About Peter Lurvey

From Gloucester's Deserted Village

Some distance to the northwest of Neil's place was the house of Peter Lurvey, the hero of Hiram Rich's poem, beginning

"Morgan Stanwoocl, patriot: Little more is known; Nothing of his home is left But the door-step stone."

His father, Peter Lurvey, removed from Ipswich to Gloucester in 1707, and married Rachel Elwell three years later. John Morgan Stanwood was Peter's son-in-law, and tradition was thus led astray as to the name of the patriot, as this was the home of both. "Granther Stannard " believed that his legs were of glass and feared to use them because of their fragility.
