Re: Alfred Gallett from Scotland/UK Gallet(t)
It's good to read your message - it's been a little quiet on this forum! I only have a little on this family. They crossed the Atlantic frequently, I'm guessing because James & Francis were pro-golfers? - I haven't listed all of these crossings.
The information I have is that there were Gallet(t)s in three areas of England in the 1570s, and around the Hanley Castle area from 1735. From the mid 1900s they moved out to the growing industrial areas including Aston and Birmingham. I don't yet know where Alfred Stanley b.abt 1863 fits in, but I will be happy to share information with you,
