By his father's will in 1698 he was bequeathed "onegold stone ring, one sillver ear royer, and one pyd mare," togetherwith a share of the real estate. In 1702 Peter joined the householdof his step-father, Roelof Vanderlinda, at Teaneck, and probably wasliving there when he mar 21 July 1711 at Hack, Judith Demarest, widowof Christian Debaun. She was b about 1690 and bp in the FrenchChurch, dau of Samuel Demarest and Maria DeRuine. Her dau ChristinaDebaun bp 29 Oct 1710 at Hack, mar Hillebrant Lozier and inheritedfrom Joost Debaun, her grandfather, the southeast quarter of his farmat river Edge and Paramus which adjoined the Durie land on thenortheast. Peter was a farmer and acquired his father's homesteadtract at river Edge and Paramus in a settlement of the estate with hissister and bro. He no doubt went there to live after his marriage.He also acquired Demarest land on the east side of the river at the"Vlakte" (the plain), in present New Milford and Oradell, conveyed tohim by his father-in-law and mentioned in the latter's will dated 10May 1727, as "some parcells of land according to his Deeds thereof forthe sum of 70 pounds." In 1712 he and his father-in-law sold certainland in that area to Johannis Cossen of Dutchess County, N.Y., whodied before making payment in full. Peter subsequently acquired titleto 68 acres of this land by 1721. On 6 Mar 1754, Peter sold 100 acresat the "Vlakte" (where his son John then lived), less the westerly 191/2 acres thereof, together with a lot of 37 acres at the "gore" toJacobus Peek (John's father-in-law), for 300 pounds. Peek releasedthe same lands to John Durie "Junr." on 23 Mar, following, for thesame consideration. On 15 Feb 1755, Peter sold his homestead and thatpart of his farm at River Edge lying between the Kinderkamack road andthe river, to Daniel Christie who subsequently sold the same to AertCuyper 12 Aug 1758 for 250 pounds. Cuyper had mar Trintie, dau ofHillebrant and Christina (Debaun) Lozier, and owned adjoining Debaunland at that location. [There were multiple land deals between thefamilies and willed land to sons and daughters.] Peter joined theHack Church 8 Apr 1711, and was elected Deacon in 1720. He and hiswife were among the original members at the formation of the Sch(Schraalenburgh, Bergen County, New Jersey, the South Church atBergenfield and the North Church at Dumont) Church 1723/24 and hecontributed the sum of 11 pounds, 16 shillings toward the new buildingin 1725. He was elected Elder there in 1731. In 1736 he was electeda Freeholder for Bergen County. Peter apparently d prior to 1767,on 5 June of which year John, as the oldest son, was one of thegrantors conveying a gore of land in Haworth formerly of SamuelDemarest. He left no recorded estate and no reference to a will hasbeen found. He sold some of his lands and apparently deeded theremainder to certain of his heirs prior to death."
