      The colony encouraged immigration via a headright system which granted a patent of 50 acres of land to any person who paid the passage of another immigrant. On 21 JAN 1666, Gov Berkley granted Peter a patent for 600 acres of land on the north side ofthe Rappahannock River, near Leedstown, for transporting 12 immigrants, including brother-in-law Francis Triplett and wife, Alais, to VA. On the same day, Francis was granted a patent for 1050 acres of land on the south side of the Rappahannock River for transporting 21 immigrants, including Peter, Mary and their four children to VA.

      Peter's last son, John, was born in the colonies in 1666. The family lived on their granted property until JAN 1676 when Indians swarmed into the Northern Neck area of VA killing more than 30 settlers, including Peter's wife, Mary, and three children, Peter II, Mary and Martha.
