Drawings & Watercolors
Anne was the daughter of William Paget, a retired surgeon of the 48th Regiment and pearl merchant in Ceylon. Anne's parents died early. She was an orphan when she met Thomas Best Jervis and married him in 1830. They had two children, William Paget Jervis (1831-1906) and Annie Jervis (1834), and the family eventually returned to England. Anne died in Naples (likely while visiting her children in Italy) and was buried in the English Cemetery there.
