Sir Page Dick built Port Hall in the early years of the 19th Century, and for many years stood a long way from the town remote from other houses. It was later occupied by Sir Charles Hockaday Dick, Curator of Brighton Museum. It gave its name to the windmill, which at one time stood behind it, and to the neighbouring roads. There is no reliable evidence to show how the house acquired its name.
