The same harsh taxation which hampered English newspapers generally also limited the production of Sussex newspapers until the mid-nineteenth century.
The abolition of these taxes between 18 together with a steady growth of literacy, improvements in printing technology, and the expansion of the franchise between the Reform Act of 18 created conditions for the growth of provincial newspapers.
