I can only find the following in 1841 census
Edw Lock Mills, 65, Farmer, N
Sarah Mills, 55, , N
John Mills, 25, Ag lab, Y
Louisa Mills, [20 or 28], , Y
Plus Clement 6, Edward 4, Ann 2, Mary 11 months
Address Merle Common, Limpsfield
Birth registration/baptism for children under surname LOCK
Clement Alexander Lock bap 1835, Father Farmer
Edward Francis Lock born 1836 bap 1837, Father Farm servant to his father
Victoria Ann Lock MMN Steer born and bap 1838, Father Farmer
Katherine Mary Matilda Lock (assumed to be Female Lock, MMN Steer reg Sep Q 1840) born and
bap 1840, Father Farmer
John Henley Lock MMN Steer born and bap 1843, Father Farmer
It seems to me to be the right family.
I assume her age is 20, rounded down from 24, which fits in with birth in 1817. Louisa was
definitely conceived before her parents marriage 1 Nov 1816, she was born 6 Jan 1817,
baptised 2 Feb 1817.

Louisa's age is interesting.
John Steer married Ann Hoadley 1 Nov 1816 Louisa Steer baptised 2 Feb 1817
(born 1817 or before) Louisa Steer married John Lockmills 16 Nov 1834 (no
mention of her age or parental consent, but not required by law at that time
for marriage by Banns) Louisa Mills 1841 census - age difficult to read,
could be 20 or 28, probably the latter Louisa Mills death 1846 GRO aged 33
In other words, she appears also to have been born before her parents
married, it may have been her birth which triggered them into calling the
Banns after 2 years + relationship.
In most of my documented marriages, they are usually well before, or very
soon after a child was born, not many of them waited until two children had
been born before tying the knot - if they were intending to get married that
