John Proctor Anderdon

1760 - 1846

Claimant or beneficiary


Originally (possibly after a period in Bristol) a London merchant, partner in Manning & Anderdon (q.v.) from 1794, retiring in 1816 and thereafter a rentier, connoisseur and collector: father of James Hughes Anderdon (q.v.) and John Lavicount Anderdon (q.v.).

  1. According to the website for the Mount Somerset Hotel (the former Henlade House), John Proctor Anderdon was nephew and heir of Robert Proctor Anderdon of Henlade. Henlade House was built between 1805 and 1815 for Robert Proctor Anderson [sic] and his nephew and heir John Proctor Anderdon. John Proctor Anderdon is identified as officer serving with Duke of Wellington and commander of City of London militia at Waterloo.

  2. This identification is confirmed by Vere Langford Oliver, whose family tree shows John Proctor Anderdon as son of Ferdinando Anderdon and Mary Hobart, and nephew of Robert Proctor Anderdon.
