Maternal grandmother: Ann Vertue (born 1742 died 1813)   View NotesHide notes  

On children’s birth records she is listed as Marie Anne L’Heureux. However, all the evidence is that her original name was Ann Vertue. The church was the French Church of Threadneadle Street and Peter Guillebaud’s name was also “Frenchified” to Pierre.

Hannah Roberts in her will of 1818 describes Peter Guillebaud as her brother-in-law, even though by then he had remarried. Gearing Roberts describes Ann as his niece in his will of 1782. Both these factors make me sure Ann is daughter of Simon Vertue and Hannah Roberts.

Ann’s burial at non-conformist Bunhill Fields, 10th May 1813, put her age as 71. This is how I arrive at her birth in 1742.

married 1778 City of London

Maternal grandfather: Peter Guillebaud (born abt 1740 died 1821 Spital Square, Norton Folgate, London) ( died Spital Square, Norton Folgate, London)   View NotesHide notes  

Described as her brother-in-law by Hannah Vertue’s will. Peter’s wife may well have been Ann Vertue, who was buried in Bunhill Fields 1813 age 71.
