      The William and Mary Quarterly, Vol. 7, No. 4 (Apr., 1899), pp. 311
      Pitt family: There is a grant, dated 1682, for 235 acres of
      land, to John Brashear (son of Robert Brashear), which had
      descended from George Stevens to the said Brashear, "as marrying
      Mary, dau. of Col. Robert Pitt." It would appear from this
      that one of Col. Robert Pitt's wives was a daughter of George
      Stevens, who patented in Isle of Wight.
