mills Mill House in top 50 most popular house names

As I find to my distraction when researching, Mill House is a popular house name - being applied to both converted mill properties, and also to (say) the millers house, or indeed to properties that had no historical connection with a mill, except perhaps some proximity to a mill site.

In fact, according to the latest Halifax house names survey, Mill House is the 37th most popular house name in the UK (up from 47th in their last survey in 1998). Regional analysis also noted a good number of names echoing the Industrial Revoluton in Northern England, where The Mill joins Mill House in the records. The survey is based on analysing the 2.5 million addresses that The Halifax has mortgage records for.
