Anthony Todd

???? - 1798


Anthony Todd in 1774 purchased an annuity of £50 p.a. for the lives of his niece Ann [sic] Colling and his daughter Ann, secured on the property (including enslaved people) of John Abel Ward (q.v.) on Nevis, as part of a large group of similar annuitants. Anne Colling married Anthony Brownless at St Cuthbert's Darlington, Co. Durham 22/02/1779 but has not been traced further by LBS; Todd's daughter Ann appears to have predeceased him (she is not mentioned in his will). Todd was also among the 23 purchasers appearing in a deed on 1774 under which Augustus Gwyn (q.v.) sold annuities secured on the Mount Charles estate and Middleton Pen. Neither annuity is mentioned in his will.

  1. Will of Anthony Todd of the General Post Office of Walthamstow proved 26/06/1798. After monetary legacies and small annuities to family and servants including his niece Ann Brownless, he left his estate in trust for his daughter Lady Lauderdale (Eleanor, wife of James Maitland, 8th Earl of Lauderdale). Arthur Balfour, the British Prime Minister, was a descendant though James Balfour MP who married Lady Eleanor Maitland, Anthony Todd's grandson.
