Note

Carolyn Barnwell notes: Edward Pitt, who was evidently an "entrepreneur" (or rather rogue). He owned two farms and a blacksmith's shop in Brighton. He was also a collector of tolls at various turnpikes. I have a copy of a newspaper article from The Times 13/8/1787 giving court case information about Edward trying to extort too much toll money from travellers!
