"There is the old adage that you don't know where you are going until you know where you have been. In The Naylors of Woodborough, the authors have traced the journey of their immigrant ancestor, George Nailor, from Yorkshire, England to colonial Maryland where he established his first farm, Woodborough. Subsequent generations built upon George's legacy establishing farms and businesses in Maryland and across America. The Naylor story follows several themes common to the settling and development of the United States--immigration, upward mobility, westward expansion, connectoin to the land, and community and military service. This volume presents not only extensive genealogical information about various branches of the family but also casts that information in a larger historical context. The authors have painstakingly rsearched official records and original documents in the United States and United Kingdom, compiled oral family histories, and related personal ancedotes to share interesting stories about this particluar family and their American experience."
