ORANGE HILL, Tandragee, County Armagh (for sale in December, 2020) is a Georgian property which today comprises nearly five acres.


White's Speedicook Ltd, as the company is now known, was established as a corn and flour mill on the banks of the river Cusher, Tandragee, in 1841.

The business was founded by one Thomas Henry White, said to have come from Waterford.

I have, so far, been unable to establish a connection between the White family of Orange Hill and  White's Oats.

It would seem to be a remarkable coincidence, however, that there could have been two gentlemen by the name of Thomas Henry White in Tandragee.

Sulgrave in Northants was also the home of the Washingtons.
