Pinn is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. In this case the original bearers of the surname Pinn were known as the dwellers by the pine trees.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution.
