Peddycoard/Peddycoart Family

It appears that John Peddicoat was the son of William Peddicoat. According to Dorsey Family of Maryland, compiled by Dorsey and Nimmo, William Petticoat was transported into Maryland by Cornelious Howard by 1667. The Bristol Servant's Register has a William Petticoat on p. 2223, 25 Oct 1666, bound for 4 years to Nicholas Wyatt to serve for passage to Virginia. Nicholas Wyatt was a neighbor (conclusion drawn from records) of Cornelius Howard of Anne Arundel County.

Susan Peddycord (abt. 1862-?)

*Lucy and Lisetta appear in the 1850 census as two different children, born about two years apart. However, when Lisetta married Constantine Crews, she was named as "Lucetta Idol" on the marriage license. Her dates, from cemetery records, confirm that she is the child born in 1841. Was Jacob Idol actually her first husband, rather than her sister's? Or did she marry someone else named Idol herself." Anna Peddycord was Joseph Bradford's second wife. He first married Demaria F. Jones (1839-1879) and then married Anna in 1880. When Joseph was 92 years of age, he wrote a paper on his Bodenhamer ancestors as he remembered them. While his memory failed him occasionally, this manuscript is a wonderful collection of facts. It remains a respected source of information.
