About Joseph Peck

JOSEPH PECK

 

Birth: Apr. 22, 1610 Norfolk, England Death: Feb. 26, 1701 Milford New Haven County Connecticut, USA

~MY ANCESTOR~ JOSEPH PECK was believed to have immigrated on the ship, HECTOR, with his brothers, WILLIAM PECK (also my ancestor), and Henry arriving in 1636. Their parents are unknown but may have been ROBERT & ANN (LAWRENCE) PECK who came from Beccles, Co. Suffolk, England but settled in Hingham, Norfolk, Eng. where Joseph was born. Joseph & William are found in New Haven records and it appears that Joseph went on to Milford while William stayed in New Haven. Joseph was an "after planter" which means that he came to Milford after the first division of land. He married ALICE (HEATH) BURWELL, widow of John Burwell, on Sept. 12, 1650 in Milford. They were parents of my ancestor, LIEUT. JOSEPH PECK, whose tombstone is in the Milford Cemetery.

Pictured right is the inscription of his name on the Founder's Bridge on the Wepawaug River in Milford.
