Hi Guys

Thanks for your help. I am not sure there is a connection to me but someone has contacted me and suggested that one of my ancestors, an Elizabeth Pallett, had an affair with a man named Douse. They had children but were never married. All my Palletts from this period were based in Cadeby, Leics. I have found the Douse name in Cadeby also but have not been able to make a connection. See my dilemma? :-S

... Sorry, Catherine Pallett, not Elizabeth

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 2 May 2013 20:36

Darren, if you look at my post above there was a Mary Douse had illegitimate children by John Pallet. This would fit with her children having her surname and their father's surname as a middle name.

The parish of Mancetter where the children were baptised is about 25 miles from Walsall.

Hi MarieCeleste.
I do have an unaccounted for John Pallett, who would be the right age. And Mancetter is not all that far away from Cadeby.
