Peter was a possible carrier for the Hereditary methemoglobinemia that later manifested in so many of his descendants that moved to Kentucky.

1645 (or before) Peter Fookett is born. Peter Fookett is first recorded in a list of immigrants for whom George Goldsmith claimed headright for transportation. We can assign an age of at least 15 to Peter at this time, making him born by 1645. (FFN 19 pg 3)

” … There is ample evidence in the primary records of Baltimore County, Maryland that a man named Peter Fugate (by various spellings) lived there from about 1661 to 1702, that he had a wife named Frances, daughter of John and Ann (Posey) Mould, and that they had at least two children: John b. 1689 and Ann b. 1692. (FFN 19 pg 5)

Mike Lacopo writes: “If we assign a birth of 1670 to Frances (Mould) Fugate, how can we possible assume that James Fugate was born around 1676?” (Mike refers to the James Fugate whose age of “66” was stated in the “Three Lifetime Leases” in Baltimore County …” (FFN 10 pg 25) “… other children we have assumed to be Peter’s would also be too old to be children of Frances Mould. They would include Josias (c 1675 – 80) and Easther (by 1685). The children mentioned in St. George’s Parish Records, John (1689) and Ann (1682) would seem to be the only children that common sense would dictate would belong to a woman who was born c 1670.” (FFN 19, pg 69)

1661 Sept: a Peter Fookett is first recorded in a list of immigrants for who George Goldsmith claimed headright for transportation. We can assign an age of at least 15 to Peter at this time. Making him probably born 1645 or before. (FFN 19 pg 3)

A record in Orange County dated March 1749 states that Randolph had intermarried … ” (FFN 4 pg 4) “…we can safely give Randolph a birth date of no later than 1720. He was the fourth son, fourth or fifth child, of Josias, making Josias married by 1710 and born by 1690 but probably up to ten years earlier … All of this places Josias in the right age bracket to have been another of the sons of Peter. The parish records don’t start until 1690. (FFN 19 pg 25-26)

1699 Sept – 1701 Nov: Peter died. From the above record & following record, it seem apparent that Peter died after his payment on 5 Sept 1699 and before the entry that he was “dead” on 3 November 1701. There is no other mention of Peter under any conceivable misspelling in all the accounts between 1699 and 1701. (FFN 16, page 3)

1701 Nov 3 Thomas Smith’s administration account filed with the Prerogative Court. In the list of debts there is noted “Peter Fugatt, Dead” ( Skinner’s Abstracts of Inventories and Accounts of the Prerogative Court of Maryland. 1699-1708, p 70. (FFN 16, page 3 & FFN 19, page 4)

Baltimore Co. records provide us with the full name of Peter’s wife, Frances Mould, as well as the names of her parents, John and Ann (Posey) Mould. We cannot be sure that Frances was Peter’s only wife or that she was the mother of all of his children who can be identified. She was named as his wife in the year after John was born, and before Ann was born, so was probably their mother. Note that these were her parents’ names. (FFN 19, page 4)
