Meaning and Origin

  • The name Millward is rooted in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It was originally a name for someone who worked as a miller or the keeper of a mill. The surname Millward is derived from the Old English word mylenweard. This name is common in the southern and western counties; elsewhere, the form Milner predominates. The "mill-ward" was the keeper of the mill having derived from the Middle English words "melle, mulle, and mulne.".
  • Early origins of the Millward family was first found in Derbyshire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

A few of my family members have done dna tests. We have a few proven dna connections via the Millward line, the common ancestors with our dna cousins are Richard Millward and Mary Price. We descend from a son of John Price Millward and Ann Williams ( many dna cousins on the Williams line as well). My family tree is on Ancestry. Best wishes, Isabelle
