William Gordon of Hanover

???? - 1838

Claimant or beneficiary


The will of William Gordon of Hanover [made at Tryall in 1838] proved in London 03/04/1839 ties together the testator with the William Gordon who was executor of Neil M'Callum and with the William Gordon who was the attorney for Tryall (and by extension with other estates in the Allen family), and [with a little less certainty] also with the William Gordon who was attorney for Simon Haughton Clarke's estates (q.v., under William Gordon Attorney of the Haughton Clarke family). Some of the smaller compensation awards currently associated with this man might refer to a different man; conversely, there might be other attorneyships not yet associated in the database which belong to William Gordon of Hanover.

  1. In his will he left legacies of: £100 currency to Jane Gordon an apprentice on Retirement in St James [a Haughton Clarke estate, although not one on which William Gordon is known to have been attorney]; £300 currency and £20 p.a. to Harriett Fraser on Fathog Quarter in Hanover [a Haughton Clarke estate on which William Gordon was Attorney]; £500 currency to his son Hugh Gordon; £100 currency to Ann Grant, an apprentice on Tryall for her attention to me during my late sickness. The rest of his estate he left to his nieces and nephews, the children of his brothers Peter Brodie Gordon and Daniel Gordon, both of Glasgow. He appointed an executor in London, George Webster of Palace Yard, Westminster, in relation to the property of Neil M'Callum, of whose will William Gordon was executor.
