The Millett family Tree
It seems to be Richard Oke Millett who instigated gathering together material associated with the Millett family in Cornwall. He drew up a family tree c 1889 and while it is not possible to be sure where this information came from, many of the family trees on the tree appear in the wonderfully name 'Collectanea Cornubiensa'. This collection of Cornish biographical data was produced by Groge Clement Boase and was printed in 1890. Pages relevant to our family tree can be found here.
The breadth of the tree is vast so this website will stick with following our male family line back in time. I call this the Marazion Line as it is here that the trace runs out in the mid 17th Century.
I think it will be fun, and add a bit of context, to include the monarchs and some noteable events in English history with each generation.
My version of the family tree is available on Ancestry.co.uk. There is also a fabulous resource of Millett family information on Tony Millett's Website. Tony, from New Zealand, has put in a lot of hard work into searching the Milletts of Bosavern and Marazion. If anyone is researching the Milletts then a visit to his website is a must.

This is a collection of biographical and topographical notes relating to the County of Cornwall. (George Clement Boase, printed 1890).
The pages shown below are those of particular interest to Cornish Milletts everywhere.
Of particular note is the possible connection with our own family tree drawn up by R.O. Millett c1889. There are a number of possibilities. He obtained the information through this link from George Clement Boase, The flow of information might have been the other way round, or rather less romantically, he purchased the book!
As is often the case, when obtaining information from a number of different sources, it does throw up some discrepancies, but then that's genealogy for you. If you notice anything which you believe to be different then please let me know.
It is always nice to hear from other people researching the same Surname. I am not an expert on the Millett family name in fact we could probably teach each other something!
