Verification & Concerns Returns to 'Top of Page'

  1. No baptismal record for John Mills can be found in Horne and there are also no baptismal records in Horne for the period 1694-1711 so the parentage is a bit of guesswork. In addition following this period there were a number of 'Adult Baptisms' implying that maybe baptisms did not take place in this period in Horne . In particular Ruth Blundell & Judith Mills were baptised on the same day as 'Adults'
  2. No baptismal record for Judith Blundell can be found. However a Judith Mills was baptised 'an Adult' on 21st April 1723 in Horne, Surrey and this may account for no baptismal record at birth. The marriage record shows both John Mills and Judith Blundell as living in Horne and George Blundell was the only Blundell family in Horne at that time that were producing children. The second male child of John & Judith was called George possibly after her father.
  3. There were a number of other John Mills born Lingfield and in the surrounding parishes between 1691 - 1705. (age at marriage of 16 to age 60 at birth of youngest child)
    1. 11/05/1694 the son of Richard in Horley.
    2. 20/04/1703 the son of John of Lingfield but died 28/05/1704
  4. There were numerous differant spellings of "Mills" in the parish registers eg Mills,Miles, Milles, Myles, Mylles, Mylls, Millins, Molles.
