Only daughter and heir of James Stephens of Camerton, Somerset, and his wife Elizabeth Patterson Wallen. Her maternal grandfather was Thomas Wallen of Jamaica. Married Herbert Newton Jarrett IV in 1801. They had four children and Herbert Newton Jarrett IV died in 1811. He outlined in his will the marriage settlement of 1801 that involved the Kent estate and gave his wife £1000 p.a. Anne Jarrett was guardian to her children after their father's death. Lived at Grove Place, Hampshire, and Cavendish Square. In 1818 she moved to Camerton House. Died in 1830; buried at Camerton Church, Somerset.

  1. Will of Anne Jarrett of Camerton House Somerset [made in 1822] proved 23/08/1830. In the will she rehearsed her marriage settlement of 1801 and her husband's will dated 1809 so far as concerned the raising of £10,000 from the Camerton estates in Somerset that she brought to the marriage for her daughters Anne and Mary: Mary had since died, and Anne had received £5000 (and a further sum of £1666 13s 4d, one-third of the other £5000) on her marriage to Rev. William Gooch, so that Anne Jarrett [the testator] left a further £5000 in trust with £1000 to her son Stephen and a further £3333 6s 8d to Anne Gooch; in a codicil of 1830 she asked her son John to raise by £4000 the amount Stephen was to receive, and left £5000 to her grandson Herbert Wilson Gooch.
