William was educated at Berkhamsted School and at Pembroke College,Oxford. He was appointed Headmaster of Berkhamsted School on 8 Aug 1636. William Pitkin, was not quite the academic of former Berkhamsted days. Yet he was clearly a prominent member of local society, having served as Member of Parliament for Berkhamsted, In England, however, the political environment began to take its toll on Berkhamsted.

Berkhamsted, situated along a route between London and the battlefields of the English Civil War, became the subject of Parliamentary action to preserve the town. Pitkin’s death is recorded in the parish register of Fleet Street, London in September 1643; in his history, Williams suggests Pitkin may have visited London in an attempt to obtain protection for the School, instead dying of the Plague. He was succeeded by Timothy Taylor.

Originally a member of the Church of England, he had his children baptised in the Puritan Church of the Colony.(Pitkin Geneal.) He lies buried in the burial ground adjoining the First Church of Hartford,Main St.

progenitor of the American family, came from England in 1659. Possessing an excellent education he soon gained the full confidence of the colonists. He settled at Hartford, Connecticut. He was educated for the law and perhaps also for the ministry, but the little colony into which he entered had no need of either lawyer or minister, so he applied for and received permission to teach school at a salary of 8 pounds per annum and a load of wood from each pupil or “three shillings in lieu of the wood.” He was a man of wealth (part of which no doubt he brought with him from England), as there is evidence that he was the largest land owner on the east side of the river. He bequeathed in his will nearly eight hundred acres of land and his estate inventoried 700 pounds. He was admitted a freeman of Hartford, October 9, 1662, and appointed the same year prosecutor for the colony. In 1664 he was appointed by the King as attorney-general from 1675 to 1690, and annually represented Hartford in the colonial assembly. In 1676 he was chosen treasurer of the colony, in 1676 he was appointed with Major Talcott to negotiate peace with the Indian tribes; in 1690 he was elected a member of the colonial council and so remained until death; he was often employed by the governor as commissioner to settle disputes with other colonies. Aside from his profession he was a large planter, and had interests in a saw and grist mill. Although a member of the Church of England he asked for the rites of baptism for his children in the Puritan Church, and they were so baptized. The records assert that they all “owned their covenant” with and became members of the “First Church in Hartford.” He left a large manuscript volume of religious writings which shows him to have been a man of deep piety and of no mean knowledge of theology. “After having filled various and important offices, distinguished for his virtues and ability, he died December 16, 1694.”

He married Hannah Goodwin, married 1661 in Hartford,CT, b. 1637 in Hartford,CT, (daughter of Ozias Goodwin and Mary Woodward) d. 2 Feb 1724 in East Hartford,CT,2 buried Center Cemetary in East Hartford, Hartford, CT.
