The Lillie Surname Project
In Quinlan's 1882 book The History Of Sullivan County, New York it records that two brothers, Jeremiah & Jonathan LILLIE came to the area of the Delaware River, between Sullivan Co., NY & Wayne Co., PA in the late 1700s. We have traced several families with variation of this surname from that area, but cannot find written proof of their common ancestor. This project is being being done to PROVE the family ties to the lines of Jonathan, Jeremiah, Albert, Almon & Aaron Lillie/ Lilly. We have found that our lines match those of the descendants of George Lillie of Reading, MA who came to the New World from England in the mid 1630. As of yet, we do not have the linage to prove how we connect.
