The Peckhams and the Clarke's are my husband's family and what I know so far follows. My Isaac Peckham predates yours, and had two wives. The line I am following is from the second wife, Jane Sisson. Please let me know if any of the following matches up with your information. Thanks, Nancy
Isaac, son of John Peckham and Sarah Newport was born April 11, 1688, died February 10, 1765. He was a farmer in Middletown, Rhode Island. He married (first), November 8, 1710, Barbara, born March 15, 1687, daughter of John and Rebecca Phillips. He married (second) Jane, born July 5, 1706, died September 25, 1778, daughter of Richard and Ann (Card) Sisson. Children by first wife: John, born May 1, 1712; Isaac, October 20, 1713; Sarah, October 6, 1715; Benjamin, October 19, 1717; Ruth, July 22, 1719; Clement, May 20, 1721; Stephen, March 6, 1723; Philip, July 11, 1725. Children by second wife: William, born October 1, 1727, Barbara, November 10, 1720; Anna, August 13, 1731; Mary, August 16, 1733; Elizabeth, October 26, 1735; Rachel, November 23, 1742, died young; Abigail, December 29, 1743, died young; Richard, October 8, 1745, died young.
Daughter: Elizabeth Florence married James Clarke
Although Florence's name is given in her husband's James probate records as "Florence" there is circumstantial evidence that her full name may have been Elizabeth Florence PECKHAM d/o Isaac PECKHAM and Jane SISSON. Elizabeth PECKHAM m. James CLARKE in Newport,RI on 11 Sep 1755 (IGI) . James CLARKE, s/o James and Florence named his son 'Isaac' who in turn named his son ' Isaac Peckham CLARKE' and his daughter 'Elizabeth Peckham CLARKE'. When using the IGI film # 184321 with a search on the children of James CLARKE and Elizabeth PECKHAM it comes up with John b. ca 1757 and James Jr. b. ca 1759. These dates and names correspond with the first two children of James and 'Florence'
