Lt. Francis Peabody1

M, #912, b. about 1612, d. 19 February 1697/98
Last Edited=13 September 2007
     Lt. Francis Peabody was born a 1612 at St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England.2,3 He was the son of John Paybody and Isabel Harper. Lt. Francis Peabody has also been reported to have been born in 1614 at St. Albans, Hertfordshire.4 He married Lydia (?) in 1638.2 He married Mary Foster, daughter of Reginald Foster and Judith (?), on 18 May 1654 at Framingham, Middlesex County, Massachusetts.2,5 Lt. Francis Peabody died on 19 Feb 1697/98 at Topsfield, Essex County, Massachusetts.6
     Francis immigrated to Ipswich in 1635 on the ship "Planter", whose master was Nicholas Trarice.7,4 Francis examined for immigration on 6 April 1635 at the age of 21. He came to New England in "The Planter," and he settled in Hampton in 1639. He was admitted as a freeman in 1642. In 1649 he sold his house and lot to Robert DRAKE of Exeter, the first of the DRAKE family in Hampton. Selling price: £76 13s (Do you wonder what the asking price was?). The PEABODYs then moved to Topsfield, Essex, Mass., where Francis eventually married Mary. The Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire (GDMNH) names 8 children recorded in Hampton (Dow named only 5, 4 of whom Dow says were Lydia's children recorded in Topsfield). GDMNH says that those recorded in Hampton (8) were evidently all Lydia's children, but that the Topsfield records (1658-1669) do not mention the mother's name. This is the latest word that we know about, the earlier Peabody Genealogy notwithstanding. More research is required. Additional source: Noyes/Libby/Davis, "Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire," (1939), pg. 535.8 He arrived with a certificate from the minister at St. Albans, County Herts., England.9 He lived at Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts, until 1639.3 He obtained a land grant from the town in Jun 1640 at Hampton, Old Norfolk County, Massachusetts Colony.10 Francis was elected a Selectman, in 1647 at Hampton, Old Norfolk County, Massachusetts Colony.11 In 1649 he sold his house and lot at Hampton, Old Norfolk County, Massachusetts Colony, to Robert DRAKE of Exeter for £76 13s .12 At a Hampton Town meeting on the 9th of March, 1663, ownership of shares in the cow common were researched and recorded. It was recorded in a table titled "Owners of the Shares in the Cow Common, March 23, 1663" that Robert Drake had obtained 3 shares bought of Francis Peabody.13
Lt. Francis Peabody was listed as a church member in 1684 in The Old Church, Topsfield, Essex County, Massachusetts.14 He made a will on 20 Jan 1695/96 at Topsfield, Essex County, Massachusetts.
