Upton Windmill

Upton Windmill

An engraving about 1826 shows the Windmill and Westmont House in Queen’s-road, Ryde, the house built approximately 1820, the home of Lind family.  The Windmill was built 1809-10 and taken down 1838, and said to have been rebuilt at Upton.

The map from a sale catalogue for Aldermoor Farm, to be auctioned by Messrs Wallis, Riddett & Co. on Tuesday Sept the 3rd 1929.  The Windmill is shown on the map.

Recently transcribed and photographed by the RSHG transcribing team, was the memorial stone in Holy Cross Churchyard, Binstead, which stated: James Butler, late of the Windmill near Ryde.  Read more about James Butler and family, including documents, here.
