Earliest PIMBLE / PYMBLE events?

Lance Pymble in Australia (Lance is a direct descendant of Robert Pymble who emigrated to NSW in the early 1800's) asked me:

What's the earliest Pimble stuff we have?

Sarah Pimble's grave 1726 ...
Thomas Pymble's Will 1531 ...
Earliest photo - Robert Pymble before 1861
Earlies signature ...
Anything earlier you know of?

I wonder if any US based PIMBLE have any early photographs? or is aware of any other early events?

Note: The characters that look like an 'f'' are mostly an 's'.

My grateful thanks go to Lee Hines of the Linton History Society for pointing this out to me.

Marriages 1837 to 1983

The Guild Archive has been updated to include marriages from 1837 (when Civil Registration started) to 1983. This is for England and Wales, I don't believe there are any marriages in Scotland or Northern Ireland.
