As residuary heir of Thomas Lucas of Lee, Thomas Lucas Wheeler was heir to an unnamed estate [but almost certainly Lucas's] on St Kitts, subject to the annuity of Thomas Lucas's widow Eliza. Anthony Twist characterises her interest in the estate as a life-interest which he says she almost immediately sold after her re-marriage to John Julius Angerstein.
