George Morton Pitt (1693 – 9 February 1756) was a Madras-born British politician and administrator who served as the President of Fort St George from 1730 to 1735.
==Fort St George==
George Morton hailed from the well-known Pitt family of England but had many links to his birthplace, Madras. Son of John Pitt, consul at Masulipatam, and his wife Sarah Charlton, he was a grandson of Edward Pitt and Rachel Morton. His mother was the widow of Thomas Wavell, second of council at Fort St George. His father-in-law was Charles Bugden, secretary of the East India Company at Fort St George.〔R. Sedgwick (ed. ), ''The History of Parliament: the House of Commons 1715–1754'', 1970〕
After education in England he became a merchant at Fort St George. Briefly returning to England he became M.P. for Old Sarum in 1722 then vacated his seat to go back to Madras and take up an initial minor office with the East India Company in 1724 and was then to take up important and lucrative positions with them.
His appointments were: registrar of excise office, January 1724; second of council at Madras; deputy governor at Fort St David and finally governor of Fort St George 1730–1735.〔
Like his distant cousin, Thomas Pitt, he became Governor of the Madras Presidency at Fort St. George. He succeeded James Macrae in this post on 14 May 1730.〔Thomas Seccombe, (‘Macrae, James (c.1677–1744)’ ), rev. I. B.
