Burgess for King William Co., Va., at the assemblies of 1772-1774 and 1775-1776. Member of the Conventions of 1774-1775-1776. Resigned from the Convention to accept commission as Deputy Commisary General in Virginia.
He married, in 1766, Mary, daughter of Col. James Macon and Elizabeth Moore, of Kennington. Col. Aylett was in the Army and died in the last major battle of the Revolution, the Battle of Yorktown, from a fever he contracted. Malaria was likely the cause as it had afflicted many troops on both sides of the war. He had inherited the Aylett plantation, "Fairfield" in King William County, from his father and left a will, written at Yorktown, in 1780, leaving his widow, Mary and four children the estate.
