bullet  General Notes:

The only son of Timothy (I) and Hannah, Timothy (II) (l733-1793), was a successful privateer. His prizes included the captured Swedish vessel, the Sophia. acquired in 1781. In 1758 he also married advantageously, gaining property through his wife, Mary, the only child of Ambrose Palmer (the eldest son of William Palmer, landowner, who died in 1771). (ref 1)

The Palmer family were very prominent in Great Yarmouth. Judging from the mentions of the Palmers in the Perlustration (ref 2), they were extensive landowners there.

Timothy and Mary had three sons; William, Timothy (III), and Ambrose Harbord. All were successful as merchants and enjoyed the prosperity that came to Yarmouth as a naval base during the French Wars.(ref 1)
