      "Frederick S. Peck -- -- On May 22, 1639, the Great and General Court of
      Massachusetts Bay Colony met at Boston, electing John Winthrop governor,and
      other Colonial officers. The name of Mr. Joseph Peck, of Hingham, standsat
      the head of the list of deputies, twenty-eight in number, who met to make
      Puritan laws for a Puritan Colony. In that historic assembly oflegislators
      were John Endicott, Richard Bellingham, Simon Bradstreet, IsrealStoughton,
      and Richard Saltonstall, while Humphrey Atherton, noted in Rhode Island
      history, Robert Keayne, Thomas Mayhew, Simon Willard, Edward Rawson,William
      Hawthorne, and others, were of the legislative group that were destined to
      win high honors in civil life in the Bay Colony. On May 13, 1640, theGreat
      Court met at Boston and again the name of Mr. Joseph Peck leads the
      deputies, now thirty-one in number. Of this number, twenty-three bear the
      title 'Mr.' , four are captians, one lieutenant, one ensign, and two carry
      no title. In 1641 the General Court of Elections met at Boston, on January
      2, and Mr. Joseph Peck is still a deputy from Hingham, with distinguished
      associates, over whom Richard Bellingham was chosen as governor. Amongthem
      are William Carpenter, Henry Smith, William Cheesbrough, Alexander
      Winchester, Stephen Paine, and others, who, in 1641, through the agency of
      Captain Myles Standish and Mr. John Browne, purchased a township of land,
      eight miles square, of Massossoit, and later called Rehoboth.
      Mr. Joseph Peck, who, with his brother, Rev. Robert Peck, Jr., were the
      founders of the Peck family in America, was the son of Robert Peck, a
      resident of Suffolk county, England. The son Joseph was baptized inBeccles,
      Suffolk county, April 30, 1587. Robert Peck, Jr., received his Master's
      degree at Cambridge University in 1602; was a Puritan minister in Hingham,
      England, and with his brother Joseph, came to New England in 1638,settling
      at Hingham, in the Bay Colony, where English settlers of Norfolk countyhad
      founded a new Hingham on the Bay coast. Robert and Joseph took thefreeman's
      oath, March 13, 1638-39, and Robert was ordained teacher of the church at
      Hingham, Mass., 1639. On October 27, 1641, Robert, his wife and son,Joseph,
      embarked from Boston from his native land, having been invited, saysCotton
      Mather, to renew his pastoral office over the Puritan Church in Hingham,
      England, 'where he is greatly serviceable for the good of the Church'. He
      died in 1656, in the midst of a loved and beloved people.
      Concerning Mr. Joseph Peck and his family, Mr. David Cushing, town clerkof
      Hingham, Mass., has this record: 'Mr. Joseph Peck and his wife and three
      sons and daughter, and two men servants, and three maid servants, camefrom
      old Hingham and settled at New Hingham."
