Ancestors of Joseph Gile Pattee

The Pattee family originated in England. In 1669 Peter Pattee, the original immigrant ancestor, "on account of certain political opinions he entertained, found it expedient to take a hasty departure from England." Peter settled first in Virginia where he married, and where his eldest son, Richard, was born, but the name of his wife, the date of her death, or the date of the birth of their son, are not recorded.

In 1676 Peter left Virginia and removed to Haverhill, Massachusetts, where he spent the rest of his days. He took the Oath of Citizenship and Allegiance there on November 28, 1677. He established the first ferry at Haverhill, and the locality still bears his name. He applied for acceptance as "townsman" of Haverhill in 1677. He was a soldier in King Philip's War. He was constable again in the year 1710. "He was a "long and stormy petrel" in the town and only gradually fought his way to public favor. He was probably a man of considerable native ability and originality, but with a somewhat unconventional and undiplomatic temperament for the seventeenth century Haverhill. He and his second wife, Sarah Gill, had a large family and many descendents including Joseph Gile Pattee. Peter died on 19 Oct 1724.
