View of Chinley Independent Chapel. Are there GEES buried in this graveyard?    


And so concludes this statistical chapter recording the marriages, births and deaths, as I have found them.  Since it is very difficult to scroll through numbers, I know that there are transposition errors in some of the entries.   I am also sure that I have missed some data.

I have connected the “dots” so to speak, with about 50 of the very old entries which form the “backbone” of this incomplete history of the Gees of Derbyshire.

In the following pages, I have recorded mainly the main trunk of the tree – not the saplings.  And so doing, there will be many more GEEs who are not mentioned.  Some of these emigrated to Australia, some to Canada and the United States, others served in the British army in India.

The Gees arrived on the shores of America (which was called the plantations) fairly early.  I found an early reference to a John GEE who was an indentured servant.  He was listed as deceased in the Virginia census of 1624.   Where he came from or if he left children was unknown.

1825 John GEE of Glossop was convicted of theft of a tin can, silk handkerchief, 2 pair shoes, pair stockings belonging to Sarah Warhurst, was sentenced to seven years  and  was shipped “beyond the sea”.   After 1772, which meant all went to Australia – America was no longer an option (Not that the convicts had any say in the matter).

1832 James GEE of Whittington was convicted of theft of 11 yards of cotton, 1 apron, 25 handkerchiefs, and 1 shawl belonging to Elizabeth Whitehead.  He too was shipped beyond the sea.  I have found one reference to a “James Gee of Derbyshire who arrived in Australia as a convict and who later became a blacksmith.”  Whether this is the same James is unknown, however, this James started an entire GEE line in Australia, about which a book has been written.  The book is entitled “A Long Way From Silver Creek” by Margaret GEE. 

Unlike the convicts transported to Botany Bay, Australia who were forced to work in a penal colony, convicts to America were sold as servants to planters (private individuals) who looked for particular skills that would suit them for workers on their plantations.  This record tells the tale: “on the 24th September 1656, one servant of the said Captain Mitchell, named John GEE, was sold by Will Johnson (who was an agent for Captain Mitchell) unto the said Tames Langworth…..he was not to put of the servant for any longer time than one year…”   It would appear that this John GEE came across as a convict.
