  Notes for John Brasseur:
From Will Abstracts from the Isle of Wight Co.:
There is a grant, dated 1682, for 235 acres of land to John Brashear (son of Robert Brashear), which had descended from George Stevens to the said Brashear, "as marrying Mary, dau. of Col. Robert Pitt." It would appear from this that one of Col. Robert Pitt's wives was a daughter of George Stevens, who patented in Isle of Wight.



      2532. Lt. Col. Tristram Norsworthy, born Bet. 1612 - 1616 in Devon, England; died Abt. 1656 in Nansemond Co., VA. He was the son of 5064. George Norsworthy and 5065. Elizabeth Bennett. He married 2533. Ann Bef. 1632 in Devon, England.

      2533. Ann, born Bef. 1617; died Bef. 1700 in Nansemond Co., VA.

Notes for Lt. Col. Tristram Norsworthy:
First of the family in Virginia

Patented 200 acres of land in Nanswmond on 6/5/1639 "toward the head of a bay behind the Ragged Islands". On the same date he patented 150 acres near Daniel Gookin for his own personal adventure and that of his wife Ann and a servant.

He was Burgess for Upper Norfolk Co. or Nansemond Co. in 1641.
Became the Sheriff of Isle of Wight when it became a shire.
I have found no link yet, however, I presume that Tristram Norsworthy came from Devonshire, England. Norsworthy or Notsworthy is a village in the Parrish of Widecombe on the Moor, Devonshire.

A deed dated 1 May 1690 of Tristram Norsworthy (Isle of Wight Co.) implies he has at least two daughters: Sarah and Elizabeth. The only reasonable assumption that can be drawn (based on current data) is that this Tristram Norsworthy had these two daughters (perhaps among others). [W&M Qtrly vol 7, pg. 246]

     
Children of Tristram Norsworthy and Ann are:
  i.   Johannah (Joan) Norsworthy, born Bef. 1632; died Abt. 1680; married John Biggs; born Abt. 1620 in Engand; died Abt. 1696 in Lower Norfolk Co., VA.
  Notes for John Biggs:
The wife of John Biggs has also been reported as Johanna Sawyer; also, at least once as Johannah Norsworthy Sawyer, indicating that Johannah Norsworthy may have been the widow of a Mr. Sawyer.

  ii.   Sarah (?) Norsworthy
  iii.   Elizabeth (?) Norsworthy
  iv.   Capt. George Norsworthy, born 1632 in Devon, England; died Bef. 9 Dec 1689 in Nansemond Co., VA; married Elizabeth Pitt Bef. 16521013; born Abt. 1637 in probably Isle of Wight Co., VA; died Unknown.
  Notes for Capt. George Norsworthy:
On 9 Dec 1689, in a deed from John Smith and wife Anne to John [McMichael] Mickmichall, 20 acres ... bounded by Capt. George Norsworthy, late of Nansemond Co.


  v.   Thomas Norsworthy, born Bef. 1640; died Aft. 1662; married Susannah Moone; born Abt. 1642 in Isle of Wight Co., VA.
  Notes for Susannah Moone:

  1266 vi.   John Norsworthy, born Abt. 1640; died Bef. 20 Apr 1670 in Isle of Wight Co., VA; married Frances English Abt. 1662 in Isle of Wight Co., VA.
