|Notes / History||George Pitt was born at London House, on Whitford Lane (now London Road).
George inherited his father’s successful drapery business and married Priscilla, daughter of John Finch Marsh and his wife Hannah, both prominent members of the Society of Friends.
The young couple had several children, three of whom died in infancy. The pain of these events led them to leave London House and move to Berkeley Cottage in Lower Mitcham. It was here that their son John was born.
