NICHOLAS PITCHER born 1600 in Norwich
NATHANIEL PITCHER born 1602 in Norwich
ROBERT PITCHER born 1609 in Norwich who married ELIZABETH DAVE.
Believe ROBERT'S PARENTS may have been GREGORY and ANN PITCHER of North Elmham, Norfolk.
I have several collateral lines of PITCHERS in 16th and 17th Century Norwich who don't marry, or even DIE. They just DISAPPEAR.Possibly, they may have emmigrated to America (Cn and NY?)
The earliest reference I have found in Medieval Genealogies is a SIR MILES PITCHER,whose daughter JOAN married one of the LLEWELYN Kings of Wales.
At any rate, I suspect that somewhere they are all connected, particularly those in the other parts of the Norfolk areas of England.
