Have not been able to trace any connection with John Pither and Ann Stone married in 1743. Children they had in Crondall were; Anne Pither 1744 Jane Pither 1746 John Pither 1748 Elizabeth Pither 1751 Adam Pither 1753 Mary Pither 1755 Elisha Pither 1757 Sarah Pither 1760 Jemima Pither 1763 There is a John Pither born in 1720 in Shinfield son of Elisha Pither [b.1695] There names tend to be repeated.
I was wondering if you had looked at the marriage registerfor John Pither and Ann Stone married in 1743 at Crondall.
It may have stated from which parish John Pither had came from.
THE SHINFIELD AND BRADFIELD PITHER'S TEND TO GET ABOUT A BIT WHEN THEY MARRY. It is just a chance that John may have taken a tennancy in the area - i suspect others in Mapledurham in Oxfordshire.
I also notice that the name Elisha [b.1783] also recures when JOHN PITHER b 1748 marries Rhoda.
I suppose that you come from this marriage through [James and Sarah Mercer m1824]
