James Frederick Miller (1845 – 1896)

James was born in Cambridge to William and Charlotte Miller. The family lived at Trinity Hall where his father was a butler (1851). In 1861 James was an under butler at Trinity Hall. At the time of his death, aged 51, James was living at 1 Dorset Terrace, Cambridge.

Laura Miller (1848- 1822)  

Laura was born in Cambridge to William and Elizabeth Reynolds who lived “behind the town hall”. William was a painter but also a publican and by the time Laura was 12 he was running The Castle Inn on Castle Street, Cambridge.  At the time of her death, aged 75, Laura was living at 44 Lynwode Road, Cambridge.

James married Laura Reynolds in 1868. They married in Marylebone but were living at 3 Green Street in the parish of All Saints when their son was born later that year. James was working as a college butler but the census does not say which college. By 1881 James had become a wine merchant and the family were living in Benet Street, Cambridge. They moved to Norwich Street, Cambridge before the 1891 census. They had at least eight children.
