David La Tourrette (1699-1764) died on 20 March 1764, having written his will on 23 February 1764. It was proved in Richmond county Surrogates Court on 23 March 1764, and administration was granted to the executors on 25 April 1764. No other records for this probate record, such as an inventory, account, or distribution, was found in the online database.
David La Tourrette's wife was Catharine (Poillon) La Tourrette (1712-????), who he married in about 1730. They had four children, Jacque (1731-1785), Marie (1734-1786), Catharine (1737-1808) and David (1738-1808). All four children are named in the will. Marie La Tourrette married Jonathan Lewis as his third wife in about 1756, and bore nine children.
The will names five executors - David's wife, Catharine, his sons John (presumably Jacques) and David, his son-in-law Jonathan Lewis, and his brother Henry La Tourrette. When the will was approved by the Lieutenant Governor, the last two were not mentioned.
