About Peter Levalley

(I) Peter LeValley is supposed to have been born in the Channel Islands, and died in Warwick, Rhode Island, in 1757.  He was a fisherman at Marblehead, Massachusetts, where he is first found of record, and in November, 1727, exchanged his real estate in that town with Rev. George Pigott, an Episcopal clergyman of Warwick, Rhode Island.  He at once removed to the latter town where he was admitted a freeman, March 4, 1728.  His wife Sarah probably accompanied him from Europe, as nothing is known of her beyond her baptismal name.  They had children: Peter; John; Michael; Mary, married - King; Margaret, married October 30, 1726, Christopher Bulier or Bubois [actually Beubier]; Sarah, married Peleg Cook.

In 1727, Reverend Pigot traded this property with Peter Levalley, a resident of Marblehead, Massachusetts. Levalley, reportedly a Huguenot descendant and former sea captain, resided here until his death in 1820, working part of his extensive farm, which he added to through inheritance and purchase.
