Thank you all for the great job that you've done here!! I can't imagine that hard work it must've been to get this all online much less the tons of research that's gone into discovering and maintaining the Pe(aec)k(e) Family Tree!

Again, Thank you.. and

Looking at your tree I see that you have continued the myth that Richard Edlyn son of Richard Edlyn and Joan Reading married Margaret. It is clear from his will that this Richard who was a governor of Harrow School never married and had no children.



The Richard who married Margaret was probably the son of John Edlyn of Harrow Weald although the only evidence that I can find to confirm this is the progression of a property called Marlpits.

Congradulations, this is a very nicely organized site. I was researching the early families of Bullitt County, Kentucky and located this site through a search for Early Catholic Migration. Your historical explainations and reference list is invaluable and has given me a wealth to look into. I will be returning to your site often in the future. By publishing the B. J. Webb list of Pottinger's Creek, you have given me the starting point for many of the families that now live here in Bullitt County.

Trying to research my mother's family history. She was born Catherine M. Bowling on 5/24/26 to John Clarence Bowling and Agnes Sparks. I believe Agnes (Sparks) Bowling died soon after the birth of mother. My mother was baptized at St. Vincent de Paul Church in New Hope, Kentucky. Looking for any info.

Looking for a "Family Story"

I am a descendant of James E F Miller and Mary E Bitter>> Joseph A Bitter & Mary Agnes Davenport b 1887>> James Reburn Davenport & Matilda Louisa Wathen 1842>> George Wathen 1804* & Elizabeth Cissell 1816**>>(all Union Co., KY)

From her on it goes wild >>*Thomas Wathens 1774 (son of John Barton Wathen and Mary Ann UNK)& *Ann Nancy Simms 1769-84 (Dau of Mark Sims & Susannah Burtles) and >> **James S Cissell 1765 (son of James Rodolph Cissell & Mary & Stewart)& **Catherine Wathen 1767 (dau of Bennet Wathen & Sarah Unknown)>>
I dip into the Wathen's 3 times, the Barton's, Edelen's, Cissel's, Simms', Burtles', Mudd's, Hagan's, Sisson's, Banton's, Hudson's and more.

My Ancesters were on the March from Maryland to Nelson Co. KY. James Rodolph (Rhodey) Cissell (probably the Robert you have listed) and father James Ignatius Cissell 1759. I have seen him listed on other lists. Perhaps some Wathen's and Joseph Edelen.

I am looking for the story of Elizabeth Banton and her father, Lord Pannewell, who was a staunch Catholic and refused to give permission for the marriage of Richard Edelen, son of the Rev Edelen, Minister, and his daughter, Elizabeth Banton. So they ran off to London, got married and left for America living as Catholics untill she got pregnant, they went back for the birth of 1st child. Her father eventuall sent them back to America to avoid the Plague or Sickness going on at the time. Have you seen this story, if so, please let me know where it is.

I have a question on Charles T.Peak born 1827/28.
I have him married to America Drury 10 Feb 1851 Meade County,Ky.,and I also have a note from a deed book in 1859
Hardin County showing that this Charles T. was married to Nancy Drury,I can not find them together in 1860 when they should have had at least 4 children.Nancy's middle name may have been America but that does not account for Charles' wife being Anna A. in 1870,can ypou help me out here.

Hi! I've been working on my husband's PEAKE family for about 10 years. His gggrandfather was Robert Peake who was a miner/farmer and settled here in Southwest Wisconsin in the 1830's. His ggrandfather John Peake who was known also by the name "PECK" was born in 1841. We know that they are of English descent. This is a fun adventure - looking up past family connections and always great to come across another PEAKE family. Have enjoyed looking over your materials. Thanks. Virginia

I am in the search for our family history. Your site seems to be of our Peak family, but I am not sure. My great-great grandfather's name is G. B. Peak married to an Anna. My great-grandfather's name is Otto "Bud" Peak, born April 29, 1883. My grandfather's name is Arvil Peak, born in Sweden, MO. December 23, 1915. This group of Peaks were said to have traveled from St. Joe, Missouri. I do know that our family came initially from Europe and were German-speaking. If anyone knows anything about this line, please contact me. Thank you.

I really enjoyed reading the information contained on your website. I am descended from the Virginia Peakes through William and his daughter Margaret "Peggy" Peake whom married Benjamin Trenary.
The website states that the last name of William's wife Barbara is unknown. It is Carter. She was born in 1748 in either Washington or Kentucky.
I am very curious as to whether or not the Virginia Peake's are related to the Maryland Peakes.

Hello Bob and Johnny,
I just read your history of the Peake's. It was wonderful. I love the picture of Grandma Praxie, Lucille, Emma, Ernie and Great Grandma Mary Russell Coy. I have some pictures of Gabriel Timothy Peake that you might want to see. I found them when I was cleaning out Lucille's house. I also found the glasses that Gabriel Timothy Peake was wearing when he fell. Lucille had saved them all those years. In fact Lucille apparently saved everything. Anyway, Lucille had always said that when he fell he broke his glasses and guess what, his glasses are broke. I found alot of prayer cards (those kind you get at funerals)on some of our relatives that seem to be very old if you would like to look at those. I think they might help track down the dates of birth and death if you are still looking for some. I know Grandma, Lucille and the rest of the sisters would have loved this research. After Lucille died I planted a Seven Sister Rose in honor of all the sisters. I can probably send you a cutting from it ( I'LL ask Bonnie how) if you would like to plant one in their honor. too.
P.S. I recognize most of the people in the picture but mom and I are disagreeing on which sister is on the end. Can let me know who that is. Thanks and let me know if you would like to see any of the things I found at Lucille's house.

Hi Uncle Bob and Johnny,
I greatly enjoyed the web page about my ancestors. I couldn't help feeling the smiles of Grandma Praxie and the other wonderful ladies to whom this page is dedicated and who mean so much to me personally, as I read this history. I know they would have been 'blown away' to have such a public dedication in their honor. Great job fellas.
Love to you both,
Bonnie

I have went over your wonderful work very maticulously because i was curious as to the difference between what you have and what I have. I have found several descrepincies. I have done a history on the Peake's or Peak's based on the records of my 14 aunts and uncles all from one family decended from Benjamine J. Peak. It is not as thorough as yours but I believe the descrepencies need addressing. My mother is Eva Mae Brown. Her mother was Agnes Josephine Peak. Her mother was Mary Magdeline Peak. Mary M. was maried to William Thomas Peak. They were second cousins. The records of all of my aunts and uncles confirm this and you do mention this. But the geneology you present does not support this. You have Benjamine J. Peak as being the son of Francis Peake-John Kenelm's brother. You base this on a court summons. If this is true then my mothers grandparents couldn't be second cousins. We have Benjamine J. Peak as the son of Charles Peak and Lucy Nevitt. This is based on Bible records and records from from Hardin co. census 1870; Nelson co. mariage records; Book written by TILLIE WHELAN ONISCHAK, 1974, PP 261-263. You also mention that William Peak was married to Lucinda Edelen who was the sister of Louisa Edelen and married to Benjamine Peak Williams brother. I believe that the court summons you mention and present is only proof that Francis Peake's children along with possible some nephews/neices and great nephews/neices. My mother said her mother-Agnes J. Peak-always talked about her uncle Willie and Aunt Lucinda. And that her Grandparents were second cousins. I believe that Benjamine and William were brothers but their Parents were Charles Peak and Lucy Nevitt. It is the only way any of it works! Check out the documentation mentioned above.

Hi all you Peake researchers, love your site, wonderful early MD history. However, you have left out a vital part of this family and I think it may be because this early author ignored the Pakes, Peeks, Pikes, Paks, etc. variations of the name. I'm a Mattingly researcher and we have several books written about the Mattinglys of MD with lots of ommissions and errors, but all agree, Thomas Mattingly died in MD about 1664 and his widow, Elizabeth, married Walter Pake, who was Walter Peake. Needless to say, they weren't married long, however, I think there was a common family relationship between these families in MD, VA and KY. My branch of the family are Matneys, a variation of Mattingly, and we think they moved from MD to Fairfax VA to Pittsylvania County VA eventually, many stayed in SW VA, some went on to KY, and many ended up in MO. My family wound up in Oregon. Walter Jefferson Matney was on the 1843 Wagon Train to Oregon from MO, which was the first big train to Oregon. There are many Walter Matneys, I think they are originally meant to honor Walter Peake, or his son who appears to have lived in Charles County where our Matney side families settled shortly before 1700.

Children of Thomas and Elizabeth Mattingly were:
Thomas II, Julia and Cezar. We think the Matneys descend from Cezar. It is said in our histories that since Walter Peake was an attorney he helped Elizabeth and her children obtain the land due to them by their payment of fares to MD from England shortly before 1664. Thomas I died before this could be accomplished. They were Catholic. The Matneys became Methodist and Baptist, consistent with their rebel ways against the Mattinglys.

This information should probably be added to the charts on this site as it helps to pull many of these families together. There are other common families: Dents (Dant, Daft, Dart), Brewer, Cecil, Spalding, etc.

Always more to do in this business!
Norma

What a wonderful site.
I have learned more about my grandmother, Annie Elizabeth Peak who married Raymond Aloysisus Rhodes than I did while she was alive. She is a child of Tom Peak (How I wish she had been there to be included in this picture) What a nice picture! (I still have not found much on the Rhodes as how I link) I know there are a lot of Rhodes around Meade County where my granddad and Grandmother Peak-Rhodes lived but I have not been able to go back to PaPaw Rhodes fraternal side but did find some info on his Mother who was a Shelman from Breckinridge County, Ky. I would like for anyone who has information on brothers Raymond, Alex, Jim, Cate, Tim and sisters Mary and Tinte to E-Mail me. The sisters lived in Riverside California and I know little about them. The only thing I know is that Tinte married a Campbell. I only met the girls once but lived near Jim and Alex and lived close to my grandparents Raymond and Annie Elizabeth Peak-Rhodes at Payneville in Meade County and attended Meade High School.

What a great site! Beautifully organized and very informative. I have just begun research on the Peak(e) families in Scott and Franklin Counties, KY in hopes of finding a link to my Frances Peak(e) Dailey. My initial research on these Peak(e)families led me to Montgomery and St. Mary's Counties, MD where I found lots of Peak(e) information. Your site is extremely informative and puts these families and their stories in perspective. This is an excellent source that I will share with other Peak(e) researchers I come across. Thanks!

Hello;
I am a descendant of John Rhodes. His don Raymond A was my great-grand father and my grandfather was his son Robert Rhodes. I was just there for my Grandmothers (Elizabeth Rhodes the former Elizabeth Mudd)internment at St Marys.
I was told of your site as I was doing research for my lines. I would love to swap information with anyone that is also reasearching the Rhodes lines. My other surnames are Willett, Peake, Hardesty and Mudd.

Thanks for this site.!

Do you know of a Nancy Nevitt Peak(e)? Your page indicates a Mary Ann Peak of approximately the same age. It seems possible she may have used her mother's maiden name instead of Ann. I have seen a photo with written ID of this person - (Rosamilia's webpage - she also signed yer guestbook). Appreciate any further data you may have.

Whom did your Nancy Peak marry? My Nancy married William Beall Phillips. Their daughter Margaret Ellen Phillips was born in 1843 - when your Nancy would have been only 15. (Hey -- they married young in those days !!?) Margaret Ellen married David M. Beam, and they produced Jim Beam, which is my line.

If you care to collaborate, dismiss or otherwise comment on the above, I'd be glad to share more on where this Beam connection went. (based on your e-mail address, I'd guess you've probably got a good idea)

Thanks

I'm excited about finding your site. Excellent. Confirms information I have and helped me find that there was an intermarriage I didn't know about. I've looked for years for maiden name of Rhoda Peak's wife. I've been tracing the line of Francis and Bibiana but now find one of their descendants married a descendant of Kenellum. Thanks for all the work you put in!

I am very impressed with your research and sharing of this information! My parents were Charles A. Greenwell, born 9/29/1894 and died 9/8/1982, and Clara Genevieve "Genevieve" Medley, born 7/30/1910 and died 1/30/1996. My mother's parents were Charles Lee Medley, born 7/14/1874 and died 3/12/1952, and Anna Mae Peak, born 6/29/1884 and died 8/23/1934. I understand my grandmother had ten children, but all did not live beyond infancy or childhood. My mother, Rodman, Martin, Thomas and Charles lived to adulthood. If you would like to add this information to your research, please feel free to do so. I was first married (6/19/1954) to Daniel T. Short, born 5/13/1931 and died 7/15/1988. I married (5/25/1996) Raymond C. Tangney, born 11/20/1933. I was born 6/15/1934.

I was looking for Greenwell, and it led me to the Peake's. I have also looked for Medley and it has led me to the Peak's. I am so pleased that you shared this information.

Do you have a book?

Thanks for all the work you have done and for sharing it.
I was interested in your section, 11F3 The Hardin County
Peaks. I am a decendent of Patrick's son William Peak
who married Ann Frakes. William's son, Mordica, was
born 19 Apr 1831 in Hardin County and died 24 Apr 1885
in Adams County, Iowa. Mordica married Margaret Jane
Clayton in 1857 in McDonough County, Illinois. Their
son, Benjamin, was born 27 Oct 1857 in McDonough County,
Ill. and died 16 Dec 1938 in Union County, Iowa. Benjamin
was my grandfather. Mordica and Margaret had ten children.

Last year I was talking via phone to Sr. Jean Madeline, OSU, who residees at Mt. St. Joseph. Her given name was Mary Wilbie Peake, born 7/22/1915 in Holy Cross, KY. Her father was John Peake (b. 9/11/1882 Holy Cross - d. 9/30/1915 Holy Cross), son of William Peake and Nancy Clayton. John wife was Annie Nettie Medley (b. 12/4/1888). They were married on 11/11/1912. Annie Nettie Medley Peake remarried after John's death to Thomas Joseph Blanford (b. 1871-d.1944) Marriage date 1/5/1924. They had 2 children: Carolyn (b. 10/30/1924) and Janet (b. 12/6/1926) Sr. Jean has no idea how she fits in with the rest of the Peake clan, they never discussed that side of the family as she recalls. I told her I would try to help her out, but so far cannot connect. Can you help? Thank you. Ray Peake (rhpeake@aol.com)

As you can see I am the Jane Peak of this generation (although by marriage). My husband Michael and I have done the family geneology and have come to the same conclusions as you. Our only confusion is that church records at St. Martin in Flaherty,Ky list Benjamin Peak as the son of Charles Peak & Louise Edelin. We need to be able to explain this. Can you help?
Looking forward to hearing from you. I work at St. Martin of Tours in Louisville.

Delighted to find you (by way of Eastman's Newsletter. My search for the husband and maiden name of Sarah Margaret Peake who appears on the 1880 census of Cherokee County, Alabama and nowhere else, ever, is the local society joke. She appears as a 58 year old widow (?)living in the household of her "son-in-law" (actually known to me to be the husband of her granddaughter) the great grandaughter is also there, age 3. The younger people turn up in NC by 1891 when the great granddaughter marries my grandfather. I look forward to reading about the Maryland colonists and their possible migrations.

Fantastic job! Thanks for posting it. Together with other researchers, I am building a list of the descendats of Jonathan Culver - who was an early resident of New Haven KY. Some of the more common names besides Peak/Peake are Greenwell, Bryan, Thornsberry, Vittitow, Hagan, Masterson, Mouser, Nalley, and Wimsett/Wimsatt/Wimpsett. I am glad to share/trade information on these families.
