I am researching the Pitcher family connected with Pitcher's Shipyard in Northfleet, Kent, England. The yard was active between 1788 and 1860 and was handed on by Thomas Pitcher to his sons, William and Henry in 1825. Thomas apparently had 11 sons and 11 daughters. I believe William and Henry may have moved to Jersey at or before the time the shipyard closed/was sold in 1860, the year of William's death. In particular I am seeking Thomas' antecedents and knowledge of William's offspring.
