Founded by William Henry Miller (1789-1848), the library at Britwell Court was left to a cousin, Miss March. Samuel Christy, who adopted the name of Christie-Miller, inherited the library and Britwell Court from her before 1852, and added many books of considerable importance. The first two parts of the library catalogue, "Divinity" and "Voyages and Travels," were published in 1873. The third part,"British History," followed in 1876. See De Ricci, pp. 105-113.
