Thomas Fairthorne of Watchfield

We know that the Fairthorne family owned Little Mill Farm and Mill at Watchfield (The site known latterly as Tuckmill) from the year c.1600. (Please see Listing N1519 in this catalogue for more details on the Fairthornes and N106 for more information on Little Mill). But the events that took place after the death of Thomas Fairthorne are worthy of note in a seperate listing and inform us of how the property came into the hands of the Radnor Estate at Coleshill.
