I suggest you find a copy of FOUNDING MOTHERS AND FATHERS: GENDERED POWER AND THE FORMING OF AMERICAN SOCIETY by Mary Beth Norton. It's a 1996, Alfred A. Knopf publication. Check your nearest University Library as it's a text book.

It has 12 pages in the prologue on the family of Nicholas Pinion. The Pinions of Lynn, MA and New Haven, CT were not your normal 17th century New England family. They were in and out of the courts for two generations, one was even hung for killing her baby. It's quite a read.
