  • --------------------
   Two theories about Peter Tallman's parents:
   1. One says he is the son of Henry and Anna Tallman (of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany).
   2. The other says he is the son of Peter Talemann (of Antwerpen, Belgium) and Maria Von Peene (of Haarlem, Holland).
   The first theory is generally referred to as the "Moriatry" theory. It comes from research commissioned by NEHGS in 1915. G. Andrews Moriarty wrote an article called "The Tallman Family" that cites research done in Hamburg by Dr. Henry Presch.
   The other theory is generally referred to as the "Boyer" theory. From the book "Ancestral Lines Revisited" by Carl Boyer (1981).
   Most contemporary researchers believe the second theory is the correct one.
  • --------------------

Peter came from Hamburg, Germany, of a burgher family which probably originated in Schleswig-Holstein. He was made a burgher of Hamburg on August 14, 1646. Soon after he emigrated to Barbados.

Peter is in the list of freemen at Newport 1655, and among the proprietors of Guilford 1685.

Peter was general solicitor of Rhode Island in 1661.

Last name also listed as "Talemann," "Talmon," and "Talman."

This is a very interesting & enjoyable story about Peter, his family and most of all about Peter's personality.

   In the town records of Portsmouth, R. I., there is to be found the following deposition by Joseph Sheffield concerning a declaration made by Peter Tallman of Portsmouth on 13 Mar. 1702/3:
   Joseph Sheffield, one of her Majesties Assistants, testified that being in the house of Peter Tallman in Portsmouth, 13March 1702/3. Peter declared: "I am now 80 years of age and in the year 1647 I came from Hambrough to the Island of Barbados and within two years after my arrival I married with Ann Hill daughter of Philip Hill and Ann his wife." "He was married in Christ Church Parish in said Island, and after sever or eight months after his marriage, the said Tallman moved from the Island of Barbados to Rhode Island, bringing with his wife and his wife's brother called Robert Hill as likewise his wife's mother, who after said Philip Hills death married Mr. John Elton, and Mrs. Elton remained in Rhode Island about one year with her son Robert, and afterwards removed from Rhode Island to Flushing upon Long Island, and thence to Staten Island in the Government of New York, and afterwards under Virginia or Maryland, carrying her son Robert Hill, and after her being in Virginia she had a child or more by Capt Hudson, who, as is reported, she married, and further said Robert Hill settled in Virginia, and further said Tallman declared to me, the said deponent, that the Peter Tallman whose habitation is now at Guilford, in the County of New Haven in Connecticut is eldest lawful son of said Perter Tallman"
   17 March 1702/3.
   Since finding the deposition given above I have received through the courtesy of my friend E. G. Sinckler, Esq., of Barbados, the following item from the registers of Christ Church Parish, Barbados: "married January 2, 1649 Peter Tolman and Ann Hill."
   Peter Tallman made a "freeman" in 1655. In 1661 General Solicitor for R.I. Commissioner in 1661-2. Deputy Governor 1662-5

   Sex: M
   Birth: 1589 in Belgium
   Death: UNKNOWN
   Burial: UNKNOWN Portsmouth, Newport, Rhode Island
   Note:
   'The American Genealogist' states that Peter Tallman came from Hamburg, Germany, of a burgher family, which probably originated in Schleswig-Holstein. Soon after he was made a burgher in Hamburg on August 14, 1646, he emigrated to Barbados. Here he married Anne Hill, the daughter of Philip and Anne Hill, at Christ Church Parish, January 2, 1648/9.
   On June 2, 1648, Peter arranged for Nathaniel Maverick to transport him, with his goods, in the ship "Golden Dolphin", to New England. He was at New Amsterdam in 1651, and was trading with Delaware. Connecticut records show Peter Tallman also at Hartford, where on May 20, 1652, he was styled "Dutchman".
   Peter Taelman, on June 27, 1651, had clearance of a vessel from Manhattan to South (Delaware) River. The magistrates of Middleburgh (Newtown), New York, complained that Peter Taelman had removed tobacco attached by the court at Flushing (Jan 26, 1656).
   On October 4, 1655, he bought a house and lot in New Amsterdam, and on May 25, 1658, "Pieter Taelman burgher and inhabitant of New Amsterdam," sold the same to Dirck Jansen van Daventer (N.Y. City Rec., Dutch Deeds, BK. A, p. 95, 135).
   Peter resided at Flushing and New Amsterdam from 1655 to 1658, but in 1655, he was declared a Freeman in Rhode Island. He bought nine acres in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, for 35 shilling an acre, from Richard Morris and his wife. Two days later. Peter bought six adjoining acres from William Wilbur.
   He returned to Rhode island settling at Portsmouth in 1658. He bought lands on the Taunton River in Plymouth Colony (now Dighton, Massachusetts) and at Dartmouth, as well as a considerable tract on Martha's Vineyard.
   Peter served Portsmouth as General Solicitor for the Colony of Rhode Island (1661), Commissioner at Warwick, Rhode island, (1661-62) and Deputy (1662-63). In 1665, the Assembly granted him a divorce from his wife Anne, who was sentenced to be whipped for adultery.
   Anne's mother had accompanied her daughter and son-in-law to Rhode island. Here she remarried John Eiton and moved to Flushing, later to Staten island. Eventually, she went to Virginia with her son Robert Hill, where she married a Captain Hudson.
   An ante-nuptial agreement was drawn between Peter and Joan Briggs, of Taunton, Massachusetts. He agreed to give her land he had bought of Richard Morris, Daniel Wilcox and William Wilbur, and also a hou?e, all to be hers and her heirs born of this marriage. He gave her a bed and half the household goods, but if she should die without issue the estate given her was to revert to Peter Tallmaq's oldest son. Peter, Jr., and if the latter die without issue then to Peter Tallman Senior's oldest daughter, Mary and her heirs. To Joan, absolutely as a "free gift of donation", he gave three good cows and a breeding mare.
   Having broken a law of Massachusetts prohibiting the receipt of land from Indians by deeds of gift. Peter was imprisoned. He was
   released June 7, 1674, upon surrender of the deeds. Peter brought suit against Rebecca Sadler, wife of Thomas, for breach of peace and threatening his family (Oct. 20, 1675).
   Peter served on a jury (Sept. 18, 1683) at Portsmouth, in the case of a man found dead and hanging by the head by a neckcloth fastened to a bough of a cherry tree. Verdict: "That we do not find but that the said man said to be named John Crags, was absolutely the only actor of his own death."
   Inventory of Peter Tallman' estate was presented by his son, James in 1708. On May 8, 1709, administration had been given to
   Jonathan Talirtan. Jonathan took acquittances at this date from his brothers and sisters. The signers of the instrument were: William Wilbur, Israel Shaw, Jonathan Tallman, James Tallman, Benjamin Tallman, Mary Pearce, Susanna Beckett, Peter Tallman, Isaac Lawton, William Potter, John Tallman, Joseph Tallman and Samuel Tollman.

   "Hi Rick - I just finished rereading the biog. on my ancestor Peter Tallman 1623-1708 and was amazed how contentious and litigious he was. I counted 11 times he was either being sued or sued someone else. What was happening to the good Quakers on Aquidneck Island? ...
   1650 Gave power attorney to John Elton to sue Samuel Maverick for a bad debt or imprison him.
   1656 In probate court he was ordered to pay 201 florins.
   1656 He sued Rutgert Jansen for defaulting on a debt.
   1658 He sued Thomas Yongh for defaulting on a debt.
   1658 He was sued for not paying 297 pounds of tobacco for receiving Spanish wine and stockings,
   1658 He filed a countersuit for "all costs, damages, and wrongs" for the above.
   1658 Sued the surgeon of the ship Sphera Mundi for an "anker of brandy .. and 400 pounds of tobacco.
   1664 Sued Thomas Durfee - probably because he was messing around with his wife Ann
   1668 Edward Lay's wife complained to the authorities that she feared Peter Tallman might kill her.

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.

Mr. Emery States the following in his manuscript: "It has long been a Tallman tradition that the family was of German origin. The first American ancestor was Peter Tallman, found in Portsmouth, RI, in the middle of the 17th century, but it was not established until 1914 that he came from Hamburg, Germany. The discoverer of this fact, George Andrews Moriarty, of the committee on English and foreign research of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, brought to light a deposition, transcribed on the town records of Portsmouth, and made by Joseph Sheffield on March 17, 1702/3, concerning a declaration made to him by Peter Tallman of Portsmouth on March 13 of that year. Peter Tallman's statement was that in 1647 he came from Hambrough [Hamburg]to the the island of Barbadoes, and that subsequently he removed therefrom to Rhode Island, The Shffield deposition was as follows; Joseph Sheffield, one of her majesties Assistants, testified that being in the house of Peter Tallman in Portsmouth March 13, 1702/03, Peter declared: "Iam now 80 years of age and in the year 1647 I came from Hambrough to the Island of Barbados, and within two years after my arrival I married with Ann Hill the daughter of Philip Hill and Ann his wife," and he was married in Christ Church Parish in said island, and after seven or eight months after his marriage the said Tallman moved from the Island of Barbados to Rhode Island bringing wih him his wife and his wife's brother called Robert Hill, as likewise his wife's mother... and further said Tallman declared to me the said deponent that the Peter Tallman whose habitation is now at Guildford in the County of New Haven in Connecticut is eldest lawfull son of said Peter Tallman Acting upon the clues presented the Genealogical Spociety's committee on English and foreign research mommissioned Dr. Hennry Presch, Jr., of Hamburg, Germany, to make researches in the Hamburg records for the parentage and ancestry of Peter Tallman of Rhode Island, and entries were found in the books of the Parish of St. Nicholas, Hamburg, and the Hamburg Burgher Book. From these Mr. Moriarty constructed a brief German pedigree of Peter Tallman of Barbados and Rhode Island.

From the book, "Talman/Tallman Families", by Herbert S. Ackerman, pg.101: "G1 Peter Tallman; Henry (-G1); of Germany. Born about 1623 in Hamburgh, Germany. Came to the Island of Barbadoes, W.I., then to New York and then to Rhode Island. Died 1708 at Portsmouth, R.I. Married: 1st. Jan. 2, 1649 in Christ Church, Barbadoes Island to Ann Hill of Barbadoes. Daughter of Philip Hill and Ann ?. Divorced in Rhode Island May 1665. Children: G21 Mary, born 1651(?) G22 Elizabeth, born 1654(?) G23 Ann, born 1656(?) G24 Peter, born Mar. 22, 1657-8 Portsmouth, R.I. G25 Joseph, born 1660(?) Living in 1709. G26 Susanna, born 1662(?) G27 Sarah, born 1666(?) Married: 2d. 1665. Taunton, Rhode Island to Joan Briggs.

G213 Nathaniel, born 1680(?) G214 Benjamin, born Jan. 28, 1685 Portsmouth, R.I. Married: 3d. 1686 in Rhode Island to Esther ? Born ? Died 1708. Children: G215 Samuel, born Jan. 14, 1687-8 Portsmouth, R.I. Joseph Sheffield testified that being in the house of Peter Tallman in Portsmouth, R.I., Mar. 13, 1702-3. Peter declared: "I am now 80 years of age and in the year 1647 I came from Hambrough to the Island of Barbadoes and within two years after my arrival I married with Ann Hill daughter of Philip Hill and Ann his wife." "He was married in Christ Church Parish in said Island, and after seven or eight months after his marriage, the said Tallman moved from the Island of Barbadoes to Rhode Island, bringing with his wife and his wife's brother called Robert Hill, as likewise his wife's mother, x x x and further said Tallman declared to me the said deponent that the Peter Tallman whose habitation is now at Guilford, in the County of New Haven in Conn. is eldest lawful son of said Perter Tallman" Peter Tallman made a "Freeman" in 1655. In 1661 General Solicitor for R.I. Commissioner in 1661-2. Deputy Governor 1662-5. "


Two theories about Peter Tallman's parents: 1. One says he is the son of Henry and Anna Tallman (of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany). 2. The other says he is the son of Peter Talemann (of Antwerpen, Belgium) and Maria Von Peene (of Haarlem, Holland). The first theory is generally referred to as the "Moriatry" theory. It comes from research commissioned by NEHGS in 1915. G. Andrews Moriarty wrote an article called "The Tallman Family" that cites research done in Hamburg by Dr. Henry Presch. The other theory is generally referred to as the "Boyer" theory. From the book "Ancestral Lines Revisited" by Carl Boyer (1981). Most contemporary researchers believe the second theory is the correct one.
Peter came from Hamburg, Germany, of a burgher family which probably originated in Schleswig-Holstein. He was made a burgher of Hamburg on August 14, 1646. Soon after he emigrated to Barbados.

Peter is in the list of freemen at Newport 1655, and among the proprietors of Guilford 1685.

Peter was general solicitor of Rhode Island in 1661.

Last name also listed as "Talemann," "Talmon," and "Talman."


This is a very interesting & enjoyable story about Peter, his family and most of all about Peter's personality.

In the town records of Portsmouth, R. I., there is to be found the following deposition by Joseph Sheffield concerning a declaration made by Peter Tallman of Portsmouth on 13 Mar. 1702/3: Joseph Sheffield, one of her Majesties Assistants, testified that being in the house of Peter Tallman in Portsmouth, 13March 1702/3. Peter declared: "I am now 80 years of age and in the year 1647 I came from Hambrough to the Island of Barbados and within two years after my arrival I married with Ann Hill daughter of Philip Hill and Ann his wife." "He was married in Christ Church Parish in said Island, and after sever or eight months after his marriage, the said Tallman moved from the Island of Barbados to Rhode Island, bringing with his wife and his wife's brother called Robert Hill as likewise his wife's mother, who after said Philip Hills death married Mr. John Elton, and Mrs. Elton remained in Rhode Island about one year with her son Robert, and afterwards removed from Rhode Island to Flushing upon Long Island, and thence to Staten Island in the Government of New York, and afterwards under Virginia or Maryland, carrying her son Robert Hill, and after her being in Virginia she had a child or more by Capt Hudson, who, as is reported, she married, and further said Robert Hill settled in Virginia, and further said Tallman declared to me, the said deponent, that the Peter Tallman whose habitation is now at Guilford, in the County of New Haven in Connecticut is eldest lawful son of said Perter Tallman" 17 March 1702/3. Since finding the deposition given above I have received through the courtesy of my friend E. G. Sinckler, Esq., of Barbados, the following item from the registers of Christ Church Parish, Barbados: "married January 2, 1649 Peter Tolman and Ann Hill." Peter Tallman made a "freeman" in 1655. In 1661 General Solicitor for R.I. Commissioner in 1661-2. Deputy Governor 1662-5
Name: Peter TALLMAN Sex: M Birth: 1589 in Belgium Death: UNKNOWN Burial: UNKNOWN Portsmouth, Newport, Rhode Island Note: 'The American Genealogist' states that Peter Tallman came from Hamburg, Germany, of a burgher family, which probably originated in Schleswig-Holstein. Soon after he was made a burgher in Hamburg on August 14, 1646, he emigrated to Barbados. Here he married Anne Hill, the daughter of Philip and Anne Hill, at Christ Church Parish, January 2, 1648/9. On June 2, 1648, Peter arranged for Nathaniel Maverick to transport him, with his goods, in the ship "Golden Dolphin", to New England. He was at New Amsterdam in 1651, and was trading with Delaware. Connecticut records show Peter Tallman also at Hartford, where on May 20, 1652, he was styled "Dutchman". Peter Taelman, on June 27, 1651, had clearance of a vessel from Manhattan to South (Delaware) River. The magistrates of Middleburgh (Newtown), New York, complained that Peter Taelman had removed tobacco attached by the court at Flushing (Jan 26, 1656). On October 4, 1655, he bought a house and lot in New Amsterdam, and on May 25, 1658, "Pieter Taelman burgher and inhabitant of New Amsterdam," sold the same to Dirck Jansen van Daventer (N.Y. City Rec., Dutch Deeds, BK. A, p. 95, 135). Peter resided at Flushing and New Amsterdam from 1655 to 1658, but in 1655, he was declared a Freeman in Rhode Island. He bought nine acres in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, for 35 shilling an acre, from Richard Morris and his wife. Two days later. Peter bought six adjoining acres from William Wilbur. He returned to Rhode island settling at Portsmouth in 1658. He bought lands on the Taunton River in Plymouth Colony (now Dighton, Massachusetts) and at Dartmouth, as well as a considerable tract on Martha's Vineyard. Peter served Portsmouth as General Solicitor for the Colony of Rhode Island (1661), Commissioner at Warwick, Rhode island, (1661-62) and Deputy (1662-63). In 1665, the Assembly granted him a divorce from his wife Anne, who was sentenced to be whipped for adultery. Anne's mother had accompanied her daughter and son-in-law to Rhode island. Here she remarried John Eiton and moved to Flushing, later to Staten island. Eventually, she went to Virginia with her son Robert Hill, where she married a Captain Hudson. An ante-nuptial agreement was drawn between Peter and Joan Briggs, of Taunton, Massachusetts. He agreed to give her land he had bought of Richard Morris, Daniel Wilcox and William Wilbur, and also a hou?e, all to be hers and her heirs born of this marriage. He gave her a bed and half the household goods, but if she should die without issue the estate given her was to revert to Peter Tallmaq's oldest son. Peter, Jr., and if the latter die without issue then to Peter Tallman Senior's oldest daughter, Mary and her heirs. To Joan, absolutely as a "free gift of donation", he gave three good cows and a breeding mare. Having broken a law of Massachusetts prohibiting the receipt of land from Indians by deeds of gift. Peter was imprisoned. He was released June 7, 1674, upon surrender of the deeds. Peter brought suit against Rebecca Sadler, wife of Thomas, for breach of peace and threatening his family (Oct. 20, 1675). Peter served on a jury (Sept. 18, 1683) at Portsmouth, in the case of a man found dead and hanging by the head by a neckcloth fastened to a bough of a cherry tree. Verdict: "That we do not find but that the said man said to be named John Crags, was absolutely the only actor of his own death." Inventory of Peter Tallman' estate was presented by his son, James in 1708. On May 8, 1709, administration had been given to Jonathan Talirtan. Jonathan took acquittances at this date from his brothers and sisters. The signers of the instrument were: William Wilbur, Israel Shaw, Jonathan Tallman, James Tallman, Benjamin Tallman, Mary Pearce, Susanna Beckett, Peter Tallman, Isaac Lawton, William Potter, John Tallman, Joseph Tallman and Samuel Tollman.
Email from Dave Banjofan , dated 30 June 2005: "Hi Rick - I just finished rereading the biog. on my ancestor Peter Tallman 1623-1708 and was amazed how contentious and litigious he was. I counted 11 times he was either being sued or sued someone else. What was happening to the good Quakers on Aquidneck Island? ... 1650 Gave power attorney to John Elton to sue Samuel Maverick for a bad debt or imprison him. 1656 In probate court he was ordered to pay 201 florins. 1656 He sued Rutgert Jansen for defaulting on a debt. 1658 He sued Thomas Yongh for defaulting on a debt. 1658 He was sued for not paying 297 pounds of tobacco for receiving Spanish wine and stockings, 1658 He filed a countersuit for "all costs, damages, and wrongs" for the above. 1658 Sued the surgeon of the ship Sphera Mundi for an "anker of brandy .. and 400 pounds of tobacco. 1664 Sued Thomas Durfee - probably because he was messing around with his wife Ann 1668 Edward Lay's wife complained to the authorities that she feared Peter Tallman might kill her. 1675 A complaint filed against him because of a fence he put up in a highway. 1675 Sued Rebecca Sadler for "breach of the peace and threatening (his) family."

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. Photos of: The Tallman cemetery, on top of a hill in rural Pickaway County, Ohio headstone for Benjamin and Dinah (Boone) Tallman http://landofthebuckeye.net/ui281.htm ____________________ Mr. Emery States the following in his manuscript: "It has long been a Tallman tradition that the family was of German origin. The first American ancestor was Peter Tallman, found in Portsmouth, RI, in the middle of the 17th century, but it was not established until 1914 that he came from Hamburg, Germany. The discoverer of this fact, George Andrews Moriarty, of the committee on English and foreign research of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, brought to light a deposition, transcribed on the town records of Portsmouth, and made by Joseph Sheffield on March 17, 1702/3, concerning a declaration made to him by Peter Tallman of Portsmouth on March 13 of that year. Peter Tallman's statement was that in 1647 he came from Hambrough [Hamburg]to the the island of Barbadoes, and that subsequently he removed therefrom to Rhode Island, The Shffield deposition was as follows; Joseph Sheffield, one of her majesties Assistants, testified that being in the house of Peter Tallman in Portsmouth March 13, 1702/03, Peter declared: "Iam now 80 years of age and in the year 1647 I came from Hambrough to the Island of Barbados, and within two years after my arrival I married with Ann Hill the daughter of Philip Hill and Ann his wife," and he was married in Christ Church Parish in said island, and after seven or eight months after his marriage the said Tallman moved from the Island of Barbados to Rhode Island bringing wih him his wife and his wife's brother called Robert Hill, as likewise his wife's mother... and further said Tallman declared to me the said deponent that the Peter Tallman whose habitation is now at Guildford in the County of New Haven in Connecticut is eldest lawfull son of said Peter Tallman Acting upon the clues presented the Genealogical Spociety's committee on English and foreign research mommissioned Dr. Hennry Presch, Jr., of Hamburg, Germany, to make researches in the Hamburg records for the parentage and ancestry of Peter Tallman of Rhode Island, and entries were found in the books of the Parish of St. Nicholas, Hamburg, and the Hamburg Burgher Book. From these Mr. Moriarty constructed a brief German pedigree of Peter Tallman of Barbados and Rhode Island.
