It appears that the "Fitz Randolph" surname, `Fitz` meaning "son of", may or may not have been dropped from the family name with Joseph born 1750. Research is still in progress. [3]

Surname note

In this Fitz Randolph family, Fitz appears to have been used by all family members in the family where Joseph is a child and where he is a father as their middle name as if part of their surname: In some censuses, the family is recorded using FitzRandolph or Fitz Randolph. The current consensus is therefore to use the surname Fitz Randolph as Last Name at Birth for Joseph, his siblings and father. (Need to confirm how Fitz Randolph was used in the Joseph Fitz Randolph family in legal documents and when births were recorded.) Please don't hesitate to contact the profile manager if you think this decision should be reviewed!
