Ephraim Mills
« on: Saturday 06 January 18 11:19 GMT (UK) »
I wondered if anyone has any information about Ephraim Mills. He was a convict sent over in 1834 for stealing a 🐑. On board HMS Tanner. I know that he died out there a good age. 24 October 1881. Aged 76 NSW.did he have a pardon.

He applied to have his family brought out, which was approved, but I haven't searched to see if it eventuated or not

:)

adding: application dated 1841 has Wife Sarah; Sons John(14), Ephraim(11), Thomas(9), William( 8 )

Did he marry?

371/1853 V1853371 81 MILLS Ephraim to THOMAS A M district JR

He died with death registration at West Maitland. There is one female death that could fit:

10127/1887 MILLS  Mary A parents JOSEPH and MARY at WEST MAITLAND

I canít see any births to the couple.

Ephraim buried at Campbellís Hill Cemetery:

Campbells Hill Church of England Cemetery Church of England B2 63 Monumental Double Occupied
