"...nor have we found any evidence that places this Richard in any specific county between 1837 and 1860."

I meant, of course, "between 1737 and 1760"

Richard PELL the pig murderer

Surnames: PELL, JENNINGS, FAIRFAX, HARRISON
The earliest immigrant to the United States (at least for one line of Pells) appears to have been a Richard PELL who was transported in 1737 for murdering a pig. He was probably between 9 and 12 years old at the time. We have found Richard PELL listed as a transportee on the Galley "Forward" which went to Maryland and Virginia. We assume that Richard did his indenture years in either Maryland or Virginia. We (several researchers in this line) have not found indenture papers, nor have we found any evidence that places this Richard in any specific county between 1837 and 1860.
Is there anyone out there who can help?

There is a record of Richard Pell in the french & Indian war from Fairfax Co. Va. The reference is in HENING'S COLLECTION of LAWS of VIRGINIA page 218. He was in Capt. Nicholas Minor's Co.
