Damant Castell of Occold in about 1822
« on: Wednesday 16 August 17 20:32 BST (UK) »
Hi Rooters,

I'm looking for any info on a miller called Damant Castell.  He was associated with one of the mills in the village and I understand he may have moved to Brooke in Norfolk later.

Any nuggets would be good but family (wife's maiden name) and even correct spelling of his name would help!!!

Cheers,
Windy Miller

Hi Mabel,

Thanks for this.  It means Damant was 23 when he had the mill in Occold.

One branch of the Rackham family were millers in Suffolk, most notably at Wickham Market.  May there is a connection there?
