edited and sourced this man's death date.

His son, John Miller is a duplicate to Miller-5769 has dates that must be incorrect. (error data base led me to profile) This John (died 1579) He had a muddled will and was confused. He wanted to nominate his minor grandson as executors but had said that his executor was the heir (potential legal probs) He does mention Gyles Winterhey and other Winterhayes as sons in law in main and oral will. His eldest son, John was already of age at his father's death. He already had several sons John the son died 1592-5 and by then had fathered 10 children, including Robert Miller/Meller MP born in about 1565

(have discussed problem of Jane Cokerham on )

I added the father John Miller b. 1468 as father to this profile, so that I could look at the descendant tree to get a better idea of what is wrong in the family connections. It appears to me that there are two distinct women named Jane Cockeram. One is supposed to be the wife of this John Miller b. 1515, but the other is not, otherwise he would be marrying his own sister.

John is 20 degrees from AJ Jacobs, 26 degrees from Carol Keeling, 15 degrees from George Washington and 18 degrees from Queen Elizabeth II Windsor on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
