Miller History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Dutch , English , German , Jewish , Scottish


The name Miller was originally an occupational name for someone who operated a mill. As an occupational name, it no doubt emerged independently throughout Britain.


Early Origins of the Miller family


The surname Miller was first found in various counties and shires throughout ancient Britain. The first records were found in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273, where the name was found in the original Latin form: Adam le Molendinator in Oxfordshire; and Achard Molendinarius in Hampshire. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)

"Molendinarius is a very frequent entry in the Hundred Rolls, but, oddly enough, no instance is given in English." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)

Wymund Molendinarius was listed in Somerset, 20 Edward I (during the 20th year of Edward I's reign.)

Interestingly, by the late 13th and into the 14th century, the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex were giving the name in the English form as in Ralph Muller in 1296, and Reginald Miller in 1327. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Reaney, P.H and R.M. Wilson, A Dictionary of English Surnames. London: Routledge, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-415-05737-X)

"There are three groups of Millers in England, the Millers of the south, who have their principal home in Dorset, where they are very numerous; the Millers of the north, who are found mostly in Lancashire, Durham, and Northumberland, and the Millers of the east, who frequent Essex and the adjacent counties."

The Miller Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Mea spes est in Deo
Motto Translation: My hope is in God.
