red mail Hudsons of Northbourne, Ash and Thanet Mills
Hi, a Zachariah Hudson was Miller at Mount Ephraim, Ash-next-Sandwich. He set up his sons at various mills in East Kent. His grandson C.J. Hudson was the founder of the large Thanet Steam Mills. There are also the descendants of successive John Hudsons who were millers at Northbourne and other villages. Does anyone know how the Northbourne family and the Ash family are related? Two daughters of the Northbourne Hudson family married Clark brothers who also became millers. It's possible George Clark may have partnered with C.J. Hudson. George Clark's greatgrandson was George Foster Clark of Custard Powder and Lemonade Powder fame. Stan.
