Thomas Wilson of Warnford Court

???? - 1829


Merchant of Warnford Court, who died in 1829 leaving £120,000. His executors were awarded the compensation in a claim for Grand Roy estate in Grenada, the compensation for which Samuel Marryat and Thomas Wilson had reportedly claimed as trustees of Jos. Marryat. Thomas Wilson of Warnford Court was certainly the trustee of Joseph Marryat under the latter's will of 1824, which refers to the Grandroi estate on Grenada, but was dead before the compensation process began: his inclusion on the claim form must have been by an error. His father-in-law by his second marriage was Thomas Edwards of Coleman Street.
