1205 What worries me about this is that there were two Samuel Pease's about. One was a Boston Ship Captain, and then there was the Sam who went to NH and was killed by Indians in 1706.

Since it appears that her father Edward died in Hampton NH, and DNA signals of Sewall in my family, I tentatively accept this link.

1248 Yeardley is associated with her -- this was her first husband, according to the Barker pedigree; her maiden name was Vesey.

From: Charles Fuller
Subject: [SFK-UK] VESEY Family in East Anglia
Date: Mon, 12 Jan 2009 21:44:30 +0000

This information may help the VESEY researchers on the list. (I have no
interest in the family, I simply have a small genealogical library.)

1. "Norfolk Families" which was published in 1913 by Walter Rye simply
repeats part of the information in the pedigree in the 1563/1589/1613
Visitation for Norfolk (see page 294 of the Harleian Society book).

2. The Norfolk Visitation gives:
- Robert VESEY (a) married (?).
-- William VESEY of Hintlesham (b), son of (a), married Jane CUTLER of
--- Robert VESEY of Wickes Abbey Essex (c), son of (b) married Joan
CARDINALL of Bramley Essex.
---- William VESEY of Bedingham Norfolk, son of (c), married Mary
BEDINGFIELD at Hedenham Norfolk in 1590.
[It's quite probable that the will proved at the PCC on 28th. January
1577 for William VEYSEY under reference PROB11/59 is the will of (b),
and that the will proved on 27th. May 1590 for Johane VEYSEY under
reference PROB11/75 may be for his wife since the 1612 Visitation gives
William's wife as Jone rather than Jane.]

3. Volume 17 of the Suffolk Heraldry Society survey of the churches of
Suffolk (which was compiled in the late 1970s and early 1980s) lists a
coat of arms in Badingham Church, Suffolk. This relates to William
COTTON of Panfield, son and heir of Sigismund COTTON, who married Agnes
VESEY of Cambridgeshire. The VESEY part of the coat of arms is identical
to the one given in (2).

4. Volume 16 of the Suffolk Heraldry Society survey lists a coat of arms
in Bradwell St. Nicholas church. This relates to William VESEY who died
in 1644 aged 63. Again the coat of arms is identical to the one given in
(2). [William's will was proved on 25th. February 1645 at the PCC under
reference PROB11/192.]

5. Volume 11 of the Suffolk Heraldry Society survey lists a coat of arms
in Whatfield St. Margaret church. This relates to William VESEY who died
on 21st. June 1699 aged 50, and to his wife Elizabeth. A second coat
contains the arms of the VESEY family and possibly the CLARKE family.
[The SFHS Burial Index indicates that this family had links with Weeley
in Essex. William's will was proved on 23rd. December 1700 at the PCC
under reference PROB11/458.]

6. Volume 29 of the Suffolk Heraldry Society survey lists a coat of arms
in Witnesham St. Mary. This relates to the Reverend Charles BEAUMONT,
Rector of the parish, who died in November 1756 aged 45. His wife
Elizabeth died 24th. September 1791 aged 77. "N.B. Charles Beaumont, the
husband of Elizabeth VESEY co-heiress of Thomas VESEY of Sproughton,
was a great-grandson of John BEAUMONT, baptised at Bildeston 13th.
October 1623 and died at Bildeston 1681. He married Anne, daughter of
William MANN of Hitcham - East Anglian Notes and Queries, old series, I
14, new series IV 47/48."

7. Volume 27 of the Suffolk Heraldry Society survey lists a coat of arms
in Sibton St. Peter. This relates to "Thomas CHAPMAN alias BARKER
esquire who died 27th. January 1642, also Mary his wife, who "died more
than 2 years before her husband". Edmond CHAPMAN alias BARKER, his
father married Maryan daughter and sole heir of George VERSEY of
Blythburgh, Suffolk."
- There are also burials at Peasenhall for the CHAPMAN alias BARKER family.
- The will of Edmond CHAPMAN alias BARKER of Sibton was proved in 1574
and is available from Ipswich RO under references R25/261 and W23/28.

8. Volume 30 of the Suffolk Heraldry Society survey lists a coat of arms
in Coddenham St. Mary but does not give any information as to whom the
arms belong.

9. Volume 6 of the Suffolk Heraldry Society survey lists 3 sets of coats
of arms in Hintlesham:
- Charles VESEY of Hintlesham Priory, whose wife was Elizabeth, eldest
daughter of Edward D'OYLEY of Shotesham Norfolk, who died 2nd. June
1657. [This Charles was the 5th. son of William of Bedingham Norfolk.
- Thomas VESEY, son of Charles VESEY, who married [Mary] the daughter of
Thomas BULL [in 1630 at Flowton] by whom he had 6 sons and 3 daughters.
- "Thomas VESEY died 21st. April 1736 aged 54. Elizabeth his wife died
26th. April 1716 aged 24. N.B. Thomas VESEY of Sproughton Suffolk
married Elizabeth daughter of Edmund HARVEY of Wickham Skeith Suffolk"
[at Ipswich St. Matthew in 1711].

10. These wills are probably part of the picture as well:
- Veysye, William, gentleman, of Hintlesham, Suffolk 1616 Reference NCC,
will register, Sayer, 80 (Held at Norwich).
- Vesey, Thomas Augustine, gentleman, of Hintlesham, Suffolk 1805
Reference NCC, will register, West, 4 (Held at Norwich).

The comments in [] brackets are my own additions.

Vesey, Marion (I6749)
1249 [courtesy of Mr Harold Mcpheeters]

There is probably a connection to the Sea Captain, Archibald Mcphaedris who came to Boston about 1709, but its not clear. {DD note: I have come upon secondary sources that claim that John Mcpheadris of New York, who married Helen Johson in 1712 is brother of Archibald of Portsmouth. Let me point out too that in the deeds of Archibald of Portsmouth there is mention of the Casco projects -- Archibald was somehow involved there -- one could interpret this as where John is, a young nephew or cousin of Archibald?].

The Maine McPheters family (from my research) descended from a John McPhetres (whose name appears in many variant spellings) who first came to the shores of the Colonies as a seaman in the British Royal Navy around 1725. He later (Fall 1729) returned with his wife and some family on a ship that (according to legend) was headed from Northern Ireland (Belfast) to the Pennsylvania Colony where several other Presbyterian Scots-Irish settlers had gone and found refuge from difficulties with the Church of England. A few other young McPheeters families had already gone there in the early 1720s and settled in the "Irish Settlement" in the areas of Lancaster and Chester Counties of the Pennsylvania Colony.

But this ship was blown off course in a storm and landed late in the fall in the harbor of the Kennebec River Estuary of what is now the State of Maine, but was then the Massachusetts Bay Colony. As the party and crew debated whether to go on to seek Pennsylvania or make camp there for the Winter, a British Man '0 War appeared with a Ca pt. David Dunbar, who explained that he was Surveyor for the King to seek sturdy pine masts for British Navy ships and for which he had been promised a Colony of his own. He urged the colonists to remain there and be the first residents of his new Colony. I found a copy of a petition dated in late 1729 from those colonists, including John McPheters, to Ca pt. Dunbar asking him to make haste to get the official declaration of his "Colony of Georgia" so they could be clearing their lands and getting ready to plant crops when Spring arrived. (This surprised me since this Colony of Georgia, where I live, was not created until 1733). But apparently, Capt. Dunbar was mistaken orthe Admiralty snookered him out of his Colony. In any case, the colonists decided to remain there and set up cabins on Arrowsic Island in Kennebec River estuary. John and Isabella (Stinson) McPheters raised ten children there.

According to the Scotch-irish list, there is this comment which may be relevant

The McPhedris family came from Millnagowan: Gilbert was living there in 1613. In 1618 he leased about 200 acres which he left to his wife Margaret Cathcart when he died and then his son William. In the Hearth Money rolls for 1669 Archibald McPhedris was the owner of a large home with 3 hearths. For this period it was a very large house.

I note that there are several Mcfadrish that appear in Scotland ca 1700.

See: http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/Scotch-Irish/2001-08/0997664779

Note: There is a Loughgeil McPhedris family, one of whom. Capt. William, was prominent in the 1641 uprisings, and was deposed, see 1641.tcd.ie


The years 1718 and 1719 at Merrymeeting Bay
In a previous chapter the voyage of the shipMaccallum" was described, and it was made evident that her passengers from Londonderry settledon lands at the Eastward. These lands skirted alarge body of water, known as Merrymeeting Bay,which is formed by the Androscoggin River entering the Kennebec. Southack s map, covering thisregion, bears the inscription, "An actual survey ofthe sea coast from New York to the I. Cape Briton. . . by Capt. Cyprian Southack. Printed and sold by Wm. Herbert, London Bridge & Rob4 Sayer. . . Fleet Street. " On the land between Brunswick and Maquoit Bay there is an inscription which states that in the years 1718, 1719 and 1720 five hundred emigrants from Ireland had come to settle ; the inscription reads :
"Kennebeck River very Longstrong Tydes with all its branches Trade mostly is as yet Lumber Fish small matter came from the Kingdom of Ireland within three Year: 1720 five Hundred Inhabitants and made new Settlements for Farming and Lumber."
In the English Pilot, Part IV, London, 1737, the map described as "The Harbour of Casco Bay, ByC yprian Southicke," indicates a church and several houses between Maquoit Bay and the Androscoggin River. The words "Irish new settlement "show the character of the inhabitants.
By the depositions of David Dunning, Jane McFadden, and her son Andrew, and John McPhetre,we learn that some of the people who settled here in 1718 "removed from Ireland to Boston, from Boston down to Kennebec River and up Merrymeeting Bay to a place called Cathance."
A summary of these depositions follows :

David Dunning, gentleman, of Brunswick, deposed October 8, 1767, that on or about the year 1718 he came first to Boston, and in the same vessel with Andrew McFadden and his wife (now widow). Soon after they came down together in the same vessel to the eastern country, and lived in Brunswickever since 1718.

Jane McFadden of Georgetown, aged about eighty-two, deposed June 19, 1766, that she with her late husband, Andrew McFadden, lived in the town of Garvo [Garvagh], County Derry, on the Bann Water, Ireland, at a place called Summersett. About forty-six years ago they removed from Ireland to Boston, from Boston down to the Kennebec River and up Merrymeeting Bay to a place called Cathance Point.

Andrew McFadden of Georgetown, aged fifty three,deposed June 22, 1768, that he was a son of the above Andrew and Jane. Daniel McFadden of Georgetown, aged forty-six, made a similar deposition. Other testimony shows that Andrew and Jane had a daughter between Andrew and Daniel, born on the Kennebec River. They christened her Summersett.

John McPhetre of Georgetown, aged above sixty, deposed June 22, 1768, that he knew Summersett place on the Bann Water, for he lived within about five miles of it.

Colonel David Dunning was the son of Andrew Dunning, who was born in 1664, and came with his wife, Susan Bond, to the lower Kennebec, knownthen as Georgetown in Maine. After a year Andrew settled at Maquoit in Brunswick. He was a blacksmith, and died January 16, 1736, aged 72 years. Hischildren were James, Andrew, Eobert, William and David. He and Andrew McFadden evidently were able, thrifty settlers, not unlike those led by McGregor, and they also were from the Bann Valley.
