      [recno 12225] from: Rowley, Massachusetts "Mr. Ezeci Rogers Plantation" 1639 - 1850 by Amos Everett Jewett & Emily Mabel Adams Jewett 1946
      p120 In Rowley herdsmen were appointed as early as 1650 "Cowes went out under the keeping of George Kilbourne & John Grant in year 53 upon the 25th of April young cattle inder the keeping of Andrew Hiden .... "
      p122 Early in the history of Rowley small enclosures of stone or wood were built for the confining of cattle, shhep, horses or swine found running at large, and men were regularly chosen to the office of pinder. The first one of record is John Palmer, 1650-1. Charles Brown was chosen in 1652, and Andrew Hidden in 1654: James Bailey or his son John and Samuel Stickney, 1660. Three pinders were elected in 1661 and six in 1663-4. Pinder is an old English word meaning the poundkeeper of a manor, and pinfold the enclosure in which the animals were confined.. 'Pinder', pinfold' and 'gates' seem to have been peculiar to Rowley , as they are seldom if ever found in the records of neighbouring towns. They may have been common in Yorkshire where most of the Rowley settlers originated, or the people of this town more tenacious of the old English names.
