    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.
