William Peters of Philadelphia

William Peters (1702 – 1786) born in Liverpool, England, he came to America in 1739, four years after his younger brother, Reverend Richard Peters. He was a lawyer and judge and when the revolution was beginning he sided with the Whigs becoming friendly with George Washington, von Steuben, James Madison and Benjamin Franklin. His 1745 home, the Belmont Mansion still stands in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park.

His son, Richard Peters, Jr. (the junior to distinguish him from his famous uncle), was also a lawyer and represented Pennsylvania in the Continental Congress.
