  • Notes 
    • We do not know just when Daniel Pegg came to America. The earliest date mentioned in W. J. Pegg's papers is that of a deed of land for 600 acres in 1665, made out to Daniel Pegg who settled on the
      banks of the Delaware River between the Cohoquinoque and Cohocksinck creeks. This land along the Delaware river was under Swedish control from 1638 to 1655 when it passed to Dutch control. Then the
      English took control in 1664. Though control changed, the settlers remained,and so Jurian Hartzfielder, who obtained from the Court of upland in the time of the Swedes a grant of land on the banks
      of the Delaware, afterwards sold three hundred and fifty acres of this land to Daniel Pegg. Sir William Penn, who came to America in 1680, some time after Daniel, confirmed this sale on March 26th,
      1684. This was recorded at Philadelphia in Patent Book A, Vol. 4, page 353. This area later became known as the Northern Liberties. Daniel Pegg evidently was a God-fearing, industrious, thrifty
      man of considerable knowledge and business ability, judging by the state of prosperity his will indicates. He owned a large brick manor house, a plantation and negro slaves as well as a brickyard, a
      tanyard and a malt house. Bricks for building houses were first used in England in the reign of James 1st (1603-1625). The knowledge of brick-making and of woollen mills was passed down from father
      to son until Isaac Pegg's time. Daniel 1st had four sons and three daughters but only one son left heirs to carry on the Pegg name. His name was Nathan. Daniel died the 12th month, 23rd day, 1702/03
      and was buried in the Friend's buring ground with members of his family at 302 Arch Street in Philadelphia.
