I have a Esther Guery/Geary who lived in Wednesbury until her death in 1877. I think her husband was John Geary etc who died in 1852. This Guery family may have came from Ireland and been French Huguenot originally. A Pierre Guerry fled fom France to Ireland to South Carolina in the USA. In his 1885 book "History of the Huguenot Emigration to America" Charles Washington Baird quoted " Pierre Guerri, fils de Jacques et d'Anne Guerri, de Seuvet et Poitou ; et Jeanne sa femme, fille de Louis et de Judith Broussard, du dit lieu. Enfans, Francois, ne a Dublin, Jean, Pierre, Jean Jacques, Jeanne Elizabeth, nez en Caroline." (Liste de Francois et Suisses refugiez en Caroline, etc.) Baird also mentioned "The widow Guerry, with her two sons, her son-in-law, and two small children. Year of departure, 1681. Place of retreat, Baston. Property left, none." So this could have been Pierre and a brother who left France in 1681. If it is the brother stayed behind in Ireland. Does anybody know ?
