    This name appears also as Witham and in other forms. Peter Wittum and his wife Redicum (also Redigoe and Reddigon) are first mentioned in 1660. He had a grant in 1665. He lived a little north of Sturgeon Creek. Both are mentioned in 1698. He had wife Eunice in 1723. His family appears to have been:
    Hannah m. Constant Rankin of York?
    Peter b. 1657; m- (1) 1684 Agnes , (2) 3 Aug. 1713 Judith, dau. of Moses Gattensby and granddau. of John Gattensby.

    It is impossible to determine the family of Peter Wittum 2d. He had a son Ichabod, named in 1730. Other sons may have been James who m. Elizabeth Drown 12 March 1720, and Daniel who is mentioned with wife Hannah in 1729, and Samuel who witnessed a deed in 1723, and Eunice who m. about 1725, Richard Brawn and lived in York.

    Elizabeth b. 13 Sept. 1708; John b. 25 May 1711 ; Zebulon b. 8 Aug. 1713; Eleazar b. 8 Dec. 1715; Gideon b. 21 Sept. 1717; James b. 16 June 1719; Nathaniel b. 23 Dec. 1721 and Katherine b. 10 Nov. 1723.
