Rev. Thomas Webster of Bath

???? - 1816


Rev. Thomas Webster of Kingsthorne [sic] County of Fife was among a group of individuals purchasing, for a total of £15,000, annuities from John Mills secured on the latter's estates and enslaved people on Nevis in 1774, when for £250 he purchased an annuity of £25 p.a. for the lives of himself and Ann Webster daughter of George Webster of Bucklersbury London druggist aged 13. Rev. Thomas Webster left £120,000 in 1816, at least some of which had been inherited from his West India merchant brothers David Webster and James Webster (the connection between the purchaser of the annuitant in 1774 and the man dying of Bath in 1816 has been made by LBS based on the presence of Dr Thomas Webster brother of David and James Webster at Kinghorn in Fife before his move to Bath).

  1. The will of Rev. Thomas Webster Doctor of Divinity of Bath was proved 11/07/1816. The main beneficiary was his great-nephew James Graham or Grame who changed his name to Webster under the terms of the will.
