Daisy and Llewellyn's children, to the best of my knowledge, were all born in Papakura - probably in their home on the Great South Road in Papakura.
They were born from 1900 through 1914 and the youngest, Kenneth Gordon MILLS b.1914 was registered at Drury - Drury being the little village at the southern end of Papakura.
In those days, the MILLS farm was pretty much an outlier on the Papakura map, closer to Drury than Papakura.

Llewellyn was a fairly entreprenerial type; he obviously had his small holding/farm in Papakura, he had a Real Estate business in Papakura and then moved to Thames some time later and had the Salutation Arms in Thames (a Publican).. He returned to Onehunga later in life.

I think his main occupation would be Farmer - his father had a piece of land out in Papakura, the southern end, and Llewellyn had a chunk of that farm to raise his family on. The Real Estate business in Papakura would have been a way of generating more income we believe.
