Elizabeth Bogle French (née Jackson)

1790 - 1829


Biography

Only child of William Jackson, late Chief Justice of Jamaica. Married Nathaniel Bogle French junior of Dulwich 05/11/1811. Nathaniel Bogle French junior was born in 1786, the son of Nathaniel Bogle French senior (1758-1816 - some sources give 1817) and Elizabeth nee Skottowe (1761-1803). Nathaniel Bogle French jun. died 27/04/1816. The family firm (from which Nathaniel Bogle French jun. retired in 1811) failed in 1815.

  1. Vere Langford Oliver recorded a memorial in Clifton Churchyard in memory of 'ELIZABETH BOGLE FRENCH of the Island of Jamaica, Widow Obiit 19th April, 1829 at Clifton Aetat 39.' This is consistent with the sequence of entries for her estates in Jamaica in the Slave Register, which move from her to 'the estate of Elizabeth Bogle French' c. 1829.
