Ann Delaune & Thomas Marlay’s children
ANTHONY 1710-1763
Anthony Marlay was Commissioner of Appeals, one of his Majesty’s
Councillors of Law. He married a Martha Ussher in 1740 and they had a
daughter the following year. Sadly both Anthony and Martha died at the
age of 52 & 51 respectively in 1763. Daughter Lettita married Sir Richard
Wolseley, two years after her parent’s deaths. He was an ancestor of
Frederick York Wolseley (see below). I do not know at this point whether
Frederick York Worlesley is a direct descendant of Ann, as I can only trace
their son Sir William (3 Baronet), who did not marry, and their daughter
Matilda who married a Clement Wolseley (no doubt a cousin ) they had a
son, another Clement, and that is as far as I can go. But once again the
Delaunes are linked to another famous family name, amongst the Wolseleys
there was also a Field Marshal, Lord Garnet Wolseley (1833-1913).
Whist everyone has heard of Henry FORD, whose ancestors came from
County Cork, the name Frederick York WOLSELEY may not be familiar. The
Wolseleys’ came from Mount Wolseley and Frederick, an ambitious fellow,
headed off to New South Wales in 1867 where he invented an ingenious
device to shear sheep mechanically. From there he came back to the "home
countries," settling in England where he and Herbert AUSTIN produced the
first British automobile, the Wolseley Three-Wheeler. The Wolseley dominat-
ed the British auto market for some time, and the name was only
withdrawn from the market in 1975. Frederick died in London in 1899 and
his grave was unmarked until 1988 when the Austral-
ians celebrated their county's bicentenary. He died in
Penge and is buried in Elmers End Cemetery.
