Claimant or beneficiary


Unsuccessful claimant for the compensation for the Belvidere estate on Antigua, and Speaker of the House of Assembly on Antigua whose daughter Martha Eliza Sanderson married in 1841 George Fosbery Lyster, in the ODNB as civil engineer. To date no death-date or probate has been traced for him: Thomas Sanderson was shown as still the Speaker in Antigua in the Dublin Almanac and General Register of Ireland for 1849.

  1. Thomas Sanderson had been 'of the firm of' [probably partner in] Robert Hyndman, Son & Co. Given that he married [Mary] Elizabeth Hyndman in Dublin in 1815, he was also son-in-law of Robert Hyndman.
