Peter was the minister of the Old Ship Church of Hingham. History has Peter "as an independent and spirited clergyman ... which occasionally brought him up before the general court [of the Massachusetts Bay Colony] to answer for his outspoken opinions.

Before the Rev Peter Hobart arrived in New England, with his flock from his church in Hingham, England, the place he came to was settled, but known as Barecove. By petition to the general court of the MBC, Hobart got the name of " Barecove is changed and hereafter to be called Hingham."

He was educated at Magdalen Coll., Cambridge, Eng., where he received the degree of Bachelor in 1625, and of Master of Arts in 1629.

Five of Peter's sons were educated at Harvard College, of which four became Ministers of the gospel.
