Origin of Name

Named in honor of William Pashley Milner, of Sheffield. In 1852, he married Susannah Aldam, a descendant of several distinguished Quaker families. Later, he moved to Meersbrook Park, a house which later became the Ruskin Museum, and finally acquired Totley Hall, a fine Elizabethan mansion on the Derbyshire side of Sheffield. He was an enthusiastic gardener and the small graceful daffodil preserves his name to this day.
