THE genealogy of Littleton was compiled by GEORGE C. FURBER in 1896 and printed in 1897-8.
A fire destroyed the work in 1898 and made necessary a reprint,
which was prepared under the supervision of EZRA S. STEARNS.
The extent of the errata is chiefly due to incorrect material furnished by individuals concerning their ancestry.

The name Peabody originated about the year 61, in the reign of Nero Emperor of Rome. At this time Boadicea, queen of one of the British tribes, was in a state of vassalage to the Emperor. Prasutagus, who was reigning in the right of his wife, hoping to secure a part of his possessions, gave one-half of his estate to the Emperor, hoping by this to secure the remainder; but as soon as he died Nero seized everything in his power. Boadicea opposed these proceedings, for which Nero ordered her to be publicly whipped. This so enraged the Britons that with the assistance of her kinsman, Bodia, she put herself at the head of an army, but was finally overcome. Determined not to submit to the tyrant, she despatched herself with poison. Bodia, among the Britons, signified "man," or a "great man." Pea signified "mountain," which afterward occasioned this leader, by his enemies, to be called Peabodia. (Abstract from the Heraldry office,
