Nathaniel Elliot

???? - 1811


London West India merchant, partner in a predecessor firm of Wilkinson & Gavillier (formerly Nelson & Adam) until 1798. His will shows him to have made the transition from mercantile activity to rentier status.

  1. Will of Nathaniel Elliot [late of Hackney but now] of Exeter [made in 1808] proved 07/11/1811. He placed the estate named (by him) Longbrook in West Alvington, that he had formed through at least two separate land purchases, in trust for his minor son Nathaniel (born in 1799) subject to annuities of £20 p.a to his brother and £50 p.a. to his wife Sarah. He left £5000 in trust, 2/3rd of the interest from which was to go to Sarah and 1/3rd to support Nathaniel. He left Sarah the use of his house at St Sidwell Exeter for life, in a codicil of 1811 substituting his house at Kingsbridge after he had sold the house at St Sidwell.


  1. PROB 11/1527/68.
