Martin Peerson (c1572–1651) was a Vicar Choral and Almoner at St Paul’s Cathedral in the early seventeenth century. He took the BMus degree at Oxford in 1613 and may have worked as sacrist at Westminster Abbey between 1623 and 1630. As Almoner at St Paul’s (from 1624 or 1625) he would have had responsibility for the choristers and may have been made a Minor Canon. In 1642 at the outbreak of the Civil War (when services had been stopped at St Paul’s) Peerson, along with the other Vicars Choral, had special financial provision made for him. He was buried in St Faith’s Chapel in the cathedral crypt.
