From Velton Peabody (PEABODY@LOCALNET.COM): JOHN PEABODY1 was born about 1590 in St. Albans, Hertford Co., England. He probably came to the Plymouth Colony in 1635 or 1636, for his name appears on the list of freemen of the colony dated March 7, 1636/37, and he was admitted and sworn with others whose names were on that list on Jan. 2, 1637/8. He married Isabel Harper, sister of Thomas Harper of London, England. John Peabody received a grant of 10 acres of land Jan. 1, 1637/8, "on Duxburrow side, lying betwixt the lands of William Tubs on the north side and those of Experience Mitchell on the south side, and from the sea in the west; and from Blew Fish River in the easte." Another tract, granted him Nov. 2, 1640, was 30 acres "with meadow to it" at North River. He was a member of the jury that convicted three young Englishmen of the murder of an Indian on Sept. 4, 1638, and of the "Grand Inquest" at the court June 4, 1639. He was one of the sureties on a neighbor's bond June 4, 1645.
In 1645, John Peabody and his son, William, were among the original proprietors of Bridgewater, Mass. He was a witness with Thomas Winterton against Edward Richards when he was tried in court at Salem 4:9:1645, on a charge of making a false statement to them concerning shipboard killings. Richards was convicted and fined 10 shillings and ordered to acknowledge his sin before the congregation at Lynn.
John's will, dated July 16, 1649, at Duxbury, was proved Apr. 27, 1666/7 at Boston:
