Early Origins of the Millham family


The surname Millham was first found in Mid Norfolk at Mileham, a village mid way between East Dereham and Fakenham. The village dates back to the Dopmesday Book where it was listed as Meleham and literally meant "homestead or village with a mill," having derived from the Old English words myln + ham.
