About Rev. Jeremiah M. Peck

Sent from Arlene Hughes... from Atwater History and Genealogy, compiled by Francis Atwater, Meriden, Conn, printed by the Journal Publishing Co., 1901, p. 97: Jonathan, Son of David lived in New Haven, m. June 1, 1681, Ruth, daughter of Rev. Jeremiah Peck. She d. June 3, 1727. Her will was probated Oct 3, 1741. The Rev. Jeremiah Peck, father of Ruth, was a son of William Peck, Deacon, one of the original settlers of New Haven, also a signer of the "Fundamental Agreement of Quinnipack". He was born in England about 1623. In 1656 he kept a school in Guilford, Conn. where he remained until 1660. That year he was established, according to an act of the court, in the Hopkins Collegiate Grammer School in New Haven, and there "taught the language of science" In 1661 he was a minister at Saybrook. In 1677, unwilling to abide by the union of the New Haven Colony with the "lax and broader principated" Colony of Connecticut, he, with a few others, departed for Newark, New Jersey, to form a colony more congenial to their views. He there resided in 1674. He then removed to Elizabethtown, NJ, thence to Greenwich, CT, where he was minister in 1689; thence to Waterbury, CT, where he was first minister and there died June 7, 1699, aged 76. He married Nov. 12, 1656, Joanna Ketchel/Kitchell, daughter of Robert Ketchel and Margaret Schaeffe (dau. of Richard Sheaffe 1558/9 - 14 Sep 1625 & Margaret Roberts 1564 - 8 Feb 1621/2; gr. daughter of Thomas Sheaffe 1532 - 1604 and Mary Harmon 1536 - 1609 of Cranbrook, Kent, England).

Find A Grave# 28419413. Came to America with his Father on board the HMS Hector.He was a Reverend.
The son of DEACON WILLIAM & ELIZABETH PECK, Rev. Jeremiah was educated at Hopkins Collegiate in Lyme, Conn.

On Nov.a 12, 1656, Jeremiah Peck & JOHANNA (HANNAH) KITCHELL were married in Guilford, Conn. from 1656 to 1660. He was school-master at Guilford, Conn. where he taught Latin, Greek, & Hebrew, and for a comfortable home and £40 a year he prepared the scholars there for college.

Then he kept the Hopkins Collegate Grammer School where he "taught the languages of sciences." in 1660, the year that they brought the school from Lyme, Conn. to New Haven. His salary was "30 bushels of wheat, one barrel of pork, and two barrels of beef, 40 bushels of Indian corn, 30 bushels of peas, one firkin of butter, 100 lbs. of flax, and 30 bushels of oats".

He was in New Haven for about a year and then removed to Saybrook, Conn in 1661, where he remained until 1677.
