Given Name: Peter
Birth: April, 1809 in Diall, Islay, Argyll, Scotland
Death: 1848 in Oro Tp, Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada
Baptism record dated April 6, 1809.
According to Hunter, pg 155, Peter was one of the earliest Islay settlers in Oro Tp, coming to Lot 1, Con 9 in the 1820's. Although he must have been very young, it is true that he was in possession of 200 acres as of Feb 1832. It was due to Peter's urging that the rest of the McPhie family came out in 1836 (McEwen, pg 275).
In the Spring of 1844, Peter agreed to give his brother William 100 acres in exchange fo his "chopping" 25 acres of Peter's land. Peter was at Holland Landing at the time.
Peter's children were apparently raised by his brother William after his death.
In some historical records Peter is listed as McDuffie, and in others as McPhie.
