Although I have entered an interest in "All years", my real interest is pre-1837. Starting, with family living and moving around in Axbridge, Congersbury, Wrington and Axbridge. And working back towards a Christoper Avery before 1642. In an attempt to identify if he is an ancestor.
How, when Chrisopher Avery reached colonial America is not identifiable. It is thought that he was part of the John Wynthrop fleet, but records of the members of the group is not totally documented.
he was the start of the "Groton Avery Clan" of Groton, Connecticut, of which there are two family history books dated 1913. The Avery heritage is easily identified in Eastern United States. Across from Boston Common tourist office is "Avery Street". At the US Coast Guard, training base at University of Connecticut is "Avery Point.
In Groton, Connecticut is a National Monument Site for The Battle of Groton Heights where during the revolutionary war most of the defenders were "Avery's". Most were massacred by the troups, under the command of General Benedict Arnold who was making his first military engagement after his change of employers. My name is on the defenders memorial plaque at the entrance to the monument.
