John Bradshaw born 1827 operated the mill possibly under lease from Thomas. He advertised the mill lease for sale in the papers of 1857, advising that the Lease had 3 years and 4 months remaining.
He disposed of the mill in 1881.
There is an extensive amount of information in this website, and it is laid out in similar fashion to a book. However in some cases it is only a sample of extensive research into the different branches of the Jillett Family in Australia.
Further information can be found online at Trove and Linc.
A complete series of ebooks about all the different family members has been written and is free to download.
The stories are also on the web blog at jillettfamilyancestors.blogspot.com
Or for their time on Norfolk Island bradshawnorfolk.blogspot.com
For the family, we also have a Facebook page Jillettfamily.
In November 2018, we will be holding a Jillett Family Reunion, between 5th and 7th November.

Each of the Chapters follows the lives of different people, and events. It also follows a chronological timeline. It is a compilation of the extensive research carried out by many people over many years. Sadly many have now passed, but their research carried on.
A great deal of research has come from the newspaper archives from 1803, and the stories contained there-in. There are over 10,000 entries relating to the Jillett name in those archives alone. The archives of the State Government have also been extensively searched, resulting in some very early photos. There are links to many of the research sites included in the pages.
