~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 From The Vermont Historical Magazine, "Dummerston," p. 45:

The Millers, of Scotland, were of Saxon origin, and followed the leadership of Edward, who conquered the Picts and founded Edinburgh, A.D. 449. The history of the family is rather obscure, until about the year 1600, when the country was distracted by civil war, assuming a religious character between Protestantism and Catholicism. The Millers took sides with the Protestants, and later with the Presbyterians or Covenanters, when persecuted by James the First, in his efforts to establish Episcopacy. The laws against Presbyterianism were so arbitrary that it led to great disorder and opposition by the inhabitance, and many personal encounters passed between the liberty-loving Scots and the minions of the king, in the enforcement of obnoxious laws. The name of James Miller is found twice recorded in a list of those who paid fines for transgressing the laws in the city of Edinburgh, ... [for account see VHM, p. 45].

The oppresion of the Covenanters led many to seek the shores of America where they could worship God without restraint. "Senior" Miller and his son, James, emigrated from Edinburgh about 1660.

 The Scotch Presbyterians were leaving Scotland for Ireland in the late 1600's and early 1700's. Scotland became a part of England in 1707. Then, in the early 1700's they had to leave Ireland and came to America.
