Named for an uncle who as speaker of the House of Burgesses had become one of the most beloved and accomplished public figures in the colony, Peyton Randolph of Wilton (early 1750s–1784) faced great expectations. Though he perceived himself as a member of the English nobility, and so recorded here, this Wilton heir nonetheless became an ardent patriot, rejecting British colonial policy of the 1760s and 1770s that he felt threatened his social status. It was presumably Randolph's impassioned political stance that caused his loyalist brother-in-law "English Lewis" Burwell to knife him at the dinner table in 1775. Both survived the altercation.
