Northiam Windmills

12th August 2012

John Ranger:

I am descended from James RANGER c1697 - 1772. I have his will in which he bequeaths his house in 2 parts to his sons, Thomas and Jasper. He describes the house as by the "Kings Highway from Northiam Windmill to Ewhurst to the Little House". He then bequeaths some land to his daughter "streight (sic) down from the lane south to Mill Down Hedge" He also mentions "The Mill Down House". Can anyone pin point where this road/lane might be? I note that Northiam appears to have had 3 windmills, one burnt down and 2 demolished.
Thank You. John Ranger
