Notes for Richard Luttrell:
From "Westmoreland County Deeds and Wills 1723 - 1738
Richard Littrell made his mark as a witness to the Will of George Lamkin of Cople Parish, Westmoreland County, VA on 21 Apr 1718. The Will was recorded 20 Apr 1727.
This is the earliest document I have seen for Richard Luttrell. Does this indicate that he was a resident of Westmoreland County in 1718 prior to moving to Fauquier County in 1722? Simon Luttrell, son of Robert Luttrell, was a resident of Westmoreland Co. (his Will of 1723). Is this evidence that Richard and Simon were likely brothers? GL 10/27/21
Source: Allied Families of Read, Corbin, Luttrell Bywaters, by A.M. Prichard, Staunton, Virginia 1930.
By grant of 12 March 1722, the Proprietors of the Northern Neck of Virgina conveyed unto "Richd Lutterall" of Stafford County, a track of 354 acres of land lying on "Brent Town Run" in Stafford County, Virginia; and, by subsequent grant of 7 July 1745, Lord Fairfax conveyed unto Richard "Lutteral" of Prince William County, a track of 58 acres of land adjoining the "said Lutterall's other land on a drain of Town Run." By deed of 26 November 1760, recorded in Fauquier County, Virginia, Richard Luttrell acquired from George Crump a track of 240 acres of land on a branch of Negro Run, which was granted to John Crump by the Proprietors of the Northern Neck on the 29 July 1745. By deed of 26 November 1760, Richard Luttrell, Sr., of Fauquier County, conveyed to his son, Samuel Luttrell, 70 acres of the 350 acres acquired from the Proprietors, as above shown.
Stafford County was erected in 1664 from Westmoreland; King George was taken from Richmond County in April, 1721; Prince William, embracing parts of Stafford and King George , was made a county in March 1731; and Fauquier County was erected from Prince William on the 1 May 1759.
Richard luttrell gives a new meaning to an address change.When he established his home the area was called Northumberland. And the Parish was Hamilton, taken from Overwharton and became Dettington and Leeds Parish. .Prince William County split and Elk and Cedar Run became LEEDS Parish located in FAUQUIER County. Thus Richard had Northumberland in Overwharton ; Prince William in Hamilton.. finally Fauquier in Parish of Leeds. Fauquier was established in 1759. He never moved and still had an address change.
Richard purchased the land adjacent to Michael Dermont’s in 1722. Michael Dermont died in 1730 and mentions his grandchildren, the children of Richard and Mary Dermont. Richard and Mary Dermont must have married between 1722 and 1730, if Luttrell didn’t already know Dermonts before land grant.
on a deed dtd 27 July 1745
"Richard Lutterel of Pr. William Co. 58 A. in said Co. Surv. George Byrn. Adj. Lutterel's other land, on Town Run, Crossby's now Edw'd Lawrence, Thomas Hooper, Thomas Berry's now Thomas Conway's."
referred to in Richard Sr. Will as "my new patent of land containing 58 Acres" inh. by Richard Luttrell, Jr.
Bought 240 acres adjacent to the south end of the 422-acre Michael Dermont, Sr, grant, Nov 26, 1760, Fauquier Co, VA. By deed of 26 November 1760, recorded in Fauquire County, Virginia, Richard Luttrell acquired from George Crump a track of 240 acres of land on a branch of Negro Run, which was granted to John Crump by the Proprietors of the Northern Neck on the 29 July 1745.

ADDL INFO RE: Michael Dermont
Michael Dermont's first documented presence in Virginia is his 1712 grant for 248 acres of land on Accokeek Run in Stafford County, VA. The deed says that the land adjoined a Norman plantation and was already occupied by Michael.
Ten years later, in 1722, Michael received a grant for 636 acres of land on Town Run, near Negro Run, in Stafford County. In 1723 he sold the 248 acres purchased in 1712,
to Augustine Washington, father of George Washington.
In 1724 he purchased a grant of 422 acres which adjoined the 636 acres he had purchased in 1722.
Other researchers show Richard Luttrell to be the son of James Luttrell, the immigrant.
The only documented child of James Luttrell I have found is John Luttrell in St. Stephens Parish, Northumberland Co., VA - GL
