The Willetts of Colchester, Essex (and Daylight Saving) 2 of 2

I have split my current discussion of the Willetts of Colchester into two posts:

  2. (This Post) Checking out the structure of the family at the beginning of the 19th Century (William Willett,  the elder’s ancestors). Hopefully this will provide a few hooks for those who think they are related to the Colchester Willetts.

This article is fairly long and detailed – a briefer post about Willett Antecedents summarises some of the relationships.

Although I have been concentrating on my own line of Faulders (who I can trace back to North Cumberland in 1754), I am taking an interest in other lines because they may eventually give a clue to my line further back.

I have also been working with GenMap UK an application that will map Genealogical Data. This has helped me get a view of where there are major groups of Faulders. (more…)
