Summary " ... Little is known about Jonathan Geere, the immediate ancestor of the family in England ... Jonathan was born about 1580, and died prior to 1635, soon after the death of his wife. He left two young sons, George and Thomas, under the guardianship of an uncle. ... At an early age, their uncle, in order to obtain possession of their property, arranged to ship the two boys to America. ... [They] arrived in Boston in 1635 ... The first reliable record we find of them is that George was one of the early settlers of New London about 1651 and Thomas of Enfield in 1682."--P.6-8.
