 PARDON (m): This Puritan "virtue name," referring to the pardon offered by Christ to the repentant sinner, is a marker name for the Tillinghast family of Rhode Island. Readers are warned that a royal line attributed in many older printed sources to the immigrant, Rev. Pardon Tillinghast, was broken in the middle 1980s.
