Origins of surname
The original Miller was the owner or operator of a corn mill. There were undoubtedly several given this common surname independently. It is derived from the old English words mylene and milne, and ultimately from the Latin molere, meaning 'to grind'.
The name does not appear in Jersey until the mid 18th century, but you wait a long time and then along come four Millers in different families in a row. First, in 1756, was the baptism of Joseph, the son of William and Mary Purcher. This was followed the next year by the baptism of Edward, the son of Thomas and an unknown Jane, and in 1765 by Humphrey, the son of Henry and Bridget Cavendish.
Thomas and Anne Martin then had three children baptised in St Brelade in the 1770s.
