Barbara; Your inquiry was forwarded to me as library archivist. I consulted our copy of History of Hampton, N.H. 1638-1892 by Joseph Dow. Its only reference to Peavey/Peavy is on page 907:
"Peter Peavey and Esther his wife had children: Hannah, b. July 14, 1721. Mary, b. Mar. 22, 1723. Rachel, bp. May 23, 1725. Esther, bp. June 2, 1728"
Our copy of Vital Records of Hampton, N.H. vol.2 confirms the above, with additional detail that they were records of the First Congregational Church, and on page 23; "Peter Pevy, bp. 19 April, 1719."
I hope this is of help to you.
Sincerely, Janice Zwicker
