Question:
I would appreciate your help in finding the approximate location of "Lucky Lane" (could possibly be "Licking" Lane or "Locking" Lane) in Mildenhall where the 1841 census shows my ancestors, the Thomas Mortimer family, lived. If it helps to narrow down the location, the census shows Dunsford Mill (or Hill) and Mere or (Were) Farm before this entry, and Grove Farm after it.

The Mortimer Family lived at " Warren" or "Minal Warren" from 1851 - 1871. and I would appreciate knowing where this was located also.

Answer:
Minal Warren is in the north of the parish of Mildenhall, beyond Minal Woodlands, near to Ogbourne St. George. It is approached by taking the former south to north Roman road from the village. The present Warren Farm lies to the east of the road, National Grid Reference SU 214722.

Lucky Lane is not marked on large scale maps but I have spoken to a colleague who used to live in Mildenhall and she thinks that Lucky Lane is the part of the Mildenhall to Axford road in the Stitchcombe area, where there were 2 or 3 cottages that have now been made into one house.
