While Peerys have come over from Europe in many migrations most Peerys living today can trace at least one, if not more of their lines to Thomas Peery I of Augusta County, Virginia.
Thomas Peery's father was William Peery, wife unknown, and William was raised in Alloway, N.J. and born in Chester County, Pa., in 1692. He moved to Augusta Co.Va., and by 1715 began having sons, of which he had five, with an unknown wife.
These sons were Thomas, John, James, George, and Joseph.
Williams' father was John Peery, wife Mary, who came over with his father and brothers from Knock Lofty, Tipperary, Ireland. John's father was also named John and his wife is also unknown.
John's brothers were Samuel, Thomas, and William.
John Peery was born in 1640 in Tipperary, Ireland and died in 1703 in Alloway, N.J.It is not known when his father died.
