Georgina Welch

???? - 1816


Youngest daughter of Richard Welch of Hyde estate in Jamaica. Inherited £2000 in the will of her father (proved 1809). She came to an agreement over payment of her legacy, presumably converting it into a mortgage on the estate. Died October 1816 at East Cowes.


St Thomas-in-the-Vale no. 294; memorial from William Lewis George Thomas and Robert Lewis Fitzgerald 09/04/1835: their wives were daughters of Richard Welch esq. formerly Chief Justice, Hyde estate left by will for payment of legacies of £2500 each to his younger children after payment of annuity to widow (who died in 1813). A son, also Richard, died in 1809. A third daughter Flavell [?= Favel] died intestate, her remaining sisters each shared £500 of her portion; the youngest daughter Georgina died unmarried, so her property went equally to 2 surviving sisters. So each had £4500, received interest at 5% until 1831, since then arrears have accumulated.
