Capt Samuel Peck
Birth: Oct. 11, 1672
Rehoboth
Bristol County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Jun. 9, 1736
Rehoboth
Bristol County
Massachusetts, USA

Capt. Samuel Peck was the son of Joseph Peck Jr and his wife Hannah Playford Peck. He married Rachel Pierce daughter of Ephraim and Hannah Holbrook Pierce and produced 6 children, but only 4 lived to maturity. They were Hannah, Rachel, Samuel and Abiezer. Except for Rachel, who married Lt. Simon John Dillis, they may be buried at Peck Yard. The country club was undoubtedly Capt. Peck's property in 1700. He wrote a will on May 1, 1736 leaving a significant estate to his children. He died June 9, 1736 at 64. His wife Rachel died Nov. 12, 1756 at 81. See Ira Peck's, "Peck Family Book" p. 34, for the artistic carving and inscription on his tombstone. The likeness at right was drawn by Lewis Peck Childs 1813-1874 #24559314. The stone is said to have been brought from England and carved by George Allen. Vince Luti, noted anthropologist, believes it to be the best stone carving example in New England.
