bullet  General Notes:

The PEGG genealogy has been much confused by various attempts at litigation by various heirs for over a century in an attempt to claim a fortune based on the value of land owned by Daniel Pegg I, and/or Daniel Pegg III. The ancestry detailed here attempts to choose the most supportable version based on documentation and thus is a conglomeration of several.

That Daniel Pegg who died in 1702 is the immigrant ancestor is consistent. However, whether he had 2 or 3 wives is the first problem. One school claims the first as Martha Rebecca Allen while another indicates that Rebecca is a previous wife to Martha Allen. We have opted for the 3 wife version until proven otherwise. Again, the last wife as Barbara Jones is consistent. Since she is our ancestor, we won't dwell on the other two.

The analyses by others which follow do a fine job of citing the sources, however the list of children from his will are:
Elizabeth (under 21 at time will was written)
Jane
Nathan (called youngest son and also under 21)
Elias (also to receive considerable assets at age "ye age 21")
Daniel Pegg (called eldest son)

The following information was attached to an e-mail dated 9 March 1999 from Carolyn Westberry to Ronald Whitney.

The Pegg Family

By all accounts, the Pegg family is of English origins. The Descendants of William Wolf and Mary Magdalene Bewers Wolf, GG929.2W832WX, 1988 as obtained from the Ft Wayne Public Library contains notes on the Pegg ancestry which are of interest even though our Peggs were in America earlier than those listed in this text. "William Pegg of St Ives, Huntingtonshire, England signed a document on Nov 19, 1719, arranging to go to Maryland in the British colonies. At the time of signing he was nineteen years of age, making the date of his birth at 1700. He had been born in the reign of William and Mary II, and left his native land during the reign of George I. St Ives, which is known to all children because of the nursery rhyme...is in Cromwell country and since there is record of a Pegg being a pikeman in Cromwell's army, one might assume that the family had been of that political persuasion. A pikeman was a soldier armed with a long wooden shaft with a pointed steel head....Financially it turned out not to be a rewarding stand to take, and may have some bearing on the fact that the William Pegg who, two or three generations later, was migrating to Maryland was a very poor man. About 1743 he was buying land in Kent Co. Delaware, and records now in the courthouse at Dover show that more or less on the eve of our American Revolution, he was selling his land piecemeal....It is interesting to note that the other Peggs of Derbyshire were Royalists, and prospered after the restoration of Charles II. Catherine Pegge, daughter of Sir Thomas Pegge, was one of the mistresses of Charles II, and mother of his son Charles Fitz Charles....The children of the emigrant William Pegg and his first wife Margaret seem to have been Samuel, Mary, Valentine, Martin and the twins James and John. Of these, Samuel settled in South Carolina, Mary married into the Foote family, Valentine and Martin, who were Nicholites in religion, moved to Guilford Co., North Carolina. A John Pegg fought in the Revolutionary War."

Clerissa Tatterson's work on the Poland/Poling/Polen families stated that Nathaniel Polen Sr of Harrison Co Oh was a twin to Wm Polen of Jefferson Co Oh. The twins are listed as the sons of Wm and Hannah (Pegg) Polen and are said to have been born in Monmouth Co NJ in 1769. They had an older sister named Sarah by some references and Elizabeth by others. Hannah is said to have died at the birth of her twins and their father took them all to Loudon Co Va to the home of his father (claimed by Mrs. Tatterson to have been Samuel). The father Wm died at a young age in Loudon Co (Tatterson) and the children lived with their gf Samuel for several years but were later adopted into other families due to Samuel's advancing age (Tatterson). The twins were warded to their Uncle Nathaniel Pegg and later inherited his farm. This court order is of record in Loudon Co Va and does then confirm that their mother was nee Pegg.

Nathaniel Pegg's will is dated 2 Sep 1801 and named his nephews to inherit his estate but also designated portions of his possessions to go to his brothers. The named brothers in that will are in parallel to the listing of Peggs presented in the following research and thus is additional proof of the lineage of our ancestor Hannah (Pegg) Polen.

Barbara Kehl of 15 N 600 West Valparasio, Indiana received a letter from Betty Barnhill of 103-5301 46th Ave Red Deer Alberta T4N 3N3 dated 10 Aug 1990. Mrs. Barnhill's research provided her with a letter written by a Mr. Duvall to his Uncle Lee Chambers (undated) and the back of that letter contained the chart of the Pegg family. This chart was made due to a law suit regarding abandoned land by the Peggs when they moved west from Philadelphia. General Electric took this land as a plant construction site without ever making payment to the Peggs. Daniel Pegg III was in Bucks Co Pa in 1790 but gone by 1800 and it is thought that his land was the property in question. The Chambers Family Association has a file on the Pegg estate reclamation in which the earliest date is a letter of 12 Oct 1902 and the latest 25 Nov 1916.

The chart as preserved is confusing but combined with the known information on the Peggs gives an excellent documentation of our family line for this branch. Of specific interest to us is the listing on the original chart which shows Hannah Pegg as the d/o Nathan and Mary (Park Heath) Pegg, "married a Polen". This parallels the name of the m/o Nathaniel Polen Sr of Harrison Co Oh as presented in the numerous researches of the Polen ancestry.

MISCELLANEOUS PEGG REFERENCES

Elias and Benjamin Pegg, probably brothers, served in the Revolution; soon after 1800 went to Jefferson Co Oh. Benjamin ended up in Miami Co Oh where he died. He is known to have a daughter who resided in that area which probably explains his move there at an elderly age. Elias ended up in Franklin Co Oh around Columbus. Samuel Pegg of Monroe Co Oh could have been a brother or son of one of the above men.

There were Pegg families in SC by 1680

The 1800 Pa census index shows Conrad, Isaac, Joseph, Samuel and Wm Pegg all in Northumberland Co. Conrad was in Augusta Twp, Isaac and Joseph in Shamokin Twp and Samuel and Wm in Derry Twp. By 1810 the only Pegg in Pa was William who r in Derry Twp of Northumberland Co.

there are some sources that state Nathaniel Pegg died 25 Apr 1698; others list this as his date of birth. Only known birth dates for his children are 1725 for Daniel III and the supposed ca 1745 for Hannah. More contemporary research by the Pegg family leans closer to 1755 for her birth which would certainly run a long gamut of child bearing years from the birth of Daniel III in 1725. In any event, it certainly seems that Nathan/Nathaniel Pegg was b 1698 and did not die that year inspite of the many references.


SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS by Dick Lewis

Annals of Philadelphia, and Pennsylvania, In The Olden Time being a collection of Memoirs, Anecdotes, and Incidents, and of the Earliest Settlements of the Inland Part of Pennsylvania; by John F. Watson, Enlarged with many revisions and additions by Willis P. Hazard, Three Volumes, 1905 (note this author was unawareof the death of Daniel Pegg Sr in 1702/3)

Vol I, pg 302 Pegg's Run, formerly the Cohoquinoque, was the site of the present Willow street. The reason why so many leather dressers are located on it, and near it, is, that before Pegg's Run was culverted tanners and leather-dressers sought that neighborhood in order to discharge their dyes and other liquids into the creek; and subsequently, when the culvert was built, they obtained entrances into it. In consequence of this advantage the ground in that neighborhood was sought by leather-dressers; and when a fashion in some lines of business is established, it is very hard to break it.

Ibid pg 439 The name of Pegg's run was derived from Daniel Pegg, a Friend, who, in 1686 acquired the three hundred and fifty acres of Jurian Hartsfelder's patent of the year 1676. He therefore once possessed nearly all of the Northern Liberties south of Cohocksinc creek, in their primitive state of woody waste. He appears to have sold about one hundred and fifty acres of the northern part to Coates......the value of this farm in primitive days is shown in a letter of Jonathan Dickinson's, of December, 1715 saying, 'he can buy Daniel Pegg's land fronting the Delaware, and lying in N. Liberty Corporation, at 50s. per acre, having thereon a well built brick house, a piece of six to eight acres of meadow...' In the year 1729 Daniel Pegg advertised his land for sale, and then he described it thus, viz. 'to be sold or let, by Daniel Pegg, at the great brick house at the north end of Philadelphia, thirty acres of upland, meadow ground and marsh'. The house, about the period of the Revolution, was called 'the Dutch House' both because its form was peculiar, and specially because it had long been noted as a place for holding Dutch dances called hupesaw - a whirling dance in waltz style. In 1724 there was erected on his former premises the first powder house ever erected in Philadelphia.....

Ibid pg 441 I t appears he must have had at least two wives before the widow Sarah, mentioned in his will; for I found his name as marrried on the 28th of 2d mo., 1686, to Martha Allen, at her father Samuel Allen's house, at Neshamina, in the presence of twenty-two signing witnesses and again in 1691 he marries, at Friends' Meeting in Philadelphia, Barbara Jones. His brief history shows the vicissitudes of human affairs: Possessed of the fee simple of three hundred and fifty acres of now invaluable building lots, he left no rich heirs; and, the possessor of three wives or more, he left no male issue to keep up his name, even in our City Directory! It appears, by the letter of Secretary Peters, of 1749, that the heirs of D. Pegg then appeared to make a partition. He left an only daughter.

Pg 32: Samuel Allen, shoemaker of Chew Magna, Somersetshire, and F.P. of 2000 acres, was on the "Bristol Factor" with his wife Mary and children Priscilla, Martha, Ann, Sarah and Samuel....

Pg 33 apparently also aboard the "Bristol Factor" was John Bezer, maltster of Bishops Canning, Wiltshire...who brought with him as indentured servants Joseph Cloud and Richard and Mary Farr...Richard Farr was free by 1686 when he was a juryman at Chester Court and was constable for Concord Twp in 1697. Chester Court Records 75, 404. In 1702 he and his wife granted their rights to their headland to Joseph Cloud. He was probably the son of William Cloud, for whom see Note 120...Nathaniel Evans brought in as servants (note previous entry listed Nathaniel Evans, and probably his daughter Elizabeth who later m John Child, must have been on this ship; both Allen and Evans were jurymen at Upland Court 14 Mar 1681/2 and no other ships from Bristol came to Delaware until sumer) in the year 1681 Nathaniel Parke and hiw wife Elizabeth, and their son-in-law (probably stepson) John Martin. Pennsylvania Archives, 2nd Series, XIX 482. Parke was free by 7 m 1686 when he was named supervisor of highways for Concord. See also Smith, Delaware County, 490.

Ibid pg 64. The Submission, James Settle, master, from Liverpool....was Ellis Jones aged 45 from Denby or Flint...with him came his wife Jane, aged 40, and children Barbara 13, Dorothy 10, Isaac 4 mos and Mary Jones 12. They were servants to the Proprietor; Ellis Jones was Penn's miller. Probably for his services he was granted a warrant for a city lot 17 4 m 1683 and acquired land in Chester Co. PMHB, VIII, 95, Pennsylvania Archives, 3rd Series, II, 730; Chester Court Records 238.

Ibid pg 170 Ellis Jones and his Wife Came from Wales in the Ship Submission at the time aforesaid with theire Children Rebecka, Dorothy, Mary, Isaac Jones - all of them Servants to govener Penn. (sic)

Ibid "The Sailing of the Ship Submission in the year 1682, with a true copy of the vessel's log, L Taylor Dickson: The log of the ship Submission of which the following is a copy, commences the fourth day of the week, sixth day of the seventh month (September) and ends of the seventh day of the week, the twenty-first day of the eighth month, 1682. The vessel at this day being near the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, which appears by the entry made on the nineteenth day of October, at which time the odor from the pines was noticed, 'supposing ourselves not to be within 80 leagues'. Phineas Pemberton in his record states that they arrived in the Choptank, Maryland, on the second day of ninth month, 1682, thus making the voyage in fifty-eight days from port to port, the last days of passage not being recorded in the log. As Captain Settle was bound for another port, and the weather being overcast, it is highly probable that upon the twenty-first day of the seventh month he did not know where he was, and therefore did not complete the log. Many of the passengers remained in Maryland for a considerable time (some of them married there), and then walked to Appoquinimink, the lowest section of New Castle County, about forty miles from the place of landing, and twenty miles south of the established town of New Castle...as James Harrison, Phineas Pemberton, James Clayton, Randle Blackshaw and Ellis Jones with their families were residents of Bucks County in 1684, it is evident that they did not remain in the lower country long.

Ibid pgs 189 and fwd are copies of Capt Settle's logs. Page 190 lists the passengers where we find Ellis Jones 45, Barbary Jones 13, Mary Jones 12 1/2, Jane Jones 40, Dorothy Jones 10, Isaac Jones 4 months and Rebeckah Winn 20, Jane Mode 15, and Marjory Mode 11 1/2 all as servants.

Conclusion:

It seems doubtless that Hannah (Pegg) Polen was our ancestor and the d/o Nathan and Mary (Park Heath) Pegg. Nathan was probably fully named Nathaniel Pegg. The ancestry of Mary Park Heath Polen is not known but apparently she was a widow of a Mr. Heath and was originally nee Park? We have no further information and have not attempted to pursue this line.

It also seems doubtless that the Peggs were in Hunterdon Co NJ when their daughter Hannah was growing up which may lend some support to Mrs. Tatterson's theory that the twins Nathaniel and William were born there. It still must be remembered that the migratory route from NJ to Loudon Co Va was quite common and a relatively easy move for the time and place.

The only thing that is truly certain is that genealogy always contains a certain amount of uncertainty!
