    Would you be a descendant of John Perryn (1614-1674) an early settler of Rehoboth, Massachusetts?

    My mother's maiden surname was Gist. On that line we are descended from Nathaniel Gist, my 5th great grandfather, who was born about 1707 in Baltimore. He and his older brother Christopher (b. about 1705) were fairly famous frontier scouts.

    Well, anyway, to cut to the chase, I stumbled on the YouTube video below. I don't play video games, but I think this is kind of cool.

    If Wikipedia is correct Sequoyah, the famous Cherokee is supposed to be a distant cousin for you via your ancestor's nephew. Is a story known in your family.

    Recent Ancestry, full Normand. Known Genealogy 7/8 of the Cotentin peninsula 1/8 region of Coutances. Unfortunately, there are many missing branches on the maternal side.

    Yes, but I'm not sure that's really true. Interesting story, though.

    Really interesting, the kind of story we like to find when we make our family tree, but unfortunately not always easy to prove ... except sometimes thanks to a genetics test !!!

    Yes, it looks that way. I had to check my tree because I really didn't put much effort into that section. That whole sub-tree of mine depends on who my Cynthia A. Lee, 1816-1856, descended from. She is my direct maternal line ancestor. There doesn't seem to be a birth record for her. And other related trees don't have her in theirs. But circumstantial evidence and various DNA matches seem to verify my version.

    Yes, I have John Perrin, 1614-1674, born in England and died in Rehoboth, Bristol County, MA. I have his wife as Anna Mary Hulbert, 1616 Gravesend, Kent, England to 1688 in Rehobooth. Their daughter Mary Elizabeth Perrin, (I can't read my scribbling for town), Norfolk County, MA; died 1730 Gloucester County, Virginia. She married Capt. Thomas Graves, 1631-1710, of Virginia. I copied that info from Ancestry trees.

    Interesting. I come from John Perin's son John (1643-1694) who was married to Mary Polley. Our branch of the family spelled the name with one "r."

    Yes, I see that. I just added your John Jr., and Ancestry says he is my 9th Great uncle. I put his surname as two spellings, Perrin and Perin. I also see other variations out there. Ancestry threw up a different set of trees for display than originally. But I can still do a deeper search with a little effort, and see a longer list of trees. This new batch of trees shows the wife of John Sr. as being born in 1616 in Massachusetts. I mean, the Pilgrims didn't arrive until 1620!

    There is a town or etc. between Miami and Homestead, Florida named Perrine. I wonder if that is somehow connected to the Perrin/Perryn clan.

    Perrine, Florida seems to have been named for Henry Perrine, a descendant of the French-born Daniel Perrin (1642-1719), "the Huguenot," who settled on Staten Island. Our Perins may have a connection back to France but it is several generations before Daniel Perrin.

    There is a community in Ohio called Perintown or Perin's Mills named for our family. My branch of the family lived there in the early 1800s.
