The Award also included Sutton_towermill that was inside the same parish.

Bryant's map of Norfolk, 1826 shows two mills as 'Sutton Mills,' the other being just south of the road opposite the tower mill.
This might, of course, have been the 1788 mill then derelict but omitted from Faden's map of 1797.
Bygrave's advertisements of 1817 and 1824 give the address as 'Sutton Mills'.
