Paper Mills


My husband was the fourth generation of the Tanner family to enter the business of R T Tanner & Co, paper merchants founded in 1878. It was therefore fascinating to find that also two families related to the Tanners, Turner and Green, owned and ran three paper mills during the 19th Century. Chafford at Fordcombe, Tunbridge Wells, Hayle Mill at Loose near Maidstone and Roughway at Plaxtol near Tonbridge and the following will link to this research.
