Peter Culpeper of Barbados

Father*Rev. William Culpeper of England and Barbados (b 23 Dec 1605 - 1674)
Mother*Margaret Alleyne of England and Barbados (29 Jun 1613 - a 1650)
Name-AltSpell This surname is sometimes spelled Culpepper of Barbados. 
Research note He is referenced in a research note for Thomas Culpeper of Barbados.1 
Birth*before 1647 Peter was born before 1647. 
Research note* Peter Culpepper was identified as partner and named as executor in the will of John Everwine, 9 Jan 1667, St. James Parish, Barbados. Presumably he was at least 21, probably older, so he would have been born prior to 1647. The ancestry of Peter is merely speculation, but there were no other known possible parents living in Barbados besides the Rev. William Culpeper and Margaret Alleyne. Whoever his parents were, Peter was probably born in England as there is no evidence of any Culpepers in Barbados as early as 1647.2

Bill Russell believes that Peter, along with his brother Thomas Culpeper of Barbados, were most likely sons of John Culpeper the Merchant.1
