What We Know

 

We know little of this family other than that they were early inhabitants in Marblehead. John appears to have been the son of John Sr. and his wife Susan of Lynn, who had John and his brother Henry. Eleanor's parentage is undetermined, although she may be related to another of our direct descendants Mark Pitman.

The LDS records for this family indicate that John and Eleanor had four children. I can find no information on the lives of sons Mark and Edward. Their son John became a Deacon and married Agnes Pederick, and they had a large family of their own.

Daughter Grace married Michael Cowes (spelled various ways -- Coes, Coaze, etc.). From The American Genealogist article on the Cowes family, we learn that "Michael Cowes married in Marblehead about 1677 Grace Stacey, who died March 1735/6 aged seventy-seven.

Michael was constable in the town in 1679. His fishing business was carried on in partnership with his father-in-law John Stacey, and the records of their leases of flake-yards from the town appear in books for 1685 to 1700."

 

 

 

Eleanor outlived her husband by many years. We know from Sidney Perley's Marblehead in the 1700's that Eleanor gave each of her grandchildren Deacon John (son of her son John), and Grace (daughter of her daughter Grace) houses in Marblehead. From The American Genealogist we also know that Eleanor's granddaughter, Grace, lived with her and was married as "Grace Stacey alias Coaze" to Thomas Powsland in 1699.

Although we know little of the details of this couple's lives, we know that the two children whom we know survived (John and Grace) gave them many grandchildren who married into various Marblehead families.

Information about the Pitmans in Marblehead:

The FamilySearch.org site is the source of information that Mrs. Eleanor Stacey's maiden name was Pitman, although I was not able to confirm this in any other source. Mark Pitman lived in Marblehead during the same period, and he was one of our direct ancestors. Thomas Pitman and his wife Jane were also in Marblehead in early days Both Mark and Thomas were born within ten years of Eleanor's birth. If her surname was really "Pitman", then perhaps she was a sister to one of them. If she did indeed have a son named "Mark", that is a hint as to her relationship to Mark Pitman. The information I was able to find for the Pitmans appears below:
