Claimant or beneficiary


Son-in-law of Clementina Ogilvie formerly Perry nee Clarke (q.v.) and through his wife interested in property in enslaved people in Jamaica. Party to the Chancery case of Marshall v Wedderburn, into which the compensation for Langley Park was paid. The case arose from the will of George Ogilvie made 01/08/1782 with a codicil of 1791, and reflected the efforts of the son Simon Taylor Ogilvie (formerly Simon Taylor Clarke) the son of George Ogilvie's nephew and heir under the will George Clarke to assert an interest in the estate of George Ogilvie, who in his codicil had diverted the legacy to George Clarke's sister Clementina, Rev. William Marshall's mother-in-law.

  2. A commercial website carried an advertisement for an MS letter fro Richard Jenkyns, Master of Balliol, to William Marshall written in 1823: 'Item Description: Balliol College University of Oxford. 4 December, 1823. 2pp., 8vo. 29 lines of neatly-written text. In fair condition, on aged paper, with two 5 cm closed tears to leaf. Addressed to 'My dear Marshall'. He regrets that his letter should contain 'so truly painful an account of the state of your family & affairs in the West Indies', but was 'glad to receive it, since after my last communication I was at a loss, not seeing you in Oxford, to explain your silence - I hope at some future occasion, I shall see you again under my roof'. Regarding William Tierney Elton (d.1874) he writes that on referring to his 'list' he sees that 'Mr: Elton's name is entered for admission in some part of the year 1825', and it gives him 'real pleasure to hear so favourable a report of him, & I trust he will do credit to his Tutor & College'. He is sorry that he has 'no means of forwarding the views of your Nephew at Westminster', only having 'little acquaintance' with the Dean of Christ Church', who has 'many & strong applications' to deal with. He concludes with a reference to '[t]he admirable & invaluable member of our Society for whom you gave your last vote as Fellow of Balliol (), has within the short space of seven years, the option of vacant by the melancholy death of poor Rogers'. He concludes in the hope of seeing Marshall again 'within the walls of old Balliol'. Bookseller Inventory # 16389.'
