PRATT- English: nickname for a clever trickster, from OE "praett" trick, which is found in use as a byname in the 11th century. ME pratt(e) is not recorded as a vocabulary word until the 15th century. Dims: Pratten, Pratlett. Pratt is a family name of the Marquesses and Earls of Camden. They are descended from John Pratt (d. 1573) of Devonshire. The first Earl, Sir Charles Pratt (1714-94), was a childhood friend of the elder Pitt. His son was created Marquess in 1786.
[My note: Charles Pratt was a poor English lawyer who gained fame, after being elected to Parliament and for defending the colonists involved in the Boston Tea party. I do not remember correctly, but I believe his son was a governor in Mass. He bought the house of Camden and thereby came by the title of Camden. Camden, SC is named after him. Charles Pratt was not personally born into nobility. I do not know what the relationship is to my family or is there is one at all. This was simply added as a point of interest.- Angela]

The MANNSFIELD HALL COUNTRY CLUB 3.3 m., is (L) beyond a golf course. The main part of the large two-story brick house, with Ionic portico, was built by William Pratt, in 1805. The grounds are part of an estate of Major Lawrence Smith, who in 1676 built and commanded the fort the general assembly had authorized near the falls of the Rappahannock. The family seat here, then called Smithfield, was built by Smith's son, Major Augustine Smith, who in 1716 entertained the Knights of the Golden Horseshoe. Upon the marriage of Richard Brooke to Ann Hay Taliaferro, who inherited it, Smithfield became a home of the Brooke family. Here was born Dr. Lawrence Brooke (c1752-1803), surgeon on John Paul Jone's ship, the Bonhomme Richard, and his brothers, Robert Brooke (1751-99), Governor of Virginia (1794-96), and General Francis Taliaferro Brooke (1763-1851), soldier and jurist. After Mannsfield, near by, was destroyed, its name was given to Smithfield. At 5.7 m. is a junction with a dirt road. [My note: Smith is a name associated with the William Scott Pratt line and the Taliaferro name is associated with another Va. Pratt line.]
