No, this still could be correct. Do you remember what Lewis Patrick was doing in this time frame? He was settling his mother's estate. After the estate was settled, he went back to court stating that all of the assets had not be reported. The additional assets included a negro woman name Chitty and two small or male children. It is difficult to read whether it was written as two small children or two male children. The children were never said to be Chitty's, and they were not actually identified as slaves. I looked at the document again today just to make sure. Shortly after he filed the disclosure about Chitty and the children tLewis Patrick filed to take Peter Mallett in as a bound boy to learn to be a planter. Warren County is next to Mecklenberg County, VA where the Malletts lived and they were know to have large land and slave holdings. I think that it is likely this is where Peter Mallett came from. It is likely he was fathered by a Mallett from Mecklenberg County.
