A previous version of this profile, without source, claimed parents Andrew Pitcher and Agnes Blatch. They have been detached. Please use G2G to discuss evidence for his origins. Thank you.
Andrew Pitcher was one of the original settlers of Dorchester, Massachusetts. He is assumed to have emigrated in 1634 based on a land grant in Dorchester on September 1, 1634. He was one of 10 original settlers receiving grants of 3 acres "up on Naponset."  In the list of land grants, he is grouped with other young, unmarried men;  this indicates that the land grant recipient was this man, not this man's hypothetical father of the same name, as some family histories have assumed.
He has not been found on any ship's records and nothing is known of his birth or residence in England, although it is assumed that he was at least 21 when he received his grant of land, making his birth year 1613 or earlier.
Andrew married Margaret Russell before 1641; their first child, Samuel, was born in April, 1641. 
On June 2, 1641 he was named a freeman, and he also signed (with an 'X') a document establishing a free school in Dorchester.
In 1652 Andrew and two other men purchased over 500 acres of land "on the westerly side of the Charles River about 3 miles from Natick."  He was a fence viewer in 1653 and 54. He was a farmer and lived the latter part of his life in what is now Milton. 
He died February 19, 1660/1. His will was dated December 4.1660. An inventory of his estate was made on March 19, 1660/1 and it was valued at 286 pounds, 9 shillings and consisted mostly of real estate. 
Grantee at Dorchester in 1634, 1637, and 1647.
