Samuel (or Samuel Andrew, as he sometimes wrote
himself) was left by his father's will (1754) one thousand
pounds. In 1757 he graduated from Yale and in 1758
went to England, where he was ordained deacon by Dr.
Shelton, Bishop of Chester, and priest, it is said, by the
Bishop of London and the Archbishop of Canterbury.
In 1760 he returned to the Colonies and was the first
officiating rector of Hebron and Hartford, which office he
held until 1774, when his pronoimced Tory feelings caused
his house to be attacked by the Americans during the
months of August and September, and he was obliged to
flee from the state and put himself in hiding. On the
27th of October, 1774, he sailed from Portsmouth, N. H.,

daughter, Hannah, was taken to England two years later
(so her father says) in the Somerset, British man-of-war.*
He received a pension from the British government, as
well as a grant of land, but in 1803-04, having quarrelled
with Pitt, his name was taken off the pension list. In
1805 he returned to America. He spent several years in
Washington, petitioning for confirmation of a grant of
land near St. Anthony's Falls, and in October, 18 17, then
in failing health and eighty-two years of age, he visited
that part of the country where he passed over a year
and spent the winter at Prairie du Chien. In 181 8 he re-
moved to New York and lived in that city and in Jersey
City imtil his death. He suffered from various physical
ills during a great part of his life. He was a man of
strong character, and of marked individuality. It is
probable that he had a violent temper. His nephew,
Governor Peters, says that he possessed an iron will in
an iron frame. He was impressive in appearance; six
feet in height, of powerful build, with light blue eyes, and
features strongly marked with the small-pox, of which
he nearly died in London in 1 7 5 8 . He was very arbitrary ,
deeply impressed with a sense of his own importance, and
determined to receive full measure of consideration from
others. He was sensitive, and unforgiving, as his let-
ters testify, and he greatly admired and bowed to those
of high estate; but he possessed sound common-sense,
and real affection for, and interest in, his relatives,
giving them the best of hard, worldly advice, and helping
them out of his own pocket when he could not have had
great store for himself. His inflexible and indomitable
spirit enabled him to endure many and various ills, afflic-
tions, and losses, with imflinching stoicism. His History
of Connecticut, which first appeared in London, in 1781,
was signed "by a Gentleman of the Province," and was

* This is his own statement, but the compiler feels it to be doubtful.

not acknowledged, for some time, by him. By its immiti-
gated exposure of the pecuHarities of the countryfolk,
and by his exaggerated descriptions, he brought upon
himself the wrath of his compatriots and earned
an unenviable reputation for mendacity. His imre-
liable history of Hugh Peter, and varied versions of a
mythical ancestry are not so well known, but are harder
to deal with. In the preface of his History of Connecticut
he says: "For three generations my forefathers were
careful observers of the proceedings of the Connecticut
colonists," when, as a matter of fact, his father had lived
less than twenty years in Connecticut when the reverend
gentleman was bom. He received an A.B. from Yale in
1757, and A.M. from the same college, as well as from
King's College (now Columbia) in 176 1. It is stated
that in 1776 he received an LL.D. from Trinity College,
Nova Scotia, and he claimed for himself an LL.D. from
Certona, Tuscany. Toward the end of his life he visited
Vermont, and, possibly with good reason, styled himself
the first bishop of that state though he was never con-
secrated. He was buried in St. Peter's churchyard,
Hebron.*

* The Revd. Samuel owned slaves, some twenty in all, and the fol-
lowing relation seems to be of sufficient interest to quote. Records
prove the tale to be correct. Descendants of Csesar, for many years,
dwelt in and about Hebron, and may be found there yet. Governor
Peters used to call them his " colored cousins."

"Caesar Peters was owned as a slave by the Revd. Samuel A. Peters.
During the Revolution the Revd. Mr. Peters left Hebron and went to
England, leaving Caesar and his family living upon land near by his own
house. Some time after, Nathaniel Mann, a nephew of Mr. Peters,
and who lived in Georgia, claimed to have a power of attorney from
his uncle to take Caesar and his family to the South. Mann engaged
two Northern men to capture the negroes, and to take them to some
convenient shipping point. They chose a day in autumn when all the
males had gone to East Haddam for regimental training. The women
of the neighborhood, however, learning what was going on at Caesar's
home, went to his house, and did everything in their power to prevent
their departure, cutting the harness, and using every means they

could devise. At last the poor slaves, eighteen in number, were
loaded into a big waggon, but Caesar himself was compelled to walk at
the tail. He was given a certain length of rope, so that in going up-
hill he picked up stones, and put them into the waggon, to increase the
load, and impede their progress. The vessel lay at some point on the
river between Norwich arud New London. When the men reached
home that night, and learned what had happened (not knowing that
it was contrary to law to take slaves from the state) , they held a
council. Near by lived a Mr. Graves, a tailor. He had been making
clothes for Caesar, and as Caesar had called for the garments and taken
them away in the tailor's absence, they resolved, as the only means of
saving him, to get out a warrant for his arrest. It was near midnight
before Messrs. Phelps, Horton, Graves, Welles, and five others,
mounted on their fleetest steeds, and started in pursuit. It was re-
lated by one of the party, in after years, that, one of the horses having
steel shoes, fire flew from his hoofs at every stride as they galloped
down the hills. They must have presented a fine appearance, clad
in uniform as they were, with plumes waving in the breeze. Ere long
they overtook the party. Thomas Welles, who was constable, read
the warrant to Prior: the kidnapper said: 'What, Caesar, you've
been stealing? ' ' Dat 's none of your business,' was the reply. The
poor negroes had cried until their cheeks were wet with tears. They
were taken from the waggon, mounted each on a horse behind the
rider, and joyfully returned to their quiet homes."

removed to New Orleans and in 1823 established the

grocery firm of Peters and Millard, the largest grocery-
house of that day in the city, and of which firm he was a
member until his death. In 1824 he was a member of
the New Orleans City Council, and chairman of its finance
committee. He was the originator of the Pontchartrain
Railroad. In 1836 he was the first president of the
Chamber of Commerce, which office he held from its
founding until his death. He was president of the City
Bank. He was president of the State Bank of Louisiana.
In 1849 he was collector of the port, under Gen. Taylor,
He was instrumental in introducing the common school
system into New Orleans, in connection with which he
founded a public lyceum and a library. In 1863 he was
the mayor's adviser when the Hon. Mr. Crossman held
that office. He was director of many institutions. He
was instrumental in building the St. Charles Hotel, the
Merchants' and Commercial Exchange, the City Hall, the
Masonic Hall, the Commercial Bank, the water works,
etc., etc. He was president of the New England Society
for many years and until his death. In this connection
it is interesting to note in his character, as well as in his
personal appearance, several distinctive Peters traits.

until 1825 he dwelt in Murry, N. Y., and then removed to
Portland, N. Y. He was a physician and surgeon, and
was considered a skilful man. He was five feet ten
inches in height and had dark blue eyes and brown hair.
He had a remarkable memory and used to teach his grand-
children mathematics, to count in Latin, etc. When a
boy he once visited the British army, ostensibly to find
his two uncles (Col. John and Capt. Bemslee) who were
officers there. He learned the intention of the English to
attack the saw-pits, where his brothers, Absalom and
Samuel, were stationed with troops to guard the American
stores. The attack was to be made the next morning
at sunrise. He managed to depart without being ob-

away, and told them of the plan. The camp was at once
fortified, troops were sent out, and other preparations
made. When morning came and the British appeared
they were met by the advance guard, which was mounted,
and they at once gave up the attack.
