  • 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.
