Pitts family
« on: Wednesday 16 May 18 16:30 BST (UK) »
Hello,

My Pitts ancestor, Thomasine, was christened in Upton Pyne in 1780. Her father was Benjamin Pitts. I believe him to be the Benjamin Pitts christened in 1746 in nearby Tiverton, a) because it's nearby and b) it's a fairly uncommon name. The Pitts line goes back to 1713, with another Benjamin Pitts marrying Amey White in Tiverton. Can anyone find a baptism for either of these two? I note there is one in Newton St. Cyres for Benjamin but I'm not sure.

I'd appreciate any help!

I have also never found a marriage for Thomasine's parents, Benjamin and Ann Pitts.

Hello
That 1713 marriage gives Amey White of Somerset.
Benjamin Pitt is a late baptism at Tiverton
Benjamin Pitt s of Roger 8.7.1702 born 1 August 1684.

There is sister Mary born 5.7.1695 bapt 15th July
Roger 21.1.1690
Thomas 27.4.1693

It seems Roger and Rachel Wright didn't marry until 11.2.1689

I'd go for Dad Roger baptised 28.8.1662 s of Roger
With his sister Marie 31.8.1660 and Elizabeth 20.12 1650.

There's a Roger marrying Marie Coadley 6.10.1659 wit John Pitt and Joane Lipman.
There was a Will and Admin for Roger in 1681 but I don't know if they have survived.




For Benjamin and Ann I'd go for Newton St Cyrus 6.1.1767 to Ann Heward
There are  James 24.2.1768,Mary 30.11.1769 and John 23 Dec 1771 bapt 12.1.1772 baptised there before the move to Upton Pyne and Betty in 31.10.1773.

Thanks! I found Roger Pitt born in 1630 in Tiverton.

I found a christening for Rachel Wright in 1668 in Cruwys Morchard; could this be her? Does her 1689 marriage indicate where she came from? The parish is 4-5 miles west of Tiverton apparently.

I've failed to find a single christening for an Amey White in Somerset  :'(

Hello Adam
No more info on that marriage in 1689 for Roger and Rachel Wright I'm afraid.It's just their names with a date.
There is a burial for her 7.5.1746 at Tiverton so a date of birth 1768 would be good .Cruwys Morchard is only three or four miles away so would fit nicely.
(Rachel d of Benjamin was buried 25.7.1750)

I'm assumig you already have all her brothers and sister and the marriage of parents Humphrey Wright and Agnes Maunder 7th Sept 1659 which has no extra details.
Burial for Humphrey 22.1.1672 , 8.7.1688,19.2.1695 ,4.5.1701 son of Phillip Wright and 14.6.1703 of the parish of Taunton yeoman  all at CM.

There were probate documents for 1688 Tiverton,1692 CM and 1703 Tiverton but who knows if they survived once again.
It looks like Agnes was buried at Tiverton 17.9.1725 widow

There were two men having children about the time Humphrey would have been born Henry and Thomas Wright ad they both made Wills.Henry's was a PCC Will and is on Ancestry,but  Thomas's  was in Devon.I can't see a baptism for a Humphrey.

I can't see an Amy White either.

Sorry
