Dame Ann McGilchrist then Sheridan (née Fearon)


Sheridan Place

Hampton (Middlesex)


Sheridan Place in Hampton is named after Dame Ann Sheridan, who purchased in 1804 what later became the Beveree estate.


'SHERIDAN PLACE – which leads past Twickenham Preparatory School and Beveree House is built on part of the old Beveree Estate. Sheridan Place recalls the name of a previous owner of the site, Lady Ann Sheridan, who bought it in 1804. It would appear that Lady Ann – married to Sir Henry Sheridan, was, together with her husband, a part owner of the Mount Hindmost Estate in Jamaica – in other words, she was a slave owner – the estate produced sugar, rum and cattle.'
