do you know the father of Henry Petyt you have listed?.b.1575.there was a gilbert petyt related to otes pettit.He came over with Willaim the Conqueror and was given the land in cornwall near Falmouth bay. I believe Gilbert's father John spelled his name "pettit".John was a descendent of otes.maybe their all connected?Do you know if your descendents were Huegnots?They arrived circa 1572.thank you.
