[Is there also a Swanzey, NH or is somebody just taking a shot without looking. Swanzey, Bristol, MA is on the border with RI, south of Rehoboth and on a more direct route to CT. However the move to Boston would make some sense. 7/25/97 no there is not a Swanzey in NH]

Ed,

1) When Gideon moved to Guilford, his brother Henry was already a resident. I've always assumed this was Gideon's connection and reason for settling in Guilford. If the Collins family was also there it is interesting, but not necessary if we're looking for some family connections to justify Gideon's move.

George ALLEN of Sandwich 1637

George Allen who departed Bridgewater, Somersetshire, England in 1636 is the first American link in the chain of Allens who extend over a period of almost 400 years and 15 generations. His is a remarkably well documented descent for an essentially middle-class American family. Among his descendants are Allens who settled on the island of Martha's Vineyard
and in town of Fairhaven, Massachusetts--the descendants of his grandson James, through Samuel, who comprise the heart of this record. They "have spread from Maine to California." George's other known sons and "least children," though less well documented, are interesting lines. Among his decedents and in-laws are five American Presidents; Grant, F.D.R.,
Nixon, Ford and Bush, as well as British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
