Isabella LE NEVE [23025]

  • Died: 1759
  • Buried: Ringland NFK

bullet  General Notes:

The Phillips Manuscript has this to say: "Copy of Monument in Ringland Church. Sacred to the memory of Isabella Le Neve, late of Arlington Street, Westminster, eldest daughter of Oliver Le Neve of Great Witchingham in this county Esq., who was younger brother of Peter Le Neve Esq., Norroy King of Arms. She divided her property which was very considerable between Peter Le Neve of Norwich Esq., her nephew and the children of her sister Elizabeth who married Hugh Pigot Esq. a captain in the Navy". Obviously Phillips has made a slip of the pen, as Isabella had no sister Elizabeth and an examination of the actual monument confirms that the word given by Phillips as "her" is in fact "his". Of course this alters the whole sense of the statement and makes it quite clear that what actually happened was that Isabella left her fortune to be divided between her nephew Peter Le Neve and the children of his sister Elizabeth, that is, the two Pigot children, her great niece and great nephew. As Isabella died in 1759 at the age of seventy-four and Peter, her nephew in 1760 aged forty-one, he gained little from his inheritance, but no doubt his daughters did so as they were able to make some quite extensive land sales at a later date.
