The Sydney Morning Herald - Mon 5 Jun 1899 p.1
Deaths.
MILLER.-June 4, at his residence Arbroath, Bondi-road, Waverley, Captain Peter Miller, in his 72nd year.

I can't find a birth for junior or a marriage for a Peter Miller/Millar to a Christina/Christian that fits ??

Such was the growth that in 1835 Van Diemen's Land was made a separate district, with Orton at Hobart as first chairman. His pastoral visit to Launceston in 1836 was extended to the infant settlement across Bass Strait, where on 24 April he was the first clergyman to preach in Melbourne. Next year he was corresponding helpfully with the Methodists in the new colony of South Australia.
