About The MILLER & BROWN families
of Yorkshire, Lancashire, Leicestershire & Derbyshire

Please sign in to see more.
James Miller (1815-1893) was born in the village of East Leake in 
Nottinghamshire, where his ancestors had lived since the early 1700s. As a 
boy, he worked in a brickyard and as a farm labourer, but after his marriage 
to Mary Cuckson (1815-1878) at Gamston, Notts in 1838 he worked as a 
drainage man at various large estates in Nottinghamshire and Cheshire.  
By 1848, when my gg-grandfather John was born, the family was living at Gorsey 
Bank Farm, near Siddington in Cheshire.  James & Mary moved with their eight 
children to the village of Weston Underwood, a few miles north-west of Derby, 
in the late 1850s, where they worked as land drainers, brick and pipe 
makers, farmers, grocers & shopkeepers, and even ran the post 
office for many years.

John Miller (1848-1922) married Eliza Sheales Newman (1844-1919) 
in the adjacent village of Mugginton in 1869.  Over the next twenty years John 
& Eliza had ten children who survived to adulthood, four girls & six boys.

Descendants of eight siblings are now scattered all over the world, and this 
web site has been set up to share information about our individual branches.  
I would like to thank my father Bud Payne, Gwen Miller, Mary Hirst and 
Lynne Tedder for providing much of the material presented here.  I look 
forward to receiving more photos and data in due course, and will continue 
adding material to the site as it comes in.

Welcome to the latest additions to the MILLER family, George Weston and 
his wife Pamela née FENNA, from Kibworth Harcourt in South 
Leicestershire.  Pamela is descended from James & Mary MILLER's daughter 
Elizabeth (b. 1841), who married Eli FENNA in 1862 at Manchester Cathedral.  I 
look forward to adding details of their branch in due course.

Thanks also to Lynne Tedder for a list of recent additions to the 
family from Alberta.  I'll add them to the database shortly.
