About Peregrina Warfield

Early genealogical writings for the Wheelock surname often report that

Rebecca Wheelock gave birth to a daughter at sea during their 1637 voyage to the

Massachusetts Bay Colony. If there is any truth to this story, then it must have been

Peregrina, since the births of the other children are accounted for. In this regard, the

name "Peregrina" is suggestive. The word peregrinate means "to journey or travel

from place to place". It is derived from the latin peregrinari which means "to travel in

foreign lands". Ralph, schooled in latin, might very well have chosen this name

based on the circumstances of her birth.
