Mary Ann Walton (née Stephens)

1793 - 1863

Claimant or beneficiary


Daughter of Ellys Anderson Stephens, and sister of Frances Layton, Maria Charlotte Sperling and Sophia Lucy Marriott (all of whom q.v.). Mary Ann Walton counterclaimed with her husband Charles Walton of Haverhill Essex on a number of awards in Barbados, including Byde Mill. She appears to have a claim on a different basis than her sisters, counterclaiming separately: it is assumed the claims were settled amicably.
