There is no documentation that Apphya is Edward's daughter however it is possible based on some association of signers of wills, and other documents.

It is also possible that Apphya Miller was Apphya Wilson (who would have been living about this time) who married a Miller who died young and Apphya then remarried at least one additional husband.


I have found several records of an Edward Miller in Isle of Wight, Virginia including a land patent on 3/11/1666 for land (250 acres) near the Isle of Wight/Surry County, Virginia line. Also an Edward Miller witnessed a will with a William Wilson and a William Wilson was noted as the Ext. of John Miller (b- Abt. 1635) estate along with John's daughter (Margaret). So it is likely that Edward Miller and John Miller (living in Elizabeth City Co., Virginia at the time of his death) were the brothers (half). William Wilson may have been Margaret's husband. I will add comments on the other documents noting an Edward Miller in Virginia (between 1660 and 1690) in the future.


  • Edward is noted in his father's will dated 6/24/1656.
