Joseph Lyons Walrond

1752 - 1815


Biography

A slave-owner in Antigua, dying in Britain in 1815, father of Bethell Walrond (q.v.).

  1. Son of Maine Swete Walrond of Antigua, matriculated St John's Oxford 06/07/1770 aged 18, fellow 1770-1772 [sic], of Dulford House Devon, died 13/01/1815.

  2. Will of Joseph Lyons Walrond of Grosevenor Place Middlesex proved 08/05/1815. He had agreed and an annuity of £2100 p.a. for his wife Caroline should she survive him, £1500 p.a. payable from his estates in Antigua and £600 p.a. from the interest on £20,000 which he had settled in trust on his marriage. She in turn had determined to renounce £500 p.a. of this settlement, and in his will Walrond accordingly reaffirmed the £600 p.a. from the settled £20,000 and provided in addition £1000 p.a. from the dividends 'of my property in the public funds' [implying capital of at least £30,000 in these public funds], 'so that her mind might be more at ease in case of failure of my estates in the West Indies.' He left the rest of his estate in trust to provide '£30,000 3 per cent Imperial Annuities' to his second son Bethell Walrond provided Bethell lived until 01/01/1825, half to be paid to him on that day and the other half to be paid either then if Caroline Walrond were already dead or on her decease if later; the remainder of his estate was to pass to Joseph Lyons Walrond's oldest son Lyons Walrond, again provided that he lived until 01/02/1823 [he in fact died in 1819, and the combined inheritance passed to Bethell Walrond].
