It is known that Isaac Pitchlynn or Pitchland came to America in 1764 from Portsmouth, Hampshire, England as a foot and groomman. He is probably from the family in that area known as the Pitchlands. His father could have been a man known as Isaac Pitchland or Thomas Pitchland. We can't get the time line right. However, This family goes back to the 1600s in the same location. This Pitchland family were land owners in the area. We need a researcher in the English records who knows how to access those records over there to complete a good genealogy of the English branch of the Pitchland family. The title associated with the Pitchlands was gentleman. This usually meant landowners. The descendants of the Pitchlynns married into the Choctaws and Chickasaws and became very famous in the Americas.
