  • Notes 
    • Variously spelled as Mallery, Mallary, Malory, Malorye, Malore and Mallory, the name frequently appears in the early New Haven Records, but in later years appears more uniformly as Mallory. It is a corruption of the French mallieure; in Latin, malos, Leoporarious, -- a name for all hunting the hare.[1] Tradition says the first of the name in America came from the south of England, with Reverend John Davenport and Mr. Theophilus Eaton, who came to New Haven in 1637, but the first Mallory might have been an "adventurer," or, more likely, a "minor."

      I. Among those who signed the "Planters Covenant" at New Haven in 1644, was Peter MALLORY[2], who received the oath of fidelity at the General Court of that year.[3] He was doubtless among the many faithful followers of Reverend Davenport, who helped to build the church and plantation at New Haven.

      Peter MALLORY and "Goodwife Mallary (Mary)" were assigned seats in the meeting house in 1655.[4] A town record about that time shows Peter Mallory undertook to sweep chimneys, provided they would furnish him a "canvis frock and hood to cover his cloathes."[5].

      Many of the early records of his property transfers are signed with his initials[6], which shows a degree of education above that indicated by the more customary "his mark" of that period. An interesting variation of his name as found in old records is 'Pooler' Mallory. His home-lot and most of his land was near the Milford town line, at a place commonly called "West Side Farms," now West Haven. His numerous deeds of transfer show that he was a very large land owner, but also that he was one who believed in assisting his children while he was yet living, rather than to accumulate large holdings to be divided after his death, for he repeatedly transferred land to various ones of his numerous sons and daughters.[7]

      On 11 July 1663, according to the records, his wife Mary was baptized in the church at New Haven, together with three of her children. On 8 November 1671, the following action regarding him was recorded: "This Court upon ye allegations presented on behalf of Peter Mallory, Senior, for freedom from training doth free him from ye said service." He is listed with the proprietors of New Haven in 1685, "Peter Mallory senior," showing that his son Peter was also resident there.[8]

      By a deed of gift dated 2 July 1684, he gave land "by way of portion in part with my loving daughter Rebecca Bunnell, to my loving son-in-law, Benjamin Bunnell."[9] This is an important entry to us, since some historians have stated that Benjamin Bunnell's wife was Mary Brooks.[10] It is possible that the Benjamin who married Mary Brooks was a cousin of our Benjamin -- a son, doubtless, of either Solomon or Benjamin, who were brothers of our immigrant, William Bunnell. Another entry of significance is that Rebecca's brother Samuel, in his will, mentions "sister Rebecca Bunnell's son Benjamin." [11]

      Another deed of interest is that dated 29 April 1691, executed by Peter Mallory to "my daughter-in-law, Mary Mallery, widow, relict of Thomas Mallory my son lately deceased, ... during the nonage of her son Thomas," etc., with the proviso that if that son died before he is twenty-one "It shall go to her son Daniel at lawful age, and if he die, then to her son Aaron, and if they three all die, then it be and remain unto my said daughter,..."[12] This deed of gift, executed a few weeks after the death of his son Thomas, indicates a very commendable desire on the part of the father to make comfortable provision for the young widow and her children.

      Peter Mallory married about 1648, Mary, daughter of William and Elizabeth PRESTON[13] She was born in England, emigrating at the age of six years, in 1635, with her father and step mother. She was baptized into the church at New Haven, 11 July 1663 (ibid 9:361), and died there in December, 1690. (New Haven Vital Records, printed, 1:69) On 30 August 1697, Peter Mallory deeded all his "estate undisposed of ... moveable, real or personal," to his son Peter, Husbandman, and son John Cordwainer in consideration of life support. His death occurred between that date and 24 November 1701, when his son John conveyed some land, mentioned "the dwelling house formerly belonging to peter malary my deceased father."

      (Probably the wife of John Cordwainer mentioed in her father's will)

      There is considerable uncertainty concerning Peter Mallory'sparentage. Most sources list his father as Rafe Mallory. WFT Pedigree#3541, quotes "Families of New Haven" as naming Valient Mallory as thefather, while Eva Jeanne Myers on CD101 says Peter was born between 1604and 1610, the son of John & Ann Eure. Dudick home page advances thetheory that Peter was the son of Peter Mallory (b. 1576 or 1556), orpossibly of Sir John Mallory (b. abt. 1554). Most agree that Peter'sgrandparents were Sir William Mallory and Ursula Gale. *********************

      From "Dudick Home Page": What we do know about Peter is that he came to ourcountry around 1639,probably via Virginia. There was a fair amount of traffic of personsmoving to New Haven, CT from Virginia at the time. In any case, Petertook the Oath of Allegiance at New Haven, Connecticut on the 5th of Aug.,1644. This might be the same document as "The Plantation Covenant" thathe signed in 1644. He possibly married a first time to Elizabeth Barnesin Feb. 1648. He and his apparently recent wife appeared before thecourt Feb. 6, 1648/9 where the minutes state "Peeter Mallory and his wife was called before the court and was charged with the sinn of vncleanessor fornication, a sinn wch they was told shutts out the kingdome ofheaven, without repentaine and a sinn wch layes them open to shame andpunishment in the court. It is that wch the Holy Ghost brands with thename of folly, it is that wherein men show their brutishness, thereforeas a whip is for the horse and asse, so a rod is for ye follish backs.They confessed their sinn, and desired the court to show them mercy inrespect of their bodies, she being weakely, and for ought is known, withchild, and he subject to distraction, haueing sometime bine distemperedthat way. Wch things the court considereding, thought it most meete topunish by fine and not by corporall punishment,and therefore ordered thatthey pay 5 pounds as fine to the town, and that they be brought forth tothe place of correction that they may be ashamed and that it appeare thecorporall punishment is remitted in respect of mercy to their bodies, butwith the shame of the sinn as if the correction was laide on." Thiscourt record is likely to be for the offense of premarital sex. Thistype of case was not uncommon inearly court records. The wife referredto could be his possible first wife, Elizabeth Barnes, or his wife in allsources who is Mary (Preston?). If his wife was Elizabeth in this record, she probably died shortlyafter. In either case, he married Mary (Preston) by whom he had all hischildren starting within the next couple years. He bought a house,orchard and land from Nathaniell Seeley in (1651). His seatingarrangement in one particular church meeting suggests that he was in goodstanding but not of a particularly high social class. His wife waslisted as Goodwife Mallory, meaning that she too was considered to be arespected middle class citizen. According to Frank Mallory he was chimneysweep, planter, and speculator in tobacco and land. He was a large landowner. He repeatedly gave land to his sons. He appeared in the courtrecords again for suing Widow Hodskis for slander. He is listed in theThird Division of New Haven Lands on the 20th of Dec. 1678/9 as having 8persons in his family with an estate worth $65.00. His son, Peter Jr.,had his own house at that time with 2 persons listed. His estate wasworth $28.00. Though there is no absolute record that Peter married Mary Preston,circumstantial evidence leads to that conclusion. Peter and John Huntersigned the oath of allegiance together in 1644. This same John Hunter inhis will dated 1648 divided his small estate between Sarah Meeker (d. ofWilliam Preston), Mary (wd. of William Preston) and Peter Mallory. SomeMallorys had also followed the Prestons from Stratford to Woodbury.

      *********************** From "Family History of Philo...Hitchcock": Proposed growing tobacco to the General Court in 1654. Not approved. Sued "Widdow Hodskis" for slander & defamation for saying "that yework of ye divell was done at Goodman mallery his house". Won ten pounds.
