Hannah Tabbernor (née Fox)

1806 - 1838

Claimant or beneficiary


Claimant for slave compensation for Park Hall estate in Manchester, Jamaica, as widow of Thomas Tabbernor.

Very likely the Hannah Tabbernor of Toxteth Park who was buried in Heysham, St Peter, 22/05/1838, age 32. She married Thomas Tabbernor in Gayton, Staffordshire, 16/11/1832, maiden surname Fox. This identification is suggested further by her nomination of Thomas Berry Horsfall (q.v.) as one of her executors.

The baptism of her brother Samuel Harvey Fox in Gayton in 1824 gives parents as Edward and Harriet Fox of Gayton, father's occupation farmer.
