This lovely building, once a mill still stands, and is now a rather lovely and authentic public house in the rural Surrey village of Elstead.
I have an ancestor, Sarah Ellis (nee Hall), born in London who moved to Elstead and is recorded on the 1851 Census as a lace worker. Sarah and her husband John migrated from Elstead to Geelong Victoria Australia as free settlers.
Last September, I attended the funeral of my late Mum’s first Cousin. His son held the wake (family gathering) at Elstead Mill public house and was completely unaware of the family connection. I discreetly took a few pictures.
