by
Terry and Mary Miller

© T. E. & M. Miller 2011

Mary Miller is a retired scientific secretary with a long term interest in archaeology and local history. She has published a number of Cambridgeshire and Norfolk village chronicals based on 18th and 19th century newspapers.

Terry Miller has retired from a career as a plant cytogeneticist. As an amateur archaeologist with the Great Chesterford Archaeology Group he was responsible for the excavation of the RomanoBritish temple precinct at Great Chesterford, Essex.

As only limited details of a few members of the Southwell family of Woodrising, Norfolk, England, have been published. This study attempts to redress this situation by bringing together details of the wider family and its rise and fall during the 16th and 17th centuries. Although the family base was in the small Mid-Norfolk village ofWoodrising it played a significant role in both the adrninistartion and society of Tudor England
