Biography

  1. Presumably the widow of William Brasnell of Sans Souci, Tobago whose will was proved 17/11/1829. William Brasnell had been a trustee of the will of John Robley (q.v.). Eliz. Brasnell appears as an unsuccessful claimant for the compensation for Mt St George estate and is almost certainly the same as Elizabeth Brasnell widow who claimed successfully under a much smaller claim in Tobago.

  2. If so, then née Elizabeth Buchanan, who married William Brasnell of the Island of Tobago at St Giles Camberwell (her parish) 20/08/1811.

  3. Lucy Campbell Brasnell daughter of William ('merchant') and Elizabeth Brasnell of Sandford Place was baptised at St John Hackney 31/05/1818.

  4. The will of Elizabeth Brasnell of Egyptian House, Jersey who died 18/04/1860 was proved 16/07/1860, effects under £3000. Her daughter and executor Emma Georgiana Brasnell was born in Tobago c 1827.

  5. The compensation for Sans Souci was paid to Margaret Wilson as executrix of Elizabeth Campbell.
