We believe that the earliest the name of Millett occurs is in 1419 when John Millett came to England from France as Ambassador and was a Privy Councillor in 1435. This is quite possibly an Anglicised spelling of the name. In another record it states: “John Mylet came to England in 1432 as an ambassador from John of Lancaster, First Duke of Bedford (1389-1435), son of King Henry IV and Regent of France for his nephew King Henry VI, who was technically also heir to the throne of France.  It was agreed that 40 marks should be paid to the ambassador from the Duke of Bedford.  See Proceedings and Ordinances of the Privy Council of England.”
