STEYNING, a small market town in the mid parliamentary division of Sussex, England, Toe m.
The Anglo-Saxon church of Steyning (Stoeningas, Stoeningum, Staninges, Stenyges, Stenyng) mentioned in Domesday is attributed to St Cuthman, who is said to have settled here before the 9 th century, and whose shrine became a resort for pilgrims. The later prosperity of the town was due to its harbour.
Alfred bequeathed Steyning to his nephew, but it evidently reverted to the Crown, as it was granted by Edward the Confessor to the abbot and convent of Fecamp, with whom it remained until the 15th century.
By T086 Steyning was a thriving port.
Steyning returned two representatives to parliament from 1298 until it was disfranchised in 1832.
