About Ann Pitts

Anne Cooke married Edmund Pitts circa 1636 / 1637, and gave birth to their first child (Mary) within this time frame. A credible secondary source notes that Edmund Pitts emigrated to Hingham, MA in 1637, accompanied by his "wife and child (Mary, who died in 1641) and brother Leonard, "a mariner and master". Referenced source notes that a William Pitts arrived in Hingham, MA in 1638 as "a servant of Phillip James" and notes that William "was also born in Hackford and probably related to Edmund". (1)............Anne (Cooke) Pitts is frequently misrepresented as the biological mother of Peter Pitts of Taunton (circa 1626 - 1692), including on any and all Geni family trees. This is a patent improbability / impossibility, inasmuch as Edmund Pitts and Anne Cooke were not married until circa 1636 / 1637, with the issue to their marriage very well and credibly documented.
