My grandpa told me that the Mills name is Dutch and English. I've also heard some Mills' are from Scotland too. But I'm not Spanish Though. My Mills' family has Mostly Black or Brown Hair (Dark hair). I have Brownish Blonde, I get that from another side of my family, (Irish).
Leonard J. Mills
I'm from India. The name is English. I think I got this surname because the English ruled India for 200 odd years. Most probably my ancestor married someone of Indian origin and the name passed down to generations.

If there are any Irish Mills"s out there would love to here from you. my grandfather on my father's side was Irish.the story i was told was his father had a dairy farm outside of dublin. when he died Samuel Mills (my grandfather) and his brother had a falling out. anyway Samuel Mills left for the US and his brother stayed to run the dairy farm. I know in my heart there is family still there and hopefully interested as I am in connecting with long lost family.
From Ireland, black hair, blue eyes, light skin. Always thought the name was English so no surprise for me there. Just wanted to say hello to my fellow "grinders".
Yep lots of us Mills's in Scotland mainly Dundee.
There was a Samuel Mills who owned land in Kildare (not far from Dublin) in the 1800's. The place was called 'Turnings'. Ring any bells? First names tended to get handed on down to sons.
Born in Evansville, Indiana & currently residing in Virginia Beach, VA. Most of the Mills' that I know of are living around Indiana or Illinois. I met another Mills here in VA Beach that said his whole family is from Canada and that is where the Mills name came from right after England.
I was born in Orlando Florida and now live in Nashville Tennessee. I was told by my father that our family probably immigrated from England, but I'm light skinned with auburn hair and hazel eyes, so now I'm beginning to wonder if my ancestors were Scottish or Irish. I think I'll do some more research because now I'm intrigued.
Hello, I'm Irish, born in Dublin, fair skinned, brown eyes. Long line of Mills's from Dublin. Not a traditional Irish name. Originated from English settlers in Ireland.
I always thought it was from like Spain and England lol
