Documentary Evidence


In 1302 Adam Baret "entered into an agreement with Isabel de Somerville, the lady of half the barony of Merlay, concerning the multure of the mill of Long Benton... It was agreed that Isabel should remit to Adam his multure at Long Benton mill to the 10th measure...". There is no other published reference to the mill, and no clue to its type or location. Perhaps it was a watermill somewhere on the east bank of the Ouse Burn.
