Genealogical History of the Descendants of Joseph Peck, who Emigrated with his Family to this Country in 1638, by Ira B. Peck (Boston, 1868), vi + 442 pages (including 41 pages of index).  The Digital Edition, published on CD-ROM, © October 2009.

Joseph Peck, the emigrant ancestor of the Massachusetts Pecks, “now a numerous and extensive race scattered throughout the United States, its Territories, the British Provinces, and the Canadas,” was baptized in Beccles, Suffolk County, England, April 30, 1587.  He was the son of Robert Peck, and a descendant in the twenty-first generation of John Peck, of Belton, Yorkshire. In 1638, he and other puritans, with his brother Robert Peck, their pastor, fled from the persecutions of the church to Hingham, Massachusetts.

His genealogical history and that of his six sons extends (in male lines) through the eighth generation, encompassing about eleven thousand descendants.

In addition, as stated on the title page, the volume contains “records of [Joseph’s] father’s and grandfather’s families in England with the pedigree extending back from son to father for twenty generations; with their coat of arms and copies of wills; also an appendix giving an account of the Boston and Hingham Pecks, the descendants of John Peck of Mendon, Mass., Deacon Paul Peck of Hartford, Deacon William and Henry of New Haven, and Joseph of Milford, Conn., with portraits of distinguished persons from steel engravings.”

Collateral names: ALLEN, BARNEY, BLISS, BOWEN, BROWN, CARPENTER, CLARK, DAVIS, FULLER, HUNT, MARTIN, PIERCE, SMITH, and WHEELER.  For a list of all the descendants and collateral families, see the on-line index.
