What is the best source of migration records from England to Prince Georges County in the late 17th and early 18th centuries? George Alder was living in Piscataway as early as 1721, but don't know for sure if he was an immigrant. Was Piscataway Creek (tributary off the Potomac) a major point of disembarkment from England, or were immigrants more likely to arrive in other counties first, such as Charles and St. Mary's counties?
