Peter Hallock
Early Southold, Long Island, Settler
Fact or Fiction ??

Editor's Note 1: Although there had been small settlements in America before 1630 (Jamestown 1607 and the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock 1620), the British colonization of America, in terms of "large-scale" numbers, started in 1630 with the arrival of the Puritans in Winthrop's Fleet to start the Massachusetts Bay Colony. In 1640, the population of the land area we know as the United States controlled by Britain was not over 30,000; by 1650, probably about 50,000, many of which were of the second generation. "The Great Migration" was pretty much over by 1650 - and these 30,000 or so immigrants form the base from which the population stock of New England arose.

Editor's Note 2:  The below material is from the Hallock Genealogy. There is no record of any kind in America that has the name of Peter Hallock in it. Whether William Hallock's father migrated with William, or his name, may only be found in English research as time goes on.
