windmills Prints and painting of windmills by Sydney Lee

Robert Meyrick at the School of Art, Aberystwyth University, is writing a book about the artist Sydney Lee RA (1866-1949). Lee made quite a number of prints and paintings of windmills which are presumed to be in Kent because his wife and her family were from the Rochester area and he did much work around and about the city. However since a number of the works are all simply titled Windmill they are currently unidentified. These were all made around 1903-1920 so of course there's a good chance some of these windmills no longer exist. Any suggestions as to which mills these illustrations show?

post mill 1

post mill 2 - identified as North Tuddenham, Norfolk

smock mill 1 - identified as Little Mill, Prospect Hill, Frindsbury

smock mill 1 (again) and smock mill 2 - Little and Great mills, Prospect Hill, Frindsbury

Rye, East Sussex

Update:[22/1/12] Millwright Vincent Pargetter has identified some of the mills shown, and noted that the images are mirror reversed due to the printing process used to reproduce them.
