|Apparently the Millers
have been royalty (Scottish,
French) from the 9th century until 1406 when
we started mixing with regular folk (oh well).
As well as having
descended from royalty (which explains their
genteel manner) the Miller's are also direct
descendents from at least two Saints (Saint
Margaret of Scotland go
here for the connection and
Saint Olga of Kiev, go
here for the connection) which probably
explains their beatific disposition.
