Re: Wigan Peet family of Lancashire.
I have quite a lot of information about Richard Peet and Mary Fisher. He was a plane-maker (woodworking tools) in Wigan: I even own one of the planes that he made! I am related through their daughter Jane Peet who had an illegitimate son, Henry Peet, my great-grandfather. I have a probable family history (some of it not yet confirmed with absolute cetainty) going back to Thomas Peet who married Emblin Gore in Ormskirk, Lancashire in 1657. Please get in touch directly if you would like to compare notes.
