My line of the Pollet family can be traced back to Lisbon in Portugal in the last half of the 18th century and before that to Poland. Two generations of the Pollet family worked as jewellers to the King and Queen of Portugal.

My 4x great grandmother Anne Pollet was born in Lisbon in 1779. In 1793 she was sent to England to be educated in Falmouth in Cornwall and in 1798 married John Haydon Cardew in Penryn (part of Falmouth) where he was clergyman. They had 15 children.
