My mothers great-great grandfather was miller in Horsted
Keynes for several years until his death in 1855. He is recorded in the 1851
census as being a farmer/miller of 160 acres (presumably the land adjacent
to the mill), employing a miller, a waggoner, 5 labourers and a boy. He was
born in Ardingly in 1796. His wife was Elizabeth, nee Isted, and she appears
to have continued to run the mill for several years after his death, being
still there in the 1861 census with 4 recorded helpers/servants as well as
one of her sons, Arthur.
