The name Millward is rooted in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It was originally a name for someone who worked as a miller or the keeper of a mill. The surname Millward is derived from the Old English word mylenweard. This name is common in the southern and western counties; elsewhere, the form Milner predominates.

The surname Millward was first found in Derbyshire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Millward are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Millward include Milward, Milwood and others.

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Millward or a variant listed above:
