    Hi Kevin,

    I am the great, great, great granddaughter of Charlotte Peapell, born 1792 of Highworth, Wiltshire, daughter of John Peapell and Sarah Stanley. Do you have any information about her and is she from your branch of the family?

    She married Thompson Pater in 1812. I would love any information you may have about Charlotte or Thompson as I can’t even find Thompson’s parents.

    Kind Regards,
    Libby Fullard

      Hi Libby

      Good to hear from you

      I have Richard Pater and Elizabeth Davis as parents of Thompson. I will see what other information I have – it may take a few days to go through my records

      I have quite a bit on John “Peaple” (as his baptism record his name) including some poor tax records and also on his family. I am less sure about what I have on Sarah but will check. John and Sarah are my fifth great grandparents so we are related.

    Hi Kevin
    We have been in email contact recently and I have just been looking through your website, very good. I just wonder if you are interested in copies of Peapell family photographs? I have a splendid one of my grandmother, Emma Peapell’s wedding in 1904 and one or two of William Ephrim Peapell, and some of his unmarried daughters. Let me know at some time.
