Abstract:

Captain Joseph Miller and his daughter came to the US on the Lydia in 1813 and finally reached Albemarle County after many delays and disasters brought on by the war with Britain. Miller was well received and Jefferson, pursuing his interest in useful scientific pursuits and a desire to experiment with brewing his own beer at Monticello, soon befriended the British brewer. Miller trained Peter Hemings, who went on to produce fine, much-demanded ale (at first with wheat malt and eventually corn malt) at Monticello for many years. Miller moved away after Jefferson successfully took up his case in procuring the land of his inheritance (that had been denied him due to his British heritage), though his descendants eventually returned to live on the Farmington Estate.
