Son of Col. Landon Carter and Elizabeth Wormeley.
Married Judith Fauntleroy of Richmond Co.

Born at "Sabine Hall", Richmond Co., Va
Died at “Pittsylvania”, Prince William Co., VA

Landon Carter, son of Robert "King" Carter, left his 2,823 acre tract, bordering on Young's Branch, and his share of the Great Bull Run Tract to be equally divided between his sons, Landon (1738-1801) and John (1739-1789). Between 1760 and 1770, before the land was divided, Landon built "Pittsylvania" and John built "Sudley" to the northward.

During the War between the States, Pittsylvania was still in the ownership of Carters. The house, a large frame structure painted the color of dark brick, was called "the brown house" by wounded soldiers, who were brought here for treatment. In the Second Battle of Manassas, Pittsylvania witnessed on August 30, 1862, the decisive defeat of the Federal forces. Therefore, the Union troops who burned the house soon afterwards must have taken keen delight in the conflagration.
