They leased land from the Crown, 300 acres of Lot 7, Concession B, in Walsingham Twp., Norfolk County. In 1819 there was a notice on file that Stephen and Sophia had not paid their rent from Sep 29, 1818 to Mar 24, 1819. Sophia died in childbirth when Aaron was born. Apparently after Sophia died, her young children were split up and Stephen married Elizabeth Hollowood, the sister of his daughter-in-law, Rachel. They had at least three children.

Family Contact: Janice Baker

"Nathan Pegg - The Old High Constable" ("Pioneer Sketches of Long Point Settlement by A.E. Owen, 1898) See: Pgs. 361, 364 & 365 Nathan, son of John PEGG & Elizabeth AUSTIN, is the grandson of Joseph PEGG of New Jersey, USA. Joseph PEGG is the brother of Isaac Pegg who arrived in East Gwillimbury, Ontario, Canada in 1800. John PEGG (Nathan's father) came with the Solomon AUSTIN party which arrived on the Niagara frontier in the month of June, 1793. William John (W.J.) PEGG, my third great-granduncle, had interviewed Nathan PEGG and his sister Esther PEGG. I received a copy of W.J. PEGG's letters from Joseph PEGG, youngest son of Milton N. PEGG. Here is his letter: "I was in communication with the family of Joseph Pegg, originally from New Jersey, and as Joseph's grandson , Nathan Pegg, was still living at Simcoe, Ontario, in his 87th year, I decided to interview him. Which I did January lst, 1897. From his sister Esther I learned that our ancestors, as she heard her father say, came originally from England and settled on the land on part of which Philadelphia is built on a stream of water that took the name of Pegg's Run, and empties into the Delaware River. After leaving Philadelphia, they moved to Greenwich Township, Sussex County, New Jersey, close by the old log jail. The only members of Joseph's family they were in memory of was Daniel and Isaac. Both Nathan and Esther have been in Northumberland County (PA) visiting relatives." W. J. also mentioned that he had lost original letter's written by Isaac to John in a house fire in 1917.

Historic Plaques of Haldimand-Norfolk
PLAQUE #5 Location: Harbour Museum, 8 Harbour St., Pt. Dover THE FOUNDING OF PORT DOVER
By 1794 Peter Walker, the first settler in this area, had located at the mouth of Patterson's Creek, but a community did not begin to develop here until Dover, situated further upstream, was razed by invading American troops in 1814. Some of the subsequent reconstruction took place nearer to the creek's mouth where a harbour had been in use since the early 1800's and in 1835 Israel Wood Powell, a merchant, registered a village plan for Port Dover. Improvement to the harbour during the next fifteen years made Port Dover a principal Lake Erie port and shipyards, tanneries, and Andrew Thompson's woollen-mill contributed substantially to local economic growth. In 1879 Port Dover, with a population of 1,100 became an incorporated village. Erected by the Ontario Heritage Foundation, Ministry of Culture and Education The Walker's and Onstine (Onstone) family's arrived sometime in 1793. They traveled together, we know that much. They came looking for pasture land. We also believe that a George Walker, part of Simcoe's Raiders, is related to these Walker's. We believe that this had something to do with their coming to the area to settle. Henry Walker who married Mary Austin is either a brother or the son of Peter Walker. We have been unable to find any kind of birth or marriage records as of yet for the brothers and sisters of Peter Walker. They claim to have been born in PA.
