The email I gave you is correct, check it again in my message to you with email and other contacts.
Mw
I sent you an reply to your mail but it looks like it went elsewhere. if you did not get the mail this is the only way. To my knowledge Thomas W. married to Jemima in 1794 is the son of John and Alice W. bap 28 Nov 1748. If you can come up with a Tho W bap 1773 in this area I would be most interested.
It was suggested that on Ancestry there is a family tree for this branch of Woodroffes with Edward and Abigail of 1732 marriage on it .The bap of Edward given as 1666 ish. I don't have Ancestry so am unable to check it BUT the library versions  I have seen have a lot of suggested dates !!
best wishes for the hunt .      Sploshkin

Hi Glenmount,

Ignore my PM to you, I seem to be repeating myself.

The info I have is as follows (with source):-

Edwd Woodruff, dec'd (1732), miller @ Horringer Windmill, BStE - Will - Ref unknown

John Woodroffe, 1787, miller of 2 windmills, BStE, Insurance, REFI

John Woodroffe, 1791, miller, creditor to bankrupt, Ipswich Journal

John Woodroffe, dec'd, 1800, miller, Ipswich Journal

Mr. Woodroffe, 1805, miller, apprentice wanted, Bury & Norwich Post

Jas. Woodroffe, 1807, miller @ Horningheath Windmill, BStE, Sale of mill, Ipswich Journal (Jas. became brandy merchant in London)

Mrs. Woodroffe, dec'd, 1806, Southgate Mill, BStE, B&NP

S. Woodroffe, miller, 1806, B&NP

Widow Woodroffe, dec'd, 1818, Ipswich Journal

Jas. Woodroffe, brandy merchant, 1807, London, robbed, B&NP

Mr. Woodroffe, miller, 1810, marriage to Miss Maderson, Suffolk Chronicle

Stephen Woodroffe, miller, 1815, ????, B&NP

Stephen Woodroffe, miller, 1819, Baker wanted, B&NP

Stephen Woodroffe, miller, 1824 Southgate Windmill, BStE, Miller wanted, B&NP

Stephen Woodroffe, dec'd, miller, 1832, Southgate Windmill, BStE, B&NP, (he died in the Melton Asylum)

John Woodroffe, miller, 1884, Horningheath Mill, BStE, crime, B&NP

I hope this helps your search for Woodroffes (or Woodruffs).  Anything you might have that might fill gaps I have would be great, espically at the early end.

Cheers for now,
Wind Miller

Hi Glenmount,

Glad I could help.

Nope, I'm in the old smoke (London), but visit Suffolk on a regular basis.

Hi Windy Miller,

Thanks for the reply, we sure would like to visit Bury someday. We were talking about a reunion with Woodroffes there but limit the attendance, who knows how many are there, I am sure there are a few. I am from Charles Woodroffe son of Edward from Bury who went to Canada in 1853/54. We will have to see if this is feasible and where we could get a meeting hall and have catering.I am 5th generation here in Canada.

Thank you for your imput.

Murray
