Hi Melinda:

I will be replying to your other posting about Alice Ebel m. Thomas Hatfield under that title.

You are quite right about Peter being French. By the 1600's, if he had been living in England for a generation or more, his surname would have been anglicized to "Falconer". It was not, so it means he had gone to England (or maybe Holland or Belgium) and then to America. But there are other things to point out here.

I mention Holland and Belgium because the Hatfield (Hadfelde), Melyn, Ebel (Abel), Ogden ( Peter Ford, or Marie Gaudoin ("Goad-WENT" with no "nt" sound) > Mary Godwin or Goodwin.
