Gillett family tree of the small village of Urchfont Wiltshire.

Journal by mikediskett

I am working on the history of the Gillett family of the small village of Urchfont in Wiltshire, so far I am back to my 11th Great Grandfather born about 1555. I may be able to help with anybody researching the Gillett's of that area, or if anybody has any information on the Gillett family, I would be grateful. The Gillett's have been in England since 1066.

Hi Karikats
What Gillett/Gillett's are you researching in Urchfont? Your husband and I could be from the same line of Gillett.
