He settled first about 1647 at Barbados, where he married his first wife Ann Hill, then in 1649 relocated to Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Peter and Ann were divorced in 1665 based on alleged infidelity of Ann, producing a child by another man. Peter Tallman then married Joan Briggs in July, 1665. Our descent is from Peter and Joan's son Benjamin (1684 - 1759) and his wife Patience Durfee, via their son William, born in Rhode Island, who married Anne Lincoln and lived at Reading in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Of eleven children born to William and Anne Lincoln Tallman, only Benjamin lived to adulthood, to marry and have children of his own. Ben Tallman married Dinah Boone, daughter of Benjamin and Susannah (Liken) Boone in 1764 in Berks County.

Ann Tallman was born in about 1658, likely in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, based on the whereabouts of her father, Peter Tallman, at this point in time. Her mother was Ann Hill, Peter's first wife.[1]

Ann married Stephen Brayton of Portsmouth, March 8, 1678-9. They had five children.[1]

After Stephen's death, Ann married William Potter by 1701.[2] [3]

Her vitals are based on very weak sources[4][5][6] and need to be confirmed.

If she did indeed marry in 1677, then she had to be the daughter of Peter's first wife, Ann Hill.

She died about 1732.[7][8]
