History

Peter Miller (Petriis Mueller) 1740-1819

Peter Miller, Palatine Irish American and United Empire Loyalist, has been put on record in, The Loyalists of the Eastern Townships of Quebec (1984). He was among those Loyalists who had joined in with the British Army at Crown Point in the autumn of 1776. He had served with Captain Robert Leake's Company until his honourable discharge in 1781. His family, like other New York State Loyalist families, had been removed from their farm because they had joined the enemy. Peter and Garrett Miller and their families lived in the camp provided for the refugees at Sorel until the War ended in 1783.

They came to Missisquoi Bay in 1784 and settled on adjoining lots in St. Armand Seigniory which turned out to be later located right on the Vermont boundary line.

These papers deal mostly with the family and descendants of Peter's son, Charles who continued to live on the same property. Documents show that Captain Charles Miller served in the 4th Battalion of St. Armand Militia for several years.

The Peter McCutcheon mentioned in the early documents was the father of Margaret McCutcheon, wife of Charles Miller. The book mentioned above lists descendants of Peter Miller living today.
