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.

Courant of Saturday foll. tho. something exagger. as we kn. from her testim. less then twelve yrs. bef. that she was 89. Aft. this age, and even bef. people are too apt to grow old. She was wont to tell, that she went over in the first boat that cross. Charles river, in 1630, to what is now Boston, that she was the first that jump. ashore, etc. Of that exact truth of this pleasant myth, the possib. is not to be denied; but I would fully learn three points -- the name of the sh. in wh. she arr. and wh. brot. her; and still more import. is her maiden name. Tradit. has not ascertain. the fact, and possib. it was not worth adding, whether she was the only one of her sex, that cross from Charlestown in the first boat. Small deduct. from the full tale of 105 yrs. will anybody make on looking at the portrait tak. (when she is call. 100 yrs. 3 mos) in 1721, Preserv. in the Historical Society's Collect. tho. to have liv. near 58 yrs. aft. her eleventh ch. was b. ought to have satisf. the appetite of any decent worshipper of tradit. without being. her over in Gov. Winthrop's comp. Still a dozen or two of yrs. could easily be spared, if the circumstance of the young maiden's jumping from the boat on approach, the shore in Boston harbor, had made stronger impression on her mind, then the petty concomit. of time and fellow-passeng. in cross.
