Peter as he was known, came from the Palatinate, Rhine section of Germany. He sailed with his father who can be seen on board the ship "Two Brothers" John Peter Blom, Sr. and son J. Peter Blom. It was commanded by Thomas Arnot, and sailed from Rotterdam to Cowes, England, landing on Friday the 15 of September 1752 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, America. This record can be seen on pg 478 "Pennsylvania German Pioneers", by Ralph Beaver Strassburger. Sometime after his first wife Eva died in 1796 he began using the more American form of his name Bloom. His children also all seem to have dropped the more German forms of spelling for both first and last names.

It has been stated that 4 brothers sailed on this ship to America. I am not sure of this. There may have been 4 passengers from this family. The father John Peter Sr. may have died on board, his son Peter's only child to claim to have been born in Germany was Wilhelm "William" Blum/Bloom Sr. and would have been an infant at the time. The four passengers could have then been Peter Sr., Peter Jr. his wife Eva and infant son William.
