Default Henry MILLS

Name - "official" name and what they were known as
Henry Mills
Date and place of birth
Before 18 Dec 1822 (probably) in Newington, Middlesex
Names of parents
James Mills and Sarah unknown (probably - see notes on his baptism)
Date and place of baptism - if applicable
18 Dec 1822 St John Hackney - parents James and Sarah Mills of Newington. The problem is the date - on the censuses and his death cert Henry's age consistently suggests a dob of 1824. However, everything else (father's name and occupation, location) match. They are the only suitable Mills family baptising children in the area at that time.
Details of each of his or her marriages - if any
25 Dec 1845 St Lukes Finsbury to Mary Flexman
Occupation(s) - if any
Journeyman baker
Addresses where they lived (including county if in UK) - and please list which censuses you have or haven't found him/her on (if s/he lived in census times!).
1841 - can't find him
1851 - Brook Street Tottenham
1861 - the part of Islington where they were living is missing
1871 - 52 Norfolk Road Islington
1881, 1891, 1901 - 67 Norfolk road Islington

Date, place and cause of death
11 April 1902 at 67 Norfolk Road Islington - syncopic acute bronchitis
Date and place of burial.
16 April 1902 Islington Cemetery
Details of will / administration of their estate - if applicable
Not known

1841 Census
MILLS, Henery
ST GILES CAMBERWELL, Surrey
HO107 piece 1052 folio 6/13 page 18

"Henery" is with a James and a Sarah, both aged 40. James is a brewer.

Is this possible?
Newington and Camberwell are very close - both south of the river.

I think the baptism and marriage match father's occupation of shoemaker.

His father James was a shoemaker so I doubt if the brewer is the right family, but thanks for looking, Asa and Elizabeth.

Well here's a Henry Mills in the Old Kent Road Journeyman Baker

...and here's a James and Sarah Mills - James - Shoemaker. They seem a bit spread about though!

The problem is, there just too many Mills about! What I really want is to find the whole family together in 1841 (it's not much to ask, is it? ).

I'll follow up those suggestions, Maggie, thanks.

The baptism is Hackney, so the Newington would be Stoke Newington

Thanks, Asa. I didn't realise. I don't have Ancestry at present.
