Over the years many people have been fascinated by the legendary figure John "Mad Jack" Fuller, Squire of Brightling.  Much has been written about his life, his follies and his philanthropic work. It is often difficult to separate the man from the myth.

He has been commemorated in many ways including: the Mad Jack's Morris, Brook Bond collectors tea cards, and at one time the Jack Fuller's Pub. 

If Fuller sought to leave a lasting legacy after his death he would not be disappointed. More than two hundred and fifty years after his birth he is still remembered in Sussex and beyond.
