PECK 1600-1820 Oxfordshire

Notes: My GGGGrandfather, Henry PECK, was one of the 1820 settlers in South Africa. He came from somewhere in Oxfordshire, possibly Abingdon. He may have been related to a Simon PECK who was associated in some way to Rye Farm. I can trace my ancestors from Henry PECK up to present day, but only here in the UK; I can't trace other family members in South Africa other than Henry's daughter, my GGGrandmother Sophia Sarah Ann PECK who was born in South Africa.
