Henry Miller - 40th Regiment of Foot
« on: Tuesday 23 October 18 21:33 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I am searching Henry Miller born abt 1848 who served in the 40th Foot Regiment as a Bandsman.  He married 1871 in Carlisle to Rebecca Emslie.  One of their children was born in Carlisle, one in Ireland and the rest in India. Henry died 1884 in Delalio ?? India and was buried there in December of that year.
Henry is shown to be born in Shoreditch with his father John Miller born Scotland on the 1851 census for Romford, Essex and visitors with a William Slipper.  Odd , so I traced back to see the relationships with Wm Slipper and John Henry.   Wm Slipper and Donald Miller born Caithness in Scotland were both in the 77th Foot Regiment about the same age and recruited in the same year. Donald in Edinburgh and William in Norwich.  I have records of Henry's death in India and his children's birth records.

Hi Glenda,
Henry Miller is my great great grandfather and I too have been researching him. I would love to compare notes. I found lots of births out in India of many more children that seem not to have made it home with Rebecca. I assume he is your ancestor too, we would be related then. My email address is (*) .. it would be great to hear from you and see if we might be able to fill in some blanks. I didnít have the Shoreditch info or the birth place info, very interesting. It explains why I have such a lot of Scottish ancestry showing on my DNA results!
I hope to hear from you soon
Ronan
