For anyone interested: The first use of the "Peede" name per a book in the Library of Congress is "John Peede," a male servant, aboard a ship from Southhampton, England in 1626. Landed near Jamestown. John was awarded land on the south side of the James River.

Also searched the derivative of the name "Peed" or "Peede" or "Pead" and found that the name is a derivation of "Pedler" or salesman.
