Hi Deisel,

Have you tried the census, when was Samuel born, what county is Stretton en la Field in? sorry so many questions but I need tjis info to look, Another suggestion is the land registry if they owned the property.

Hi it was in northwest leicestershire and to the other question i am not sure if it was in the doomday book .
Hi Diesel,

Did you have a look at the link. In 2001 census it had a population of 36, so if it was that small then, I doubt if it was much bigger when your Gt.Gt. Grandfather was there.
So I think that will quite considerably narrow your search area.
I doubt if there were many mills about in a small community of that size.
