Samuel Peck

Samuel Peck was a cooper and worked at his business at Hallowell’s shipyard, near the foot of Milk Street. He was a member of the Sons of Liberty, a Freemason of St. Andrew’s Lodge, and a leading member of the North End Caucus. He was noticed by his fellow patriots during the tea protest to have red paint behind his ears and thought to be one of the leaders in the tea affair.
