He entered a mark in 1767 at Goldsmiths Hall from Salisbury Court and was assessed to Land Tax there until 1771. The 1772 assessment book for the property refers to the executors of Richard Mills.

19 March 1772
Will of Richard Mills, Silver Smith of Saint Bride , City of London was proved at PCC [ TNA/PROB 11/976/124]

Very pedantic will. Half a page of very precise instructions for his coffin and burial arrangements, although executors not to spend more than £20 !
His brother John and sister Ann ???ington of Birmingham to each to receive one shilling only. I believe it was necessary to leave a bequest to your nearest living relatives - so presumably he left no wife or children. Leaving one shilling was a sign of disfavour !
Sister Ann Hill of the parish of St Sepulcher £20

Other bequests to
John Cooper of St Martin le Grand (one of the two executors ) . His daughter is given as Catherine Cooper
George Rankin of Hatton Garden , Peruke Maker (the other executor )
John Glover of St James, Clerkenwell, Silversmith
James Lane
Mr John Olive Mr George Padmore and several somewhat unreadable others given a ring each of a guinea value.
George Padmore is probably the bucklemaking silversmith of Frith Street who died in August 1774

Residue to cousin Joseph Mills, son of Joseph Mills of America
Signed 5th March 1772
Abel Bradley, Salisbury Court
Charles White ,servant to Mr Mills
