John Mills was born on May 12 1817, in Lambeth Angell Town England.
I can only find two baptisms and both are before that date so don't fit.

Seems the Checkley family came from Cork, Ireland in 1838 ? John also arrived 'free' in 1838 ?

I can't find the two arrivals.

I can't find a Mills marriage to Morse or Brier. One notice in Trove has the name as Brier-Mills.

L M K Mills = Leonard Merle Kenneth

J C R Mills = John Checkley R... ?
