The Michell family of Stammerham in Horsham held land in Itchingfield from the late 14th to the 17th century. Roger Michell conveyed a field there to William Marlott in 1395. A house and land in the parish were settled in 1439 on John Michell the elder and John Michell the younger. Tenements called Benetts or Forleward (later Valewood farm) passed in 1507 to Richard, John, and Henry Michell, and between 1525 and 1546 to Avery Michell. Avery died in 1558 leaving the estate to the daughter of John Michell of Stammerham.
