   This name is variously written in the early records, Pinson, Pincin, and Pinchin, and the last accords with the uniform pronunciation.   It is undoubtedly the same name as Pynchon, and Pinson is probably the original and true spelling.   Wm. Pinson (so spelt) of Wolverhampton Co., of Stafford, Eng., gave a power of attorney to Richard Brown of N. E. 1658.   William Pynchon, of Roxbury 1630, went to England 1652, and d. there 1662.   Who else of the name could then have had occasion to give this power?   Besides, Brown came over the same year, 1630, and was a ruling Elder and Representative at Watertown.—John Pincin of Chesterfield m. Judith Curtis of Scit. 1788.   Abner Pincin m. Hannah Cowen 1770.—Welcome m. Deborah Crooker of P. 1818.—Rebecca m. Southworth Gammons Jr. of M. 1819.
