. Note - there is more than one Family Tree on this site - to see the others, go to "Family Tree" then "Manage Tree"
First is our Guiile-Gile-Guiles Family Tree, descendants of Samuel Guile of Haverhill.
Next is the GUILD Family Tree - John Guild was the older brother of our Samuel Guile, both came from England in 1636
The last is the Family Tree of Johann Christof Geil, who anglicized his last name to Gile, and whose descendants to this day are numerous, all using the surname Gile. The ancestors in Germany are also included, and where there are notes, they are also included. Those who do not find their Gile name in the main tree should check this one, or send a message to John Gile, the site manager.

In 1880, Charles Burleigh of Portland, Maine, was Secretary of the Maine Historical Society, and had recently completed his Genealogy of the Burleigh family. His grandmother was a Guile/Gile descendant, and he embarked on researching that line. In the process, he discovered the connection between the Guile and Guild lines, dating back to 1636 when two brothers, John and Samuel, arrived from England. By 1640, John had purchased property in Dedham, and Samuel was one of the 12 Founders of Haverhill.
Although both brothers were in early records using surnames GUILD and GUILE, apparently by about 1655 they seemed to have settled on John using GUILD and Samuel using GUILE. John's descendants have pretty consitently used Guild, which seems uniquely to have been pronounced with an hard "i", and rhymes with "child". Samuel's descendants have used variously Guile, Gile and Guiles, with a few other variations, all with an hard "i". There had been some limited genealogy published on the GUILD line, but nothing on the GUILE side, so Burleigh embarked on major research on both lines. In 1887, he published the Genealogy and History of the GUILD, GUILE, and GILE FAMILY, a hard-cover book of 380 pages - 24 pages of Introduction, 193 page on the Guild line, 102 pages on the Guile line, and 73 pages on Miscellaneous and Index.
In the 1980s, John Gile (1924 - ) began researching the Guile line, while Margaret (Guild) Lambert (1930 - ) began searching her ancestry. After John published his 960 page book - Genealogy of the GUILE, GILE and GUILES FAMILY - in 1997 on the Descendants of Samuel Guile of Haverhill, he then discovered Margaret hard at work and was able to assist and encourage her to complete her project which was published with 954 pages in 2006.
With this brief background, I now invite you to look at the separate web sites, to read what the authors have to say and to examine the records for your own ancestry. In both cases, the web sites show the work of Charles Burleigh, the previously published work. To learn about your personal ancestry, please contact the author directly - both are most willing to research and supply information.
