Mother: Ann Fisher (born abt 1680 died 28 Oct 1729 St Margaret Lothbury, London)   View NotesHide notes  

Buried in the 'middle', ie inside the church, at St Margaret Lothbury, November 1st 1729.

See will attached, in which she leaves her Gold Watch to Sonn Henry and also mentions daughters Hannah, Ann Fuller, sons Gearing and John, sister Fisher and brother Edward Roberts (presume she means brother in law?).

The addendum to the will confirms Mary Fisher as a spinster - meaning Ann’s maiden name most probably was Fisher. The addendum also confirms Ann’s date of death.

Brother: John Roberts (born 1711 died 1783 )   View NotesHide notes  

Buried “in the middle” of St Margaret Lothbury, City of London, 14th January 1783 aged 71. His brother Gearing and parents were also buried there. The middle is taken to mean in the church itself, although no gravestone can be found there with the Roberts names on. The church was designed by Christopher Wren and would have been fairly new when his parents were alive/died.


Husband: Simon Vertue (born 1705 Debach died 1742 )   View NotesHide notes married 1733 All Hallows  

Simon was a Merchant Tailor living in London according to attached will believed to be his which also shows he married Hannah Roberts in 1733. At that time (1733) he subscribed to poems on several occasions according to records on Ancestry.

In the will he also mentions cousins Stephen Abbott and John King.

Gearing Roberts. The Mark of Bridget Couttier. Benja Cooke - the last line of the will, witnesses. Gearing Roberts died in 1783 at the age of 78 and was presumably a relation of his wife, see also attached burial record and FMP have probate records for him.

See also attached Indenture, in Ancestry’s Freedom of the City section. For the cost of £35, quite a large sum at the time, Simon signed 7 years of his life away to become an apprentice Merchant Taylor. 

”This indenture witnesseth, That Simon Vertue son of Simon Vertue late  of Doabauch in the County of Suffolk Yeoman deceased (the sum of thirty five pounds being paid or secured to the Master ...) ... to Philip Glass – Citizen and Merchant Taylor of London ... 7 years ... He shall not commit Fornication nor contract Matrimony within the said Term. ... He shall not haunt Taverns or Play-houses, nor absent himself from his said Master’s Service Day nor Night unlawfully: But in all Things, as a faithful Apprentice, he shall behave himself towards his said Master, and all his, during the said Term...” Extract - view image for full story.


Daughter: Hannah Vertue (born abt 1739 East Bergholt, Suffolk died 1817 Hackney, Middlesex)   View NotesHide notes  

Hannah Vertue left a sizeable will, see attached. Also was named in will of Gearing Roberts as his niece, see attached.

Gearing Roberts was buried in St Margaret Rothbury and asked to be buried near his mother and father and was located in the middle. John Roberts also named on his will but died shortly before him aged 72 was also buried in the middle. The only matching Roberts buried in the middle who could have been their parents were James, buried 3rd June 1723 and Ann, widow, buried November 1st 1729 - both in the middle - see attached images.

Daughter: Ann Vertue (born 1742 died 1813 ) 3 children   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.

Husband: Thomas Anthony Jenkenson (born 1740 )  

Husband: Peter Guillebaud (born 1740 died 1821 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.

Listed in various directories 1776-1885 on ancestry, for example:

Peter Guillebaud, weaver textiles, 16 Stewart Street, Spitalfields, London. Listed in The Complete Pocket Book, or Gentleman and Tradesman's Daily Journal, for ... 1779, 1779. London

Printed by J. Johnson and J. Payne

Son: Jacques Guillebaud (born 27.11.1769 London )   View NotesHide notes  

Baptised at The French Church of Threadneadle Street 24 Dec 1769

Daughter: Marie Anne Guillebaud (born 20.8.1771 London )   View NotesHide notes  

Baptised at The French Church of Threadneadle Street 15 Sept 1771

Died after 1823, the year her will is mentioned in the attached legal case. By 1821 she was a widow. She left 30,000 in stocks, but in a somewhat confused state that had to be ruled upon by Lord Chancery.

Son: Peter Guillebaud (born 1773 London died 1.3.1867 Somerset)   View NotesHide notes  

Baptised as Pierre Guillebaud on 25 July 1773 at the French Church at Threadneadle Street

Hannah Roberts Notes:

Presumed to be the brother of Gearing Roberts, from names of cousins, nieces, etc named in his will. Also, Gearing was mentioned in Simon’s will of 1742. Parents assumed to be the same, due to burial in the 'middle', inside St Margaret Lothbury church in London. In his will he expressed his desire to be buried close to them.
