About Ann Tallman

  • 'The genealogical dictionary of Rhode Island: comprising three generations of ... By John Osborne Austin
  • Pg. 457 /115
  • TALLMAN, Peter (p. 196, 1st col.) came from Hamburg, Germany, of a burgher family, which probably originated in Schleswig-Holstein. He was born about 1623, probably the son of Heinrich and Ann Tuelmon of Humburg and was made a burgher of that City 14 Aug. 1646. Soon after he emigrated to Barbados, where on 2 Jan. 1649 (?1649/9) he married in Christ Church Parish, 'Anne', daughter of Philip and Anne Hill of that parish. Soon after, he came to Rhode Island. On 2 June 1648 he contracted with Nathaniel Maverick to transport him, with his goods, in the ship Golden Dolphin to New England. He occurs on 5:12:1650 as "Peter Talmon of Newport on Rhode Island apothecary" (Aspinwall, pp. 209, 370). He was at New Amsterdam in 1651 and was trading with Delaware. He was at Hartford and on 20 May 1652 he was styled "Dutchman" in the Conn. records. He was residing at Flushing and New Amsterdam 1655-1658, but was a Freeman at Newport, R. I., in 1655.
  • Pg. 458 /116
  • On 4 Oct. 1655, he bought a house and lot in New Amsterdam, and on 25 May 1658, "Pieter Taelman burgher and inhabitant of New Amsterdam," sold the same to Dirck Jansen van Daventer (N.Y. City Rec., Dutch Deeds, Bk, A. pp. 95, 135). He returned to Rhode Island and settled at Portsmouth in 1658. Bought lands on the Taunton River in Plymouth Colony (now Dighton, Mass.) and at Dartmouth, as well as a considerable tract on Martha's Vineyard. He was Commissioner in 1661 at Warwick, R. I. 'In 1665 his wife Anne was sentenced to be whipped for adultery'. He deposed at Portsmouth on 13 March 1702/3, aged 80 years or thereabouts, that he was born in Hamburg and went to Barbados, where he 'married at Christ Church Parish, Anne, daughter of Philip and Anne Hill, and thereafter removed to R. I. with his wife's mother, who remarried Mr. John Elton and removed to Flushing and later to Staten Island and eventually went with her son Robert Hill to Virginia, where as he had heard, she married once more, a Capt. Hudson'. Dr. Peter Tallman of Guilford, Conn., was his son (Portsmouth Town Records).
    • Peter of Guilford (2nd col.) on 5 Nov 1703 sold land at Dragon Swamp in Furnham Parish, Rappahannock Co., Va., as heir of Robert Hill (his uncle) of Rappahannock Co., Va. (Essex Co., Va., Deeds, Bk. 11. p. 115).

The antenuptial agreement between Peter and Joan and the deeds by which it was confirmed are set forth in full in the Portsmouth town records. The documents are elaborately and excellently written, and indicate a very liberal settlement on the bride. She bore him several children, of whom your ancestress is listed as the twelfth, and there were still others. Joan died in 1685 and in 1686 Peter married for the third time one Esther.

Ann was the daughter of Philip and Ann Hill of Rhode Island and Barbados.

She married Peter Tallman on 2 Jan 1649 in Christ Church Parish, Barbados.

In 1655 Ann was sentenced to be whipped for adultry. This is probably the reason or Peter divorcing her the same year.

After the divorce, Ann reportedly married William Porter.

There is a possibility that she died in Warwick RI.
