Scots at Oyster River
John Hudson (d. 1717)

John Hudson seems to have been a prisoner from the Battle of Worcester, yet is one of
the very earliest Scots to be listed in Oyster River documents. He seems already to have had a lot there before October 5, 1652, for on that date Valentine Hill was granted “foure acres of land adjoining to Goodman Hudsons Lott for his Scots.” A Peavey and Hudson family history says that John Hudson originally belonged to Valentine Hill.
John & Sara #77
A Peavey and Hudson family history says that he belonged to Valentine Hill.
5 Oct 1652 – at Oyster River [HTDNH 80]
called “Goodman Hudson” [HTDNH 76]
5 Oct 1652 – It looks as if he already had his lot when Valentine Hill was granted the four
acres [HTDNH 80]
settled at Bloody Point, Newington [HTDNH 80]
25 July 1689 – married Mary Beard (probably second marriage) [HTDNH 80]
19 Mar 1693/4 – granted 10 acres adjoining the land he bought from William Furber
1717 – died, leaving most of estate to grandson Hudson Peavey [HTDNH 80]
A small amount of information can be found in GDMNH 355, although it claims he was about 48 years old in 1701, making his date of birth 1653. He could possibly have had a son of the same name born by 1653, but not likely.
September 1697 – Dover constable
