  • Notes 
    • Huguenot Society of South Carolina p. 52 notes:

      "Section V - Peter Berrien, Son of Cornelius Berrien and Sarah Hallett." "As has been previously traced in Section I: Peter Berrien bap. Aug. 19, 1739 in Newtown Presbyterian Church.; m. first Dec. 22, 1763, Hannah Campbell, Spinster of N.Y. at the R.D. Ch., N.Y. That his Marriage Bond, vol. VII, P. 578 designates him as 'Peter Berrien, Jr.' has thrown many researchers into confusion.  The signed statement by Mr. Kenn Stryker-Rodda of the N.Y.G. & B. Society, explains this use of "Jr." for a younger member of a family, wherein an older, more prominent member bore the same name, was generally acceptable in the Dutch colonies, and continued to be used for some period. (See p. 53)  Of this marriage there was but one child: Sarah."

      The handwritten note on p. 53 (referenced above) by Kenn Stryker-Rodda F.A.S.G.:

      " 'Jr' means only 'younger' and was commonly borne by the younger of the persons of identical name living in the same area, where father-and-son, uncle-and-nephew; or cousins, could become confused" [8]
