Charles Mills, 1st Baron Hillingdon

Charles Henry Mills, 1st Baron Hillingdon (26 April 1830 – 3 April 1898), known as Sir Charles Mills, 2nd Baronet, from 1872 to 1886, was an Anglo-Jewry banker and Conservative politician.

Hillingdon was the only son of Sir Charles Mills, 1st Baronet, and his wife Emily, daughter of Richard Henry Cox. He was a partner in the banking firm of Glyn, Mills & Co. In 1865 he entered Parliament for Northallerton, a seat he held until 1866, and later represented Kent West from 1868 to 1885. He succeeded his father in the baronetcy in 1872 and on 15 February 1886 he was raised to the peerage as Baron Hillingdon, of Hillingdon in the County of Middlesex.[1]

Lord Hillingdon married Lady Louisa Isabella, daughter of Henry Lascelles, 3rd Earl of Harewood, in 1853. He died in April 1898, aged 67, and was succeeded in his titles by his eldest son Charles. Lady Hillingdon died in November 1918, aged 88.
