THE MINOR-MINER FAMILIES - FOURTH GENERATION

Thomas Minor (1608 - 1690) emigrated from Chew Magna, England to New England where he has become the progenitor of many descendants. A basic reference for this Minor/Miner family ancestry is "Thomas Minor, Descendants, 1608 - 1981" by John Augustus Miner (1981). Many of those surnamed Minor or Miner living in the United States are descendants of this Thomas of Chew Magna, England. There is a Society for these descendants and Family Tree Maker has Minor and Miner family Forums.

This page is a tabulation of the fourth generation of the Thomas Minor family. The fourth generation has been subdivided into four branches based on primary residence of the parents in either Woodbury, New London, Lyme, or Stonington, CT. CT Town Map

FOURTH GENERATION

Thomas Miner had over 229 great grandchildren.

The Parkhurst Manuscript (c.1935) at the New London CT Public Library describes many of the New London and Lyme families. Numbering system taken from "Thomas Minor, Descendants, 1608 - 1981" by John A Minor (1981) which continues many of the lines for several generations.
