James Mills (d.1792)

JAMES MILLS was a convict who was buried in an unmarked grave at St. John’s Cemetery, Parramatta on 28 April 1792. His identity is not clear as there were two convicts named JAMES MILLS who arrived in the colony prior to this burial date; Third Fleet convicts JAMES MILLS per Britannia (1791) and JAMES MILLS per Gorgon (1791). Further research required for positive identification.

Note: JOHN MILLS, buried less than a week earlier on 20 April 1792 may have been one of the JAMES MILLS transported with the Third Fleet. Perhaps JOHN was merely an alias he used to differentiate himself from this JAMES MILLS.
