You have a set in an original box so this would make them more valuable but individual thimbles are selling for $5 to $10 on eBay right now. There are over 16,000 collectable thimbles on eBay right now (not very many St George) and I did not see a set but did not check other sites.
The additional information would be nice to put in a listing if you were going to place them up for sale on an auction site but it seems this company made several different sets and they are all about the same value. I believe the value is actually less than a year ago.
Here is a listing in the UK (which is about the same as the US but more popular in the UK) for $19.99 and has several more thimbles. This may not sell either.
Just for information - it seems your names are showing 8 names/dates but your box only has 7 showing.
A set of 8 sells for $38 on Ruby Lane. You have a set of 6. https://www.rub -Georgex27s-Bone
From information I have gathered the sets have 7 thimbles (same as yours) but there appear to be different sets covering different years (different pictures on thimbles).
