Claimant or beneficiary


Awarded part of the compensation for Vernon's in Antigua as assignee of an annuity with others, but possibly also as beneficiary. Charles Henry Strode (q.v.), his brother or uncle, received part of the same award in his own right.

There are two possibilities: James Cranbourne Strode (1780-1845) or (less likely) his son of the same name (c. 1812-1852).

  1. The deaths of two James Cranbourne Strodes were registered in close succession, one 1845 at Stepney and one Q1 1852 at St George Hanover Square. No will has been found for the first death. The will of James Cranbourne Strode of Hollington Sussex proved 19/03/1852 makes his uncle Charles Henry Strode his main heir.

  2. Death at the house of her father the Rev. H. Chatfield, Balcomb Sussex in the 25th year of her age, of Anne, the wife of James Cranborne Strode Esq., 'to whom William Strode lately deceased left a very handsome fortune', in 1809. James Cranborne [sic] Strode widower married Sarah Lindsay spinster at St Marylebone 10/01/1812. This is the older James Cranbourne Strode (1780-1845).
