Vickrey Mill

Page history last edited by PBworks 15 years, 5 months ago

Upstream: Old Coltrane Mill Road Bridge

 

96.5 Vickrey Mill

 

Downstream: Walker Mill Road Bridge

 

Martin (1993) says that Regulator Marmaduke Vickrey built a mill on the left bank at the mouth of _ Creek on land granted to him by Lord Granville on 2-22-1759. The Randolph Historical Map gives the date 1757 for this mill. However, there does not appear to be a natural fall in the river directly at the mouth of the creek and Saville (1924) shows what he calls a fish dam a bit further down at mile 96.5, which I imagine is the location of the Vickrey Mill dam. In any case, the entire area is now buried below Randleman Lake and therefore difficult to investigate.

 

Areas for Research

  • Are there deeds that would help identify this location?
