Rachel Frith (née Akers)

1754 - 1806


Rachel and Thomas Frith reportedly mortgaged an estate called Friths on St Vincent in 1776 to Nathaniel Smith (q.v.).

  1. There are or were memorials in Yalding parish church to Jane Ramsay, widow of Rev. James Ramsay of Teston, who died 19/10/1804 aged 65 and Rachel Frith, the widow of Thomas Frith Esq., late of St Vincents, who died 24/06/1806 aged 52, 'both daughters of Edmund Akers of St Vincent.'


Jim Smith has transcribed the indenture concerning Friths estate dated 07/11/1812 and entered 24/01/1814 for which he gives the reference 'from Grenada Registers of Records Item 2 of the microfilm FHL [1563379]', and which shows the assignment of Friths to Nathaniel Smith by Thomas and Rachel Frith to secure £4000 in 1776, and subsequently Sir John Boyd (who had purchased the equity of redemption for Friths) and John Trevanion issuing a bond for £80,000 to secure their debt of just under £40,000 to Nathaniel Smith in 1794, http://agenealogyhunt.blogspot.co.uk/2010/09/part-367s-smith-robertson-genealogy.html [accessed 190/03/2018].
