I don't have a lot of info but will share what I have copyed from the book "Genealogical History of the Descendants of Joseph Peck by Ira B. Peck 1868". There may have been more info in the book but I don't have it. You can get this book threw inter-libary loan at any public libary in your location from the Libary of Congress.

Rev. Robert Peck, the brother of Joseph the ancestor, was born at Becceles, Suffolk County, England, in 1580. He was graduated at Magdalen College, Cambridge; the degree of A. B. was conferred upon him in 1599, that of A. M., in 1603. He was set apart to the ministry, inducted over the church at Hingham, Norfolk County, England, January 8, 1605, where he remained until 1638. when he fled from the persecutions of the church to this country.
He was a talented influcntial clergyman, a zealous preacher, a nonconformist to the wuperstitutioons ceremonies curruptions of the church for which he was persecuted driven from the country. Brooks, in his lives of the puritains, gives many facts of interest in relation to him. In particularizing some of the offences for which he his followers were perscuted, he says, "for having catechised his family, sung a psalm in his own house on a Lord's day evening, when some of his neighbors attended, his lordship (Bishop Harsnet) enjoined all who were present to do penance, requiring them to say, I confess my errors," etc..
Those who refused were immediately excommunicated, required to pay heavy costs. This, Mr. Brooks says, appears from the bishop's manuscripts under his own hands. He says, "he was driven from his flock, deprived of his bencfice, forced to seek his gread in a foreign land."
Cotton Mather in speaking of his says, he was by the good providence of heaven fetched away into New England about the year 1638, when the good people of Hingham did rejoice in the light for a season; but within two or three years, the invitation of his freinds of Hingham, England, pursuaded him to return to them, where being though great in person for stature, yet greater for spirit, he was greatly serviccable for the good of the church.
He arrived here in 1638. In relation to his arrival, the town clerk at Hingham here says: "Mr. Robert Peck, preacher of the gospel in the Town of Hingham, in the County of Norfolk, old England, with his wife two children, two servants, came over the sea settled in this town of Hingham, he was a Teacher of the Church." Mr. Hobart, of Hingham, says in his diary, that he was ordained here teacher of the church November 28, 1638. His name frequently appears upon the records of the town. He had lands granted him.
His family as seen upon the chart consisted of nine children. His son Joseph daughter Annd came over with him. He was twice married. His first wife Anne, died at Hingham, England, was buried there August 30, 1648. His second wife was Mrs. Martha Bacon, widow of James Bacon, Rector of Burgate.
He remained here until the long Parliament, or until the persecutions in England ceased, when he returned resumed his Rectorship at Hingham, England.
Mr. Hobart says he returned October 27, 1641; Mr. Cushing, the town clerk says his wife son Joseph returned with him; His daughter Anne remaining here. She married Captain John Mason, "the conqueror of the Pequots." Her children were, Priscilla, Samuel, John, Rachel, Ann, Daniel Elizabeth. Samuel married for his second wife, his second cousin Elizabeth Peck daughter of Joseph Peck, of Rehoboth, Mass.
He {Rev. Robert Peck}died at Hingham, England, was buried in his churchyard there. His funeral sermon was preached by Nathaniel Joslin published. In Bloomfiled's history of Norfolk is an allusion to Robert Peck, evidently prejudiced, as incorrect in other respects as it is in its dates.
