Biography

He was of Welsh extraction, and had been born in 1754 in Kingwood, Hunterdon Co., NJ. He had enlisted in 1776 in the 3rd Regiment of Pennsylvania, was captured and imprisoned in New York, and was released in 1777. He became a militia Captain in Greenwich Co., NJ, and lived there after the war. In 1779 he married Martha "Tillie" Servus (1758-1842), and they joined the "Society of Friends." Peter, with his wife and eight children, moved in 1798 to Grimsby where his uncle, John Green, was a mill owner; and here, his tenth, and last child John was born. In 1802 they moved to Ancaster Twp. and settled on lot 34/1. Peter Templer received the Crown Patent for lot 34, Conc. 1 in 1816, and lived there all his life.

It is said that Peter came to his Ancaster home in an iron-runnered sleigh, and that the iron runners were used to make the coulter for his first plough. Mr. Sanford K. Bonham now owns this plough. Peter's grandson Jesse remained on this lot 34/1 until it was sold in 1875 - the north half to James F. Wilson and his wife, Rhoda Sexton, and the south half to Thomas McCormick.[1]
