PIERSON, PEARSON, PORSUNE, or PERSON, ABRAHAM, Branford, was of Yorksh. came to Boston 1640, join. the ch. 5 Sept. of that yr. when he is call. "a student," of wh. we may doubt the meaning, as we kn. he was bred at Trinity Coll. Cambridge, where he took his A. B. 1632, and he is in Mather's first Classis as a min. bef. coming over, tho. this may well seem incorrect; bec. min. of the ch. gather. in Lynn Nov. 1640 to go to sett. at Southampton, L. I. thence a. 1647 went to Branford, and thence in the autumn of 1667, with a part to his congreg. to Newark, N. J.
See his letter to John Winthrop, 3 Mass. Hist. Col. X. 69 and 84. He had Abraham, b. at Lynn 1641, H. C. 1668; Thomas, John, and Abigail, bef. his rem. from S. and at B. were b. Grace, 13 June 1650; Susanna, 10 Dec. 1652; Rebecca, 10 Dec. 1654; and Theophilus, [[vol. 3, p. 434]] 15 Mar. or May 1659; beside Isaac; and Mary. Abigail m. 27 Nov. 1663, John Davenport the younger; Susanna m. 1672, Jonathan Bell of Stamford, as his sec. w.; Grace was sec. w. of Samuel Kitchell; and Rebecca m. Joseph Johnson, and d. 8 Nov. 1732. But much of the details belong to Newark. He d. 9 Aug. 1678. Descend. are in Conn. N. Y. and N. J. of wh. Farmer says twelve had in 1829, been gr. at the coll. of those three States. Lechford, in Plain Dealing, 43, calls him Pridgeon. Of his will, I have large abstr. furnish. by Samuel H. Congar, Esq. It bears date 10 Aug. 1671, provides out of good est. for four s. Abraham, Thomas, Theophilus, and Isaac; four ds. beside his "choice and precious d. Davenport," so that we may be sure John was d. bef. that date.
ABRAHAM, Killingworth, s. of the preced. had been ord. as collea, with his f. at Newark, 4 Mar. 1672, in 1692 came to Conn. and in 1694 was sett. at K. m. Abigail, d. of George Clark of Milford; in 1701, was made the first head of Yale coll. and serv. until he d. 5 May 1707. He had ch. Abraham, Sarah, Susannah, Mary, Hannah, Ruth, James, and Abigail, beside John, Y. C. 1711, min of Woodbridge, N. J. BARTHOLOMEW, Watertown 1639, by w. Ursula, writ. Azlee, Uzlah, Uzlee in the rec. had Bartholomew, b.

In 1648 he was made freem. spell. Porsune in the rec. and in 1653 he rem. to Woburn, was selectman 1665 and 6, and d. 12 Mar. 1687. His wid. d. 28 May 1694. HENRY, Hempstead. L. I. 1686.

PETER, Boston, a quaker, to be whipp. at the cart's tail 1660, thro. Boston, Roxbury, and Dedham. Hutch. I. 203. It is not relat. in any book how this tended to his conversion. STEPHEN, Derby 1679, had prob. other ch. beside Stephen and Sarah; for the name of Abraham is found in the list of est. 1717, and this may lead to the presumption that Stephen was s. of the first Abraham. THOMAS, Branford 1668, not (as oft. he is call.) s. of Rev. Abraham the first, m. 27 Nov. 1662, Mary, d. of Richard Harrison, had Samuel, b. a. 1663, rem. to Newark, and d. there. He sw. alleg. to the Dutch in 1673. He was prob. br. possib. neph. of the fist Rev. Abraham, and his will of 12 Jan. 1698, with codic. of 3 Mar. 1701, was pro. in May foll. It names s. Samuel and Thomas, ds. Hannah and Elizabeth
THOMAS, Brandford, s. of the first Abraham, m. Mary Harrison, went to Newark from Branford with his f. was call, jun. was in good esteem, but was d. bef. 1684. [[vol. 3, p. 435]]
PIGG, PIDGE, or PIGGE, JOHN, Dedham, prob. s. of Thomas, freem. 1690, print, in the list Pidg. as the name of this mo. in the Metcalf genealog. is spelt Pidge, wh. may show the sound. ROBERT, New Haven 1644, d. 1660, or very early next yr. his inv. being of 23 Jan. foll. and his will of .28 Mar. preced. In it he names w. Margaret, wh. m. 1662, William Tharpe or Thorpe, d. Alice mean, w. of John Jenner, perhaps, her s. Thomas "and her other childr." Possib. he was br. of THOMAS of Roxbury, freem. 14 May 1634, wh. brot from Eng. w. Mary, and sev. ch. had here Martha, bapt. 12 Mar. 1643, and he d. 30 Dec. foll. His will, pro. 12 Sept. 1644, gives Thomas, John, Hannah, Sarah, and Martha, propty. in R. and to d. Mary, w. I think of Nicholas Wood, his allotm. in Dedham. His wid. m. 13 Aug. 1645, Michael Metcalf. THOMAS, Dedham, s. of the preced. d. early in Sept. 1660, prob. never m. at least his br.

PIGHOGG, Mr. Boston, adm. a townsman 28 Feb. 1652, with prefix of respect, and entitled a "churrergeon." See Rec. I. 103, wh. gives no name of bapt.
PIGROM, WILLIAM, Dorchester 1653, perhaps only transient.
PIKE, GEORGE, Marblehead 1668. HUGH, Newbury, a soldier under Turner, at Hatfield, in Apr. 1676, m. 17 June 1685, Sarah, d. of Francis Brown, had Hugh, b. 28 May 1686, and Joseph. JAMES, Charlestown 1647, then adm. of the ch. and made freem. rem. to Reading, had two ws. Naomi, and Sarah, two s. John, b. 1 Jan. 1654; and Zechariah, 8 Oct. 1658; but of wh. w. either was s. or whether there were more ch. or their names if there were more, as is prob. exc. Jermiah, or when either of the ws. or the ch. d. I have not heard. He d. 1699. JEREMIAH, Reading, prob. s. of the preced. had Jermiah, b. 15 Jan. 1674; James, 2 May 1676, d. soon; as did Eliezer or Ebenezer, b. next yr.; Michael, 7 Apr. 1678; James, again. 7 Nov. 1679, d. young; Rachel, 14 Dec. 1681; James, again, 15 Sept. 1682; Nathaniel, 4 May 1685; William, 14 Mar. 1687; Naomi, 14 Feb. 1689; was of Framingham, a selectman 1700, and d. 9 Jan. 1711.
JOHN, Newbury, came in the James. 1635, from Southampton, call. in the clearance from the custom-ho. laborer of Langford, with ch. was at Ipswich first, in 1640 of Piscataqua. and rem. perhaps early to Salisbury, but more prob. only estab. there on his est. sec. s. d. 26 May 1654, leav. will, made two days bef. in wh. he provides for gr.s. John, and gr.s. John, s. of Robert, three ds. Dorothy, w. of Daniel Hendrick, by wh. we discov. the [[vol. 3, p. 436]] error of Geneal. Reg. VI. 342, where she is call. d. instead of sis. of Robert; Israel, w. of Henry True; and Ann. I presume all these ch. and Sarah, not found in the will, were brot. from Eng. or Coffin would have giv. us the date. of b. here, as well as the name of the w. as yet unkn.
*JOHN, Newbury, s. of the preced. b. in Eng. by w.

All inquirers for minute statements about his neighb. are much indebted to his Journal in Vol. III. of N. H. Hist. Coll. His will of 6 Mar. bef. names ch. Nathaniel, Robert, Joshua, Solomon, Hannah, and Mary.
*JOSEPH, Newbury, s. of John of the same, rep. 1690-2, by w.

Aug. 1672, William Carr.
ROBERT, Providence 1645, may have been only trans. inhab. ROBERT, Salisbury, s. of Robert of the same, m. 30 Oct. 1684, Martha Goldwyer, perhaps d. of George, had Robert, b. 3 Sept. 1687; and Sarah, 3 Feb. 1690; was freem. that yr. and d. 22 Aug. of the same. SAMUEL, Falmouth, 1688, s. of Richard. Willis I. 143, 190. Four of this name had, in 1829, been gr. at Harv. and two at Dartm. coll.
PILE, WILLIAM, Salisbury 1659, rem. to Nantucket, thence to Dover, bef. July 1663.
PILLING, or PILLEN, JOHN, Kittery 1639, a fisherman, was prob. of Dover 1653.
PILSBURY, ABEL, Newbury, s. of William, by w. Mary had Joshua, b. 12 Apr. 1679; John, 13 Sept. 1682; Jacob, 20 Mar. 1687; Abel, 12 Apr. 1690; and Elizabeth 20 Mar. 1694. CALEB and INCREASE, brs. of the preced. were of Newbury 1678, but we kn. no more of either exc. that the former d. 4 July 1680, acc. Coffin, wh. says nothing of the latter aft. his b. JOB, Newbury, eldest br. of the preced. freem. 1670, m. 5 Apr. 1677, Catharine Gavett, had Daniel, b. 20 Sept. 1678; and Josiah, 17 Apr. 1686.

Coffin's page does not allude to d. of the first. Yet as w. of Worth she had brot. a number.
WILLIAM, Dorchester 1641, m. that yr. prob. Dorothy Crosby, had Deborah, b. 16 Apr. 1642; Job. 26 Oct. 1643, Moses; Abel; rem. to Newbury, there had Caleb, 28 Jan. 1654; William, 27 July 1656; Experience, 10 Apr. 1658; Increase, 10 Oct. 1660; Thankful, 22 Apr. 1662; and Joshua, 30 June 1671; freem. 1668, d. 19 June 1686, aged 71.

Nine of this name had, in 1834, been gr. of N. E. coll.
PIMORE, THOMAS, New Haven, a propr. 1685.
PINCKNEY, PHILIP, Fairfield 1650, perhaps he was not there much [[vol. 3, p. 438]] aft. 1653, certain, was at East Chester, 1665. His s. John liv. there 1690, and perhaps he had other ch. beside Abigail, wh. m. David Osborn.
PINDAR, PINDER, PYNDER, or PINTER, HENRY, Ipswich 1642, perhaps was f. of Mary, who. m. 21 Mar. 1643, Solomon Martin, and of Joanna, wh. m. 14 Nov. 1643, Valentine Rowell. He had come prob. as early as 1635 at least, for in that yr. emb. at London, in the Susan and Ellen, to come hither, were Mary, aged 53, with six ch.; Francis, 20; Mary, 17, Joanna, 14; Ann, 12; Catharine, 10; and John, 8. JOHN, Ipswich 1648, may have been s. of the preced. m. a. d. of Theophilus Wilson, and had s. Thomas; and perhaps rem. to Watertown, there d. 14 Apr. 1662. SAMUEL, Ipswich 1683.
PINGRY, PINGREW, PINGREE, or PENGRY, AARON, Ipswich 1648 *MOSES, Ipswich 1642, perhaps br. of the preced. a saltmaker, m. Abigail, d. of the first Robert Clement, was rep. 1665, and deac. d. 1695, aged prob. 85 yrs. JOHN, prob. s. of Aaron or Moses, took lease of the sch. farm in 1680, m. Faith, perhaps d. of the first Joseph Jewett.
PINTON, NICHOLAS, Lynn 1647, perhaps worked at the iron mine, rem. to New Haven, there wrought at the iron works, by w. Elizabeth wh. d. 1667, had Ruth, Hannah, Mary, Thomas, and Robert; and d. Apr. 1676. His inv. amount, only to L43; but that was a season of extreme depresssion. The spelling is Dodd's, but Sylvester Judd read the rec. Pineon. Ruth m. at Lynn, 28 Dec. 1657, James Moore. ROBERT, Lynn 1647, may have been s. of the preced. THOMAS, Sudbury 1661, may have been s. of Nicholas, sett. at New Haven, by w. Mercy had Christiana, Mercy, and Abigail, and Experience; and d. 10 Oct. 1710. Doubts as to this name have been express. in Conn. for it might easily be read Pineon, or Pineo, and the sound of either is not much unlike the others, it is said, and was seldom uttered in public.
PINKHAM JOHN, Dover 1665, s. of Richard, in 1671 had gr. from his f. of most of his prop. on condit. of support. him for life, and m. Rose, d. of the first Richard Otis, had Richard, Thomas, Amos, Otis, Solomon, James, Rose, Elizabeth Sarah, and John; 7 s. 3 ds. RICHARD, Dover 1648, hr. to call the people to ch. by beat. the drum. RICHARD, Dover, s. of the preced. m. Elizabeth d. of Thomas Layton the sec. had Richard, Tristram, and John, the last b. 19 Aug. 1696.

Reg. VII. 263. She was Mary, d. of Hon. James Coffin. THOMAS, Dover 1665, perhaps br. of John.
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.

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.
