Notes on people named Pinney (also spelled Pynney)

These notes are aimed at sorting out some Pinney/Pynney families in Somerset, Dorset, and Devon, England, including family members who emigrated to New England. Particular focus is on the Pinney/Pynney family residing at Broadway, Somerset. Dates of interest are approximately 1550 to 1650.

Notes are organized by names of principal people. Within a name, they are organized by date (sometimes the chronology is a bit loose, in order to group multiple related records together).

The will of Edmond Pinney, written in December 1631, is a "Rosetta stone" for many of the family relationships.
