    Feature: Peter Mathews and Benjamin Fletcher – What’s the Connection?
    There is good evidence for a familial relationship between Benjamin Fletcher, who served as governor of New York 1692-1698, and Peter Mathews, Fletcher’s “commander of the fort”. Peter Mathews is my 8xgreat-grandfather, so I have long been interested in the connection. PDF

    Sketch: Peter Mathews – Ancestral Possibilities
    Considerable effort has been expended to try to identify the ancestors of Peter Mathews (#3646). I have looked at a number of Mathew, Mathews, Matthews individuals and families. To better define that research, I have placed these individuals in the Markham of Chesterfield database under a collective entry - "Mathews Ancestors ZCollector". PDF

    Sketch: The Princess Anne Regiment of Foot 1685 – 1692
    In my search for ancestors for my 8x-great-grandfather, Peter Mathews, I have closely followed his likely relative, Benjamin Fletcher. In 1691 the two men are noted together in the Princess Anne Regiment of Foot, serving in Ireland – Benjamin Fletcher as Captain, and Peter Mathews as Quartermaster. PDF

    Was Benfletcher Mathews a member of the garrison at Athlone in the late 17th century? –Or, was he a merchant or man of business in the town of Athlone?
