The Peer Family in North America

V. 5 Stephen Peer & His Wife Lydia Skinner and their Descendants to 3 Generations

Authored by Lorine McGinnis Schulze

The Peer family, loyal to the British Crown, suffered from persecution in New Jersey throughout the American Revolution. Stephen Peer was born circa 1780 in New Jersey to Jacob & Anna Peer. His father left New Jersey for Upper Canada (present day Ontario) in the summer of 1796. Stephen married Lydia Skinner, the daughter of the Loyalist Haggai Skinner & his wife Elizabeth Westbrook. Stephen was killed at the Battle of Chippewa during the War of 1812. This book discusses the life of Stephen, his wife, and their children and grandchildren in those early years. Descendants will enjoy seeing early documents such as land petitions, family photographs, newspaper clippings, and wills.
