Some Background

It is said by some genealogists (including Jacobus, in a passing reference) that Hannah Gore (who married Stephen Gifford), Elizabeth Gore (who married John Gager), and Mary Gore (no spouse named), were sisters, the daughters of Samuel Gore and Elizabeth Hill of Rotherhithe, London... all were born in England and the daughters subsequently emigrated to New England.
However, mitigating against this theory is that Samuel's and Elizabeth's marriage is known to have been in 1627, and the birthdate of their known daughter Elizabeth was also about this year - she married Gager c.1645; their known daughter Mary was born about 1631-1634.
Hannah married Stephen Gifford in 1667 when, according to this theory, she would have been about 40 years old; or, if she was of a more typical marriage age for the era (say, 20) when she married Stephen, she would have to have been born about 20 years after Samuel's and Elizabeth's marriage and the birth of their daughter Elizabeth, and 12 to 15 years after Mary's birth as well... all possibilities, but also very highly unlikely.
So, while the names and locations of the individuals involved could work, the dates don't support the theory.5,6
