BMDs for several wind & watermillers
« on: Wednesday 08 August 12 21:28 BST (UK) »
Hi all,

I'm still adding to my milling db (going through the Royal Exchange Fire Insurance books at the moment (there is so much data!!!)).

I'll trying to put BMD to these bakers cum millers that have appeared through my REFI research.  Any help would be great.  I've included mill locations and the dates they insured via REFI.

Tiffen, Daniel            Needham Mkt.  1777
Collet, Robert           Halesworth       1785
Colchester, Samuel   Needham Mkt.  1787
Colchester, Edward   Needham Mkt.  1794
Moyes, William         Saxmundham   1797

Once again, anyone needing info on a miller in the family...gives me a shout and I'll see what I've got.

Cheers

Sadly my db is mostly Suffolk millers & mills.

I might be able to dig up some thing if you give me more details (Needham is a surname? Where abouts in Lincolnshire and what sort of time frame are we talking about?).  It will still take some time as I'll have to locate outside sources.

May be a bit early for REFI

Holbeach, Ashby Puerorum, Fulletby, Bolingbroke, Hameringham, Louth & Keddington !! 1750 - 1850

Known forenames are Isaac & Abraham plus possibly Richard & Thomas.

fyi, if interested, Google Earth, put in Ashby Puerorum. Head North West and there is a white house. Just above this are the 'remains' of 2 windmills. North of AP are the probable remains of a deserted village.

Hi Sue,

Thanks for that.  Both Wilson & Worledge are names associated with mills in Suffolk and in that general area but neither from the Creetings specifically.  Hummm....very interesting indeed.

Hi Edward,

I've just check my REFI db and although I have some entries for Lincolnshire none cover the villages in question (so far I'm on Vol. 34 and have only reached 1797....still a way to go!).  I'll try to check other sources, as I said, but this will take some time.

Hi Edward,

Looked up Ashby Puerorum.  Could not see the windmill remains.  Where about are they relative to the Church?  Would be interested in pinning these 2 down.  They are not in Pete Dolmans book on Lincolnshire Windmills!
