William Mills was appointed vicar of Chewton Mendip on 30th April 1687 replacing Edmund Quarles who had died. His patron was  William Kingsmill  That is consistent with the data held in the Clergy database  but that source incorrectly record the end of his tenure in 1706 when all other sources show that Nathanial Till-Adam was appointed in 1697. Other sources identify that his ten-year tenure was a relatively peaceful time. No record of him being anything other than the village priest has yet been found.
It is possible that his name may have been spelt like Miles or Myles on occasion but there is nothing to link him to members of that family or the Mills family recorded in the Victorian era.
