Lt. John Peckham American Revolution 1777

Lt. John Peckham was 1st Lieut. of the Chester Galley in Maryland at the outset of the Revolution. He was first in command under Capt. Comm. Thomas Coursey. Coursey was from an ancient family of Talbot County ,Md. and all the marines on board were from the ancient families of Prince Georges County,Maryland. Was this John Peckham from the Rhode Island branch or was he from another line? Is there an early naval tradition amongst the Peckhams of America?.
