'Mol' Variations by Region

For a listing of the counties contained in each region see Geographic Regions on the main 1851 census page.

The three largest population centres for ‘Mollett’ variants in 1851 were the Channel Islands, Northern Counties (Yorkshire) and East Anglia (Norfolk). Each of these areas has an historical presence of the Malet surname, so Mollett may be a valid variant of Mallett.

As with all of the other surname variants, the South East region, heavily influenced by Greater London, is well represented by Molletts, but for reasons stated elsewhere, this region should not be considered to be an ancestral base for the name.
