Niece of Daniel Munro or Monro junior (d. 1766) from whom she inherited Crescent estate in St Mary, Jamaica, in trust. Daughter of William Jenkyns (himself the son of Tobias Jenkins or Jenkyns, 1660-1730, MP for York) and Mary Munro or Monro. She married Lucius Tucker at some point before 1772. Unusually, she made a will in her own right in 1770 when her husband was alive, in which she made her father William Jenkyns her executor and legatee. He was granted probate so far as concerned the 1/5th of the sugar produced on Crescent to which Fanny Tucker was entitled while it was in the possession of her husband Lucius Tucker.
