Re: [Peterhead] Fuillet surname
- Hi Jayston
Welcome to the group.
FUILLET isn't in my books of Surnames. I would
suggest you have a look at the original film. It may
be a mis-transcription by one of the 10,000 LDS
volunteers. FULLER looks like a possible alternative.
[Neither is in our tree though, sorry.]
Unfortunately, FULLER isn't in the FreeCEN 1841
Census either, and Soundex doesn't find any useful
If it is actually FUILLET, then French is a fair guess.
Google & Yahoo each get 500-600 hits and most of
the primary ones are French surnames.
There are few rules for the Lists, but there are some
conventions. Surnames in capitals is a good principle
although some Listers seem to think it a waste of their
typing time. I personally think it helps recipients spot
"their" surnames which is the whole point of the Lists.
