He was located in Durham Twp., Bucks Co., Pennsylvania before the American Revolution.

He petitioned the British Governement for losses and services.
After suffering grievious persecutions and abuses he enlisted as a private
soldier in the British Army in April 1777 with the 2nd Battalion of New Jersey Volunteers commanded by Col. Allen, and served there until the Battalion was disbanded. In April 1779 he was employed in the existing service and was taken prisoner and robbed of 40 pounds. In 1781 he was taken prisoner again and confined three months and was at the expense of a least 30 pounds. He was frequently employed in dangerous and arduous services. He appears to have served until October 24, 1783. He then went to New Brunswick, where he settled in Sussex, Kings Co.  UEL. - United Empire Loyalist

The Story of Sussex and Vicinity, by Grace Aiton. Pg 27
Peter Parlee Sr and Isaac Parler - Said to have been a different branch of Parlees from those who settled in the Dutch Valley. Both groups probably trace their decent from Peter, son of Jean Perlier of French origin and Abigail Jones who was baptized at the the Reformed Church of Richmond Staten Island, New York, June 13 1736.

This Peter brought with him six sons and one daughter, children of 2 marriages. He and an elder son Abraham received land on the north bank of the Salmon River where they farmed successfully for a number of years, finally selling their lots to John Roach and moving to the Head of Millstream. A long succession of Parlees has come from this family. Isaac Parlee drew land with in the area of the town of Sussex but may not have lived on it, as he settled in the Long Reach after his marriage to Polly Casey the little orphan girl brought up in the home of George Leonard. Dissatisfied with the stony farmland that he had received, Isaac moved to Millstream, carrying his infant child on his back while an Indian poled the boat which held Polly and their few household effects. Isaac died in 1831 in his 70th year, and Mary in 1848 at the age of 77. Their burial place is in the old cemetery on the Matthew Fenwick farm. They were parents of 3 sons and nime daughters and have many descendents living in Kings County. During her later life Mary Casey Parlee was welcomed into homes as a midwife or where ever there was illness. It is family legend that she took her feather bed, a cup and saucer and a silver-spoon with her on these missions.

Jean Perlier (m Marie Arnaud Nov. 27, 1667)
Occupation: Ships Pilot. Vital Records from the Archives of the Dept. of Charente - Maritime Provence of Saintonge, France. Jean Perlier was a Hugenot of La Tremblade, on the Western coast of France. Jean seems to have met an untimely death probably in France.

Bulletin, Societe de L'Histoire du Protestantisme Francais, Janvier - Mars 1916. P. 66-70.
This document suggests that Jean Perlier, pilote, was one of 15 protestants arrested in 1685 by force by the dragonnades. The trial took place in 1699-1700 and most of them received fines. Jean Perlier was fined deux mil livres.

This could be why Jean did not accompany hs wife to the new world. He probably met an untimely death in France. His "widow" Marie probably knew she would never see her husband again, so remarried to protect her chlidren.
