Extent41 items
Content DescriptionThese letters were sent to Annesley by Mary Ann Hamond's daughter Fanny Hamond in June 1900.

Nothing is known of Anna Maria Jenkins beyond what can be deduced from the correspondence. Her letters are principally concerned with religious reflections and exhortations, with some news of friends and family. Many of the letters are postmarked 'Welford'. A large proportion of the letters are undated. It is possible that Anna Maria Jenkins was the same 'religious minded' Miss Jenkins who maintained a correspondence with the Duke of Wellington between 1834 and 1851 (ref: Norman Gash, ‘Wellesley , Arthur, first duke of Wellington (1769–1852)’, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, Sept 2004; online edn, Oct 2007 [, accessed 14 Nov 2007])

The final letter in the initial sequence of correspondence, dated 3 Mar. 1836, is written in the third person by Miss Jenkins, and refers to the breaking off of their friendship and an agreement to return letters (ChM/C/2/39).

The bundle includes related letters from 'Mary Anne' [probably Mary Ann Hamond], postmarked Greenwich, to Mrs Lachlan [a friend of A.M. Jenkins], dated 17 Apr. 1830 (ChM/C/2/4).

Also one letter from S.C. Musters [Mary Ann's sister Sophia Caroline, later wife of Robert N. Hamond] at Colwick to Mrs Davies at 23 King Street, London, dated 25 Oct. 1831, another mutual friend, in which she describes the sacking of Colwick Hall during the Reform Bill riots and the health of her mother [Mrs Mary Ann Musters] (ChM/C/2/11).

The bundle concludes with two letters, dated 6 and 16 Jul. 1855, sent by A.M. Jenkins to Mary Ann Hamond and referring to a book given by Mary Ann's late mother to Miss Jenkins, which Mary Ann had subsquently lost. (ChM/C/2/40-41).
