Miller Family from Wick
« on: Sunday 31 July 05 16:06 BST (UK) »
My first post on this board so Hi to everyone.

One off my families on my tree is the Miller family from Stirkoke & Kirkhill.
I have traced the family back to Alexander MILLER and his wife Elizabeth HARPER.
I believe Alexander's parents to have been William MILLER and Christian HAROLD??? going by the Scottish naming pattern could be.

The children off Alexander & Elizabeth were---
WILLIAM MILLER C 1796 he married ELIZABETH JOHNSTON 1820 in Wick I have more info on their family.

JAMES MILLER c 1801 he married MARY MOWAT 1826 in Wick they were my gggrandparents

JOHN MILLER b 1803 no info.

CHRISTIAN MILLER C. 1806 no info.

ALEXANDER MILLER C. 1810 he married ISABEL HARPER 1838 in Wick

DONALD MILLER c. 1813 he married MARY COGHILL 1843 in Wick. I have more info on their family.

If anyone can connect to these Miller's I would be pleased to hear from you.

Regards Mary :)

I believe we have a connection!!

I have the death certificate of Catherine Reid (nee Miller) and it lists her parents as Alexander Miller and Elizabeth Harper. I also have her in a few census returns.

She married David Reid in 1825 and had nine children

James, David, Elizabeth, Jane, Christina, Alexander, Catherine, Donald (direct line) and William.

Alexander Reid and his brother Donald moved to Birkenhead around 1860.

Hi,
  Thank you for your reply. I did find the record on IGI which made me think that William and Christian could have been his parents, I will try and verify this by getting the extract from Scotlands People.

Best wishes
Mary.
