Useful Links for 'Hunnisett' Research
If you know of other on-line resources where 'Hunnisett' ancestors can be found, please
and I will add them to the list.
Some of the indexes require exact surname spelling but, as always, it may not have been recorded accurately so try alternatives.
This is a service run by The National Archives for accessing their collections, either on-line or at Kew. Amongst other things they have an index to PCC Wills, images of which can be downloaded for a modest fee. I have found 5 'Hunnisett' wills there: Constance Honnisett of Newenden, Kent, [also her late husband William], Richard Honeysett, mariner, 1802; Ann Honeysett of Sandhurst, Kent, 1816; Henry Honeysett of Linton, Kent, 1820 [the previous Ann's son]; and Ann Honisett of Southampton, 1855. There is also an excellent series of research guides on-line.
Census records for England & Wales
An excellent service only marred by some appalling transcriptions! I have found a few very odd spellings of the surname. To catch most variations try Hon*s*t* or Hun*s*t* but there are a few starting Han and Hen plus Hunnicett, Hunnwell, Hunnesell, Honeycott and Heneyuth. Some of the placenames also give rise to uncontrollable laughter so put in as little extra info as you can get away with here and don't rely on the county name either as that is not always given. Having said all that, the images of the census pages are usually very good. Available via Ancestry.co.uk and FindMyPast.com
This site lists memorials to servicemen, mainly from the two world wars, and gives their name, rank, number, regiment, date of death and location of memorial. In many cases family information is also given e.g. parents or wife.
This index covers NSW births from 1788 to 1920, marriages to 1970 & deaths to 1990 (as at 2020). Many of the entries refer to descendants of Thomas and Elizabeth Honeysett who emigrated from Burwash, Sussex in 1839.
In case you haven't already found it, this must be the largest on-line genealogical index in the world and contains thousands of 'Hunnisett' entries from parish registers and other sources from all over the world.
