Edward Oxborrow is the only miller at Cretingham in Kelly's county directory for 1853, when Isaac Rice was a maltster (p. 345).

At an insolvency examination on 10 July 1858, Bury County Court heard that former maltster and farmer Isaac Rice went to live at Bradfield St George, as a maltster, in 1855, leaving no creditors at Cretingham (Bury and Norwich Post, 13 July 1858, page 2, column 7). Having fraudulently failed to inform the Inland Revenue of his malt-making in 1857, he had been in gaol at Bury St Edmunds for the past seven months and was apparently destined to remain there until February 1859.
