Lydia White

No Dates

Claimant or beneficiary


A spinster residing at Brussels in 1834 when she counterclaimed unsuccessfully for compensation on Tomlinson's estate in Antigua as a legatee of Penelope Tomlinson.

  1. Penelope Tomlinson was the daughter of Lydia's great uncle, John Tomlinson (d. 1735). In her will dated 18/07/1802, Penelope left, among other legacies, £200 to Lydia's brother John who was aged under 15 at the time. In the event of John's early death, the £200 was to be shared equally between Lydia and her sister Elizabeth Hamilton White - so it seems that John had not survived.


T71/877 Antigua claim no. 111 (Tomlinson's).
