Re: GEORGE, THOMAS 1635
I am descended from George Geer and Sarah Allyn. A book titled "Swamp Yankee from Mystic" by James H. Allyn (© 1980) has a paragraph on George Geer: "George Geer was born in Devonshire in 1621, and came to New London with Robert Allyn thirty years later. In 1656 he took up land east of Allyn in the area of Geer Hill. Two years later he married Allyn's daughter Sarah and they had eleven children. Geer lived to be 105." If the author is correct, then George Geer's emigration from England was around 1651 rather than 1635.
