Arthur Annesley (VIII) was a younger son
of Francis (VI). He inherited the house
at Lincolns Inn (see E6/10/1D), and
became a lawyer. He never married, and
on his death in 1786, his property was
mainly divided between his nephew
Francis (VIII) and great-nephew Arthur
In addition to his London house, Arthur
(VIII) bought much land in Huntington-
shire (see E6/12).
The papers here mainly concern settling Arthur
(VIII)'s estates after his death.
NOTE: A copy of Arthur (VIII)'s will may
be found at SL11/1/1L/1. SL18 (the
Aplin and Hunt papers) include other
versions of his will, and a settlement
of 1764 concerning his mother Ann
Gayer's family property.
