Henry Miller (1784–1866)

Another of the Heroes of Waterloo has passed away. It will be seen that our obituary records the decease of Henry Miller, Esquire, late Captain of the 40th Regiment, at his residence in Campbell street, on Tuesday the 10th instant. The departed gentleman has been a resident of Tasmania for many years past, and on the anniversary of Waterloo day was always to be observed with the Waterloo medal on his breast. At the battle of Waterloo Captain Miller ranked as a Lieutenant. Henry Miller, Esquire, generally known as the Victorian Millionaire, and lately Minister of Lands and Works in Victoria, is the eldest son of the deceased veteran.
