To all researchers of Richard Pile of Maryland, I have found that he was an Apothecary/Churgion in Camelford in Cornwall. He married in June 1696 to Mary Fowler at Gray's Inn Chapel in London. He was the son of Francis Pile, a Goldsmith from Truro in Cornwall. Richard Pile was born about 1673/75. Francis Pile was born about 1639/40. Francis Pile was the son of Richard Pile, a Gentleman from Ashe in Hampshire. Asheis located in Overton Hundred in Hampshire between Basingstoke and Andover. On October 05, 1657 in Overton in Hampshire Richard Pile was buried. His will names his wife; Katherine, and children; Richard, Theophilus, William, Thomas, Andrew, Francis, Henry, Cornelius, Mary and Katherine. The relationship of Richard Pile of Maryland as being the son of the surgeon to Charles I and II is not true. Although, it is possible that his uncle, Richard, son of the above Richard and Katherine, may have been the surgeon. It is possible, but not yet proven, that Richard Pile's wife, Katherine, may have been a Clowes and the daughter of William Clowes, the surgeon for Elizabeth I.
