406. Joseph1 Peck;269 baptized 30 Apr 1587 at Beccles, Suffolk, Eng;269 died 23 Dec 1663 at Rehoboth, MA, at age 76.269
He JOSEPH PECK, the emigrant ancestor of the Pecks in this country, known as the Massachusetts Pecks, now a numerous and extensive race scattered throughout the United States, its Territories, the British Provinces, and the Canadas, was baptized in Beccles, Suffolk County, England, April 30, 1587.
He was the son of Robert Peck, as will be seen by a reference to the chart, being a descendant in the twenty-first generation from John Peck, of Belton, Yorkshire. He settled at Hingham, Norfolk County, England. In 1638, he and other puritans, with his brother Robert Peck, their pastor, fled from the persecutions of the church to this country. They came over in the ship Diligent of Ipswich, John Martin, master.
Daniel Cushing, then town clerk here at Hingham, Norfolk County, New England, in speaking of his arrival in this country says: "Mr. Joseph Peck and his wife with three sons and daughter and two men servants, and three maid servants, came from Old Hingham, and settled at New Hingham." His children were as follows:
Anna, baptized in Hingham, England, March 12, 1617-18 and buried there, July 27, 1636. Rebecca, baptized in Hingham, England, May 25, 1620; and, as appears by her father's will, married a Upon early records, births and deaths are not often given. They were generally kept by Parish clerks, who only gave the baptisms and burials. Hubbert. Joseph, baptized in Hingham, England, August 23, 1623. For the history of him and his descendants, see Part I. John, baptized about 1626. For a history of him and his descendants, see Part II. Nicholas baptized in Hingham, England, April 9, 1630. For his history, see Part III. Samuel, baptized here at Hingham, in New England, February 3, 1638-9, see Part IV. Nathaniel, baptized here at Hingham, New England, October 31, 1641, Part V. Israel, baptized here, March 4, 1644, Part VI.
He was twice married. His first wife was Rebecca Clark. They were married at Hingham, England, May 21, 1617. She died and was buried there, October 24, 1637. The name of his second wife, and the baptism of his son John, was not found. It was not upon the records at Hingham, where his first marriage and the baptisms of his other children were recorded. It probably took place in another parish where the records were not preserved.
He seems to have belonged to that class in England known as gentlemen or the gentry entitled to coat-armor, etc., who ranked next to Baronets.
Soon after his arrival here, he settled in Hingham, Mass. The records there in 1638 say:
Mr. Joseph Peck received a grant of seven acres of land, for a house lot, next to Robert Peck his brother; he also received other grants of land.
He remained at Hingham about seven years, when he removed to Seekonk.
While he remained at Hingham, he was one of its leading men. He was Representative, or deputy to the General Court in 1639, 1640, 1641 and 1642. He took an active interest in the business of the town. He was one of the selectmen, justice of the peace, assessor, etc.
He was appointed by the court to grant summons and attachments, to see people joined in marriage, to keep the records, etc.
In 1641, he became one of the principal purchasers of the indians of that tract of land called by them Seacunk or Seeckonk, afterwards incorporated into a town since known as Rehoboth, Mass., at first called eight miles square, but afterwards found to be about ten. It comprised what is now Rehoboth, Seekonk, and Pawtucket. He did not however remove there until 1645.
Upon the Rehoboth records is the following notice of an accident which befel him on his removal thither:
"Another strange accident happened by fire about this time. Mr. Joseph Peck, and three others of Hingham, being about to remove to Seaconk, (which was concluded by the Commissioners of the United colonies to belong to Plymouth,) riding thither they sheltered themselves and their horses in an indian wigwam, which by some occasion took fire, and (although there were four in it, and labored to their utmost) burnt three of their horses to death, and all their goods, to the value of fifty pounds."
After his removal to Seekonk, his name continually appears upon the records of the town, in the management of its affairs, until his age precluded him from such duties.
His name also appears upon the Plymouth Colonial records, as it did upon those of Massachusetts.
He was appointed to assist in matters of controversy at court. In 1650, the court appointed him to administer marriage. In 1651, he was appointed to determine all controversies, not exceeding a certain amount. He was also appointed to administer oaths, issue warrants, etc.
He seems to have been one of the principal men here, as he had been at Hingham, as well as one of the wealthiest.
In the purchase of the town as in the appraisal of the purchaser's rights for the apportionment of a tax, there was but one who paid more or whose rights were prized more than his.
In addition to his interest in the first purchase of the town, he afterwards bought other rights which made him a large owner.
His rights in the common undivided lands at his decease were given to his sons, as well as those which had then been divided. In some instances, these lands still remain in the name and are owned and occupied by his descendants. The Pecks of Barrington (Ellis, Asa and others) now occupy lands given to his youngest sons, Nathaniel and Israel.
The proprietors of Rehoboth first settled upon what has since been known as Seekonk Plain, a tract of cleared land which had been the planting grounds of the indians. The settlers appropriated it to the same purpose until its fertility became exhausted, when they were obliged to leave the plain and seek the smaller openings which were more productive, thus gradually penetrating the wilderness, and extending the settlements of their town.
The house of Joseph, which seems to have been of the better class, stood upon the plain in the northerly part of the "Ring of Bliss, in his history of Rehoboth, supposes this word to be composed of the indian words seaki, meaning black, and honk, goose--black goose being the indian name for the wild goose, and thinks the place received its name from the fact of great numbers of wild geese in their s??ui-annual migrations, alighting here in the river and cove adjacent.
It was here that he lived, and died December 23, 1663, in the seventy-seventh year of his age, far from the tombs of his fathers, the associations of his youth, and the scenes of his early life, but doubtless happy in the thought of having been able to worship God after the dictates of his own conscience, and of being surrounded by his children, in whose care his remains would be left to be buried where they would be surrounded by those of his descendants.
No stones, now more than two hundred years since, mark the spot of their interment, but the subsequent graves of his descendants indicate the place. "269 He "(I) Joseph Peck, baptized in Beccles, Suffolk county, England, April 30, 1587, was the son of Robert Peck, and a descendant from John Peck, of Belton, Yorkshire, in the twenty-first generation. He died at Seekonk Plain, Massachusetts, December 23, 1663. Before emigrating he settled at Hingham, Norfolk county, England, but in 1638 he and his brother Robert, with other Puritans, fled from persecution, and sailed for the New World in the ship "Diligence" of Ipswich. Coming with his wife. three sons, a daughter, two men servants, and three maid servants, he settled in Hingham, Massachusetts. After seven years he removed to Seekonk, having been one of the leading men of the former town. Joseph Peck was deputy to the general court in 1639-40-41-42. He was one of the chief purchasers of the Indians in 1641, buying territory at Seekonk, which has since been made into the town of Rehoboth, Massachusetts, which comprises what are now known as Rehoboth, Seekonk and Pawtucket.
After his removal to Seekonk in 1645 he became one of its wealthiest and most progressive citizens. He married (first) in England, Rebecca Clark, who died in Hingham, England. October, 1637, Mr. Peck married again. but the second wife's name is not known. Children, by first wife. all baptized in Hingham. England: Anna, baptized July 27, 1616; Rebecca, May 25, 1620; Joseph (2), of whom further; John, about 1626; Nicholas, April 9, 1630. Children by second wife: Samuel, baptized in Hingham, Massachusetts, February 3, 1638-39; Nathaniel, October 31, 1641;
and Israel, March 4, 1644. "69 He "JOSEPH PECK came from Old Hingham in 1638 with 132 other Puritans and his brother Robert Peck, their pastor, in the "Diligent" (John Martin, Master) bringing his second wife, two sons, one dau., two men servants and three maid servants and settled in New Hingham. He was the son of Robert Peck and Helen Babbs of Beccles, Suffolk Co., Eng., where he was baptized Apl. 30, 1587. He was a descendant in the 21st generation of John Peck of Belton, Yorkshire. His first wife, Rebecca Clark, whom he married May 21, 1617, died Oct. 24, 1637. The name of his second wife is not known. He was made freeman March 13, 1638-9, and was chosen representative to the General Court in 1639, 40, 41 and 42.
In 1641 he was one of the purchasers of Seaconk from Massasoit, and Gov. Bradford granted the same land, eight miles square, which was incorporated as Rehoboth. He removed there in 1645, losing three horses and goods of oe50 value by the burning of an Indian wigwam where he stopped for shelter on the journey. He was Selectman, Assessor and Justice of the Peace. He was rated the same as Stephen Paine, oe535, only one being larger.
"Plymouth, July 3, 1656. The Court have appointed and deputed Mr. Joseph Pecke to administer marriage at Rehoboth: and the said Mr. Pecke, Mr. Stephen Paine and Richard Bowen are appointed and authorized to hear and determine all controversies there between any, so as it amount not to above the value of three pounds."
He died Dec. 23, 1663, aged 77 years. His will divided a large property among his children, Joseph, John, Nicholas, Samuel, Nathaniel and Israel and dau. Hubbert. "I do ordain my son Nicholas and my son Samuel the executors of this my last will, desiring the Lord to guide theire hartes to do all according unto my intent heer sett down." His six sons signed an agreement for distribution of the estate according to the will as amplified by their father upon his death bed, but not expressed in the writing, with Stephen Paine, Thomas Cooper and John Reed as witnesses.
