|Notes for John PITFIELD|
This John was born at Sancreed, Cornwall in 1762, and then nothing is known of him until he appears in Glasgow around 1793 with a wife, and they have 5 children christened there.
I believe that this is the same John Pitfield who wrote letters to his Uncle Benjamin in America (see Benjamin Pitfield ? - 1793) from Briport, Dorset in 1789 and again from London in 1790.
This John is the nephew of the Benjamin Pitfield christened in Colyton in 1741 - the references to these letters (last referred to in the 1930's - present whereabots unknown) is the best proof I have that the two Benjamins are the same person.
Even though I believe that Benjamin Pitfield
1741-? and Benjamin
Pitfield ?-1793 are the same person I have decided to show them
as seperate people on seperate databases until such time as more certain
