Aubrey N. St. John Mildmay was born in Long Marston, Yorkshire, England, the son of a Reverend. He was educated at Winchester College, Oxford, and Wells Theological College, commencing a ministerial career in 1890. He came to B.C. in 1902, and served as the principal of a preparatory school for boys in Vernon from 1903 - 1907.

He married in 1902. B.C. Vital Statistics on-line provides no information on the marriage, but does provide information that twins Neville A.S. and Walter M.S. Mildmay were born May 4, 1903 in Vernon, but both died a couple of weeks later. Another child, Versus Arundell Maunder St. John Mildmay, died Nov. 29 1965 aged 59 at Ganges per BC Vital Statistics.

Mildmay wrote a number of books, and was engaged in classical tuition and press work. He retired from the University of British Columbia in 1926 as an Assistant Professor. He exhibited in Vancouver with the B.C. Society of Fine Arts in June 1927.

A poem of his titled "Sea-Room" was published in the Christmas 1918 Volume One of The Gold Stripe, a veteran's publication.

Mildmay exhibited his work in other shows, and was active in support of the arts in Vancouver. He was acquainted with the Sherman family, and served as one of the pall-bearers at the funeral of R.S. Sherman's mother in 1923.

McMann's Canadian Who's Who Index notes that he was born in 1865, was a Reverend of the Anglican Church, and was published in Volume 12. B.C. Vital Statistics on-line provides no information on Mildmay's death.
