The latest request comes from Christopher Mulliss who writes, "I am researching the Mulliss family and I believe there may be members of the family living in an approximate post code area covering the village. I used to live in Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire and so know the area quite well, although now live in Somerset.
A second request has come from Annie Brand (nee Burton) who writes, "I am researching my family history and wonder if you can help me. My great-grandparents William Burton and Ann Burton (nee Preston) had a Grocer's & Draper's shop in Sawtry as seen on the censuses for 1841 to 1911. William and their son John and daughter Mary were also Registrars. My first query is about their address(es) in Sawtry - variously given as High Street, Back Street and what looks like "Burtons Jetty" (although this has sometimes been transcribed as "Burlons Jessy" ! Was there a street or lane called "Burtons Jetty"?
