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.

Thomas and Constance Gee

1637 Joyce

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
