No Dates


Original claimant for the compensation for Monteros estate in Antigua as owner-in-fee. The compensation was paid to various creditors, the main one being the trustees of the marriage settlement of Henry Anthony Hardman, as mortgagees.

  1. Henry Anthony Hardman's first wife was Dorothy Clark. Henry was a Lieutenant in the 7th West India Regiment when they married in St Phillips, Antigua, 10/10/1807. They had at least one child, Elizabeth Theresa Willis Hardman, born in Aruba c. 1816. Dorothy died 11/02/1820: "In Burton-crescent, in her 31st year, Dorothy, wife of H. A. Hardman, esq., of Grenada, and daughter of Thomas Clarke, esq., of Monterose [sic], Antigua." It is possible, however, that the mortgage which formed part of the marriage settlement was for Hardman's second marriage, to Mary Armstrong, as one of the trustees awarded compensation was Mary's uncle Richard Trench (q.v.).

  2. The claimant may be Thomas Clarke senior, father of Dorothy, or more likely Thomas Clark junior, her brother. Thomas Clarke junior married Octavia Wyke at St Philip, Antigua, 18/10/1824. They had at least one child, Charles Dilkes, baptised 14/05/1833 when Thomas junior was described as "Perham [sic: Parham] New Work, Planter".
