Follett family of Dorset

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Peter's message to me - WCC is Whitchurch Canicorum

I have Thomas Follett 1714-1772 & Ann Hodder. They are my
5x Gt Grandparents and son of Thomas Follett 1688-1755.
They are in my Family Bible,unfortunately I cannot find Thomas 1688
Birth date or parents.
I came across Roger Follett who married a Mary Hunt in WCC, dorset
in 1606. As WCC is a pretty small place I thought it likely that they were
in some way related as all the rest of the Folletts from WCC are.
I understand that once you get that far back records become a bit iffy!

How did you work back to these people without having found their descendants?

Have you tried looking for info?

Peter appears to be the only person who has Roger Follett in his tree, only he gives a birth date of 1585.
How did you get back to him?


brummiejan Report 17 Feb 2013 14:19

Peter, it's not quite clear whether you are trying to find out if this couple had children, or that you wish to contact other members connected to the family
Just a suggestion - alter your posting to clarify (use 'edit').
You might also check if there are matches with other members by using 'search all trees', found in search box above.

Looking for descendants of Roger Follettc1580 & Mary Hunt married Whitchurch Canonicorum, dorset in 1605.
Believed to be relative of Thomas Follett 1688-1755 also of Whitchurch Canonicorum. Thomas follett 1688-1755 was my 6x gt grandfather.
I am looking to find if Roger Follett & mary Hunt had any children as this may
lead me to the parents of Thomas Follett 1688.
