3/30/1638 Peter, with the other colonists, sailed from Boston and settled New Haven, CT.

Family notes:
• Bolton, in his History of Westchester Co., NY; and Baird in his History of the Town of Rye, NY, states incorrectly that Thomas Brown of Concord, MA, settled in Rye. An examination of the Descendants of Thomas Brown of Concord, published in 1901 by Goodwin Brown, shows that Thomas Brown of Concord was never in Westchester County, NY, nor were any of his children.
• 1641 Brockett map [See CD Misc Graphics No.1218], Three Centuries of New Haven, 1638-1938, by Rollin G. Osterweis, 1953. Peter is at the tip of the lower left peninsula.
• The Browne and Purdy families both had members living in CT and Rye NY.
• Francis Brown of Stamford was likely Peter’s brother. Living there at the same time as Peter, he was Deputy of Stamford to the CT legislature 5/1665, 5/1667, 10/1668 and 5/1669. An apprentice of Henry Wolcott, he bought his freedom in 1649. 12/17/1657, at Stamford, he married 2nd Martha Chapman, widow of John Chapman. He moved to Rye and wrote his will in 1686.
