    The way in which I have interpreted the will of Richard3, I believe it
    was Jamima Kirk who married the Baker.

    Sorry I confused you, I did make an error. Let's see if this helps:

    Richard3, (Richard2, Richard1) married a daughter of Thomas and Mary
    [correction, not Martha] (Seaman) Pearsall. As far as I have been able
    to determine there is no proof as to the given name of Richard3 wife,
    but is generally believed to have been Mary. If you know of any "proof"
    that she was in fact Mary, I would be pleased to learn of it. The will
    of Charles Mott - as given in my initial reply - names both Henry
    Pearsall and Richard Valentine as brothers-in-law. Charles was married
    to Deborah Pearsall, also a daughter of Thomas and Mary. This together
    with Richard3's own will which names Ann Pearsall in one place as
    "sister" and in another as "sister-in-law" provides additional
    circumstantial evidence.

    It was Richard3's son, Richard4, who was married to Phebe Robbins.
    Richard4 left a will dated 28 Mar 1763, proved 29 Apr 1766 in which he
    mentions his wife Phebe.

    Nathaniel and Thomas were brothers and sons of Henry Pearsall and his
    wife Ann. I have seen any number of statements saying that she was Ann
    Valentine, but never any proof. As a matter of fact there is an article
    in The Record, Vol. 119, pp. 81-2, by Matthew Wood, "The Family of
    Moyles Williams One of the Original Proprietors of Hempstead, LI" which
    names her Ann Pankhurst. There is also a follow-up article in The Record
    by John G. Hunt, "English Notes on Ann Pankhurst, Ancestress of Certain
    Williams, Pearsall and Halstead Families of Long Island".

    In a nutshell: Ann Pankhurst, bc 1619 of Sussex, England was the
    daughter of Nicholas Pankhurst and Barbara Geere, the latter a daughter
    of Thomas Geere. Nicholas "Panckehurst" left a will dated 26 Apr 1620,
    proved 21 May 1622, recorded at the East Sussex Records Office at Lewes.
    Barbara (Geere) Panckhurst left a will dated 4 May 1623, proved 22 May
    1623, recorded also at Lewes. Thomas Geere left a will dated 4 Apr 1621,
    proved 15 May 1624, record at Lewes. Ann - at the age of 16 - was in the
    company of here uncle, Dennis Geere, together with his wife and others
    when she set sail from London on 15 June 1635 aboard the "Abigail" for
    New England. Between 1636-38 she married Michael (Moyles) Williams(on)
    and for a time resided in RI before going to Long Island. Moyles
    Williams died in Dec 1644 and shortly after she married Henry Pearsall.

    Ann and Michael had a least one daughter, Hannah, who married Timothy
    Halstead, son of Jonas.

    Ann is believed to have been the mother of all four of Henry Pearsell's
    sons.

    Hope this helps.
