About Peter Coffin

Peter Coffin - "These were the descendants of that branch of Tristram Coffin's family who settled in and around Newbury"

from History of the Town of Gloucester: Cape Ann By John James Babson. Page 65

Peter Coffin was son of Tristram Coffin of Newbury, where the family settled early. He came to Gloucester in 1688, and occupied the large tract of land, of about five hundred acres, between Annisquam and Chcbacco Rivers (originally granted to William Stevens), that his father had purchased the same year of Jonathan Willoughby of London. How long he remained here is uncertain. Two daughters (Hannah and Judith) were born, by his wife Afiah, within three years after he came.
