Claimant or beneficiary

Biography

Awarded part of the compensation for Tryall estate in Hanover Jamaica with others, ownership apparently descending from the Acres family of Hanover.

  1. George Sandby (c. 1769-1852), son of 'George of Denton, Norfolk, doctor',  matric. Merton 17/04/1786 aged 17 BA 1790 MA 1793 Rector of Earsham Norfolk 1809, died 08/02/1852. This George Sandby had a son in turn, also George, who matric. Merton 19/06/1816 aged 17; BA 1820, MA 1825, rector of All Saints and St Nicholas South Elmham, vicar of Flixton Suffolk from 1842 until his death in 1880.  

  2. George Sandby aged 82 Clergyman without cure is shown as living at Denton Lodge in the 1851 census with daughter Marie [sic] aged 47. George Sandby clerk rector of Denton in Norfolk married by license Mary Acres 'of this parish' at St Michael Cornhill 02/05/1758: one of the witnesses was John Hyde.     

  3. Will of Rev. Geo. Sandby of Denton lodge Norfolk proved 14/04/1852 PROB 11/2151. Rev. George Sandby (c. 1799-23/11/1880) late of Denton Lodge and 32 Cambridge Square Hyde Park left personal estate under £25,000 on his death. It appears therefore as though the Tryall estate in Hanover was associated with the Acres family, given that George Sandby's mother was Mary Acres and that a co-claimant was Francis Acres Hyde, the grandson of Katherine Acres, Mary Acres' sister.

  4. George Sandby DD Rector of St Mary's Church, Denton, 1750-1807. Chancellor of the Norwich Diocese and Vice-Chancellor of Cambridge University. Lived at Denton Lodge rather than the Rectory.
