The first record of the Millerd Family of Warwick, Kent County, Rhode Island appears in 1740 when Nathaniel Millerd signed a promissory bond to Edward Thurber. Either this Nathaniel or his father died the following year in 1741. A Nathaniel Millerd was born in February 1772 and married Betsey Green in 1793. The couple had five children between 1794 and 1806: Augustus, Welcome, Julia, George, and Eliza. In 1800 Nathaniel Millerd was elected to a captaincy in the Rhode Island infantry.
