Sally Pimble pitch Maisemore, Gloucestershire

One my first trip to Maisemore last week I met some very nice people, one of whom called me later to say that he now knew where Sally Pimble Pitch was and that he would show me.

The Pitch is on the Over Old Road heading out of the village and before Hiams Lane. (map 51.9053, -2.2820).

What is interesting is that I have no record of a Sally Pimble having been born anywhere! However Sally is sometimes used as pet form of Sarah.

This is potentially Sarah Ann PIMBLE (nee NEWMAN) born 1839 and who died aged 89 in 1928. She is shown variously as living at Woolridge and on Old Road. Sarah married Samuel PIMBLE (born 1838) on 14 November 1859. Samuel though died in 1864 aged just 26.

Thomas son of Samuel and Sarah Ann emigrated to the US via Canada. Thomas married Mary Elizabeth BAKER in Canada and many of their descendants were born in Pennsylvania.
