Robert was born in Salem and moved to Enfield where he received a grant of land on 30 Nov 1687.
A few years after John PEASE Sr. and his sons John Pease Jr and Robert PEASE Sr. came to Enfield, another individual named Robert Pease [this ancestor] came into the settlement. The committee offered his a portion of land November 30, 1687 after having been admitted an inhabitant by a vote of the town. In his grant of land, he his called “Robert Pease who has been admitted as an inhabitant.” His marriage is recorded as Robert Pease Jr. In legal documents, he was called “Robert Pease 2d” Among his townsmen, he was generally designated as “latter” Robert.
The 19th Century genealogist Dr. John C. Pease thought he came to Enfield from England, but actually, he was John Pease Sr.’s nephew. So far as we can learn, the later generations of John Pease Sr’s family were ignorant of the fact that their ancestor left a brother in Salem who had such a large family.
Robert was just 17 years old when he received the Enfield land grant. Granting a young person land at Enfield was not an irregular procedure. Because there were so many Robert Peases already living in Enfield, he named his first born Nathaniel after his uncle and did not have a Robert Jr. himself.
For some reason now unknown he left Salem home in his youth, and settling in Enfield. Connecticut, was granted land, prior to his majority, located on the Somers road, east of Enfield street. Here is a Google Maps Street View of Present Day Somers Road
In December, 1691, he married Hannah Warriner, and settled upon his allotment, where he was living in 1744.
