I am descended from a Jesse Peacock who married Ann Garter in Diddington, Huntingdonshire, England in the 1780s, I think (don't have my notes right in front of me). Their daughter Ann was born 1802 in Tilbrook in Bedfordshire, later married John Abraham and they lived in Brampton in Hunts, as did her mother Ann Garter Peacock, who lived to be over 100 and is buried in the Brampton churchyard.

Ias Jesse Peacock a relative of William Peacock...

I may be from William, b. c. 1790s in Tilbrook, who married c. 1815 Elizabeth....... from Buckden, Hunts., who then lived in Spaldwick, Hunts., where they had children, including possibly my John, b.c. 1829.

John came to the USA in about 1853, married another English immigrant, Levina Culley, from Nottinghamshire, and they had several children, and thru then have over 100 descendants in the USA today.

Anyone with info on the Peacocks in these locations is welcome to share info with me if they wish. Thank Yout!

Yes, Jesse and Ann Peacock did have a son William, baptized 20 September 1795 in Tilbrook, but I don't know anything else about him. Jesse also had brothers John (b. 1764) and William (b. 1774) who lived in Tilbrook - again I don't know anything else about them! Hope this helps a little. Len

I have looked in the 1841, 1851 and 1861 censuses of Hunts on the Ancestry.com site, using the free access at my local library... that led me to John Peacock, b. 1829 in Spaldwick, Hunts, and to his parents William and Elizabeth Peacock... the 1851 gives the birth parish for them all, so that is the clue i have used to look further in Spaldwick, Tilbrook and Buckden (her b.place). I don't have quick access to the parish registers, but may eventually get info from them. I have family in Salt Lake City near the Family History Library, but they are very busy working on the project to index the 1940 USA census, which is being released next month online... eventually we will get to the registers for more info on the Peacocks...

It is good to see that cousins are also interested in the UK.

Hi Loren. I had a researcher look up my grandmother's family in Huntingdonshire, Cambridgeshire and the surrounding area in the early 1990s. Her grandfather Thomas Abraham (great grandson of Jesse and Ann Peacock) came to the US in 1873 and settled in the same part of Michigan where we still live, near Kalamazoo. If you want to email me at otlink@aol.com I can send you a link for my online stuff on the family. It's always good to find another cousin! Len Kling

I forgot to say that if you do Facebook, I have family photos in some of my albums of the Peacocks that are close relatives to me...

Facebook name: Loren Fay

albums with Peacocks: Family Resting Places with some gravestones of Peacock relatives among other names...

Bartlett Relatives album has some old portraits of John and Levina Peacock, and their daughter Anna Peacock Bartlett, photos of their farm and kids and grandkids...

our John Peacock had a Jesse among his descendants, and my grandmother was always called Anna Peacock, b. 1882 d. 1945, she married Fred Bartlett in 1902 and they had eight children... all eight have gravestones in the Family Resting Places album... my mom was the youngest of the eight, b. 1922 and d. 1986.

The Fred Bartletts are also visible on Find A Grave in the Glenwood Cemetery, Homer, NY.

After finding the Peacock census records from Hunts, England, I also began a new album about that with records and references.

A William Peacock also came over to the USA in the 1850s and went west to settle in Iowa, Kansas or Nebraska... we don't know a lot about him, but there are a couple of photos I found of them and I put them in the Bartlett relatives album... I may eventually find more about him thru the Ancestry.com...
