Hi Melanie,
I have information about Col. Edward Pye, whose descent was from John, Sir Walter Pye of the Mynde, (Mynde Hall is still standing in a town called MuchDewchurch in Herefordshire, England) Roger, Walter,John,John Tregos Pye,Walter and Thomas Pye of Saddlebow.
Col. Edward was an ardent Catholic. He was at the Ferryland Settlement in Newfoundland and later joined Balitmore's new settlement in Maryland. His wife Ann, was the daughter of Nicholas Snell, who was sectretary to Charles Calvert, the Third Lord Baltimore.
Ann was said to have been the widow of Benjamin Rozier who died in 1681 Potohock River, Charles County Maryland. Col. Pye inherited 400 acres of land in the Barbodoes from his cousin Robert Pye of the Mynde, brother of the Pye Lord of Kilpeck. Robert was murdered. Col. Pye's brother John was granted 300 acres of land in Susses County Delaware, September 1682. Col. Pye had children John, Henry, Walter, Ann, Nicholas, Elizabeth,and Charles.
Col. Pye was born about 1646 in Boyce, or Dymmock in England and died in Maryland February 1690/91.
I hope this helps

Dear Willette,
I have come across most of this information. However, I did not know that Col. Edward Pye had a son named Henry. Do you know @ what year Henry was born and did he own a plantation in Charles County, Maryland? Do you know if he had three sons? My grandmother had written on a piece of paper that her great grandfather's father's name was Henry Pye. Her g-grandfather's name was Matthew Pye and her grandfather's name was Edward Pye, all of Charles Co., Maryland. However, I can not find any record of Matthew or Henry. Matthew was one of three brothers. Matthew married an Elizabeth Cooksey or Eliza Jane Thomas. That explanation is very unclear.
Do you know anything about any Black Pyes?
Any information is greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Melanie

Hi Melanie,
According to my records Henry was born Ca 1716, and they did own land in Charles County.
Col. Edward was married a couple of times and it is not too clear which woman mothered which children.
It appears that he had John, Henry, and Walter by Ann Lowe but in other places they are listed as the children of his wife Ann Sewell Rozier.
The names I have of his children are Charles, Henry, Walter, Ann, Nicholas and Elizabeth. I do not have the name of Henry's wife nor do I have his children. My descent is from John and that is the only line I have followed..I have heard before of Pyes that are black, and given their stint in the Barbadoes, it would not surprise me. I do know that a few of them married Eskimo (Esquimaux)women when they lived in Labrador and they also intermarried with Montaignais Indians in Canada.
Col. Pye, who inherited the 400 acres in the Barbadoes, inherited them from his cousin Robert Pye O'The Mynde, brother of the Pye Lord of Kilpeck. Robert was murdered. Robert's wife was Meliora Drax,daughter of James Drax of the Barbadoes. Robert's daughter Elizabeth married Henry Gorges of Eye and the Mynde. He was related to Sir Fernando Gorges. Col. Edward Pye's brother was John who was granted 300 acres in Sussex county Delaware in Sept 1682.

The Pyes were apparantly in Charles County and in Calvert County, Maryland.
In the will of William Digges PG Co.10 April 1714, for any claim for land, negroes, stock, etc. bought from Cousin Charles Pye, said claims to be place against brother William Digges for whom purchases were made."
The will of Winifred Mullett, Charles County, Apr.20 1685 giver Personality(?) to Edward and Ann Pye among others. Ann was witness to the will. Charles Pye witnessed the will of Sarah Queen, Feb 25 1703 Pg Co. Edward married Sarah Queen Feb 25 1735 Pg Co. Henry Queen married Margaret Pye Feb 15 1779 Charles County.
I think that is all I have except for the descent from John which is my line. John Married Henrietta Maria Neale. I hope this helps you.
Best regards...Willette Pye Wood

Any idea if Margaret and Walter Pye had any daughters, and if they did, if one of them married a _____ Bowen, and named their daughters Elizabeth, Margaret and Jane Tant Bowen?

Thanks,

I was interested in your very helpful information on the Pyes, though I remain confused about some of this family. Did I understand that you descend from the John Pye with wife Henrietta. He left a will proved 25 June 1772 in Charles Co., Md. Apparently he only had two sons so if you have the surname Pye you must descend from one of them. I will write more if you are still interested. I do have John Pye's birth date: 26 June 1730.

I am very interested in learning more about your Pye information. I am not sure if, but this sounds like it could be a relative. Thank you for any information.

I'm assuming you are the one who had stated you descended from a John and Henrietta Pye? Sometimes I find it a bit confusing on the message boards as to whom I am responding. My research has been on John Pye who died testate in Charles Co Md with will proven 25 June 1772. His wife Henrietta died in 1775. She was usually said to have been a Neale, but I think the specialists on Southern Maryland are correct in their more recent conclusion that she was herself a Pye, dau of Walter and Margaret Tant Pye. In other words, John had married his cousin. John Pye, of course, was the son of Charles and Mary (Booth) Pye and grandson of Col. Edward Pye. John and Henrietta Pye had: Mary Clare b 1756, Margaret Teresa b 1758, Charles b 1760, Anna Joseph b 1765, and Edward Joseph b 1767.
