H*n*sett Family Research

I have been researching the history of all Hunnisett families, including all the known variants of the name. If you have any connection with the name anywhere in the world I would be very pleased to hear from you.

The site traces the origins of the name from the ironworks south-west of Namur in what is now Belgium, until the name first appeared in England early in the 16th century. From the time of Peter's marriage in Fletching in 1569, direct descendants can be traced to the present day. This site follows them to the beginning of the 19th century.

There is a section about some of the places where 'Hunnisett' families have lived over the past 500 years, lists and transcripts of wills, and a gallery of photographs sent to me by other researcher.

There are some tips on how and where to research and a section containing a miscellany of items about 'Hunnisett's.
