This mill was owned by Arba Brooke in 1901. His uncle Robert was my great-great-great-grandfather. I only discovered this recently, thanks to the excellent book Booth's History of Gildersome(although my granny always used to say she had a relative who was a millowner). If anyone knows more about Arba, or about the mill when he owned it, I'd be delighted to hear from them.

Apparently there was a farm that was either nearby or previously occupied the mill site. It was called Suffield Farm. When the builders built the Suffield estate on the old site a local lady who knew of the farm suggested they call it Suffield.
