 poles was sold by the Sackville estate on 8 August 1882 to George Gallard, Joseph Harris Stretton, Evan Vaughan and William John Williams, who partitioned the land on 9 August 1882. Gallard sold his share to Vaughan on 11 August 1882. Vaughan took out several mortgages but absconded in July 1885. The mortgagees conveyed one of the pieces to Rev George William Kendall on 6 February 1893 for £1,000. Kendal Road, Lennox Road, Payne Avenue, Ruskin Road and Stoneham Road were built on the land.
