| Peters Family Histories
in Canada and the U.S. (1600's to the present)
|| | ||
There are PETERS families in New Brunswick that are not connected to the families of Samuel and Mary Peters or Dr.
Charles Peters, and there are PETERS individuals/families I have not been able to connect anywhere yet. The following
is a list (which will grow!) of "other" PETERS in New Brunswick. If anyone can provide more information about these
families, please let me know and I will post the information here.
William PETERS (? - 1819)
A William Peters of St. John, New Brunswick drowned 20 September 1819 when he was a passenger in the Brig Brutus when it was wrecked on Cape Cod. A lengthy article in the Royal Gazette 26 October 1819 describes the wreck and says William Peters "left a wife and two children". There are estate administration papers dated 18 October 1819 which may be related - they name a William Peters of St. John, grocer, and his widow Mary PETERS. I have not been able to link this William and Mary Peters to a known Peters family line and have not been able to determine the names of the two children.
Thomas William PETERS (abt 1803/04 - ?) m. Hannah TOWNSEND (abt 1808 - ?)
There appear to be two different Thomas William Peters born about the same time in New Brunswick. One is a son of William Peters and Charlotte Hain[e]s, and the other, who married Hannah Townsend, we can't place yet. Who are his parents? Thomas W. and Hannah had at least one child, Thomas William Robert PETERS (abt 1828 - 1902).
