ALTERNATIVE GENEALOGY

 

An alternative genealogy was advanced by Paul C. Reed and Leslie Mahler in The American Genealogist in April and October 2000:

 

“The identification of the immigrant Thomas Millett as son of Henry Millett of Chertsey –based solely on the facts that Henry had a son Humphrey in Southwark and a son named Thomas – is false.  The New England immigrant hailed from Newbury, having temporarily settled in a London suburb before leaving for America”.

 

Ancestry:

 

John Millett, born c. 1513, a prominent fishmonger of Newbury, Berkshire, died and was buried there on 19 August 1564.  He had four wives, and ten children by three of them.

 

William Millett (John’s second son, mother unknown), was born c. 1539 at Newbury, married Alice ?, and died c. 1587 at Newbury.  He and Alice had eleven children.  He was a mercer.

 

John Millett (William’s fifth child), baptised 10 April 1569 at Newbury, married Eleanor Pritchard on 2 July 1593 at Newbury.  His date and place of death are unknown.  He and Eleanor had four or possibly five children.

 

Thomas Millett (John’s youngest child), was baptised 24 October 1604 at Newbury, and died between 3 June 1675 (when he sold land) and 23 September 1676 (when the inventory of his estate was taken) at Brookfield, Mass.  He married on 1 May 1629 at St Saviour, Southwark, Surrey Mary Green(a)way, who was baptised at Mildenhall, Wiltshire on 5 November 1605.  She was a daughter of John and Mary Green(a)way of Dorchester, Mass., and died at Brookfield, Mass. before 26 September 1682 (division of her husband's estate).

 

Two sons were baptised at St Saviour:  John on 6 May 1630, and Thomas on 16 August 1632.  Their father's occupation is given as “a Tayler” in the St Saviour Church Registers.
