London

London is, of course, not in Gloucestershire, being about 100 miles further east. However, our researches have led there as various family members migrated to the city (especially to Westminster) in the eighteenth century and we have traced their descendants. Apart from anything else, it has been interesting to compare the occupations of this section of the Pitman family with those who remained closer to home.
