Epithetminister of High Bonnybridge St Helen's
ActivityThe Rev. Thomas Miller, minister of High Bonnybridge St Helen's Church, Bonnybridge, was born on 3 March 1869 and died on 3 December 1942. His senior school and university education occurred in Edinburgh and Glasgow. He then went to Canada where he was catechist in the Canadian Presbyterian Church at Rockville, Chebogue, Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia from 1891 to 1893, and he was licensed and ordained in Canada in 1895. He returned to Scotland some years later, and was admitted by the General Assembly in 1914. He had a number of short-term appointments in Kirkwall St Magnus, Alloa, Fyvie and Alvah Churches in the next few years, before he was appointed to Bonnybridge, a United Free Church charge, in 1921. On the Union of the United Free Church with the Church of Scotland in 1929, the charge became High Bonnybridge St Helen's, and Rev. Miller remained the minister until his death. Rev. Miller carried out much research into legal and local history in his spare time, with a particular emphasis on the preparation of an edition of the protocol book of sir James Darow (1469-1484), left uncompleted at his death.
