1783 - 1815


Son of Sir John Taylor 1st bart. (who d. 1786) of Lysson Hall Jamaica and Elizabeth Houghton or Haughton. Nephew and heir of Simon Taylor. Died in London, leaving £100,000. Simon Taylor's estates passed under his own will to Simon Richard Brissett Taylor's sister Susannah, married to George Watson Taylor (q.v.).

  1. The will of Sir Simon Richard Brissett Taylor of Great Cumberland Place proved 10/06/1815 was a very short document made in November 1811 when Simon Richard Brissett Taylor was about to leave for Jamaica to visit his uncle Simon Taylor. This will left his residuary estate to his younger sister Martha Taylor spinster; administration of the will was granted in 1839 to George Lunn [?] a legatee. Two sets of codicils, found apparently separately, were proved, one on 12/07/1815 (giving annuities to what appear to be servants) and one on 03/01/1816, which outlined Simon's intention to buy his mother a place in the country in 1816 for £10,000, and left a legacy to a man [Lunn?] for long service.


PROB 11/1570/60; PROB 11/1571/84; PROB 11/1576/48.
