In the story, it says, “Roger Chillingworth...who for two or three years past had been settled in the town.” This quote shows that Chillingworth is not the father because Pearl is 3 years and Chillingworth had been in town for 3 years. Therefore he was not in town the 9 months before Hester gave birth to Pearl to get her pregnant.
