1771: In the Valentine Papers (Bacon: Henrico County Section): 2/19/1771: "William Miller and Elizabeth, his wife" are noted as "residuary legatees under the will of John Williamson the Elder, deed to Charles Sneed L30. 170 acres in Henrico Co. adjoining George's Branch, Henry Stoakes, Watson and Wm. Patman".

1783: Anne Virginia "Jean" Agnew's papers in Library of Virginia-Richmond note a William Miller in the 1783 Henrico Co. Census with 17 slaves which is likely this William Miller (in his mid 40's) born in Isle of Wight Co., VA who relocated to Henrico Co., VA as a young man to be near his other Miller relatives with his wife Elizabeth Clayton (likely the Elizabeth mentioned above in 1771). There is a second William Miler noted in the 1783 Henrico Co. Census with no slaves who is likely the William Miller b- Abt. 1768 of Isle of Wight Co., VA (son of Benjamin Miller) at age about 15.

1746: In William's father will; it notes when he and his brother, James reach 16 years of age; they can learn a trade; so James is 5 (parish record notes his birth as 12/4/1739) and William I will assume is about 15 at time of their father's death in 1746. William will states: "my two sons may be bound to such trades as is their desire (sic) to lead them to at the age of sixteen".


He is the son of William Miller and Margaret Unknown.
