my branch comes from the same villages as the well documented Pegges which include Katherine (the slapper) Pegge. However I've not yet found a direct link in, what I have found is a dozen or so surviving sons at various generations that could have led to my branch and also to Daniel, but no luck yet.
The period we're looking at is really tough over here as it relates to the Civil War and Commonwealth, a point at which there are many gaps in the records. Interestingly the Peggs were on both side, obviously Katherines lot were pretty hardcore Royalist, but also Edward Pegg was a leading protestant/parliamentatrian in Derbyshire so we were on both sides.
What is your Lincolnshire ref. I will puruse it so the more details you can provide, the better. I seem to recall it was somewhere like Market Deeping. However I would say that I've found no Peggs of real substance outside the Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire, Staffordshire corner other than the substantial group in Norfolk.
The area of Derbyshire we're dealing with is the north side of the Trent vally and the majority of buildings are brick from the mid 1600's onwards so there is no specific corrolation between the fen area and the architecture. I know that emigrating quakers were often rostered as coming from there departure port, (Boston is in Lincolnshire).
I'm also intrigued that Derbyshire was the early heartland of Quakerism in this period, so we get Quakers, Bricks, and wealthy influential Peggs all in one place. I assume Daniel would be from a pretty prosperous background to get hold of 600 acres on arrival. Also he seems to have bought land in an area frequented by East Midland Quakers (see my other message from ytesterday)
Anyway your daniel is a specific target of my snooping around various libraries so i'll post as soon as I find anything.
Thanks for the quick reply, and check out the other messages there are some interesting really early references which aren't tied to anything yet but give me a few targets, -cheers
