Early American Faith: Pardon Tillinghast

EarlyAmerFaithPardon Tillinghast was born in the 1620’s in Streat, Sussex, England.  Most historians believe he was born in 1622 but a baptismal record indicates he was baptized on January 2, 1625.  He was the son of Pardon and Sarah (Browne) Tillinghast and his paternal grandparents were John and Alice (Pardon) Tillinghast.

  1. Thanks for the history. Pardon is a grandfather (nine generations back). When I was a boy, I was told my grandfather had a deed to the first baptist church of Providence. I never saw it though. This story is most interesting to me because I am Baptist and a pastor and I work just like my ancestors providing my own means while planting a baptist church in Maine.
