Rev. William Rose

???? - 1829


Anglican clergyman, long-standing Rector of Beckenham and of Carshalton, son-in-law of Joseph Forster Barham I (q.v.) and friend of John Newton. He was a beneficiary of lsave-wealth through his marriage settlement, but there is ambiguity as to with the himself was a slave-owner: if so, then probably of Rose Hill in St Andrew. There is a monument to Rev. William Rose (d. 1829) in All Saints Carshalton in Surrey. The William Rose of Kingston Surrey [Jamaica] whose will was proved in 1840 was almost certainly the son of Rev. William Rose, rector of Carshalton and of Beckenham, and Elizabeth Dorothy or Dorothea, the daughter of Joseph Foster Barham I (q.v.). The will of Rev. William Rose of Beckenham proved 02/05/1829 makes no reference to a son William but identifies his surviving daughters as Charlotte and Louisa Jane. The will of Louisa Jane Rose of Clifton was in turn proved 16/09/1872, effects £12,000.


Will of William Rose of Beckenham, PROB 11/1756/102.
