Families covered: Pitt of Kyre Wyard (Cure Wyard), Pitt of la Pyrn

(1) When this page was first launched, 3 cross-references to this family were found already in the database. One spelt the family name as Pitt but another spelt it as Pitts whilst the third spelt it as Pytts.
(2) Kyre Wyard appears to be the modern spelling of the parish which nowadays appears to be in Worcestershire, close to the border with Herefordshire, rather than in Shropshire. Visitation (Shropshire) shows the family as of Curewyard (later Cure-Wyard) whilst Visitation (Worcestershire) shows it as "de la Pyrn", except for one addition by the Harleian Editor which shows Sir Edward as "of Curewiard".
