  • Notes 
    • George Abraham Gibbs of Pytte succeeded in 1744 to Pytte and other property in Clyst St. George as heir at law (after his father) to his great uncle George Gibbs, by arranging for the ending of a tenancy to the family of Rev. F. Pease, rector of the parish, created under dispositions made by the said George. In 1749 that family also transferred to him 15 acres in Clyst St. Mary (part of the "Manor of Ashmore") which were subject to the charitable charges which the same George had imposed on them. He bought Court Place in Clyst St. George, made 100 acres in that parish.
      He was a Presbyterian in the early part of his life. In October 1745 he was enrolled in an Association of Exeter men in support of the King against the Young Pretender. He was one of the surgeons (eventually chief surgeon) of the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, Exeter from 1747 to 1781, and thereafter on its standing committee. His residence in Exeter during his married life was in Palace Yard, Cathedral Close.
      Becoming bankrupt in 1789 through the failure of business in which he was engaged with his son Antony, he lost all his property in Clyst St. George and Clyst St. Mary, including Pytte, which was bought in 1790 by his son-in-law, Rev. Charles Crawley. He used the arms of Gibbs of Fenton like his great uncle George and his cousins of Exeter.
