Letter from Judith and Andrew Sayers 22nd July 2004:

 

Re plan of Hill churchyard at GRO: ‘A grave between Thomas Allen the Mariner and his parents is marked S. Woodward, and is smaller, so could be a child, (Samuel?), and another next to it is V. Allen, possibly Virtue, wife of Joseph, son of Thomas and Sarah. H. Woodward is a little way along from Joanna. The plan was made in the early 1900s we think, and is in a book giving a little history of the church, written by the vicar at the time. No dates re the names.’

 

Email from Judith Sayers 7th August 2012:

 

One theory is that Thomas and Sarah were farming the farm opposite the church at Hill, and when daughter Joanna married Henry Woodward he took over the running of the farm and the tenancy when they died. On the tithe map Henry is farming a lot of land in that area. But it does  not explain the links to Oldbury, where the son Thomas was a mariner, and owned property there.

1906 Daniel Terrett

The Stroud News & Journal article adds:

 

‘At Walk Mills ‘English timbers were hauled, cut and converted at the Mill, with power coming from a waterwheel… In the early days, the main work was concerned with water and steam power when the firm manufactured and installed water wheels with wood teeth gearing. This is a craft which has long gone, but one example is still working today at Kilcot Mill where it is used to ground corn. The firm was also well known for its installation of wind pumps and Hydrams – waterwheel pumps – and these can be seen in many parts of the county, where several are still in operation. When steam power was widely used, the firm became involved in steam engines of all types, from agricultural horse-drawn portables to large show engines. After a huge fire demolished the timber mill, the firm moved to Crow Meadow in about 1920 and has traded there until present time.’

Walk Mill later became a coal yard owned by Sid Terrett.
