Edward Mumford name has been found on "Brewers List" (compiled by J.M. Brewer, as 17-volume MSS in Land Office at Annapolis) as "transported to Maryland" in 1667 (Liber 11, fol. 440/337). No entry for indexed for any Peregoy on these lists properly titled Early Maryland Settlers, 1634-1682.
Edward Munford may have served an indentured period after 1667, to repay passage money. After 1670 he is recorded as "Planter" in Baltimore Co., and was associated with land grants such as "Jones Neglect" (1675) "Hopewell" (1681) and "Hares, Haws or Harts Green" (1682). in 1685, Edward Mumford sold land called "Long Island Point" to Thomas Stone and Dennis Garrett. in 1684, he conveyed "15 acres of Hopewell" to Charles Corsuch.
Last Grantor Deed or record was in 1688 when he transferred ownership of 35 acres of "Harts Green" to one Samuel Greenwood. These land sales were recorded, first in Court Records, Liber R M no HS, beginning at Folios 166, 181, and 320: also recorded in Baltimore Co. Deeds Book E1, pp. 255-257 and pp. 305-309: and in Book F2 pp. 456-457. the later records were probably transcribed from the earlier court records.
MUMFORD - PEREGOY NOTES
Compiled by Harry Herbert Lee 5750 Cumberland St. San Diego 14, Calif. (1962)
Edward Mumford and Joseph Peregoy his son-in-law, were taxed for the year 1692 in Baltimore County, Maryland in a joint household, (having "two polls") the surname of the younger man was recorded that year as "Peregoe" (Baltimore Co. Court Proceedings, Liber F No. I, fol 221) On similar lists of Taxable s prior to 1707, that name had eight varients, on eleven lists, changing from Pelego to Pericoy and even Perrugury and Peregua. There were truly as many ways to spell a name in this colonial period as there were clerks, and even the same clerk made little pretension to consistency in spelling. he lists of Taxable's for 1703, for North of Patapsco Hundred, shows one William Mumford in a household headed by Joseph Peregua, including also a Joseph Ponnet, for "three polls" recorded. William was probable son of Edward Mumford and brother-in-law of Joseph Peregoy.
Joseph and Sarah (Mumford) Peregoy made seperate depositions in Chancery Court in 1714 (Liber PL, fol. 103, 104). Their testimony related to land boundaries then in dispute. Joseph gave his age then as 49, while Sarah Admittes to 42 or thereabout. She named her father, (recorded as Edwd. Maunford) as source of her knowledge of the stump of an oak which was a bound tree.
Probable children of Joseph and Sarah, married abt. 1688 included: Edward, Joseph Jr., and Henry Peregoy: also possibly a daughter, Frances, who was married at St. Pauls, Baltimore, on 16 February 1723 to John Gollaham.
Edward Mumford was transported to Maryland in 1667, as recorded on "Brewers List" (Early Maryland Settlers 1634-1682 compiled by: J.M. Brewer in 17 mss. volumes in Land Office: Liber II, fol. 440-337). No name similar to that of Peregoy was indexed by Brewer. But Joseph was not recorded in Maryland until 1688, after the cut-off date 1682 of Brewer's List.
Did Joseph Come to Maryland from Virginia, England, or directly from France ? Were entry books on immigrant lists, kept in Maryland after 1682 ? That would be the period of the great exodus of Hugenot refugees from France. On Oct. 18, 1685, King Louis XIV signed the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes. By the revocation all French Protestants were deprived of civil as well as religious liberties. Over 400,000 Huguenots (a name in popular use after 1560 in France) sought new homes abroad during the next few years. Those arriving in England were registered on "Denization Rolls". Many of the denaturalized aliens came on over to new England and other colonies farther south. But what of those sailing directly from French ports and havens of refuge in Holland and the Rhineland ? (see Huguenots in Encyc. Brit.)
Edward Mumford, of probable English origin was recorded a "Planter" on the Patapsco River, associated with such grants as "Jones Neglect" 1675 "Hopewell" 1681 and "Hares, Haws or Harts Green" 1682. He sold land called "Long Island Point" in 1685 to Thomas Stone and Dennis Garrett. He conveyed title to 15 acres of "Hopewell" in 1656 to Charles Gorsuch.
His last grantor deed of known record was for 35 acres of "Harts Green" to one Samuel Greenwood. (Court records liber RM no. HS, fol 166,181 and 320). The name of Edward's wife (possibly Sarah _______) has not been ascertained. He died, probably in Baltimore Co. after 1692 but before 1714
Edward married Mary Watkins, daughter of Joseph Watkins and Elizabeth Stafford Purnell, in 1679. (Mary Watkins was born in 1653 in England and died after 21 Apr 1690.)
