Kelly's 1908 and 1925 shows Albert Ketteringham as the miller at Wramplingham watermill (corn mill), which is where this Albert?s wife Fanny died in 1924.
Colin Cameron?s family tree shows this Albert?s father as a miller?
Wramplingham is about 8 miles west of Norwich.
?It's quite unusual to take up milling later in life as normally it's an apprenticed trade.?
John Neville, Norfolk Mills website <http://www.norfolkmills.co.uk>
Maybe an explanation of the unusual change of occupation could be that William Ketteringham?s wife?s family had a milling connection: Her father, William Littleproud (baker and shopkeeper at Attleborough) was born about 1800 in Cranworth. Surely he must have been related to (son of?) James Littleproud (b abt 1776 at Cranworth, and having children in Cranworth up to at least 1815), who was the miller at Shipdham in 1841 (as I see from http://www.norfolkmills.co.uk/Windmills/shipdham-mill-road-postmill.html).
Moved to Wramplingham in 1910.[S:1975 Letter 11c]
?Before renting the ?Mill? Grandfather was head Carpenter for Bullards Brewery when he lived in Norwich (Opie St) where the whole family was born.
With a stationery engine he built up a carpenter?s and joinery sideline with Father [Harry Albert K] also working with him. They took on a lot of work from Uncle Fred Buckingham (Mother?s brother in Law*). The joinery & carpentry was ?Well Vats+? & windows, doors etc which Uncle Fred would include in his contract.?
* Married to Edith Hipperson.
+ His business was sinking bore holes.
Rented the mill and field alongside the river from Major Bailey of Wramplingham Hall.[S:1975 Mill notes; letter from Eric K, Jan 2000]
Continued to live in Mill House after wife Fanny Annn?s death by subletting House & mill. He finally moved to address in Chapel Garden area [?] Norwich. Opposite Theatre Royal - in Lodgings until died flu epidemic.
Was conductor of the Ballards Brewery band, and his son Harry was a cornet player in the band. See photo.
