Peyton of Bath County

The Peyton family in America begins with Robert Peyton who settled in Virginia before 1680. Robert was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Yelverton) Peyton of Rougham, County Norfolk, England. When Sir John Peyton of Isleham died without heirs in 1721, it was John Peyton of Gloucester County, Virginia, the first cousin to Benjamin Peyton of Beaufort County, North Carolina, who inherited the baronetcy.
