Some of these Perry afterwards assigned to Henry Taunton and Francis Coles [ibid., iv. 327, 336.] Between 1642 and 1645 he issued several political pamphlets, after which he is lost sight of.

In 1652 he is found printing at Waterford An Act for the settlement of Ireland. In that year an order was made by the Council for the affairs of Ireland forbidding the Commissioners of the Revenue at Waterford to pay Peter de Pienne any salary from that time. [E. R. McC.
