Thanks for the interest in the Peggs of Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire. My e-mail address is I guess the Peeg name is common in the upper midlands. I read somewhere that today it occurs most in Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire. As i mentioned earlier, I am at a loss taking the Pegg or Peggs line back further than a marriage of Samuel Pegg in 1804. I have found the birth of a Samuel Peggs in the Swavesey, Cambs Parish Register in 1785, which would make him around 19 at the wedding. The father of this Samuel was William Peggs, who married Sarah Amshill in 1760 in Swavesey. Before this I see no Peggs in the Swavesey register. I have two clues. A witness at the wedding in 1804 was a John Pegg (a brother or maybe the father). I can't see him in the Swavesey Records. Also Samuel died young in 1809, and his widow Sarah remarried and moved to St Ives, Hunts. I'm wondering if St Ives was connections to the family. I have ordered the St Ives Records on CD but it hasn't arrived yet. really appreciate any help I can get on this one. Regards David
