The Peer family, loyal to the British Crown, suffered from persecution in New Jersey throughout the American Revolution. 

Edward Peer, son of Jacob, came from New Jersey to the wilds of Upper Canada (present day Ontario) in 1786 with his first wife Anna. By 1820 he and his second wife Sarah left Ontario for Pennsylvania. He died in 1834 in Erie County Pennsylvania. 

This book discusses the lives of Edward, his two wives, and their children and grandchildren in those early years. Descendants will enjoy seeing early documents such as land petitions, family photographs, newspaper clippings, and wills.

What book discusses Arent Teunis Pier (1637) and his brother, Jan Teunis Pier (1631)? .
The granddaughters of Arent were Maria and Jannetje. They became the grandmothers of Alexander Ostrander.

Terence - I have not written a book on the line you are referring to. I co-authored the article Origins of the Pier Family in the Netherlands and an Update of Their Connection to the Ostrander Family by Lorine McGinnis Schulze and Chris Brooks, published in the July 2000 issue of the New York Genealogical & Biographical Record but that is the extent of my research on that line.
