I have included the information you requested. I am certainly curious why you are asking about a hundred-year-old mystery. Small towns spring up and die all the time. What is special about this one? Since you also mentioned the events surrounding Relvinian, I do have records of earthquakes on the mainland from the Hedge Maze to the Serpent Spine Mountains. It is certainly possible that affected this small hamlet. I’m including all the information I found. Let me know if you need anything else.

Report to the Royal Surveyor by Clark of Skara Brae
August the Tenth, Year 305
I finished my tour of the area we discussed. I make the following modifications to Lord British’s maps: Included are the updated maps of Yew’s boundaries.
The hamlet of Millshire is no longer to be included on maps or town registries. Sadly, I only found debris at the location where the town was. I noticed some underground ruins poking up through the earth near where the center of town should be, possibly uncovered by the earthquakes a year or two back. The few skeletons I found seemed to be death by natural causes or possibly bad well water. Found this strange statement along with some healer’s supplies in a locked chest:
“Forced them underground with fire and sealed us all in. Can’t let it get out. “
Sorry I can’t tell you more. End report.
