Horatio Nelson's mother Catherine Suckling was born in the former rectory on 9 May 1725. She was always with him, despite her death when he was just nine years old - "The thought of former days brings all my mother to my heart, which shows itself in my eyes," he later recorded. The house is near the main road, close to the church, which has a stained glass window commemorating the Battle of Trafalgar.
