Peter was born in Austria (Kingdom of Bohemia) in 1660. It appears the surname was spelled Marle in Austria and changed to Marley by the time they immigrated to America. Currently he is the most distant known Marley ancestor that I have found. His wife was Elizabeth Clarke. She was born in 1665 in England, probably Tynemouth, Northumberland, where they were married. I have recently found where many are showing his parents as Hans (1632-?) and Dorthea (1636-?) Marle. I have not found any documentation that supports this, though both Hans and Peter are shown as having been born in Niederlangenau, Boehmen Koenigreich - currently in the Czech Republic, so there may be some merit to the claim.
Source: Wikipedia - Bohemia was at one time a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, but encompassed most of what is modern-day Czech Republic.
Peter & Elizabeth Marley are my 9th great grandparents through my great-grandmother, Goldie Chrystal Marley (Couch).
