Royce, I think I can add a little more information to your family tree. I am also related to 3 Robert Peelles. So I am assuming they are the same as your three. You might also check the website of Horace Peele. It is full of invaluable information and he can provide you with the full tracing of your tree back to Lawrence Peele in 1601.

1. Lawrence Peelle, b.1601 in England and d. bet. 1656-1663 in Elizabeth Cittie Co., (Lower Norfolk), VA; married Mrs. Peelle who was b. ca. 1601.
2. Robert Peelle, b. 1635 in Elizabeth Cittie Co., VA, and d. after 1714 in Near Bennett's Creek, Nansemond Co., VA; married Mrs. Peelle who was b. ca. 1635 and married ca. 1655.
3. Robert Peelle, b. ca. 1657 in Lower Norfolk Co., VA., d. after 1749 in Near Sleepy Hole, Nansemond Co., VA; married Sarah Jarrat who was b. ca. 1657 in VA and married ca. 1678 and d. ca. 1703 in Near Sleepy Hole, Nansemond Co., VA
4. Robert Peelle, b. ca. 1681 in Near Sleepy Hole, Nansemond Co, VA, d. after 1/17/1756 in Upper Parish, Nansemond Co, VA; married to Judith Edwards, b. ca. 1688 in VA, and married ca. 1708 in VA., d. July 1756 in Near Rich Square, Northampton Co., N.C.
5. My family then goes on with a John Peelle marrying a Mary Norsworthy. I believe this is different from yours at this point.

I hope this will give you some information that you do not already have. You can also find out quite a bit of information on Lawrence Peele on Horace Peele's website ( Lawrence came to the Virginia colony in 1620 at the age of 19 and was one of only several hundred to survive the severe winters of 1620 and 1621 and the Indian massacres. Horace believes that all the Peele families in America are related to him, no matter how they spell their names.
