Preston, a hamlet in the parish of Ellingham, Northumberland
« on: Sunday 10 March 19 14:24 GMT (UK) »
An ancestor describes herself as being from Preston Mill in the parish of Ellingham, Northumberland. Does anyone know anything about a mill in that area?

Curiousfox doesn't have any hamlet  like Preston / Preston Mill within 10 miles of Ellingham.

Which resource does this relate to?

Preston on that looks more like a country estate of some kind

There's a Preston about 1km east os Ellingham, found on Bing Maps (OS). Pretty small but Preston Mains and Preston Smithy are named. No reason why there might not be a mill thereabouts

I googled it and Preston Tower came up with a reference to Preston Mains but I can't find it now!  ::)

Maybe Preston Chathill NE67 5DH
Ashton Lancashire
Eccles Lancashire
Fletcher Lancashire
Harwood Church/Darwen
Jackson Staffordhire/Worcestershire
Jenkinson Cockerham
Marsden Hoghton Lancashire
Mercer Lancashire/Yorkshire
Pye Wyresdale

The 1900 25-inch map of the area (online) shows Preston Tower with a few buildings, one labelled Engine Shed (no railway anywhere near!) but no evidence of a mill or any significant stream to run a watermill.  I guess there may have been a windmill, or perhaps it is referring to the engine shed?

Sorry, that one didn't work.
