Harriet Spooner (née Luard)

???? - 1833


Widow of Hungerford Spooner 'the younger' (q.v), dying in 1833 in Lincolnshire.

  1. Will of Harriet or Harriot Spooner of Kensington Square [made in 1831] proved 08/03/1834. She left to Rev. John Bourryau Spooner [not further identified in the will, but her brother-in-law] four shares in the Witham Navigation on condition that he returned her bond for £440. She left personal effects to the children of her late brother Peter John Luard. She had inherited £11,000 under the will of Elizabeth Broadley of Blyborough Lincolnshire and she left this sum together with the arrears of her annuities charged on Charlottenburg and Pembroke Hall in trust to be divided equally among her nephews and nieces, children of her brothers Peter John Luard and Francis Luard. In a codicil of 1831 she said that she had some years previously promised Charles Spooner of Dover Street an annuity of £50 p.a. from the date of death of her husband Hungerford Spooner, together with a legacy of £1000, all to be paid only from the money that might be payable out of Charlottenburg and Pembroke Hall and not from her regular estate, and she had issued a bond for £500 towards the arrears and the principal. In a further codicil of 1832 she left £2000 to her nephew Capt. John Luard to buy a promotion, he having been promised the money by his father and it not having been forthcoming.
