Commoners & BLG1862, which follow the line of Peter Elers, report that Peter "of the ancient baronial family of that name, migrated from Germany and came over to this country at the time when George I. was called to the throne", which was in 1714. Noting that date and that Peter is reported to have had just 1 son (another Peter), we speculate that the undermentioned Paul of Black Bourton was his nephew.
