Sir Thomas Miller, 5th Baronet
Miller was the eldest son of Sir John Miller, 4th Baronet of Lavant near Chichester, and his wife Susan Combe, daughter of Matthew Combe MD of Winchester, and was baptised on 5 May 1731. He entered Corpus Christi, Cambridge in 1753. He married firstly Hannah Black, daughter of John Black, alderman of Norwich on 1 June 1762. In 1770, he bought a country house in Hampshire called Froyle Place with the manor of Froyle. He succeeded his father in the baronetcy on 19 April 1772.
Miller was out of Parliament for the next 26 years, but maintained his political interest by joining the Whig Club on 4 April 1785 and Brooks on 20 May 1791. Sometime around 1780 he made a second marriage to Elizabeth Edwards. He moved from Sussex to Hampshire in this time.
