Jonathan Gillett

Birth: Aug. 11, 1609
South Somerset District
Somerset, England
Death: Aug. 23, 1677
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA

Born by about 1609 (based on presumed age at marriage), son of Rev. William Gillett. Came from Chaffcombe, Somersetshire to Massachusetts Bay in 1633. First settled in Dorchester; moved to Windsor in 1638. Died in Windsor, 23 August 1677 (from inventory).
Married in Colyton, Devonshire, 29 March 1634 Mary Dolbiar, bp. Colyton, Devonshire, 7 June 1607. She died Windsor 5 January 1685[/6].
Ever since the publication of the will of Rev. William Gillett, Rector of Chaffcombe, Somersetshire, Jonathan and Nathan Gillett of Dorchester and Windsor have been considered his sons, although there have been some nagging doubts. In 1979 George E. McCracken published additional information which makes the identification solid. McCracken suggested that Jonathan, Nathan and some of their siblings were born before 1610, when William Gillett was instituted at Chaffcombe; but we only have scattered Bishops' Transcripts for some of the years after 1610, and there is a ten-year gap when several Gillett children could have been born. Jonathan was probably older than Elias, who was baptized on 11 February 1611/2 and so could well have been born at an earlier residence for the family. Nathan, however, need not have been born until 1613, and he could have been born at Chaffcombe, next after Elias, during a period when neither the parish register nor the Bishops' Transcripts survive for that parish.
