East Sussex is a county in South East England. It is bordered by the counties of Kent to the north and east, Surrey to the north west and West Sussex to the west, and to the south by the English Channel.

Governance

the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia

Sussex is traditionally divided into six sub-divisions known as rapes. From the 12th century the three eastern rapes and the three western rapes each had separate quarter sessions, with the county town for the three eastern rapes being Lewes. This situation was formalised by Parliament in 1865, when the rapes were abolished and the two parts, East Sussex and West Sussex, were made into administrative counties, each with distinct county councils first elected in 1889 under the Local Government Act 1888. In East Sussex there were also three self-administered county boroughs: Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings.

In 1974 East Sussex was made a ceremonial county, and the three county boroughs became districts within the county. At the same time the western boundary was altered, so that the Mid Sussex region (including Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath) was transferred to the county of West Sussex.

East Sussex is divided into five local government districts. Three are large, rural, districts (from west to east):

These rural districts are further subdivided into civil parishes.

Eastbourne District and Hastings District are mainly urban areas. In 1997, Brighton and Hove became a self-administered unitary authority; it was granted city status in 2000, whilst remaining part of the ceremonial county of East Sussex.

end of Wikipedia contribution

Briefly, East Sussex became an administrative county in 1888 and a ceremonial county in 1974. In the period between 1865 and 1974 Sussex was the ceremonial county for both East and West Sussex.
