Anna Maria Wightwick
Profile & Legacies Summary
1777 - 1840
Claimant or beneficiary
Awarded a residual interest in the compensation (after other awardees including an annuitant) for the enslaved people on Nibbs estate in Antigua as mortgagee. A codicil of 1829 to the will of Samuel Martin (q.v.) the owner of Nibbs showed him paying her £150 p.a., presumably reflecting the loan of £3000 detailed in the compensation records.
- Daughter of John Wightwick and Elizabeth (née Browne), baptised Sunninghill Berkshire 1777. Anna Maria Wightwick age 63 of Chertsey was buried there 31/12/1840. Will of Anna Maria Wightwick spinster of Chertsey proved 04/02/1841. The will is short and uninformative: she left monetary legacies to a number of individuals including Samuel Martin, and made her sister Winifred her residuary legatee. The will of her father John Wightwick of Chertsey Surrey proved 20/01/1817 sheds no further light on her path to the interest in the compensation.
