 and edited by Sue Mackay

Additonal Information

This is pre 1820 information mainly taken from actual images of parish registers held at the London Metropolitan Archives, Westminster Archives, West Yorkshire Archives, Manchester Central Library, non-conformist registers at the National Archives at Kew (RG4), online parish registers at CityArk or from original images at Family Search. I have also included some information from original images of Scottish old parish registers and English parish records which I have personally researched.

MILLER, William - Extra Data

 

(member of SEPHTON's Party)

 

The life of William MILLER, founder of the Baptist community in the Eastern Cape, is well documented, but most sources refer to his first wife as being Elizabeth DENNISON. In fact it seems that both William and Elizabeth had been married before.

 

London Metropolitan Archives

 

William MILLAR widower and Eliza DENNISON widow were married by banns on 8th August 1798 in St.Marylebone.

Both signed

Witnesses: John WILLOCK and Barbara [RUSSELL]

[NB the signature on this marriage matches that of William to Ann HUMPHREYS (widow) in 1843 in Grahamstown]

 

There are too many William MILLERs to be sure of his first marriage, but Eliza's maiden name was almost certainly LOVELOCK.

 

Thomas DENNISON and Eliza LOVELOCK were married by banns on 10th February 1795 in St.Marylebone

Both signed (Thomas signed his name DENISON)

Witnesses: Thos. BIRD and Ann PINCOT
