1. Jonathan* Gillet, the progenitor of this branch of the family, be- 
longed, with his brother Nathan, to the company of about one hundred and 
forty Puritans, which was formed in the counties of Devonshire, Dorset- 
shire and Somersetshire, England; sailed, with Rev's John Warham and 
John Maverick as pastors, in the Mary and John, March 20, 1630, and 
arrived off Nantasket, May 30th following, settlement being made at Dor- 
chester. He was made a freeman there May 6, 1635. There was " graunted 
to Jonathan Gellet : to fence in halfe an acre of ground about his house 
leaving a sufficient highway." Further " . . . . the foresayd p'tyes do p'mise 
to fetch all the Cowes from Jonathan Gillets house to Mr. Woolcotts . . ." ; 
" graunted . . . also to Jonathan Gillet 4 acres" (" over against fox poynt ") ; 
" the bounds being from Jonathan Gillets pale &c." ; and " one [lot] the 
other side, which was once Jonathan Gilletes." 

With the Dorchester Church and Rev. Mr. Warham, he and Nathan re- 
moved about 1636 to Windsor, Coan., where he "had a lot granted to him
