Robert Pitt Will
Posted by: Susan Aycock (ID *****9153) Date: June 17, 2002 at 15:59:49

I found this will in VA vital Records...

"Will of Robert Pitt, of Newport, In Isle of Wight Co.: Bro John Monro, 3 sisters Henrietta Monro, Sarah Monro, and Mary Monro, Uncle James Pitt, Unkle Henry Pitt, Unkle John Pitt. "I give and bequeath my whole right & title of the town land as never having recieved any satisfation for it to the use of the church for a Gleab, or as the Court and vesrty shall think fitt."; to Mary Pitt, dau of Mr. Thomas Pitt, and to Elizabeth Bridger, dau of Capt Joseph Bridger, 10 pds sterling each; Mary Mosscrop, dau of Thomas Mosscrop, and to Sarah Watt; dau of John Watt, to each like sums. To Martha, dau of Mr. John Nosworthy, and to Jane Smith, dau of Coll. Arthur Smith, and to my three sisters before mentioned to each 5000 pds. Tob.; my father in law Andrew Monro and Uncle Henry Pitt, Exors. 10 July 1711"

Robert Pitt is the grandson of John Pitt and Olive Hardy. Their sons James, John and Henry are mentioned in the above will. Robert's mother was Sarah Smith who married 1st Robert Pitt and then Rev. Andrew Monro. Robert's "father by law" or step father was Andrew Monro, their children were the John, Henrietta, Sarah & Mary listed above.

I have 2 questions.
1. Does anyone have a verifiable birthdate for ANY ONE mentioned above?
2. Who are the all women listed after his gift to the church?

Thanks for your help
