A Side Trip to Cornwall
To the west of Devon is Cornwall. Living in Cornwall were two family groups. John and Thomas were living near Plymouth. They may have been related to the Devin family.
Landulph (Near Calstock and Plymouth)
Johis and Johne Gee
1566 Petrus (Peter)
1569 Agneta (Agnes)
Calstock (5 miles from Plymouth)
Padstow (On the North Sea and Padstow Harbor)
Richard and Hellen Gee
1623 Humfrey d. 1623
Charles Gee married Marie Daw in 1632 St. Minver
Thomas and Constance Gee
The substantial group living on the North Sea at Padstow Harbor seems to use names common in Manchester during the same time. The heads of household would appear to be Richard, probably the father, and sons Thomas and Charles. In the Archives are these references:
1601, John Gee, yeoman, meaning he was a small prosperous farmer who owned his land.
1638 regarding a lease entered into by John Gee, deceased and Gideon Gee, deceased, noting sons living to be Charles Gee and William Gee, and their sons, John and William. The lease seems to be in regards to a mill at Trewhitson.
1638 Humfrey Gee, yeoman
