Edward was born in or about 1561, married at Steyning, 21 Jun 1584, Elizabeth, daughter of William Farnefold of Nash in Steyning, was knighted at the accession of James I, 23 Jul 1603, and was a Sergeant at Law; he was buried at Ardingly, 9 Apr 1630, as "Sir Edward Culpeper, an ancient knight," and on 15 May 1630, administration (Lewes, B.6,58) of his estate was granted (Lady Elizabeth Culpeper having renounced) to William Culpeper, Baronet, the natural, lawful and eldest son, who is bound together with Henrv Faulconer of West Hoathly, in £2000. The Inventory amounted to £410/2s/0d. Sir Edward Culpeper was the builder of Wakehurst Place1 in 1590, and greatly enlarged his property there, and in 1613 bought of Edward Neville, Lord Bergavenny, for £1,700, all that park or enclosed ground called Strudgate Park, alias Strudgate Walk, alias Reder's Walk, now part of Worth Forest (Close Roll, 11 Jas. I, pt. 39). See also Pat. Roll 12 James I, pt. 33, No. 65, where leave is granted to Sir Edward Culpeper to purchase from Edward Neville, Lord Bergavenny and others six messuages , six cottages, two water mills, 12 gardens, 400 acres of land, 40 acres of meadow, 300 acres of pasture, 300 acres of wood, 40 acres of marsh and 500 acres of furze and heath in Worth, West Hoadley, Ardingly and Balcombe.

In the same Rolls (Pat. Roll, 2 Jas. I, pt. 20), leave was granted to Johanna Culpeper, widow, to convey two houses, 100 acres of land, 20 of meadow, 60 of pasture, 60 of wood and 100 of furze and heath in Balcombe to Sir John Morgan and James Thatcher, to he held by them to the use of Johanna Culpeper (Joane Culpeper) for her life, with remainder to the use of Sir Edward Culpeper and his heirs for ever. This looks as if Sir Edward Culpeper lost his case for immediate possession of Naylands, but only came into it after his aunt's death. In 1621, he sold it to Robert Spence, of Lincoln's Inn, gent. (Robert Spence), for £1,225. (Close Roll, 18 Jas. I, pt.)
