      John was born in 1735 in Lambborn, Dunham, England, the first child of Richard Fawcett (4-6) and Elizabeth Brown. His first wife was Elizabeth Evelyn Sutton. They had two children listed in John's will: Thomas (6-1) and Polly (6-2). Elizabeth must have died before 1787 because John married Ferribee Pittman 6 February 1787 in Orange County, North Carolina. She was listed as his wife in his will of book C page 94 dated 6 March 1797 and proved May 1797. The will was witnessed by Richard and Thomas Fossett. John's brother Sam was named executor along with Thomas and Ezra Cate.

Melanie McKinnon (Southwell, UK) says...
Sir Richard Sutton’s eldest daughter Elizabeth Evelyn Sutton deserted her husband Rev. George Markham in 1789 and ten children, for John Fawcett, a captain in the militia. The marriage ended in divorce in 1803 when Markham (Dean of York) petitioned the king’s bench, Westminster against Captain Fawcett, for criminal conversation with his wife and obtained a judgement against him for 7000l damages.
