Pease History Information

In volume iii. page 30, N. E. Hist. and Gen. Reg., there is mention of John Pease, aged 27, and Robert Pease, aged 27, who came from Ipswich, England, to Boston, on board the ship Francis, in April, 1634, and removed to Salem, where they were known to have been in 1637.

It was assumed that John was ancestor of the families embraced in the account which was published in that volume, and his name was accordingly placed at the head. But further research and more reflection have served to transfer this honor to Robert.

Mr. Somerby, to whom much is due for his researches in England, writes under date of June 6, 1854, that while making some genealogical investigations in Essex, he met with the will of Robert Pease, of Great Baddow, and considering it worth the trouble, he visited that place and made extracts from the parish register.

Robert Pease of Great Baddow, County Essex, Locksmith. Will dated May 10, 1623. Mentions his wife Margaret, sons Robert and John, daughter Elizabeth, son-in-law Abraham Page, and brother-in-law Francis King. Will proved June 12, 1623.

From a long list of baptisms, marriages and burials, dating from 1540 to 1623, the following have been selected :—

John, son of Robert Pease, baptized May 24, 1593.
John, infant son of Robert Pease, buried January 10, 1599.
John, son of Robert Pease, baptized November 20, 1608.

There is no record of the baptism of Robert, the other son mentioned in the will, and Mr. Somerby thinks he must have been baptized in some other parish.

It would be imprudent to assert positively that the John and Robert whose names are in the will, are the same who came in the Francis; but it seems not improbable that Great Baddow is the locality, and the family of Robert Pease that to which the ancestry of the family may be traced.

Great Baddow is in what is called the Hundred of Chelmsford, about thirty miles north-east from London, on the thoroughfare to Ipswich, the most convenient place of embarkation from that neighborhood, and old Norfolk and Essex here were settled chiefly by people from counties of the same name in England.
