I gather you are interested in the surname of Pimm, I have a one name study of my surname 'Urch' and one of my interest's is a Samuel Urch who married Sarah Pimm in Mark on the 30 June 1755.

I will never know Samuel Urch's birth or baptism because he was born of an Anabaptist's family and therefore was never baptised, so no record exists.

I do know he had other siblings including a Richard Urch who married a Hannah Nuttycombe and a Thomas Urch who married Sarah maiden name unknown and two sisters but have not yet identified his wife Sarah Pimm.

Do you know of her.

Are you related to the Worle Postman, William PIMM?

There is this account of his inquest in the Bristol Mercury of Saturday 21 January 1854

Jan.17 at Kewstoke, [Inquest] on the body of William Pimm, the Worle and Weston postman, aged 46.

The deceased drove a dog in a small cart, and, on the night of Saturday, the 14th, stopped at the Masons' Arms at Milton and drank some beer, and was thoughtless enough to give his dog three glasses, and left about ten past nine, not much the worse for liquor, but in ten minutes was found dead by the side of the road, within sixty yards of the house he had previously left.  It is conjectured that he had driven down the hill, where the road was in a dangerous state, and that the vehicle in which he was riding had upset, by coming into contact with a bank of earth.  Mr Hardwick, a surgeon, had examined the body and gave it as his opinion to the jury that the neck had been dislocated and that the base of the skull was fractured.  Verdict "Found Dead". 

This is thought to have happened going down Baytree Road not far from what is now the Windsor Castle Public House.  Does anyone know if it was ever called the Masons' Arms?
