Flour Mills and Bakeries published by Sandra D on Thu, 17/02/2022 - 6:08
I am researching my Grandfather Francis Henry Durbin born 1883 in Nailsea. In the 1901 census he is aged 17 and listed as a Baker. So I was wondering where he may have worked. I did some research and found that George Yendole was a Baker in the area and was living at Steam Mills East End Terrace Silver Street Nailsea. I did a search in the newspapers and there was a mill located there but this reference was for its sale in 1882. So I am wondering if it was still operating in 1901. Do you have any suggestions as to how I might find out? Or does anyone know of other flour mills and bakeries that would be close by. Many Thanks for any suggestions.
Thanks Richard some more leads to follow! Great pic of the Bakery!
I don't think this Mrs Durbin was my Grandmother she and husband Michael were living in Brislington according to the census in 1901 and in Kings Hill Nailsea according to the census in 1911. There were a couple of different Durbin families living in Nailsea at the time.
