Notes for Gertrude Louise Peach:
Going back to 650 A. D. , the Peach lineage comes from viking ancestry in the Scandinavian countries.
In 911 the Viking leader Rollo led his people (including the Peach ancestor) to capture Normandy. For
over 100 years, the Vikings intermarried withthe French normans, creating a mixed breed. From this
mixture came William de Peche I, the common ancestor of the Marblehead Peaches and all those from
England of the surname Peach, Peachey, Peckham and Peche.
In 1066, William the Conqueror of Normandy led 311 of his knights to capture England. One of his
knights was William de Peche I. When the Conqueror was crowned as the new king of England, he gave
de Peche properties to hold and control for the king. Since William and his decendants remained loyal to
the king, they continued to hold these properties and accumulated more for hundreds of years.
Soon after 1620 John Peach migrated to New England, probably with the Adventurers to Cape Ann,
thence to Marblehead. Peach descendants have lived in the town of Marblehead from its earliest history
to the present time.
