Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. Lucky he had a brother with a not so common name. :D Bradley returned to England where he died in 1895:

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848-1954) - Saturday 13 April 1895 p.1
DEATHS
HAIGH.-On the 26th February, at his residence, Eastbourne, England, Bradley Haigh, late partner of Haigh Bros., Collins street, of pneumonia.

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848-1954) - Thursday 1 October 1914 p.6
PERSONAL
Mrs. Sarah Jane Haigh, widow of the late Samuel Haigh, 227 Collins street, died aged 90 years, at her residence, 52 Shakespeare grove, Hawthorn, on Tuesday. Born in Halifax, England, deceased came to Melbourne about 60 years ago, and had lived in Melbourne ever since her arrival. She had been closely identified with the growth of the Congregational denomination through her active interest in the Oxford Church, Collingwood, and later in the Prahran Church, and the Independent Church, Collins street.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you for looking. I guess we are stuck with William. Too common a name and possibly more than one born in Yorkshire in Victoria. I can't see a death or funeral notice for either of those deaths. I guess it will have to wait until I can view the shipping reel. Looks like 46 is an error.

MILLS, William Head Married M 40 1821 Proprietor Of Houses Peckham Surrey
That does not mean he was born there.


The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848-1954) - Monday 13 December 1915 p.1
DEATHS
MILLS.-On the 10th December, passed peacefully away at her residence, "Leneva," 130 Victoria road, Upper Hawthorn, Elizabeth, widow of the late William Mills, late of Sale. (Privately interred on December 11.)

Afterthought - that could be dangerous :D Daughter Lucy an infant in 1861. I have no death or marriage. I wonder if she can be of any help with death of William. ???

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

There is a death of a John MILLS at Sale in 1949, spouse of Lucy. I guess we would not be in luck for Lucy MILLS to have married a John MILLS ???

William still alive here:

FUNERALS
THE Friends of Mr WILLIAM MILLS are respectfully invited to follow the remains of his late daughter Eliza Jane to the place of Interment in the Melbourne General Cemetery. The funeral to move from his residence, Punt-hill, on Thursday, 17th inst., at half past 2 o'clock.
ALFRED AUGUSTUS SLEIGHT, undertaker, 83 Collins-street east and High street, St Kilda.


Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848-1954) - Wednesday 16 January 1895 p.1
DEATHS
MILLS.-On the 15th inst., at his mother's residence, 14 Vaucluse, Richmond, Howard, youngest son of Mrs. Mills and the late W. Mills, of Sale, Gippsland.

I'm thinking that perhaps William died in Sale. ???

Where is Punt-hill? Sale or South Yarra?

The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848-1954) - Wednesday 16 December 1874 p.12
FUNERALS
THE Friends of Mr WILLIAM MILLS are respectfully invited to follow the remains of his late daughter Eliza Jane to the place of Interment in the Melbourne General Cemetery. The funeral to move from his residence, Punt-hill, on Thursday, 17th inst., at half past 2 o'clock.


That could rule out those two deaths and mean it's perhaps an earlier one.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

No sign of Lucy and nothing to narrow the window for William's death. Eliza Jane 1874 to Howard 1895.

I'd say the word is... stuck. :rolleyes:

Dave
