A QUIZ PLEASE HELP

#1
I need two answers to a quiz for a friend and with this being a bootie and matelot site I just know somebody will know the Peter Rabbit one. Answers are either starting with Q OR P


61) BEATRIX POTTERS RABBITS HOME?(12).
62) THIS ONE CAME FROM NINEVAH(11).
 
#3
The second one is "Quinqureime" its from a poem.Think is called Cargoes,by John Masefield.

QUINQUIREME of Nineveh from distant Ophir,
Rowing home to haven in sunny Palestine,
With a cargo of ivory,
And apes and peacocks,
Sandalwood, cedarwood, and sweet white wine.

Stately Spanish galleon coming from the Isthmus,
Dipping through the Tropics by the palm-green shores,
With a cargo of diamonds,
Emeralds, amythysts,
Topazes, and cinnamon, and gold moidores.

Dirty British coaster with a salt-caked smoke stack,
Butting through the Channel in the mad March days,
With a cargo of Tyne coal,
Road-rails, pig-lead,
Firewood, iron-ware, and cheap tin trays




I think thats how it goes,i learned it when i was in Prep school in the 60's.

61 - Peterborough?

I assume the answers are placenames
And if the quiz has come from the Western side of the Atlantic, they actually pronounce it as "Peter-Burrow" here in Canada, further support silverfox's answer.
