I have been given some more information from the 1841 & 1851 census for Wick on my Miller Family.

James Miller and Mary Mowat had two more sons and a daughter-
Elizabeth Miller was born abt.1831
Thomas Miller was born abt. 1838
John Miller was born abt. 1847.

Their son Alexander was born abt. 1836.

Thomas Miller must have immigrated to Australia as on the Gravestone of his parents it states errected by their son Thomas, Ropemaker Melbourne.
