William Miller would be my GGG Grandfather all i have to go off is that he was present at his Daughter Elizabeth Miller's Wedding in 1844 when she married George English and his father Alexander English was present too

They married in Rothbury Oct13th 1844 from that date the trail has gone cold any ideas or help would be of great assistance

the Family tree startes for me here and leads up to the following names English,Paxton,Donaldson, Barclay,Conning, and possible the name of Millburn although my current interest is English Miller I have a lot of info on the others
if anyone needs help

Dear Ambler
One of my Milburns from Newcastle / Gateshead married Elizabeth Fife of Rothbury c.1870. Might we have a common link?
