Thanks for your response. I have suspected that Sarah Tillett's maiden name was Scarborough but I have not found any proof. What proof do you have that she was.
William Tillett was dead by 4 Jul 1732.
Sarah Tillett was appointed Administratrix of William's estate on 4 July 1732. Sureties were Capt. John Norton, Charles (x) Scarborough (Charles Scarborough was from Pasquotank Co.) Witnesses were Otho Holland & Jno. Martyn. His estate was worth 150 pounds.
I had thought that William Tillett died in Currituck Precinct where his land was. [Albemarle County
Formed in 1664, original county subdivided 1668 and discontinued 1689.]

I would also like to know who their children were, if any?
I would appreciate any info on early Tillett's.
