Biography

John Miller MP Gender: Male Birth: October 21, 1604 Ashford, Kent, England Death: June 14, 1653 (48) Groton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony, Colonial America Immediate Family: Husband of Lydia Miller and Lydia Miller [1] Who was the wife of Rev. John Miller? The parents and birth date and birth location of Lydia, the wife of Rev. John Miller are not known.

Genealogists appear to have confused several Lydias. Another Lydia, Lydia Coombs, daughter of Francis Coombs and Mary Barker, married another John Miller, not this Rev. John Miller.

Furthermore, Rev. John Miller was associated with John Elliot, the Apostle to the Indians, in Roxbury, but he was NOT married to John Elliot's sister, Lydia Elliot Penniman, nor Elliot's niece, also called Lydia. Much is known about John Elliot's family and it is unlikely that Lydia NN Miller was a relative of his.

The parents and birth date and birth location of Lydia, the wife of Rev. John Miller are not known.

The Miller family goes back to the town of Kendal, also known as Kirkby Kendal, in what used to be Westmorland County, but is now part of Cumbria County in the far northwest of England. [2] Mr. John & Margaret Miller of Market Place in Kendal, Westmoreland, were the parents of at least four children: Rebecca, Thomas, Dorothy and William.1 Margaret Miller was a widow when she married John on 18 Feb 1739 in Kendal and was listed as Mrs. Holme on the marriage record.[3]

  • The Miller Family.

Name Origin: GERMANY, ENGLAND, JEWISH The name Miller can be found in many sections of Western Europe, from England & Scotland to Holland and Germany. In Germany (as well as England), the Miller surname is thought to have originated in Bavaria, Germany. As hereditary surnames began to be adopted in that area, beginning in the 12th Century, people were often identified by the kind of work they did. Miller is an occupational name for a "miller", derived from the Old Germanic "Mulinari". The name is also a Jewish Ashkenazi name. [3]

Miller-3642 and Miller-1149 appear to represent the same person because: The profiles should be merged as they represent the same person. The parents are Martin Miller & Susan Hicks, who are listed in the Cambridge University Alumni biography for John Miller, sourced in the Miller-3642 profile.
