Mary Dorothy Miller was the daughter of Joseph Dundas Miller and Elizabeth Tomlinson of Liverpool. She was born in Bahia, Brazil, 17 June 1823. Joseph Dundas was a Brazilian shipping merchant. He sailed to Bahia, Brazil, in 1814. He returned with his family to England sometime between 1829 and 1835. The first five children in the family were born in Bahia, Brazil; their three other children were born in Liverpool.

Mary Dorothy married William Gordon, son of William Gordon, on 20 April 1847 in Walton-on-the-Hill, in Lancashire in the Liverpool area. They had ten children before she died in New Brighton in the Wallasey area, Merseyside, across the river from Liverpool. She was 36.

Mary Dorothy was buried in the graveyard of St. Michael in the Hamlet Church in the Toxteth Park area of Liverpool. This church was consecrated in 1815. The churchyard was restored in 1881. The last burial here was in 1910.

Four years after her death William Gordon married Margaret Steele and they had five children. By 1870 the family had moved to Scotland.
