Daughter of the MP Sir Philip Jennings Clerke and of Anne, daughter of Col. Richard Thompson of Jamaica and Coley Park Reading. The executors of Frances Jennings (General Sir Tomkyns Hilgrove Turner and William Davidson, each of whom q.v.) were awarded the compensation for two estates in St Thomas-in-the-East and for a smaller award in Vere (for the latter the testator was shown as 'Francis' Jennings in the compensation records). The will of her father Sir Philip Jennings Clerke is silent on Jamaica property, while the will of her brother Sir Charles Philip Jennings is extremely brief, leaving everything to his sister Frances Jennings upon her paying £3000 to their uncle John Jennings.
