Note: Quite a lot of information has been gained concerning ROBERT PITFOLD ( -1586) of Allington, and of his family, mainly through the detailed will he made in 1583. In 1545 Robert appears in the tax returns for the parish of Stoke Abbott. In 1552 he had a grant from the Borough of Bridport for a piece of land in Allington, whilst in the same year he is listed as one of the church wardens at Allington. In his will Robert names his wife Joan, his sister Joan Bilke, and lists his
sons in order of seniority. Although he names John the Elder as his sixth son, and Henry as his eighth son, he makes no mention of a seventh son, so presumably this son had already died by 1583. Robert was an extensive land owner and his will
names land in the parishes of Allington, Whitchurch Canonicorum, Long Bredy, Marshwood, Symondsbury, Walditch, Shipton Gorge and Powerstock. He also gives details of those he bought the lands from, the names of tenants who occupied them, and
how they were to be divided amongst his children. Robert died in 1586 and was buried at Whitchurch Canonicorum.
