About Ann Pitman

Biography

William Pitman was a blacksmith.[1] He was born about 1632 and died in 1682 in Dover, New Hampshire. He married first to Barbara Evans in Boston on 29 Nov 1653[2] He married second to Ann (Unknown).[2] He married third to Dorothy.[2]

Did William Pitman marry Ann Roberts, daughter of William Roberts? No, probably not. Her name was Ann and that’s all we know. The theory that Ann was the daughter of William Roberts is based on the fact that William Pitman lived on the land of William Roberts rent free for a short period of time according to Walter Goodwin Davis. Arguing strongly against this theory is the conveyance the estate of William Roberts into 1/5th of shares which proves that he only had five heirs. His son was “simple” and died leaving no children. There were four living daughters each of whom received 1/5 shares. The last 1/5 share was divided between the children an unnamed daughter who had married 1st John Sias, the elder, 2nd Salathiel Denbow and 3rd William Graves. If William Roberts had another daughter, Ann he would have divided his estate into sixths not fifths![3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8][9]

Everett Schermerhorn Stackpole points out in the history of History of Durham, NH (p 52 and p p.319) that William Roberts sold land to William Pitman and his son Ezekiel Pitman. However, this was as part of a legal settlement resulting from a default and probably has nothing to do with his relationship to William Pitman. William Roberts at the same time also sold land to Thomas Doughty who had no relationship with William Roberts. In other words this was a forced sale by the court and arms length transactions.[7]

According to Howard Moore his first two children: Mary, and Ezekiel were from his first wife and his remaining children were from his second wife.[1]
