The Pitt family

These Pitts are my direct ancestors.

John Pitt came from the West Country (either Wiltshire or Gloucestershire) to South Wales, to work as a stone mason (my theory is that he followed the railways and worked on constructing these).

He married Sarah Davies and they had five children. I’ve constructed Bios for each of these. John died in 1865 of small pox and Sarah re-married 3 years later (to James Williams). Agnes Pitt Williams was the daughter of William John Pitt and Emily (nee Williams) and taught at Glascoed Board School.
