PEPPERRELL, SIR WILLIAM (1696--1759), American soldier, was born in Kittery, Maine, then a part of Massachusetts, on the 27th of June 1696.
Pepperrell served in the Massachusetts general court (1726-1727), and in the governor's council (1727-1759), of which for eighteen years he was president.
Although not a trained lawyer, he was chief justice of the court of common pleas from 1730 until his death.

Pepperrell immediately engrossed himself in the business of promoting and organizing the campaign against Louisbourg; enlistment became widely popular; and the success of the campaign under his leadership and that of Warren, his ocean going counterpart, is part of our larger story.
William Pepperrell the Elder received no formal schooling and, like most men in his village, he became a fisherman (it was probably on one of his fishing expeditions to Newfoundland that he decided to become an American colonist).

In Kittery, the Pepperrells were one of nine families who constituted the “better sort” and among whom town and provincial offices were passed around and handed down from father to son and grandson.
It was natural, therefore, that William Pepperrell in 1720, at the age of 24, should be chosen to represent Kittery in the provincial assembly.
Minor differences between Pepperrell and Warren during the siege and at the time of surrender were magnified in camp rumours into an attempt by Warren to claim chief credit for the victory, and were further exaggerated in Boston.

 William Williams
Williams fell exhausted on the second day of their journey, and was at once dispatched with a tomahawk.
Williams became interested in genealogical research in 1822 and assisted in preparing a life of Eunice Williams, and it is probable that his taste for investigation of historical subjects, with the knowledge of the doubtfulness of his parentage, created in his mind a sincere adherence to his singular delusion.
Williams was a member of many historical societies, president of the Franklin county, Massachusetts, medical society, and vice-president of the Massachusetts medical society.

He states that the "Pepperrell papers have been scattered to the four winds"and that it was only after much research "that enough have been gathered to set the affair right." Several of these letters, which passed between Sir William and General Waldo, are exceedingly friendly expressing mutual hope that the union would be consummated.

 Loyalist Collection at the University of New Brunswick
After the capture of Louisbourg, Pepperrell acted as joint governor of the conquered territory with Sir Peter Warren, the commander of the British naval forces during the attack, and remained in Louisbourg until the spring of 1746.
In 1774, this William Pepperrell was created a baronet, but because he was a committed Loyalist, the whole of his estate in Massachusetts was confiscated by the rebel government.
The Sir William Pepperrell Papers and the Louisbourg Papers are both available in the Loyalist Collection and are so closely related in content they are, in effect, one collection, and should be used in conjunction with each other.

 French and Indian Wars. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
The first of the wars, King William’s War (1689–97), approximately corresponds to the European War of the Grand Alliance (1688–97).
The expedition led by Edward Braddock against Duquesne in 1755 was a costly fiasco, and the attempt by Admiral Boscawen to blockade Canada and the first expeditions against Niagara and Crown Point were fruitless.
In the West, the hold of Sir William Johnson over the Iroquois and the activities of border troops under his general command—most spectacular, perhaps, were the exploits of the rangers under Robert Rogers—reduced French holdings and influence.
