To all Pattee cousins - Re Peter’s identity…..There is NO evidence that Peter Pattee was Pierre Pety. All we have are similar names and (perhaps) close birth years, not enough for a genealogist to make an identification. If so, I would say Peter Pattee of Haverhill was the Peter Patee baptised at East Shefford, Berkshire, England 15 January 1646 to Humfrey and Mary as shown in the IGI (extracted from the parish registers – there are no other entries for this family). FYI - The Family History Library has a computer printout of births and christenings at the Threadneedle Street Huguenot Church, London, 1600-1840 [6 fiche, #6903811].
