      Exwick Mill was run and occupied by the Mallett family for around 100 years. William Rice Mallett had been a Miller with his father, John Mallett at Thorverton Mill, when, after his father's death he moved to Exwick Mill in 1859. His son, William Richard was born on 25th December 1858. William Richard followed his father into the business, age 16, and by 1885 was taking more responsibility in the business. It was William Richard that rebuilt the mill in 1888, to the building that exists today. He was a national expert on mills and milling, publishing papers on wheat and flour production and water power. He died in 1935 leaving 66,076 (a value of almost 4 million in 2012).
