Windy the site doesn't refer to Collett employment separately but generally, if it's known, someone's occupation will have been mentioned but, of course, that means doing a search.  I'll pass the info you have onto Brian Collett to see if he has any further information.

Glad Mrs Windy is on the mend.

Lizzie,

I looked at the Suffolk pages (about 3 and they did look comprehensive) and did an F3 search on "miller" and "mill".  No joy.  Anyway, I hope Brian finds my data useful.

Windy - Brian Collett says he hasn't found Charles Thomas Collett son of Robert, but hasn't given up hope of discovering who the family was.  The other names from Cambridgeshire were familiar to him.

He's going to go through them all in due course.  With such a large tree, he always has people sending him more information each month, I don't know how he finds the time to sort it all out.

From my end, I'm going to see if I can do more research on my Halesworth Colletts to see if I can come up with Charles Thomas son of Robert.  I'm sure there must be a connection.

Robt. & Mary Collet (miller) had son, Chas. Thos. Collett                1815/06/02

So far, Brian Collett has found that  Charles Thomas Collett was baptised on 2 June 1815 and sadly died 9 days later.  So any Charles who were Millers were not Charles Thomas Collett.  He's also found details of other Halesworth Colletts that are not so far on his database.  Hopefully, he will eventually be able to sort out information on Robert Collett and the other Halesworth Colletts who were millers.

I'm hoping he can link them into my branch of Colletts.

Hi Lizzie,

Glad to help with the Colletts.  I'll continue with my search of millers and if any thing turns up re: the family I'll pass it on to you.
