  • Notes 
    • Debrett's Peerage of England, Scotland and Ireland (1808), referring to Alexander's great-granddaughter, explains:
      "... Jane Batchelor, of Kent, whose mother was _____ Weller, of Rolvenden, in Kent, a family connected with large landed property; which, by a female heir, with the mansion-house of Charlton Hall, in Kent, was transmitted by marriage to sir Thomas-Spencer Wilson, bart. and is now possessed by his son, sir Thomas W. Wilson, bart. This family of Wellers long served as military, and particularly as naval officers; and there are at this period, or were recently, in the navy, descended by the females from the Wellers, of Rolvenden, four admirals and post-captains, viz. - the two distinguished admiral Packenhams, and captains Ball and Henry."
