James Mill (1773 - 1836)

Along with his son, John Stuart Mill, James Mill expounded and developed both utilitarian ethics and classical economic theory.

Mill lived until 1810 at 12 Rodney St, Pentonville, where his son John Stuart was born, before moving to Newington Green in North London for the years to 1814. From then until 1831 he and his family lived in Queen Square, now Queen Anne’s Gate, adjacent to the property owned by Bentham and described under his entry above. Ricardo was a frequent visitor at the address. Mill died in Church St, Kensington and is buried at St Mary Abbots, Kensington where there is a memorial to him.
