Hi Glenpenny ....

If you haven't tried it already, go to www.old-maps.co.uk and call up Stebbing you'll be presented with section of the 1881 ordnance survey map.  If you pan the box just off centre to the north and then go for the detailed view, you should be able to see all 4 mills.

Town Mill (Corn) is down a lane just to the west of the centre of Stebbing with an unnamed Windmill (Corn) on the edge of the village to the east near to Watch House.

Bran End is just to the north of Stebbing - and there stands Bran End mill on the Stebbing brook.  Just to the west of the watermill is the other (unnamed) Windmill - also corn.

Hope I'm not teaching mother how to suck eggs, but the fact that all four mills where still there in 1881 is very interesting - must have been a very agriculturally rich area.

Aye

For some reason Thomas Jasper rings a bell (ding dong) ... I think he may have married the widow Whitehead ...

Will need to check that too :)

There is something in the Seax about the two French Stones. 

I will be back :)

MiddleEnglander - feel free to teach me to suck eggs anytime!  I got so involved looking through Seax I never thought about the old maps.

Seems to me it's more likely my ancestor was at the Town Mill and that this was indeed down Mill Lane.  I paid a visit to Stebbing a couple of years ago on a very rainy day and had a tramp around the Mill Lane Chapel graveyard but this was before I knew about the connection to a mill and we didn't go any further down the lane.  :'(

Thank you so much for your interest.  It's so useful to be able to bounce things around with someone else.

interested to see what you said.
My grandfather brought town mill stebbing in about 1932 and worked the mill with his brother until he retired (somewhere in the late 1950`s). My father then worked the mill until he too retired in 1997. He passed away in 1999 and the mill was then sold later that year. It has now been converted into a very nice house but still retains much of the original working gear including one set of "French Burr" stones.
Just for the record my great grandfather and my great great grandfather worked the mill as well! (although they did not live at the mill at that time).I think i am right in saying that the mill was owned by Henry Ruffel in my grandfathers younger days.
Hope this is of some interest to you.

Would your family be called Hynds then?  I have a couple of old magazine articles on the mill down Mill Lane if you are interested.  If you send me a personal message with your e-mail address, I'll happily forward these to you (when I get my scanner working properly) ;)

You'll need to have a couple of more posts on these boards though before the messaging system will work for you.

Cheers, Glenys

Send me a pm with your address Sandra and I'll send it to you.
No photograph of the stones though I'm afraid.
