Hamilton Kerby

???? - 1767


  1. Will of Hamilton Kerby [late of Antigua but now residing in the parish] of Eltham Kent [made in 1765] proved 25/09/1767. Under the will, he left an annuity of £400 p.a. to his wife secured on his estates of Parry's (£250 p.a.) and Weir's (£150 p.a.), to reduce to £300 p.a. if she 'intermarried' after his death. He freed 'a negro woman' called Nanny, the mother of a 'mulatto boy' John to whom he left a monetary legacy. The will identified his brother-in-law Stephen Blizard (also one of his trustees) and his son Thomas Norbury Kerby and daughters Jane, Elizabeth, Ann and Sarah. In a codicil he varied the legacies his daughters to £3000 from £2000 should Jane, who was ill, die.
