I am looking for ancestors who lived in Oswestry mainly between around 1780 and 1850. Their name was MINETT (MINNITT, MYNETT and similar). The first to arrive in Oswestry was Thomas MINETT who was born in Worcestershire around 1755. He married Mary GRIFFITHS in 1782 and had five children. He was a miller and owner of Sun Inn in Church Street and later the mill in Morda (registered as burgeress 1795). In particular I am interested in any information of where he came from in Worcestershire and/or anything regarding his Huguenot connection i.e. if there are other known Huguenots living in the area at this time and if so why they moved there.

Hi, I wonder if your Thomas Minett is connected to my ancestors, MINETT from Gloucestershire.
I have traced my family line back to Gloucestershire where a lot of MINETT are congregated around the Toddington, Gotherington and Bishops Cleeve area.
