PINNEY, PYNNY, HUMPHREY, Dorchester, b. in Somertsh. came, as [[vol. 3, p. 439]] once was thot. in the Mary and John, 1630, but Stiles, in Hist. of Windsor, 745, shows that in 1631 he was engag. in Eng. on will of his uncle Edmund, freem. 14 May 1634, m. at Dorchester, Mary, d. of George Hull, had Samuel; rem. to Windsor, there had Nathaniel, b. Dec. 1641, bapt. 2 Jan. 1642 (not 1641 as 2 Jan. in that yr. of new reckon. style was Saturday); Mary, bapt. 16 June 1644; Sarah, 19 Nov. bapt. 3 Dec. 1648; John, bapt. 19 Oct. 1651; Abigail, 26 Nov. 1654; and Isaac 24, bapt. 28 Feb. 1664. All these ch. were liv. when he made his will, June 1682. He d. 20 Aug. 1683; and his wid. wh. d. 18 Aug. 1684, names in her will 12 Sept. bef. all her ch. but of Abigail only her three ch. leav. the inference that she was d. Mary m. 6 July, 1665, Abraham Phelps; Sarah was sec. w. 20 Dec. 1676, of the sec. William Phelps; and Abigail m. (23 Dec. 1667, acc. Stiles, 746, but as she was then only 13 yrs. 10 days old, I prefer my earlier informat. as to date) 1677, John Adams. 

ISAAC, Windsor, youngest s. of the preced. m. a. 1685, Sarah, d. of Daniel Clark, had Isaac, b. 17 Jan. 1687; Jonathan, 23 Oct. 1688; Mary, 4 Mar. 1690; Sarah, 7 Mar. 1692 or 3; Humphrey, 5 Sept. 1694; Elizabeth 6 Jan. 1697; and Noah, 24 Jan. 1703 beside Hannah, and Daniel, whose dates mare unkn. to either Stiles, or Goodwin. JOHN, Charlestown, m. 4 July 1682, Elizabeth d. of Thomas Rand, had John, Edmund, and Elizabeth all bapt. 11 Sept. 1687; yet I am not inform. in whose right the ordinance was perform. nor is any thing more kn. of him, the w. or ch. at C. that he was not the s. of Humphrey, is well inferr. from what is told me. that the Windsor John d. 1697, without ch. NATHANIEL, windsor, s. of Humphrey, freem. 1667, m. 21 July, 1670, Sarah Phelps, wid of Samuel, d. of Edward Griswold, had Nathaniel, b. 11 May 1671; and Sarah, 11 Oct. 1673; and d. 7 Aug. 1676. His wid. d. 6 Nov. 1715. SAMUEL, Windsor, eldest br. of the preced. b. at Dorchester, made freem. 1658, m. 17 Nov. 1665, Joyce, d. of John Bissell, had Mary, b. 16 June 1667; Samuel, 20 Nov. 1668; rem. to Simsbury, and there had Josiah, 3 Nov. 1681. THOMAS, Gloucester 1671, freem. 1672, and was there ten yrs. aft.

PINSON, PINCHIN, or PINCIN, ANDREW, Wethersfield, 7 May 1697, aft. more than thirty yrs. inhab. aged 74, and prob. without ever w. or. ch. EDMUND, Cambridge 1665, m. Ann, d. of John Cooper, had Ann, wh. d. 8 May, 1666, inf. He had sec. w. Sarah, d. of Richard Dexter. THOMAS, Scituate 1636, m. 1639, Jane, d. of Richard Standlake, had Thomas,b. 15 May 1640; Hannah, 4 Dec. 1642; Waitstill, 1650; John, 1655; and Joshua, 1658. Hannah m. 15 Jan. 1662, George Young. THOMAS, Scituate, s. of the preced. m. 18 Sept. 1662, Elizabeth perhaps d. of Gawin White, had Thomas, b. 1662; Ebenezer, 1668; and perhaps others; he had sec. w. Sarah Turner. Deane.

PIPER, JONATHAN, Ipswich, youngest s. of Nathaniel, had w. Sarah, [[vol. 3, p. 440]] wh. d. 6 May 1700, and next m. the same yr. Alice Darby, rem. 1731 to Concord, there d. 11 May 1752, and his wid. d. 23 Apr. 1758. Of eight ch. Jonathan, Nathaniel, Josiah, John, Alice, Sarah, Mary, and Joseph, the last, b. 1718, is the only one to whom date is affix, nor can we discern by wh. w. they respectively came. 

NATHANIEL, Ipswich, 1665, is thot. to have come from Darthmouth in Devonsh. his will of 7 Mar. 1676, names w. Sarah, and ch. Sarah, Nathaniel, Josiah, John, Thomas, Mary, Margaret, Samuel, and Jonathan. *RICHARD, Haddam 1669, was then constable, in 1674 rep. d. 3 Apr. 1678, in his will names no w. nor ch. but gives prop. to relat. and friends.

PIPON, JOHN, master of a ship at Salem, 1673, was prob. that capt. in the forces to wh. Andros gave comm. at the castle. Felt I. 359. Perhaps Andros's officer in 1687 command. at Pemaquid was Joshua. See 3 Mass. Hist. Coll. VII. 180.

PITCHER, ANDREW, Dorchester 1634, freem. 2 June 1641, by w. Margaret had, beside eldest s. Samuel, John, Jonathan and Nathaniel nam. in his will, Experience, bapt. 25 Sept. 1642; Mary, 25 Nov. 1644; Ruth, 25 July 1647; and ano. s. 18 Apr. 1652, wh. d. young, as prob. did Mary; neither being ment. in his will; d. 19 Feb. 1661, having made his will 4 Dec. preced. dwelt in that part wh. next yr. bec.

ROGER, Hartford, eldest br. of the preced. m. 1683, Hannah, d. of Caleb Stanley, had Hannah, b. 30 May 1684; Caleb, 19 July 1687; Mary, 30 Dec. 1689; Rachel, 14 Dec. 1692; Mabel 1695, [[vol. 3, p. 441]] d. soon; Jonathan, 1 Mar. 1696; Mabel, again, 23 Mar. 1700; and Roger, 29 Oct. 1703; and three days aft. the w. d. He made his will, 1 Jan. 1734; but it was not pro. bef. 15 yrs. for he liv. to 24 Nov. 1748. α *WILLIAM, Hartford 1660, freem. 1662, was s. of Roger wh. was of London in 1666, tho. fam. tradit. brings him from the city of Norwich, had prob. been bread a lawyer in Eng. here first taught a sch. was soon made Atty. for the Col. rep. 1675, treasr. 1676, m. Hannah, only d. of Ozias Goodwin, had Roger, b. 1662; William, 1664; John; Nathaniel; George, 1675; Ozias, 1679; Hannah; and Elizabeth 1677; all nam. in his will, as also is br.

*WILLIAM, Hartford, s. of the preced. m. 1686, Elizabeth d. of Caleb Stanley, had Elizabeth b. 30 Aug. 1687, d. soon; Elizabeth again, 18 Aug. 1689; Martha, 28 Feb. 1692; William, 30 Apr. 1694; Joseph, 26 May 1696; Sarah, 26 Mar. 1698, d. soon; Thomas, 18 June 1700; Sarah, again, 28 Nov. 1702; John, 18 July 1706, d. soon; John, again, 18 Dec. 1707; and Jerusha, 22 June 1710; was rep. 1696, next yr. Assist. and he d. 5 Apr. 1723, in his will of Oct. preced. naming w. and the eight liv. ch. Nine of this name have been gr. at Yale.

PITMAN, oft. PITNAM, EZEKIEL, New Hampsh. 1683. JOHN, Salem, a capt. freem. 1690, liv. in what bec. Danvers. JONATHAN, Stratford m. 21 Nov. 1681, Temperance, elder d. of John Wells of the same, had Jonathan, b. 4 Nov. 1682, d. soon; Jonathan, again, 21 May 1687; Robert, 16 Oct. 1689; and Samuel, 1 Feb. 1692; and d. a. 1727. JOSEPH, Charlestown, d. 27 Oct. 1658; says Farmer; but a doubt is rais. whether he were not casual resid. for neither as townsman nor ch. man does the name appear. JOSEPH, Dover, in serv. of William Tasket, disch. by the Court, 1686, for cruelty of the master, k. by the Ind. 19 Aug. 1704. MARK, Marblehead 1674, call. 50 yrs. old, was, I suppose, a soldier, k. next yr. 25 Aug. at Hartfield. NATHANIEL, Salem 1639, had then, says Felt, gr. of ld. He is usual. nam. Pickman, SAMUEL, Salem 1670. THOMAS, Marblehead 1648, perhaps had s. Thomas. Thomas, Marblehead, call, jun. aged 17 in 1669 may be the man titled sen. in 1683 when made freem. 

WILLIAM, Dover, m. at Boston, 29 Nov. 1653, Barbara Evans, had prob. that Mary wh. m. 16 Apr. 1674, Stephen Otis; and he may have liv. 1677 at Boston. [[vol. 3, p. 442]]

PITNEY, JAMES, Boston 1652, had been of Ipswich 1639. His w. Sarah, had come in the Planter, 1636, from London, aged 22, with Margaret, 22, who perhaps was his sis. and two ch. Sarah, 7, and Samuel, 1 and 1/2. He was of Marshfield 1643, and aft. d. of his w. 14 Aug. 1658, rem. to M. again. for there his d. Sarah m. 21 Dec. 1648, John Thomas, and there he d. 14 Mar. 1663, by nuncup. will giv. his little prop. to his ch. James, Abigail, and John, and Sarah Thomas and her childr. he was then 80 yr.s old, it is said. The s. James is prob. not that youth ment. in a let. of Roger Williams to John Winthrop, Apr. 1655, as having run away from his master, James Bill of Boston, steering for new London.

PITT, WILLIAM, Plymouth, came, Nov. 1621, in the fortune, had sh. in the div. of ld. Mar. 1624, but was not present at the div. of cattle 1627; and may have rem. to the N. shore of the Bay. He was possib. of Marblehead in 1674; at least, one Hugh Latimer, of M. seems to have m. 1669, Mary, d. of a man of this name, wh. liv. there in May 1665. See Morton's Memo. by Davis, 378; and Baylies I. 85.

PITTEE, PITTY, or PITTEY, JOSEPH, Ipswich, freem. 1680. JOSEPH, Weymouth, prob. s. of William of the same, tho. the rec. of his b. has a false date, freem. 1681, by w. Sarah had Mary, b. 27 Dec. 1672; Sarah, 11 June 1674; John 7 Nov. 1679; William, 17 Mar. 1682; Benjamin, 27 Apr. 1687; Ebenezer, 9 Sept. 1689; and Nathaniel, 14 June 1691; perhaps one or two more, as rec. as partial lost. SAMUEL, Weymouth, s. of William, by w. Mary had Samuel, b. 24 Oct. 1685; James, 1 Apr. 1692; and perhaps others. WILLIAM, Weymouth, an early sett. by w. Mary, had, as I conject. (tho. rec. makes Samuel the f.) Samuel, b. 12 Aug. 1657; and William, 12 May 1661; others, also, much earlier; John, b. 28 Jan. 1639, wh. was drown. 28 May 1659; and Mary, 13 June 1643, wh. m. 10 May 1660, Henry Adams. WILLIAM, Weymouth, s. of the preced. by w. Mary had James, b. 16 Nov. 1686; and perhaps others not ment. on rec.

PITTICE, JOHN, Ipswich 1648, may be, I think, the passeng. in the James from Southampton, 1635, who was of Marlborough in Wilts, says the custom-ho. rec. spelling it Pithouse, and possib. the Pettis or Pittis populat. may thus be deriv.

PITTS, EDMUND, Hingham, from Hingham in Eng. came with w. and ch. was a weaver, freem. 13 May 1640, and had br. Leonard in comp. had s. John, b. 27 Nov. 1653; and Jermey, 25 Jan. 1657. Deborah, wh. m. Mary 1672 top Daniel Howard; Mary m. Nov. 1672 to John Bull or Bullen; and Elizabeth m. Dec. 1673, Thomas Jones, were his ds. or they or some may have come of ano. fam. Coffin inf. Farmer, that, a John P. d. at Ipswich, 20 May 1653; and I find an Elizabeth at Goucester, 1639.

[[vol. 3, p. 443]] PETER, Taunton 1643-60, had, perhaps, m. Mary, d. of Henry Andrews, wid. of William Hodges or Hedges, wh. in her will aft. 2 Apr. 1654, provid. that Peter P. should perform its conditions "in case I make him my husband." SAMUEL, Taunton, m. 25 Mar. 1680, Sarah Bobbett, d. of Edward of the same. WILLIAM, Hingham, came in the Diligent. 1638, from Old Hingham, maybe the man of wh. Winthrop II. 305 tells, and may have been at Marblehead, 1654, but 7 Dec. of next yr. m. Susanna, wid. of Philip Alley, was a trader, and prob. liv. at Boston; but his w. Susanna d. at M. on a visit 28 Sept. 1668. See Essex Inst. Coll. II. 69.

PITTUMS, or PITTOMS, JOHN, Boston, by w. Mary had Nathaniel, b. 8 July 1678; Mary, 18 May 1680, bapt. 26 June 1681; and Elizabeth whose b. is not seen, but bapt. 22 Nov. 1685.

PIXLEY, EBENEZER, Westfield, s. of William of the same, m. 1711, Mary Strong, prob. d. of Jedediah, had only Elijah, b. 1714; and d. 1716.

THOMAS, Westfield, br. of the preced. m. 1699, Lydia Dibble, d. of Abraham had Sarah, b. 1699; Noah, 1706; and d. 1731. WILLIAM, Hadley, m. 24 Nov. 1663, Sarah Lawrence, had Sarah, b. 11 Jan. 1665; Thomas, 6 June 1667; rem. to Northampton, there had William, 27 June 1669; Joseph, 18 Nov. 1671, d. young; Joseph, again, 9 Mar. 1676; Ebenezer, 13 May 1678; rem. to Westfield, there had Anthony, 4 July 1681, wh. d. 25 Apr. 1697; beside Mary, wh. d. 1735, at Westfield, unm. the date of whose b. is not kn. and he d. 9 Oct. 1689; and his wid. d. 25 Nov. 1713. Sarah m. 9 Dec. 1680, John Lee. Thomas, and Ebenezer, as well as Joseph, bef. ment. had ch. in W. but their names have not been learned. The name is still found.

PLACE, sometimes PLAISE, ENOUCH, Kingstown, R. I. from whose will, May 1695, I learn that he was 64 yrs. old, and had w. Sarah, m. Nov. 1657, at Dorchester, as in Geneal. Rec.

RICHARD, Milford 1639, then mem. of the ch. where he had lds. 1646, in the list of freem. 1669, was deac. [[vol. 3, p. 445]] and d. 1684 or 5; had d prob. brot. from Eng.

PLAYES. ENOUCH. Wickford 1674.

PLIMPTON. See Plympton.

PLOTT, JOSIAH, Milford 1671, as print. in Trumbull, Col. Rec. II. I think maybe s. of Richard Platt.

PLUMBE, or PLUM, *JOHN, Dorchester, rem. to Wethersfield bef. Sept. 1636, and bef. deputs. to Gen. Ct. were introd. In Conn. was a sort of ruler in 1637, rep. 1641, 2, and 3, had Samuel, and Drocas, wh. mo. 12 Jan.1655, John Lyman, was nomina. 1643 for elect. as Assist. but did not succeed, in the choice, made custom-ho. officer 1644, sold his est. and rem. to Branford bef. 1646, and there d. His will was pro. 1 Aug. 1648. Yet is it not kn. where he first land. in our country, or whence he came. Perhaps he was f.of JOHN, New London, b. a. 1621, where aft. 1665 he seems much connect. tho. prob. liv. at Hartford, a mariner wh. traded up and down the riv. freem. 1669, yet bef. 1677 establ. at N. E. where he had Mercy, bapt. 1677; George, 1679; and Sarah, 1682. Miss Caulkins is confid. that he had elder ch. John, Samuel, of wh. one thinks he was b. 1659, Joseph, and Greene. His w. ws fin. 1671 for sale of liquor to Ind. but at N. L. he was constable 1680, and an innhold. and d. 1696. John, Samuel, and Joseph, were at Milford, but John came back to N. L. and was deac. many yrs. says Caulkins, wh. sends George to Stonington. JOHN, Milford, S. of Robert, m. 24 Nov. 1668, Elizabeth Norton, had Elizabeth b. 1669; John, 1671; and Mary, 1673; prob. more, for in 1676 and some yrs. aft. rec. of b. is want.
