Notes for Richard PITFOLD
Named as the eldest son of Robert Pitfold of Allington in Robert's will. Richard left a will in 1597 in which he named his wife Joan and his daughter Ursula. Richard was left Gomelshay Farm in the parish of Whitchurch Canonicourm by his father. In the Inquisition Post Mortem of his father Robert made in 1589 mention was made of an indenture dated 1581 in which Robert gave lands to his son Richard and his wife Susan Clegg. This seems to indicate that Richard was married first to Susan Clegg and later to Joan.
