Death of a remarkable Peldon Resident
The death occured on Thursday May 13 of Mr George Miller, Bernard's Cottages [ Barnard's Cottages ], Mersea Road, Peldon, who attained his 102nd birthday last month. Born at Fingringhoe, he had been a farm labourer all his life, starting work when he was eight years of age. Until recently he had never had a day's illness, and had never had to seek medical aid. When he celebrated his 101st birthday he wore a new seat that he had been measured for in honour of the occasion.
He had some vivid memories of the earthquake over 50 years ago, and a memorable snowstorm, and until two or three years ago he often walked half a mile to chapel and worked in his garden.
Date: 22 May 1937
