Some Descendants of Sir John PECKHAM

First Generation

1. Sir John PECKHAM was born 1595 in England and was christened 8 Apr 1595 in Boxgrove, West Sussex, England. He died after 6 Jan 1681 in Newport, Newport Co., Rhode Island.

LITTLE COMPTON FAMILIES, pub. by Little Compton Historical Society from Records compiled by Benjamin Franklin Wilbour, 1967.
    "John Peckham no doubt came to Boston with Sir Henry Van in 1634 and he probably met there Mary Clarke who accompanied her brother John Clarke to Boston about the time. The acquaintance resulted in marriage of which no record can be found. He probably was one of the party called the Ann Hutchinson party, who founded a settlement on the north end of Rhode Island, which became the town of Portsmouth. In 1640 the bounds of his land were established."
    On 20 May 1638 his name appeared on the list as one of those admitted as an inhabitant of Portsmouth. He became a freeman in 1641. In 1648 his second wife Eleanor was baptised.
    His residence was in that part of Newport which is now Middletown, and a stone marker J. P. is supposed to mark his grave.
