Peck family from Middletown Connecticut

I am descended from Martha Peck.   I know that she married John Cornwall (or Cornwell) in

Middletown in the mid 1600's.  I know nothing else and while I have found some Peck family members

cannot connect them to Martha.

Does anyone out there know any more about her.
