The Pillsbury Family

From Pillsbury Grange in Derbyshire, to the Colonies, to California and beyond
The name Pillsbury has many variations and appeared in the Doomsday Book.  

Our line of the family has deep roots in the Transcendental Movement, working for Abolition, Rights for Women, Education for Women, and other issues which imposed limitations on the right of the individual to choose for themselves.  

Arthur Clarence Pillsbury was the inheritor of these values, as were his children, Ernest Sargent Pillsbury, Jr.,, Grace Sylvia Pillsbury Young and Dr. Arthur Francis Pillsbury.  

Other lines of our family should also be remembered and studied as knowing these people reveals us to ourselves.  

​As time permits, and as Executive Producer for Content for Freedom TV, I am building out these stories, which will be included for American Lives Network on Freedom TV Networks.  American Lives is Interactive Television, with the same capacity for allowing audience participation which changed the outcome of the 1992 Presidential Campaign.  That story is HERE.

Especially if you are family, get in touch!

     Best,
     Melinda Pillsbury-Foster
